Extra! Extra! Read all about it!

Let's forget about the freakin weekend for a second and talk about The CW last night.  Holy Vampire Diaries!!  Not only is this show getting even juicier, but so are the men!!  Damon Salvatore dripping wet wearing only a towel??  More, please!!!  And how about The Secret Circle??  Forget that Chris Zylka (Ok, don't forget about him too long..), Fay's new boy toy is smoking hot!!  Between VD and The Secret Circle, The CW is on fire Thursday nights.  

While I'm sure many of you have already met him, let me introduce you to the lovely Pat Hatt and Orlin, his rhyming cat, from It's Rhyme Time.  Have you visited his blog yet??  If not, you so should!  Why?  Because he rhymes and everyone loves to read rhymes!  Plus, he even responds to your comment in rhyme!  If talking to a rhyming cat doesn't make you giggle, then you need to lighten up!

As it turns out, Pat wrote a book called A Not So Barren World.  It's the third book of his series.   I didn't mean to read the 3rd one first.  It was an accident!!  This book is full of adventure, creative twists on old mythology, and humor.  The character development is so well done that you will feel as if these fictional characters were some old high school buddies.  Each character is set up with a unique quirk and an intriguing personality.

The story line itself is very well written and will keep you guessing.  There are two type of books that I hate.  The ones that make you feel all mushy inside and the ones that are predictable.  This book is the complete opposite of both those things.  Well, there's some loovvveee, just not the mushy gushy kind.  

The best part of the book was being able to compare all the things you learned about the author through his blog to the story that he wrote.  Cat time machines?  A movie guru lead character?  Actually, no...The best part of the book was the Supernatural reference.  Wait, how about the ending that leaves you craving for more??  Sigh...I can't pick a best part...  A Not So Barren World gets the Jax seal of approval.  That's almost as good as the NY Times Best Seller list.  Just sayin...

Will you be checking out A Not So Barren World?

Well, now that you listened to my gushing over The CW Thursday night line up and my new book, you can get back to the freakin weekend.  Enjoy!!
