The Beast Of Bath by Chasity Bowlin is a great read. This is a fairly quick read, perfect for those with limited time for reading. Ms. Bowlin has given us a book that is well-written and furnished with outstanding characters. Thessaly is running from her step-father when she's rescued by Victor. Their story is full of drama, action, humor and sizzle. I enjoyed reading The Beast Of Bath and look forward to reading more from Chasity Bowlin in the future. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.
The content of the stories in The Sea Beast Takes A Lover by Michael Andreasen ranges from the bizarre to the more bizarre. Looking below the surface of the stories though, common themes do emerge. Each story seems to find its anchor in a character's need to be loved. In these completely unrealistic, often disturbing stories, the author manages to capture this very human emotion. It is this intensity that keeps me reading.

We found out we are moving back to the US sometime mid-summer. So now we are just waiting for our orders (telling us where we are moving to) to start the out-processing/clearance process. I am re-adjusting my summer reading plans and delaying grad school. I am really happy to be going "home" but I will miss some parts of living in England.
To deal with my anxiety and stress (you would think I had a better handle on military moves considering this is my fourth move, but nope), I have been stuffing my eReaders with as much content as possible. One reason is that when we get close to leaving, my eReaders and laptop will be my only entertainment for weeks, since we will be staying in hotel rooms or temporary lodgings once back in the states. Second, my print collection will be on a boat with my other household goods, and that can take up to two months for it to arrive at our new house. So I am very dependent on easily portable reading material and puzzle books.
