Possibilities

Saturday, October 31st, 2009

Possibilities. I love that word. Lately, I’ve had a strong feeling that some very real possibilities are getting ready to open up for me very soon and that is most exciting…most exciting indeed. The possibilities seem endless. How awesome is that?

I’ve been keeping my eyes open for whatever it is that God has planned for me. It’s kind of like waiting for a present. I feel like a little kid waiting for her Daddy to give her a present. You know how it is I’m sure.

Remember when your Daddy would come home from a trip or from being gone for a while and scoop you up into his arms and tell you how much he loved you and you felt like the whole world was smiling? Then would come the consummate question…“what’d you bring me, Daddy?”…and he would smile and out would come the presents!

Possibilities. What are you bringing me, Abba?

The Eleventh Victim

Sunday, October 4th, 2009

I simply adore Nancy Grace. I think she’s brash, bodacious, brazen, blatant, and bold. A hot mess! I love her. That’s why I was so excited to read her novel, The Eleventh Victim. Sadly, however, I was most disappointed.

The book just didn’t live up to my Nancy Grace expectations. I think it must have fallen short of a lot of folks’ expectations given that it has received mediocre ratings across the board. Quite frankly, it was just a little bit too ambitious.

Nancy obviously meant for this book to be the introductory platform for the character of high-powered litigator turned psychoanalyst, Hailey Dean. The problem is that she tried to lay too much groundwork and, at times, made the roadmap too hard to follow. There was even one scene a bit too reminiscent of a comic book type superhero with a hidden cache of weaponry. How bizarre.

I felt there were too many storylines, too many plots, and too many twists…both faux and real. While Hailey is supposed to be “Miss Thang” and the reason we will read the next book and the one after that, she misses too much and is way too slow on the uptake to be the cream of the crop we are supposed to believe she is.

I’m sorry Nancy but I wasn’t impressed. If you didn’t the first time, I think you need to listen to your editor and heed her advice. If you did the first time then you need a new editor.

I wish it could be more but The Eleventh Victim gets a very generous 3 out of 5 bones. Not a waste of time but not up to the hype.
