My Love Affair with NYC is Over

Published 17/11/2014 by leannecrabtree

So after six trips to New York over the past eight years, I think my love affair with the city is over. I think everything has been done by us that could have, apart from an actual boat ride to the Statue of Liberty but we did get on a boat and go around the island so I think that’s close enough.

This year there were a lot of road works and things happening and it made everything seem so crowded and I didn’t like it. But me and my mum did two things we hadn’t done before; we went to the Central Park Zoo and we went to The Highline.

I’ve added a few pictures I took while there:

I also didn’t get much reading or writing done although while waiting in Manchester Airport, I got a brainwave for how to overcome the bit I was stuck on in my new writing project–the P.I. Romance–and I’ll be writing it in soon and seeing if I can finish the current chapter.

As for the reading, I only managed one and a half books–the Morganville series–and I have to admit I’m not really in any hurry to finish it as it will be hard to leave Claire, Shane, Eve, Michael and the rest of the gang for good…but I must.

Ciao for now 🙂

Tomorrow is the day

In about 7/8 hours me and my mum will be piling into our car and heading off to Manchester airport ready for our flight to New York.

Books: PACKED
Notepad: PACKED
Clothes: Erm…? lol 😛

Yeah, so I’ll be gone a week and when I get back I’m going to do my best to put this blog in order (Sorting out the side widgets and my “Read in 2014” page)

Books for Holiday

Published 06/11/2014 by leannecrabtree

So I think I’ll be taking 5 books away with me because although we might spend a good 8 hours walking around throughout the day, we also spend quite a few hours between trips out in the hotel room.

I’m hoping to finish off Rachel Caine’s Morganville series meaning Fall of Night and Daylighters (books 14 and 15). I’m also going to take book 3 in Julie Kagawa’s Blood of Eden series, The Forever Song. And then the last two will be Gena Showalter’s Alice in Zombieland and Alice through the Zombie Glass.

Hopefully I’ll get at least three and a half books read in the 6/7 days I’ll be abroad 😀
