The Lotus Palace  - Jeannie Lin

(I'm guessing on the page numbers.)


The heroine is an ex-prostitute who is now the servant of a courtesan. She seems to be pretty sharp, and I think I'm going to like her.


I would like nothing more than to go home and continue reading this book. I checked it out last week Friday, for some reason didn't start it until this morning, and then had great difficulty stopping so that I could get ready for work. I should have brought my tablet to work, dang it.


I think I'm finally done with my reading slump, but I'm afraid of losing momentum. I'm still dragging my feet on review writing and am very behind. I may have to declare a bunch of things "not reviewed" and just move on.
