Another week has past already? It's time to celebrate the small things with Lexa Cain and her cohosts: L.G. Keltner and Tonya Drecker!
1. This week I enjoyed the heck out of the third book in Justin Cronin's vampire trilogy: The Passage, The Twelve, and The City of Mirrors. If you like your vampires lethal and monstrous instead of sweet and sparkly, check these books out. Also recommended for fans of Stephen King's The Stand or other apocalyptic works. Not only does The City of Mirrors go for the throat, but the writing of this trilogy is superb. Rarely can a writer go off on a hundred page tangent giving the back story of a character and still keep you enthralled, but Cronin pulls it off.
2. We desperately need rain here, but all this sun makes it great weather to do this:

3. And finally, this coming Tuesday my husband and I celebrate our lucky 13th wedding anniversary. Since I'm not a jewelry fan and do not need more chocolate, we might do what we did last year and chase each other through the neighborhood. Yep, our town holds a July the 4th 5K race. Last year I finished a couple minutes ahead of him (not that I'm competitive or anything), and I think he wants a rematch.
He's going down, y'all.
Read anything fantastic this week? What are your plans for the 4th?
