It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? (June 28)

Read:

Season of Gifts by Richard Peck (audio from the library)– this is the third book in the Grandma Dowdel series. While, I love the first two book. I thought this one was cute.

Skulduggery Pleasant: The Faceless Ones by Derek Landy (audio from Audible.com) — this one rocks. I have enjoyed every installment of this series and can’t wait for the next. The first book Skulduggery Pleasant was named Irish Book of the Decade.

I posted my review for The Many Deaths of the Firefly Brothers, which I’d finished reading last week.

Reading:

Fugue Macabre: Bone Dance by C. J. Parker (e-book)

Sizzling Sixteen by Janet Evanovich (audio), the reviews have been mixed so I’m not rushing to start this.

I don’t have any idea what print book, I’m going to read next. I’ve been reading a lot of magazines that have piled up in the last few weeks. I did buy The Fiddler’s Gun by A.S. Peterson ,as an e-book from B&N,which I’ve seen one or two reviews and an ad at Unshelved.  I also picked-up Veil of Gold by Kim Wilkins, Night’s Rose by Annaliese Evans (this book came before Prince of Frogs), and Confessions of a Demon by S. L. Wright for the bookstore. So I might read one of those.

Wish List:

Firefly Island by Daniel Arenson — This book was recommended over at The Cajun Book Lady.

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? (June 22)

Read:

Short story called His Soul Inspiration by Dorlana Vann, published in this quarter’s Enchanted Conversation.

I finally finished The Many Deaths of the Firefly Brothers by Thomas Mullen. — I loved this. I will write a longer review later, but this is most likely the best thing I’ve “read” (listen to the audio I purchased from Audible.com) so far this year.

Did Not Finish: The Brontes Went to Woolworth by Rachel Furgerson — I hate to not finish a book, but I just can’t get a handle on this one. I find myself rereading sentence over and over trying to figure out if the person their talking about is real or imaginary or a doll. I’ll leave my bookmark in it if I change my mind, but for now I’m done.

Reading:

Bone Dance (book 2 in Fugue Macabre series) by C. J. Parker — Charlotte is a friend of mine and I very much enjoyed book one in the series, Ghost Dance.

The Faceless Ones (Skulduggery Pleasant #3) by Derek Landy

In the Mail:

I got the new  THE SPARK: Cirque du Soleil from Book Mooch.

Irish Book of the Decade announced !

Irish Book of the Decade announced – National News, Breaking News – Independent.ie.

If you haven’t read Skulduggery Pleasant, (currently being published in the States as Scepter of the Ancients) go out and get yourself a copy today. This book has a good mystery, a sly wit, and WONDERFUL characters. I’ve been handselling this book for years (it was a whole lot easier before the publisher changed the cover and took off the image of Mr. Pleasant and his whip-smart sidekick Stephanie). Skulduggery Pleasant is the first book in a series.
