Just finished Turn Coat by Jim Butcher, and am in the process of re-reading.

Poor, poor Harry. Or maybe poor Thomas. Poor Luccio? I'd say poor Morgan, but... no.
The writing in this one seemed a bit tighter than Small Favor, though still a bit weak. Hopefully that was just an off book. Great plot, great character interaction, and I really really want to own a Tibetan Mastiff I can name Mouse.
And now another year of agonizing while awaiting the next book, which JB being his evil self is already teasing us with - "Changes", starring Harry Dresden and Susan Rodriguez(?!).

The world is therefore not allowed to end in 2010 after all, or at least not until I get my hands on this book.

Just finished The Winter Rose by Jennifer Donnelly.

Wonderful. I love, love, loved it. And will be picking up The Tea Rose as soon as I have a free minute or many.

Dead Men's Boots by Mike Carey. I've been on a dry spell for good books off the new fiction rack, which this one effectively cured. Sort of like a strange combination of Hellblazer, the Dresden Files, and elements that remind me of Neil Gaiman.

Highly, highly recommended.

I'll look it up. Since Carey spent a rather successful stint as writer for Hellblazer, I'm not surprised at the comparisons.

Darkly Dreaming Dexter by Jeff Lindsay.

It's what the first season of the television show is based on. Even though I already know what's going to happen, it's a great read.

Well, I guess I am reading 1984 again. I can never escape Orwell. I have a class called Stalinism and Nazism, and it is the first book we are reading. Oh well, I love the book so no complaints here.

Double gasp! Sounds like a recipe for bottled awesomeness.

I've recently picked up "Mister Be Gone" by Clive Barker and so far, I'm impressed with Clive Barkers writing.

I even bought "Clausen's Key" by Matthew James Eldridge to read next which is supposed to be good fantasy from what everyone has told me.

I recently got The Runelords by David Farland. It's a fairly interesting read. I wouldn't go to say it's a great book yet, but it at least has me wanting to come back and read more, unlike the Spellsong Cycle series by L.E. Modesitt Jr. My sister lent me the first two books of that series and it took me like six months to read the first one and half of the second, when I normally would have read that number of pages in like a month at most. At the rate I'm reading now, I'll have to get a new book of the runelord series every week or two.

Reading the Analects of Confucius. Endless excitement in a yawning way. The back bills this is as ancient wisdom from the east invaluable for today:

"The Master said, a gu ritual drinking vessel that is not a gu ritual drinking vessel - a gu indeed! A gu indeed!"


Feeling enlightened yet?
