So Many Books. So Little Time. Let's Review!

What Are You Reading Today?

  bearreading

It’s that time again. Inquiring minds wanna know what you are reading today!  Please take a minute to share.

I finally decided to find out for myself who this Terry Pratchett guy is, and why I keep seeing him quoted all over the place, even by Jim Butcher, the author of my very favorite Urban Fantasy series of all time, The Dresden Files.  I somehow started with The Wee Free Men, which is actually Book #30 (yes, THIRTY!) of a 39 (SO FAR) book series!  But I think I’m okay, as it reads like a stand alone book. I’m nearly three-quarters done with it.  I can’t wait to review this book, and to get my hands on more of Pratchett’s Young Adult Fantasy works. The Wee Free Men is FUNNY.  That’s funny, with a capital F. U. N. N. and Y.   More will be forthcoming in a day or so.

Next, I’ll be starting the long awaited Ever After, the new Rachel Morgan book by Kim Harrison. I’m being very calm and collected about having Ever After in my hot, little hands, but on the inside, I want to SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE like a FanGirl!  I will be reviewing it shortly, as well.

What’s in YOUR hot, little hands?  Are you loving it? Hating it? Feeling all “Meh” about it?  Tell!

  1. I have never ventured into the genre of books you read, but with all your excitement, I should probably give it a try some day! I’m laboring through Song of Achilles right now. It was also a stretch for me. I’ll finish it, but …. bleh.

    • Aha. *me, putting question mark by Song of Achilles now* Believe it or not, I do read many other genres. Just about everything, if it’s well written and makes me love the characters. It’s only been in recent years that I’ve been able to indulge my lifelong guilty pleasure of tales from the dark side. However, some Urban Fantasy is very funny, in addition to the action. You might be pleasantly surprised. Let me think of a book that could pull you in. I’ll get back to you.

      Meantime, I’ve got a few NON UF books in my To Be Read pile that I want to get to, as well. Plus, of course I read the hilarious Stephanie Plum books and the riveting Jack Reacher books, too. Sue Grafton’s alphabet mysteries, and Marisa de los Santos lyrical love stories, as well. Totally non-magical in any way. But after years of reading all the great literature I could find and then the more contemporary classics, I was ready for the current SuperNatural bonanza.

      Thanks for commenting. I was just looking at your GoodReads widget the other day and making note of a few titles I wanted to explore. I love hearing what my friends are reading, even if they are friends I haven’t met yet.

    • Hi, Marney! Thanks for commenting. I always make note of what everyone is reading, so I’m jotting this down, of course. Hmmm…another British author writing about Americans. I hope it’s a positive spin, and I hope you enjoy the book. Stop back by when you can and let us know.

  3. Just getting into the latest Chet & Bernie mystery: “A Fistful of Collars”, and really enjoying the audiobook of Tim Powers’ “Last Call”

    • Chet & Bernie? I need to know about these guys! I’m going googling shortly. I like mysteries and puns. Sounds like it could be right up my alley…when my alley isn’t full of vampires and werewolves, that is.

      Thanks for stopping by, Steve. Always good to see you!

      • Hi Marcia — you’ve probably found it by now, but the first one (the one I’m reading is the 5th) is “Dog On It” (http://stevebetz.wordpress.com/2009/07/17/because-animals-can-often-be-better-people-than-people/). They’re really light mysteries, but very fun if you’re a dog-person. 🙂

        • Hi, Steve! I did google the series yesterday, and have added Dog On It to my list. I do like light mysteries and quick reads in between my bigger books, and I’ve always enjoyed stories told from the perspective of an animal, when they are done well. Some writers have a knack for it, and some don’t. But for me, it’s always interesting to see a POV that lets us examine ourselves from a different perspective, whether it’s an animal, a child, an alien…whatever. I love to see someone, or some THING, trying to figure humans out. (Something I have failed to do in the last 69 years, btw.) I’m glad you posted about this one. I’m definitely giving it a try. There are some cat mysteries out there I’ve been wanting to check out, too, being an equal opportunity pet person. (We have four cats and two dogs.)

          Thanks for the link to your post, as well. Gonna check that out shortly. Have a great day!

          🙂
