Yeah. An aching brain.
In other words, I look for something fun to read. Something that either makes me cry with happiness, makes my blood run cold, or makes me run screaming into the night (it's great if I experience all three). If you're a serious reader, and one who dips into various genres, you know what I mean.
One of my current favorite series is an interesting one written by Charlaine Harris, she of 'Sookie Stackhouse' fame (the t.v. show, 'True Blood' is based on that series). Her new books are about the very small town of Midnight, Texas, where strange, spooky things happen. Most of the citizens living in Midnight have supernatural ties, and as each book progresses, you learn just what those people can do. They are powerful, and in the third book, 'Night Shift', they all join together to stop a huge threat to the town.

All of these books are great Summer reads, but the only thing that saddens me is that 'Night Shift' is supposed to be the last one in the series. The most recent news states that NBC has ordered a pilot, so perhaps 'Midnight, Texas' will have a longer life in book form.
I hope I'm right.
The 'Midnight, Texas' series ('Midnight Crossroad', 'Day Shift', and 'Night Shift'), written by Charlaine Harris, is published by Ace, an imprint of Penguin Random House. You can find all of them at your local library or favorite bookstore. ISBN 978-0-425-26322-8
