Two Thoughts on Tuesday

First off, I got a late start to writing my Tuesday post for BlogDumps' Top Sites Tuesday meme.  Maybe because I get so involved in reading on my new Nook color that my hubby got me for my birthday/Mother's Day present.  (This year my birthday fell the day before Mother's Day).

I had the choice of getting the very popular Kindle Fire from Amazon but I have been checking out the different readers at the local electronics stores and really liked the Nook Color.  Sure, I'm aware that there are so many added features on the other readers/tablets, but I didn't want all that.  I'm not the kind of person that wants to have the small 7 inch display cluttered with a bunch of apps that I could already use on my laptop computer.  I just wanted something I could enjoy reading on (even at night, in the dark, in bed) or have a few other available activities to do when I'm on the go.  So the Nook fit my needs perfectly and I told my hubby that that's what I wanted...and I got it.  Whoot whoo!

My second thought today is about The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty novel which was written by Anne Rice under the pen name A.N. Roquelaure.  I have this on my new Nook and have been trying to finish reading this.  But I honestly don't know if I can finish it.  I mean, I love the way Anne Rice writes, especially with the Vampire Chronicles series she published.  But this one - oh my gosh! - is extremely shocking for me.  It is by no means anything you'd expect if you are a fan of the original fairy tale.  Don't let your kids get a hold of this book!!!'s not even romantic or close to what they can call erotica.  It's really a sick, twisted tale of mental, physical, and sexual abuse upon young royal captives.

I guess I should've done my research before I started reading it.  I think I'm gonna have to load up on some Dan Brown, Robin Cook, or John Grisham novels instead...these are other adult novel writers I like who don't write that kind of sickening material.  I just hope the people who read A.N. Roquelaure's Sleeping Beauty novels are sane enough to know where fiction ends and reality begins. So if you decide to read this book after I've warned you about it, I hope you are not expecting a dreamy adult version of the classic tale  because this one definitely is not that.
