Sundays in Bed with… Queen of the Dead

June 24, 2012 In Bed With... 9

Kate at Midnight Book Girl has started a new feature on Sunday mornings to share with everyone what you’re reading in bed Sunday morning before getting to the days activities.

Yesterday I had an unexpected change in plans that resulted in a completely free day.  And since over the last few weeks I haven’t done that much reading (month of June book total prior to yesterday was a paltry 3) I decided to have my own little read and review-a-thon.  I did some grocery shopping and picked up a few snacks and then I settled in.

Stacey Kade Queen of the DeadI finished Fifty Shades Freed (ok) and The Selection (loved) and I read Ten (amazing!) and Rescue Me (a disappointing ok).

This morning I am curling up with Queen of the Dead by Stacey Kade.  I really enjoyed The Ghost and the Goth but just haven’t gotten to the sequels yet.  I’m thinking that maybe I am going to make July a sequel reading month as I have so many sequels that I haven’t read yet.


**Work story of the week**
So this woman calls and has a question, I am trying to answer her question but she wasn’t really getting it and she started to get really upset and then she said (in the snidest tone ever) “What are you?  A secretary or something?  I want to talk to someone that can actually help me.”

Excuse me?  I’m not a really a secretary, but whether I am or not isn’t the point.  Who are you to talk to me like that?  Just because I don’t have some impressive, “important” job, or own my own business doesn’t mean I’m less worthy of politeness or respect.

I hope everyone has a great week!

    OMG I hate rude people! I can’t believe she SAID that! I LOVED Queen of the Dead. I can’t wait to get to Body and Soul. Pandemonium just arrived at my library. I’m excited.

      Pandemonium was really good but it’s like a completely different book, it’s really good, just different.

      And I didn’t care for her rudeness either. Sad thing is that I was trying to help her!

    You do deserve respect! People really suck sometimes! I deal with a lot of assholes in my line of work too and they can be awful!

    I liked Queen of the Dead, I hope you enjoy it. I need to get my hands on the last book.

    Rude people drive me crazy! Where do they get off treating a fellow person that way?! Argh!

    What a snob! Argh, people who think they’re better than others (for whatever reason) make me so mad! We’re all human! Grrr.

    Anyway… Sounds like you had a very productive readathon! That’s awesome! I need to do that, too, but it’s hard with a husband and especially with my son. But my husband is very supportive of me having time to myself to blog, comment, and read, so maybe he’ll be okay with me having a day to just read sometime soon!

    My count for June is really pathetic. I finished one book on the 1st, DNF another book (but read half!), finished 1 book in the middle of the month and now I’m only halfway through the book I started after that. I know I was really busy on my vacation but seriously! I need to finish that book and up my game! But I’ve decided to do a YA Contemporary reading binge after finishing Graceling (and after reading Pandemonium because it’s a library book), including the Jessica Darling books, so maybe those will go pretty fast and I’ll get more read in July. Sorry for the novel of a comment! ;)

      You had a good vacation so don’t worry about the reading! I have been in such a contemporary mood too, but I’m trying to read a lot of series books in July and I don’t think any are contemps, but I’ll mix some in for sure!
