the listing of books

January 6, 2015 at 5:26 pm (books) (, , )

Last  year  was  the first  year I  didn’t  list  the books  I’ve  read  since  1998.  There were two  reasons for  this .  One,  I  was getting annoyed  when I  fell behind  and I wasn’t sure if I  remembered  everything.   Two, I  was getting competitive  with  myself over  the numbers.   I  was worried  about not  making better  numbers  than  the  year  before.   Crazycakes.   So last  year, I listed  nothing;  but  i  am going to  list  again.   I  can’t  remember  enough  of  what  I  read off  the top of  my  head.   I know  the Maisie Dobbs  series  was  one  I  started  this  year . (  really  good )  And  I  finished  the Agent Pendergast  series.   I also  know  I  read Devil in  the White  City – which lead  me to  read  more  non-fiction, most  notably  a  book  about Nellie  Bly’s  journey  around  the  world.

The plan  for this  year is to start listing again , but  not  worry   ( too  much  )  about  numbers or  100% accuracy.   and  without  further  ado – the first  two  book of 2015.

Both  of  these  books  were found as I  reviewed  the Teen  section at  the Library.

Dead reckoning  Mercedes Lackey and Rosemary Edghill  As  a  team , these  authors  have  done  a lot of  urban  fantasy.   this one is zombies and steampunk in  the old west – just after  the civil war.    fun

Rock ‘n’ roll in locker seventeen  Shannon Brown  This one  is about a boy  that has an obsession about a rock and roll star that vanished in 1964. So far it  has  been  fun, and not too  over the top  in any way.  Our main  character  seems  like any teenager trying to find  his way.   – looking forward to  finishing this at  dinner
