New Addiction

I have a new addiction.

I dont know why I never watched Mad Men before but I'm in love with this show now! I'm currently watching season 2 (I'd watch season 1 but it's not on OnDemand) & I'm trying to catch up before tomorrow nights season 3 premier. Rusty's not gonna like it cause there's so much to do around the house but all I'm gonna do today is be a lump on the bed & watch Mad Men. And omg...I cant get enough of the men on that show, they're sooo handsome.

On a non-fanatic note, I finally finished reading The Likeness the other night. I swear it took me forever to get through it. Not because it wasn't good, because it was, but because I had no time to sit & relax. I have to say, Tana French has talent. I got to know the characters so intimately that I felt everything that was going on. I was literally part of the story. If you're looking for a fantastic mystery/fiction to read this is definitely one you want to read. I read the book before this one,
In the Woods, & I enjoyed it as well.

FYI - here's a little info about The Likeness (courtesy of the books' jacket):

Six months after the events of In the Woods, Detective Cassie Maddox is still trying to recover. She’s transferred out of the murder squad and started a relationship with Detective Sam O’Neill, but she’s too badly shaken to make a commitment to him or to her career. Then Sam calls her to the scene of his new case: a young woman found stabbed to death in a small town outside Dublin. The dead girl’s ID says her name is Lexie Madison – the identity Cassie used years ago as an undercover detective – and she looks exactly like Cassie.

With no leads, no suspects, and no clue to Lexie’s real identity, Cassie’s old underc
over boss, Frank Mackey, spots the opportunity of a lifetime. They can say that the stab wound wasn’t fatal and send Cassie undercover in her place to find out information that the police never would and to tempt the killer out of hiding. At first Cassie thinks the idea is crazy, but she is seduced by the prospect of working on a murder investigation again and by the idea of assuming the victim’s identity as a graduate student with a cozy group of friends.

As she is drawn into Lexie’s world, Cassie realizes that the girl’s secrets run deeper than anyone imagined. Her friends are becoming suspicious, Sam has discovered a generations-old feud involving the old house the students lived in, and Frank is starting to suspect that Cassie’s growing emotional involvement could put the whole investigation at risk. Another gripping psychological thriller featuring the headstrong protagonist we’ve come to love, from an author who has proven that she can deliver.

Anyway, I just wanted to say for the record 'I loved it!'. Now I'm going to get started on reading Pride & Prejudice & Zombies, which I won from a giveaway Mrs. B hosted a couple of weeks ago. I've heard great things about it so I'm excited. I hope it's as good as it was hyped up to be :)

  1. I've been dying to start with Mad Men! I'm going to have to wait until Season 3 is on Netflix. :)
