Oh my god! My life sucks

Okay, so I had every intention of working on book reviews for the next while.
Then my oven blew up.

I have a new stack of book it seems coming from a different publisher for review sometime this week.

Things have to sort themselves out soon... I hope.

But on the topic of Emma.... It was once said that Jane Austen wrote it with the idea that no one would like the heroine but her.
How do you feel about an author who wrote their main character to piss people off?


  1. I think good old Jane would die of delightful fright if she learned the impact her books and characters have had on the world.

    Hope your life starts sucking a bit less. Soon.

  2. Sorry to hear about your oven! Totally blows (pun intended). Joining your from SITS & look forward to reading more reviews in the future as I am always looking for a good read.

  3. I never knew that about Emma. Guess it's good to get people talking about your book, even if you think it will only be about how much they hate your character. LOL

    Stopping in to welcome you to SITS.

  4. Hope all is well with the oven. I LOVE Jane Austen. A novelist that can evoke emotions through their work is brilliant! Welcome to SITS.

  5. The oven... was fixed on the weekend finally.

    And I've said it more then once, I liked Miss Bates in Emma. She's one of my favourite Austen characters.

    To everyone from SITS, Thank You!

  6. Oh, a blown up oven is never a good thing.

    Stopped by from SITS. :)
