msauvage purple

A night of many italics

Finished The Gift of Fear before I went to sleep last night (uh... that'd be Wednesday night now); started A Nervous Splendor, the Vienna book, this morning and... had a hard time getting into it. The first chapter seemed a little precious, what with the verging-on-pretentious repetition about the price of sugar and the Crown Prince's carriage and what have you. Sometimes I just gravitate towards one book instead of another--it took me forever to get past the first chapter of Carter Beats the Devil, and I still don't know why, because it was completely awesome--so I think it's just a mood thing with me. I'm going to give Vienna another chapter and then, if it's still not happening for me, move on to one of the courtesans books. I'm going through all of this with you, by the way, because not immediately finishing a book makes me feel incredibly guilty.
