Ruined Plans

I had a pretty good list of things I wanted to accomplish this Friday evening. But, I got none of them done. Not a one.

I blame Tess Gerritsen.

See, after an afternoon nap, I sat down to read a bit of Ms. Gerritsen's book, The Surgeon. A bit turned into a big bit. And another chapter. And just a little more. And then, by that point, I might as well just finish.

Aside from breif interruptions to take care of nature and snap at Hubby for disturbing me, that was my afternoon and evening.

Not a wasted evening, by any means. I enjoyed the book a great deal.

But I do think that Gerritsen's books should come with a warning label. "Do Not Start Without Time to Finish" or something. Maybe her name on the cover is the warning? At least for the Jane Rizzoli/ Maura Isles series. I had a similar problem with The Sinner. At least I know that I shouldn't start the next book (The Apprentice) without adequate time to finish it.

Which, it's a good thing I don't have any other of her books yet. I wouldn't get anything done the next couple days! =)

All of her books are dynamite. As you delve into them, you're in for a treat.
