Faerie War by Herbie Brennan ( library Kindle) YA – parallel universes – hell ,Faerie, and our world so far. maybe 13 and up
Zombie autopsies by Steven Scholzman, MD Not a novel in a the traditional sense – just some ‘scientific notes’ that give a snippet of time. feels real. and is gross. but good
Virals Kathy Riches (libkindle) Seriously good sci-fi adventure books for teens. read it on my kindle and was annoyed I couldn’t take in the bath. review here
Scored by Laurie Mclaughlin (lib book) What if instead of the SAT – you whole life was scored. – Started out really good,I want ed to make someone else read it . It ended well, but I didn’t have the same urge to make people read it. I guess it answered enough of the books questions
Secret garden ( kindle free classic) – reread.
Miss Peregrine’s home for peculiar children by Ransom Riggs (library book ) creepy, amazing, different all based on a bunch of found photos. Has to be read in a form where you can see the photos.
Sew Deadly (kindle library) Elizabeth Lynn Casey mystery – south – librarian and sewing . fun, but a little too – “look at the odd rules of the south “- not subtle.
A Modern Witch by Debra Geary ( amazon loan) silly modern witch book , with romance
Heart of evil by heather Graham kindle library loan paranormal romance
Bones of Fairie by Jamie Lee Simner .library book .Beautiful, lovely horror/fairy tale that takes place in the near future after a horrible , devastating war between faerie and our world.
So 2 plus 10 is 12 for January 2012
Mind Over Monsters ( a F. R. E. A. K. S. squad investigation ) by Jennifer Harlow LB
Perdido Street Station China Meiville . ( shelf book ) This one has been stiing on my shelf for awhile. Not sure why . I read King Rant and Un Lon Dun a while ago and enjoyed them. This one is wierd, and fanastial , far beyond the other too. I just finished this last night – a long book , souch incredible world building, really good and 700 pages long. which isn’t really a negative, but it took a long time to read , because it was a whole new world. I kept having to pause to absorb.
so 2 for January so far
So I am not unhappy with last year – the less than idea things , were not things I could do much about. However, that doesn’t mean there aren’t changes I want to make.
I have this challenge to read at least one book a month off my to-be-read shelves. I like fun goals!
For fun and to make me happy – I resolve to pay more attention to my hair. Since it hasn’t seen a pair of scissors in over 12 months , we aren’t talking a major challenge. But I am still thinking streaks.
and I want to start walking to work again and doing yoga on a regular basis. I just don’t want to lose what I gained last year. I just got to get it on the schedule. But more dancing is something we should do. We means a whole bunch of people I know, lots of people thought it sounded great when I mentioned it on facebook. For me dancing feels good. no pain no tiredness, I can dance for a long time and it never feels hard. When dancing is hard, life is not good.
