Bookshelf II

Finished Reading

Good ones:

Living Dead in Dallas by Charlaine Harris
Reading this was a real treat because for quite some time I couldn’t find the second Sookie Stackhouse book. One thing I found hilarious was I finished this book the night before I went to see Breaking Dawn Part I with my sister. I was settling into my seat for an exhillerating, sexy and extremely breed of blood suckers and of course was completely shocked when Edward didn’t go to the local bar to see his buxom psychic (holds-her-own) girlfriend.

Guts: True Stories behind Hatchet and the Brian Books by Gary Paulsen (Very cool read even if you have never read the Hatchet books)

Ghostopolis by Doug TenNapel (Awesome!!! Why are not more novels to accompany this graphic novel?)
Re-Gifters by Mike Carey, Sonny Liew and marc Hempel (Strong female lead in this graphic novel)
In Odd We Trust by Dean Koontz (Graphic novel is a faster read than Koontz’s novels)
American Born Chinese by Gene Luen Yang (Stories woven together nicely)
Odd is on Our Side by Dean Koontz (Another graphic novel version)
Secondhand Charm
 by Julie Berry (Totally surprised by the monster that is introduced to this fantasy novel)
The Queen’s Man by Sharon Kay Penman (The ending was a total cop out, but it was really well written)
Paula Deen’s My First Cookbook (Yes, she’s a frightening gremlin but the recipes has cute illustrations and are organized well)

Meh:
Miki Falls: Spring & Miki Falls: Summer by Mark Crilley (first two of four mangas, story moves slowly, art pretty, concept good)
Robot Dreams by Sara Varon
Skim by Mariko Tamaki (author) and Jillian Tamaki (illustrator)
Over Sea, Under Stone by Susan Cooper (Quit reading it before I was 100 pages in….there are faster paced things)

 

Still Reading

So you want to be a Wizard? by Diane Duane (Harry Potter except they learn wizarding from a book and no one stops them from screwing up spells=more exciting)
