Friday Reads - 19th Edition

I am sort of reading now, but still very limited... Like, I haven't really finished anything, but still have lots of books on the go.

This Week I am Reading:

The Last Dragonslayer by Jasper Fforde - Yeah, still reading this book. It's not even very long!

Touch of Power by Maria V. Snyder - New Maria Snyder! I was so excited that I was accepted for this from NetGalley. I am even not minding the fact it is a .pdf file because I wanted to read it so bad. It reminds me a lot more of her first trilogy, The Study Trilogy, and that is awesome. I am hoping it continues and it will probably bring me out of my reading slump if the beginning is any indication.

Deja Dead by Kathy Reichs - I have been really enjoying the television show Bones, so I thought I would see what the books were all about. They are very different, though! Brennan is older, has a child, etc. It is cool that the book takes place in Quebec.

Sundays at Tiffany's by James Patterson - I was left waiting around the other day and this book was available, so I started it. It's nothing amazing, but it isn't terrible either. I will probably finish it up this weekend...

The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson - Yeah, I did start this at another moment of waiting around for someone. I had my library books in my car and I have heard good things about this book. I will get back to it eventually, but I have too much on the go at the moment.

Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford - Another book I have been meaning to read forever, started, and still haven't even got back to reading it yet. It seems to be my reading month. I start things, but then don't really get back to them. I still have only read 3 books this month, so I really should finish a couple other things.

On-Going Reading:

Grimm's Fairy Tales - I forgot to post about my two stories this week, but I am still reading them. I will just post about four stories next week.


  1. I had no idea Kathy Reichs set her books in Quebec. I just Googled her, and it looks like she's from Montreal herself. How awesome! This makes me want to read some of her stuff in the near future.

  2. I've heard a lot of good things about The Name of the Star as's on my WishList :)

  3. We are alike in that we read many books at once. We are different in that you actually manage to finish them in reasonable amounts of time. :P

  4. I have been wanting to read Kathy Reichs, but I am in the middle of so many series right now....grrr.HAve also been wanting to read Grimm's Fairy Tales. One day I wil...

  5. **Memory: I had no idea she was Canadian. I was surprised when the book was set in Canada after how Americanized the show is...

    **Peppermint: I am looking forward to The Name of the Star.

    **Debi: I read way too many books at once lately and not really finishing any of them...

    **Starr: I really should have started the Kathy Reichs series, but I was curious.

  6. I will add Touch of Power to my list! Thanks.

  7. Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet was a favorite read of mine last year. I hope you can get back into it soon, as I do think you'll be glad you did.

  8. **Charlotte: Hopefully it continues to be good.

    **TheBookGirl: It is a book I would normally like, so I do hope to get back to it soon.
