I got a book in the mail today! I received The Essential Cake Boss by Buddy Valastro through the GoodReads First Reads program. At first glance, it looks pretty neat. I look forward to reading through it.
I picked up a couple of fun books at the library this week. My hold on Fortunately, the Milk by Neil Gaiman came up. Although I knew the book was short, I didn't realize how cute and tiny it is. I can't wait to sit down with it. I also got Dead Witch Walking by Kim Harrison, which was recommended by My Shelf Confessions. Finally, I was looking through the juvenile section of the library looking for an old favorite scary story when I came across Book of Enchantments by Patricia C. Wrede. I love the Enchanted Forest Chronicles by Patricia C. Wrede. I had heard of Book of Enchantments, but I had never seen it. I am very excited to check it out! Yippee!
Dead to the World by Charlaine Harris: I am a little more than half way through this book, and I am loving it. The Sookie Stackhouse books are a guilty pleasure of mine, and they are so much fun. I am living vicariously through Sookie and her sex-capades with all of Louisiana's supernatural set. Sookie has a good head on her shoulders, and she isn't afraid to go investigating when no one else seems to be interesting in helping her.
Battle Magic by Tamora Pierce: Okay, I am not done with this book, but I am halfway through it. The plot is definitely picking up. There is action, and I am starting to like and understand the characters. Although I did do some background reading on the world this book is set, I feel like I am missing information that would make me more invested in what is happening.
Boneshaker by Cherie Priest: I have just started this book, and I am already intrigued. We have met mom and son, and they have a difficult family history to bear. I have to admit, however, that I fearfully awaiting the introduction of the zombies (zombies scare me).
Things have been going well. I did one of the challenges so far. I am halfway done with Dead to the World and have started Boneshaker. I am also planning on checking out all of the Fraterfest bloggers tomorrow and Monday. Wow, okay, now that I am writing this, I am starting to realize I have a lot to do! I better get back to reading!
