I think it may be time for dinner.....

Reading slumps are no fun.

When one is in a reading slump, one does not attempt to break said hellish slump by taking on WAR AND PEACE. Nothing against this massive classic: I've started it many times. No, one does not attempt to free oneself from the dark depths of a slump ....

 ...with a complex narrative with 1298 pages and 134 different characters.....

... but rather something much, much, MUCH lighter. Nay, shall we venture to say "fluffy."  Last night .... I made myself read. For like, two hours! Woot!

And I knew it had to be, shall we say, simpler? Easy to read? Go quickly? So I'm currently reading THE LIAR by Nora Roberts. This is a stand alone. Here's a description:
Shelby Foxworth lost her husband. Then she lost her illusions … The man who took her from Tennessee to an exclusive Philadelphia suburb left her in crippling debt. He was an adulterer and a liar, and when Shelby tracks down his safe-deposit box, she finds multiple IDs. The man she loved wasn’t just dead. He never really existed. Shelby takes her three-year-old daughter and heads south to seek comfort in her hometown, where she meets someone new: Griff Lott, a successful contractor. But her husband had secrets she has yet to discover. Even in this small town, surrounded by loved ones, danger is closer than she knows—and threatens Griff, as well. And an attempted murder is only the beginning …
Published in 2015, it has 501 pages. Think a little Steel Magnolias mixed with a little Sleeping with the Enemy. Basically, it seems Nora Roberts had Julia Roberts (no relation) in mind.

So it was a good evening.  I'm a fast reader and it was on the Kindle so I'm about 50% done.

Tonight I have Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. to watch. Coulson photo!

"The Dirty Half Dozen":

Gonzales and Coulson must find a way to put their differences aside and work together against HYDRA, even if it means teaming up with someone they don't trust.
This is the episode just prior to the Avengers 2 movie coming out on Friday so this one will set the stage for the movie a bit.

Have a great day!

Much love,
