I like murder and mayhem.
Throw in a World's Fair and that's what The Devil in the White City was promising me. So I started reading it.
But I'm just 200 pages into it and I need to put it down. Not because I don't like the book, because I do. And not because I can't handle the murder or mayhem. Because I can.
It's just that the library e-mailed me this morning. Seems like my name has come up on one of my holds: Breaking Dawn by Stephanie Meyer. I was surprised. Because when I put my name on the list, I was number 99. And considering the book hasn't been out that long, I thought I'd be waiting a lot longer before I got my hands on a copy.
But it's in my possession now. And it's mine for the next two weeks.
So I have to put aside the murder and mayhem at the World's Fair. Because right now? Well, the vampires are calling.
