3.5/5 Good book. Weird, but good. I don't hate it but I don't love it. I enjoyed it while I was actually reading it, but when I put it down I wasn't in a rush to pick it up again. If made into a movie, it HAS to be 3D. The descriptions were really rich and at times I wanted to be able to touch what they were talking about.

Next up is Rush Home Road- after I reread this thread. I made a list of books to read from this thread and had it stored on my phone. I had to reset my phone and lost the list. I am so sad because there were a few I really wanted to read. Hopefully I can find them again.
My thoughts exactly on Night Circus. I loved it while reading it, although it was quite strange, lol, but not something I'm going to rave about.

You HAVE to put Into the Darkest Corner on your phone list! I am currently reading it (100 pages to go). I'm in a quandry - I want to read slow because I don't want it to end, but yet I want to keep picking it up and reading every spare minute I have because I need to find out what happens!!

Private London by Jame Patterson & Mark Pearson

A girl and her mom are kidnapped on her 13th birthday and her father refuses to pay the ransom. So the mother is brutally raped and murdered in front of the child just before the girl is rescued. Later when she is in college in England she is kidnapped again! Is it connected or not?

This is a good quick read with lots of suspense and a few good twists.

Is it okay if I start this now? I think I'll go for about 25 this year. I'm not sure how many I read last year, but I think it'll be a good place.

So far I've got 3 books done. And I'm working on my 4th.

Thus far:
1) The Fault in Our Stars - John Green
2) Looking for Alaska - John Green
3) The Best of Me - Nicholas Sparks
4) *In progress* Mistborn - Brandon Sanderson

Because the last two books were kind of "Eh", I chose "Confessions of a Shopaholic" to read next as #11. OMG-you can just say Sophie Kinsella's name and I start laughing. I love this, and all her books. The only problem is that at the rate I read, her books are a little pricey (I got a GC for Christmas, and the first thing I said is , "I'm buying some Sophie Kinsella books!") Any suggestions for authors who are as (or almost as) funny, but less expensive. I like Stephanie Bond a lot as a substitute, any others?

Goal: 52 books this year

#12 down and done.

Still Life by Louise Penny. Inspector Armand Gamache must solve the murder of a much-loved member of the Three Pines Community, a Canadian town so tiny it's not even on the map. Jean Neal, not even known to be an artist, was killed two days after her painting "Still Life" was accepted to be shown at the local annual arts festival. Was her death related to the painting, or was she killed because she planned a big party, inviting neighbors into her home for the first time since moving in many years ago?

This is the first if the series, and I couldn't put it down. I started reading it at about 8:30 last night and closed it at 2:00 this morning.

Finished book #7: The Eyes of the Dragon by Stephen King

This book was okay. The 2nd half was better reading. It's a fairy tale instead of his usual horror stories. Slow beginning, too much narration, predictable plot, so I give it a 3 out of 5.

A kingdom is in turmoil as the old king dies and his successor must do battle for the throne. Pitted against an evil wizard and a would-be rival, Prince Peter makes a daring escape and rallies the forces of Good to fight for what is rightfully his. This is a masterpiece of classic dragons-and-magic fantasy that only Stephen King could have written!

Next book: The Alchemyst: The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel

I LOVED this book. I am a huge King fan but I wasn't sure about this one. I couldn't put it down. Same with his Dark Tower series. I got totally hooked on that entire series. I own all 7 books and after I am done my current book the next one will be the latest book in the series. I believe it's supposed to be book 5.5 as opposed to 8 LOL

Read the review for it and it instantly went on the list! It sounds fantastic! Thanks : )
