HI!!! I replied to you in my thread when I first came back, from awhile ago, I don't know if you saw it or not, but it's great to see you again :)

 

I love Urban Fantasy, I haven't read that genre for awhile, I will download the sample!

 

What a cute kitty :wub:

Yes ! It's great that you're back on here. :)

 

I shall inform Madame Naughtypaws that she has another admirer. ;)

 

The first book is Daughter of Smoke and Bone ; I thought it was really clever, a new twist on the genre. :)

Ha ha We have Junior Water Paw (Water Paw is his Indian name :D) because he sticks his paw in the water bowl. And we have Pearl Dirty Fur because he doesn't like to wash his paws which are white socks (yes, a boy named Pearl lol we thought he was a girl when we rescued him walking around the neighborhood. He has a white "pearl" at the tip of his tail :P).

I finished Dreams of Gods and Monsters ; an excellent end to the trilogy. Such lyrical writing, and a great, uplifting message. No spoilers, cos it would spoil the whole series, but if you enjoy urban fantasy, it's a winner, and one of my books of the year . :)

Hmm, might give it a look see. Well, starting with the first in the trilogy, of course. :)

The characters really stick in your mind. Hope you like the look of it. :)

 

Btw, have you tried EE Holmes ? She has a great trilogy too.

Aw, cute ! :) those are great names.

 

Xiao-Xiao has taken to sleeping in my undies drawer ; I'm doing a ( much needed ) clear out, and there are drawers from a big chest of drawers on the floor, which she found and purloined. :lol:

 

Purrloined . Hee.:blush:

I have a box for my shoes and one of our cats has taken a liking to sleeping in it. Someone told me, cat fur is either a condiment or accessory :D

We've got electricians in atm ; the house was built in the early 1970s, and it turns out that the lights weren't earthed at all. It's a wonder no-one was electrocuted. Anyway, tomorrow should be the last day, with a few more checks and rewiring, and the installation of a new fuse box. :)

Thanks. :D

I'm still astonished that the Initial build was such an electrical mess. :o

One electrician is back to.morrow ; it turns out there's another fault, this time in the downstairs rooms. Using the stair light is tripping the fuse box, and he thinks that someone has put a nail or something similar through a cable, which is making a crossconnection. Hopefully, day 3 will be the final day, cos Xiao-Xiao is getting fed up of hiding under my bed when it's too noisy. :)

The electrician is popping back midweek, then that'll be it done. He's going to fit a better diode into the security lights, which will mean they're just as bright but don't suck up 500watts. :)

 

Madame is fast asleep in her snuggle drawer ; I don't think I'll put it back in the chest of drawers, she loves it so much. :D

That sounds good, I'm sure you'll be glad when it's done :).

We had the same with electrics earlier this year - had it fixed once and he did it all wrong, so had to have it done again, therefore ended up paying twice!  Good luck!

Yikes ! :o

 

Hopefully, ours will be okay ; one of our neighbours is a retired electrician and trained the one who did our work (  and came over to supervise a bit, too ). :)
