Finished book#27- KIngdom Keepers: Power Play (#4) by Ridley Pearson

I got into this one more than the 1st 3 books & will be picking up Shell Game (#5) today.

Book 6 was released this month. My library doesn't have it yet though. I need to ask them if they have an order in for it, otherwise I will need to find it somewhere else. I went to the author's website & it says book 7 will be released a year from now. There was no front pic or title for it yet.

I'm number 25 on the hold list for number 6. Can't wait!

Finished number 13: City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare

I didn't enjoy this one as much as the first three. Maybe it's because I read that originally the series was supposed to be a trilogy and I see that the third book would have been a fantastic place to stop the series. I mean, for at least the main characters. I'm just to the point where I think they deserve to be happy and not beat up anymore but alas, that wouldn't make a good story.

Up next: City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare (AKA Book 5 in the Mortal Instruments Series)

I read a lot of Christian Inspirational books, fiction & non fiction. So maybe just say the book is Christian ficton (or other religion) to give a heads up to any who might be offended. You don't have to give a detailed review, just whether you liked it or not. I go from on extreme to another in my reading, lol. I'm always looking for good Christian/Inspirational novels as well as the latest slicer/dicer books.....

Haven't been here in forever. School has taken up a bunch of my reading time. I did finish HP6 and started HP7 but decided I wanted a funner book first so now I'm reading Confessions of a Shopaholic. I'm only on chapter 6 but I'm enjoying it so far. (Did I write this book? lol)

After that and HP I need to start/finish Under the Dome before the show starts.

I only have on school project left and I hope to complete it this weekend. Then it's ME reading time for the rest of the summer. YAY!

I downloaded all 12 of the Anne of Green Gables series (offered on my Kindle for $0.99 for all 12!) so they will be my go-to books when I'm out of new ones. I'm on Chapter 9 of the first book, but my Mothers' Day present from DD#2 arrived today, and it's fairly screaming "READ ME! READ ME!" It's the new Anne Perry, a Thomas and Charlotte Pitt mystery and I can't resist. I'll probably finish it over the weekend and then back to Anne Shirley.

I love this series and other Sophie Kinsella books. I wish they'd done a better job with the Shopaholic movie but what can ya do?

28. Drums of Autumn, Diana Gabaldon
29. The Fiery Cross, Diana Gabaldon.
30. Breath of Snow and Ashes, DG
31. Echo in the Bone, DG

Now I have a quandary -- I have two 2-week books from the library (one due this Sunday) that I really want to read, but I'm SO enjoying rereading the Gabaldon books - there are 2 more - that I can't bring myself to stop! But the other books will be there to take out again when I'm done, I guess!

I am not doing well with books this year. I'm trying to be more open-minded about what I read and that's not working out well for me.

I've *quit* several books this year so I am not counting them in my totals.

I started reading Melt Method which is a self-help book about eliminating chronic pain through fascia manipulation. Not sure why I read this as I don't have chronic pain but it was rated very well on Amazon and I found the concept interesting. It was interesting, but the author spent a LOT of time in the book talking about how she discovered this method and it did start to bore me. Then, the book started in with pictures and, well, I have the basic Kindle, so that didn't go well.

Then I started with The Teleportation Accident which got a glowing review in the Washington Post. After about 25% completion of the book, I couldn't take it anymore. I can't even explain it.

I'm now reading Spellcaster which may or may not be a YA book. It seems like it. It's okay. Kind of on the level of a Nora Roberts book but for teens. Not sure why I am reading it. I am sure I'll finish it because it's easy enough.

I've *really* got to find a good book!!!

Lots of updates. Some I have doubled up because they were such quick reads

#49 Hearing her Voice: A Case for Women Giving Sermons by John Dickson & Bourgeois Babes, Bossy Wives and Bobby Haircuts: A Case for Gender Equality in Ministry by Michael Bird-about women in ministry

#50 Expectations by Frances Murray and Georgiana Darcy's Diary by Anne Elliott-more Austen fan fic

#51 The Anti Depressant Fact Book by Peter Breggin-the author has a strong bias against anti depressant drugs and I didn't agree with the vast majority of this book

#52-#55 Polly's Story, Grace's Story, Isobel's Story & Eugenie's Story by Jennie Walters-the first three are three generations and their relationship with a place and people of Swallowcliffe Hall as servants, the last one is from the point of view of one of the family of the house-all very Upstairs Downstairs and Downton Abbey and I loved them.

Goal - 100 books

Book #29 - "Secrets of Shakespeare's Grave" by Deron R. Hicks.

This was a fun YA mystery about the Letterford family who own a printing business. Daughter Colophon Letterford stumbles across a mystery that just might save the family business, but will she make it out of the graveyard alive?

This was darling! The writing was fun and easy to read, and the mystery was enjoyable. Like I said, this is definitely for the younger set. I'd say my 11 year old twins would like it very much! I look forward to the next book in the installment.

Next up: "Animal Farm" by George Orwell (I never read it in high school, and it's required reading for my daughter next year, so I thought I'd give it a try.)

I hate it when I get into a reading 'funk'. I have 4 books on my abandoned shelf at Goodreads. Just the word abandoned makes me feel guilty, lol.
At the beginning of the year I had two lists I was going to chose my books from. One was an editors top 25 & the other was a reader's top 25 for 2012. I read a few of them but had to give the lists up as some of the best rated were just 'meh' for me.
Hope you find something good soon!!

16/30 - Defending Jacob by William Landay

Finally, finally, a book I loved from beginning to end! It was so hard to put this one down. Can't say much more other than I just loved it.

5/5 stars
