One more thing, t hen I'll shut up

So I've been following Eloisa James' "spoiler trail" on her website. The things she mentions as clues are things I did notice, but rather than reading them as signs that Imogen was realizing who Gabe really was, I just saw them as signs of Imogen's confusion over her feelings for the two men. Even the whole Silchester thing (see her April 13 note),where Imogen realized it was Rafe prior to their first lovemaking, I was like "yeah, okay, whatever you say." I think Ms. James was too subtle for my simpleminded ass. I will re-read this book at some point, but for now I'll quit my bitching, and just accept the fact that it didn't work for me.

So I got two wisdom teeth taken out Tuesday morning. Yeow, I'm so glad I didn't get all four. I swelled up so much, I'm just starting to feel better this evening. Well, except for the sinus infection and my period. Somebody put me out of my misery now.

Over at Smart Bitches, they're talking about inaccurate historical names. My name gets bashed several times, but since I'm not a regency-era male, I won't take offense. The only hero named Devon I can think of was in The Windflower, which most squee over, but I don't remember it at all. I read it in high school, and I probably didn't like it 'cuz a dude had my name.

Again I say there is something wrong when an author has to go back and explain her book on her website. I know a lot of readers lover her books although I've never read any. And this whole thing hasn't made me want to try them at all.
