Deals with the Devil are so retro
The Devil's Reprise - Karina Halle

Another day to face, another day to die.


Devil's Reprise : Horror-lite clashes with rock god sexuality.


We left Almost Famous behind this go-round, other than a few "golden god" mentions, and I don't know what to think about that.

On the one hand...I liked being in Sage's head better than I liked being in Dawn's. He came across as a fair representation of a rock star - complete with flaws and all. 

On the other hand...something wasn't quite as punchy this time around with the story, although I loved the characters and the bonds formed in book 2. The personal connections were stronger for me, even if the plot could have used a jolt of adrenaline.

On the other hand...oh wait, I don't have three hands. Never mind. 

The story was creepy, although not necessarily scary. The sex was still hot. And rock stars will be rock stars. So I was good.


It should have been me. But it wasn't. And the music played on.


I can't find fault with a book which pays homage to the hotness of "fashionable denim bell-bottoms and a paisley shirt," if for no other reason than to make me laugh. Because try as I might, I have a hard time imagining Sage now (to be fair though, this pic isn't exactly rock star gear)...

I Sold My Soul on eBay: Viewing Faith through an Atheist's Eyes
I Sold My Soul on eBay: Viewing Faith through an Atheist's Eyes - Hemant Mehta,Rob Bell Interesting concept in which an atheist sells his time to the highest bidder, and at said bidder's request, attends several different churches & critiques the services. Mehta, I think, is sincere but he cuts the charlatans and fools in these churches too much slack.

Retail Hell - Freeman Hall This is the reason I will never ever work retail again: If the customers don't get you, the management will. I thought this was just hilarious and you couldn't make this stuff up in a million years. Much like Jen Lancaster's Bitter is the New Black and Bringing Home the Birkin: My Life in Hot Pursuit of the World's Most Coveted Handbag by Michael Tonello, you will find it hard not to laugh at what happens in a fancy department store. At least I guessed it right and got the department store correct when I said it had to be Nordstroms. I knew several people who worked there and these tales are right in line with what I have heard them say. I hope that the return policy changes as these shoppers get away with murder. (borrowed)
