I often find that if I’m really into a book, I come away from my reading time feeling disoriented if the weather or the mood doesn’t fit with whatever I just read.
Right now, for example, I’m halfway through Jacqueline Carey’s Kushiel’s Scion, the fourth in the Kushiel series, and there’s been some mention of an attendant who recently came from one of the houses in the Night Court, and while, for this person, the experience was something akin to attending one of our massage therapy schools, those familiar with these books will understand that such a place is more like a very elite brothel, though all arts are taught, not just sexual ones.
I mention this because when I put the book down, I was half expecting to see candlelight and fabric hangings instead of my very modern surroundings.
I’ll be reviewing this book over at All Things Girl, along with it’s immediate sequel, sometime in the next couple of months.
For now, though, I really want to fill the tub with water and bubbles, light candles, and read the other half.
