HI! I just wanted to throw in a little nugget here. The Duck races are this weekend. Here is the link if anyone is curious. http://www.demingduckrace.com/
Want to race a duck?
They do that on land or in water...
Want Funnel Cake??? (Oh Yes I do!) Lol
That particular pastry is in abundance. (Yay!)
Want a new T-Shirt with a cool duck on it???
It really is a fun time. Check it out. Right on down to the chili judging and the tortilla toss...

** I was given a copy from the publisher for review**
This was a very frustrating read for me. It was well written, don't get me wrong, but I felt as if I was waiting for something to happen, and it really didn't.
I liked the book. Tess seemed like a great lady. Did I bond with her? No. I never really "felt" this story. While Tess was keeping her distance from everyone, I also felt she was distant from me. I was never able to say "you go Tess," or "give 'em hell Tess," or anything. The closest I came to getting a glimpse of a fantastic woman, was when she was describing to Francesca how seeing the Raphael made her feel. That was great.
I know this is one that I will be in the minority on, but this one was just ok for me. I put it at 2.5 stars.

** I was given a copy from the publisher** Thank you
Conjure House grabbed hold of me from the very beginning, and it never did let go. Even still, I find myself thinking about certain passages in the book.
Conjure won't let you get off of the edge of your chair. I enjoyed this horror/ sci-fi mix. Definitely a must read. I am looking forward to reading more of Mr. Fry's work!
