I've always been a prolific reader. My family read a lot when I was a kid (growing up in the Frozen Tundra, it's good to have activities to consume the long long winters...) and I've always loved escaping into stories.
This is what I've read this year:
Under the Dome - Stephen King
- Loved this one, I've always been a big Stephen King fan, particularly of his very long works and this one did not disappoint!
Real Murders: An Aurora Teagarden Mystery - Charlaine Harris
A Bone to Pick - Charlaine Harris
Three Bedrooms, One Corpse - Charlaine Harris
The Julius House - Charlaine Harris
Dead Over Heels - Charlaine Harris
A Fool and His Honey - Charlaine Harris
Last Scene Alive: Aurora Teagarden Mysteries Book 7 - Charlaine Harris
Poppy Done to Death: Aurora Teagarden Mysteries Book 8 - Charlaine Harris
- These were fun quick reads. For those who enjoyed Charlaine Harris' writing style in the Sookie Stackhouse books and can't wait until she writes another, these are a fun alternative.
Shakespeare's Landlord: Lily Bard Book 1 - Charlaine Harris
Shakespeare's Champion: Lily Bard Book 2 - Charlaine Harris
Shakespeare's Christmas: Lily Bard Book 3 - Charlaine Harris
Shakespeare's Trollop: Lily Bard Book 4 - Charlaine Harris
Shakespear's Counselor: Lily Bard Book 5 - Charlaine Harris
- I also enjoyed this series. Another fun and fast read. Charlaine Harris says she will not write any more Aurora Teagarden books, but she may write more Lily Bards... depending on time. Not sure if I want her to take her focus away from the Sookie Stackhouse series though.... ;-)
Magic Kingdom for Sale SOLD! - Terry Brooks
The Black Unicorn - Terry Brooks
Wizard at Large - Terry Brooks
Tangle Box - Terry Brooks
Witches Brew - Terry Brooks
- Look at that - a different author! Terry Brooks writes fantasy books along the lines of Tolkien. I've read a few of his in the past that I enjoyed. These are kind of "entry level" fantasy. Like The Hobbit was before The Lord of the Rings trilogy for those familiar with that. I'm loving these books and can't wait to get to the next one on the series (The Princess of Landover). Which unfortunately is the last. So far anyway.
I've got several others waiting on my Kindle for me to dive into. And some pre-ordered. And a wish-list in my head.
Maybe I should add to my wish-list a book to make me independently wealthy so I can read instead of going to work.
