Late Summer Blues
Maybe it's the Late Summer blues or that wonderful
pregnancy tiredness. I'm feeling the need to fill
up my creative well. I'll be taking a break and
return in early September. You will still see my
face pop up while visiting your blogs.
I'll leave you with some cool things to watch or read.
Backstairs at the White House (1979) starring Leslie Uggams and Olivia Cole based on Lillian Rogers Parks's memoir,
My Thirty Years at the White House.
If you like Urban fantasy, I have a great series for you called The Connor Grey series by Mark Del Franco.
Starting from the first book Unshapely Things and
the 5th book I finished yesterday Uncertain Allies.
A former Druid and Invesigator, stripped of his
abilities has to solve a crime in his neck of
Boston called the "Weird" which is populated
with all kinds of magical creature. It's fantasy noir
at it's best.
Black Orchid Blues by Persia Walker. It's the second book in a series about Lanie Price, a Harlem Society Columnist, who while chronicling the brightest during The Harlem Reinssance finds herself solving crimes as well. I just started it and it's a wonderful book. I couldn't find the first book at the library, I may even buy it to read and keep.
Now, Voyager (1942) starring Bette Davis. I finally have my own copy of one of my favorites.
how a daughter repressed by her tyrannical mother,finally finds the strength to break free and live her own life. If you never seen a Bette Davis movie, this is the one you should see to get why she was and still is a star decades after her death.
Enjoy the rest of your August, see you back here
