Oh, lovely overload of books! I can't read fast enough.
With my new Kindle Fire, I finished Where Monsters Dwell by Jorgen Brekke and have reviewed and scheduled it. Scandinavian crime with gruesome murders and some interesting characters; if you read Scandinavian crime novels, you have a good idea of what I mean.
Finished The Unseemly Education of Anne Merchant, but have not yet reviewed it. Great title--who wouldn't want to know what an unseemly education involves in a YA novel; however, the plot did not quite work for me. At the conclusion, I realized it was part of a series, but I don't know if I will continue reading.
Reading Aurora: Pegasus, a science fiction book by Amanda Bridgeman. I really enjoyed Aurora: Darwin, and am eagerly following the adventures of the Aurora crew as their new mission takes them in pursuit of old enemies.
Also reading The Arnifour Affair, but I'm not sure if I will finish this one.
In the que of titles on my Kindle that I look forward to reading:
- The Two Mrs. Abbots by D.E. Stevenson
- The Winter People by Jennifer McMahon
- The Lost Boys by Lilliam Carmine
- I Have a Bad Feeling About This by Jeff Strang
- Hetty Feather by Jacqueline Wilson
There are others in the que, but the above are the ones that seem to calling me.
In the Mail:
Two new ARCs (oooh, real pages!) in the mail are also looking good.
juvenile fiction, a while back and really enjoyed it,
so when offered Jim Morgan and the Pirates of the Black Skull,
I jumped at the opportunity.
Another offer that I gladly accepted is The Trickster's Hat by Nick Bantock.
Loved the Griffin and Sabine books with their beautiful illustrations.
I have started it, but it will be a slow read
--short chapter by short chapter--
as Bantock is writing about creativity and has plenty of exercises
(and some more wonderful illustrations, though not as many).
What else is going on? I'm doing some embroidery and making new dolls. They were supposed to be kind of Christmas-y, but as usual are taking off in their own directions.
Also making plans for the grandkids and the holidays. Amelia has designated Camp Jen McDowell Mullen, and we've been sharing ideas for activities to keep the grands busy while we are down at the camp for Christmas.
