I'm reading...

After finishing The Rose Labyrinth last night, which I found to be just O.K, I started City of Bones today and since the 100+ challenge starts on Friday, I'm going to attempt to finish it before then! Its interesting to note that J. Kaye of the 100+ challenge gave up on this book so we'll see how it goes. After that, who knows. I have the second Mortal Instruments to read also plus many, many others. Here's a shot of my bookshelves on the wall in my bedroom and we won't discuss the books on my nightstand beside my bed.
Now if only I would stop getting waylaid by children, hockey, and scrapbooking not to mention eating, sleeping, and chores! I mean, let's get our priorities straight here! ;-)


What's On My Nightstand?

>> Tuesday, December 22, 2009

I love the Internet. Truly, I do and if only for stumbling onto some great and interesting websites. Just came across What's On My Nightstand this morning and just have to post!

I just finished reading Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffeneger, author of the Time Traveler's Wife! which I read way back when and really enjoyed so I *highly* recommend it! I quite enjoyed Symmetry as well and it really got me thinking afterwards. This came on the heels of another ghost story Second Glance by Jodi Picoult. Second Glance was my first Picoult novel and while it took a while to get going, once the sub-plots meshed, it was highly enjoyable, especially if you like historical type novels.

Currently: The Rose Labyrinth which the jury is still out on. Another historical novel of a mystery variety but it includes parchments to help you solve the riddles yourself which sounds interesting, but almost too much like work!

I'm very patiently waiting on the next Repairman Jack novel Ground Zero to finish processing at my current library of Publicness. For those that don't know, Repairman Jack is totally awesome,if you like action type novels. The order in which to read the novels though can be confusing so ask if you want to know!

As for what's next? Maybe the first Frankenstein novel by Dean Koontz or City of Bones by Cassandra Clare which I have heard is quite good. My bookshelf is overflowing with the possibilities!
