My fatal flaw

You know how every mythological hero has their fatal flaw? Achilles heel, Harry Potter and his compassion(Not a myth yet. But mythic proportions when you measure the awesomeness.)
Yes, well. I'm no hero, but I do have a flaw of my own.
It lies in shoes.

By Delman Jules, NP. Sigh. They're so pretty. Sadly, though, I seriously don't have the cash to spend on shoes that expsensive. I just spent about an hour looking through all the pretty shoes though. Should you be interested, the link is as follows.

If you are like me, and have a masochistic streak, then by all means. Go look at the shininess. Blame Meg Cabot. She mentioned it first on her blog.
Moving on.
This book is truly amazing. It took me a bit of time to get into it, but I really enjoyed it.

I love historical fiction and this was done really well. Plus, the cover is amazingly gorgeous.
(Pretty shoes, pretty book. Are you seeing a pattern?)
Anyway, I loved it. It's set in the Elizabethan era, in Elizabeth's court. Utterly fabulous. I highly recommend it.
Random note: One of my friends asked me why I only post good reviews about books. It's not because everything I read is amazing. It's just that I think it's pointless to put something negative about a book. Someone worked for hours on that. I'm not going to say that it's terrible, because it isn't. I just personally didn't like it.
Okay, random note and small little rant over.

I love shoes as well and yes sometimes the prices are outrageous so I feel the pain of just 'looking.'

On a happier note I nominated your blog for some awards--be sure to check out the post so you can do them! =D
