WWW Wednesday (August 31)

Hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading
Well, it's the last day in August, and here's my WWW Wednesday post. Enjoy! :)

To play along, just answer the following three (3) questions...

• What are you currently reading?
• What did you recently finish reading?
• What do you think you'll read next?

What are you currently reading?

I am reading "Touchstone" by Laurie R. King.
So far I'm liking it. It is a stand alone novel. I have read the first four books of the Mary Russell series by Laurie, and I love all of them and can't wait to read the next one. I found this book while borrowing the last Mary Russell book from my friends library. I thought it looked cool, so I checked it out at my public library.

What did you recently finish reading?
 I think the last book I finished was "Beastly" by Alex Flinn.
It was a good book. I liked it a lot. Here's my review on it.

What do you think you'll read next?
 I think I'll read "The Outlaws Of Sherwood" by Robin McKinley next.
This book is her version of the Robin Hood legend. I've only read a couple pages into it, but I can't wait to keep reading it!

Well, I hope you liked this weeks WWW Wednesday post. Until next time, and keep reading! : D

Musing Mondays (August 29)

Hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading
I don't usually do memes. The only one I keep up regularly is WWW Wednesday. I don't think I'm going to keep up with this one every Monday, but I couldn't help myself. This seems like it's gonna be a lot of fun. So here is my Musing Monday post!

This week’s musing is… a book meme!

 What was the last book you…
• borrowed from the library?
• bought?
• cried over?
• disliked and couldn’t finish?
• read & loved?
• got for review? (or: got in the mail?)
• gave to someone else?
• stayed up too late reading?

 Here's my answers:

What was the last book you...... borrowed from the library?

haha I got 8 books at my library. Do I name all eight, or just the one of them?
I'll just pick one out.   
I got "The Outlaws Of Sherwood" by Robin McKinley.
It's her version of the Robin Hood legend. I had read Jennifer Roberson's 
version called "Lady Of The Forest" and liked it a lot. So I decided to read another
author's version, and heard this one was pretty good.

 What was the last book you....bought?

The last book I bought was "The Dark Enquiry" by Deanna Raybourn.
 Actually, if you want to get technical.... I got the whole Lady Julia Grey series,
but this was the last one I got.  I love this entire series to death, and even got my parents to read them! and they liked them too. They are an amazing series. If you've followed this blog for any amount of time, you know that I love it because I'm always talking about it... If you would like you can check out the "sort of "review I did on this book, here.

 What was the last book you..... cried over?
That's a hard one! Cause I cry at a lot of books. I'm a big crier. I cry a lot. When it's happy, and when it's sad. I think that the last book I cired at was the same book up there ^^^ "The Dark Enquiry" by Deanna Raybourn. Now, the more that I think about it, I did cry at this book. It's got a really sad ending... : (

What was the last book you.... disliked and couldn't finish?
 This is a hard one too because when I get suggestions from people or I find a book, I make sure it's something I want to read. I look at the review's on Goodreads, make sure it isn't too bad and try it out.  I have a book I disliked but I finished it, because I tried to keep an open mind. It was "And Only To Deceive" by Tasha Alexander.  -sigh- I wanted to like it, but I just had a hard time. Here's my review on it.

 What was the last book you.... read and loved?

I really loved this book called "The Princess, the Crone, and the Dung Cart Knight" by 
Gerald Morris. I really like his books, and his style of writing. This book was funny, action packed, and cute all at the same time. I loved it!

What was the last book you..... got in the mail?
 Since I don't buy books for review, I'm gonna do the last one I got in the mail which is again, "The Dark Enquiry".  

What was the last book you.... gave someone else?
Do you mean gave someone as a gift, or gave someone to read and give back to you?
Well, I didn't give anyone any books, but I did let my Dad borrow a book from my bookshelf, if that counts? : P

What was the last book you..... stayed up too late reading?
Well that would have to be "Beastly" by Alex Flinn. I had to turn out my light, so I just used my book light to read with and stayed up much longer than I should have.... hehe
Here's my review on it.

So there's my answers! I hope you enjoyed this meme, and keep reading! :-)

It's time...........for an update blog!

I'd never thought I'd see the day when I felt bogged down by all the books on my TBR shelf.... I have exactly 96 books on my to read shelf on Goodreads. Wow. I have books crouding my shelf right now, AND on my bedside table.... It's scary. Here, I'll show you:

The TBR books on my bedside table....

Ya see what I mean? That's a LOT of books to read. On any other day, this would make me very happy. But for some reason, today I don't feel so happy about it. I'm sure it will change later but for now... I'm a little crowded. I have to read the library books first because they have to go back soon. haha You should see my library list! Here's the pic I took of it, so you can see what I'm talking about:

My library list.

It's an entire page full of books I want to get at my library...
Anyway, so far I've read three of my 8 books I got at the library. and I've done a review on two of them so far. Now, I have to decide which book I'm gonna read next.Which one do YOU want me to read? You can leave a comment if you would like.  The one I'm thinking about reading is "Touchstone" by Laurie R. King. It looks like it's gonna be a good book, but we'll see.
Ok.... what else do I update you on? I can't think of anything. Oh well. Until next time, and keep reading! : D

Book review: Beastly by Alex Flinn

Everyone has watched the Disney movie "Beauty and The Beast", at least once in their life. So we all know the story. I never realized how many versions there are of the story! So far I've read two. One was the book I did a review on a while ago, "Beauty: A retelling of Beauty and The Beast" by Robin McKinley. (You can read it here.) It was a really good book. Now, I just finished "Beastly" by Alex Flinn.
Here's what it says on the back of the book:

"I am a beast. A beast. Not quite wolf or bear, gorilla or dog, but a horrible new creature who walks upright – a creature with fangs and claws and hair springing from every pore. I am a monster.

You think I’m talking fairy tales? No way. The place is New York City. The time is now. It’s no deformity, no disease. And I’ll stay this way forever – ruined – unless I can break the spell.

Yes, the spell, the one the witch in my English class cast on me. Why did she turn me into a beast who hides by day and prowls by night? I’ll tell you. I’ll tell you how I used to be Kyle Kingsbury, the guy you wished you were, with money, perfect looks, and a perfect life. And then, I’ll tell you how I became perfectly beastly."

 Recently they did a movie for this book and I watched it first before I read this book.  It was a good movie, I thought. Then I checked out "Beastly" at my library and read it. Usually, I hate watching the movie before the book, but it wasn't bad this time. I still had the movie in my head but I could picture what he looked like without what he looked like in the movie in my head. In the movie, he wasn't a "beast". He just had scar like stuff on his face. In the book, he actually has fur, and looks like a "beast". Kinda like the Disney movie. Fangs and claws. Here, lets do a comparison:

The Beast from "Beauty and The Beast".
Kyle in the movie "Beastly".

See? I kinda imagine him looking like The Beast more, but not quite like him. If that makes any sense...?

ANYways back to what I thought about the book. I liked the book a lot. I wouldn't give it five star's cause I didn't love it.  But it was a good book nonetheless. I give it four stars! 
  In Robin McKinley's version, it wasn't in present day. In this book, it's in modern times. Kyle (or Adrian) goes to school and a Witch turns him into a beast because he's an inconsiderate jerk, who's rich and has everything. She gives him two years to find someone to love him, and him to love her back. His personality changes as he's this "beast", and he becomes a kind guy, who's not so much a jerk anymore. It's a cool plot line, and it gets more interesting as it goes along. I liked it. I thought it was enjoyable to read. I think my favorite character is Will, the blind guy who lives with Adrian and tutor's him.  It's a good book. I recommend it to anyone who likes retelling's of fairy tales, romance, and finding out that looks aren't always important. Overall, a great book.

WWW Wednesdays (August 24)

Hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading
It's Wednesday! So here's my WWW Wednesday post:

To play along, just answer the following three (3) questions...

• What are you currently reading?
• What did you recently finish reading?
• What do you think you'll read next?

 What are you currently reading?

I am currently reading "Beastly" by Alex Flinn.
I got a whole bunch of books at the library, 8 to be exact. And I've finished two of those 8 books. So this is the next one I'm going to read. I've only read a few pages so far, and I hope it will be good.

What did you recently finish reading?

I recently finished "A Poisoned Season" by Tasha Alexander.
It's was good, I liked it. I did a review on it with the first book, here.

What do you think you'll read next?

I think I'll read "The Hobbit" by J.R.R Tolkien next.
My friends say that this book is really good so I'm gonna take there word for it.
I have never read any of the "Lord Of The Rings" books, so this is my first time.
I can't wait!

So there's my post! I hoped you enjoyed. :-)

Book review: And Only to Deceive and A Poisoned Season by Tasha Alexander

Ok first I'll tell you the story of how I found this series.  I had ordered the newest Lady Julia Grey novel and I was going to check and see if it shipped out yet. It was, but Amazon gave me suggestions on books they thought I would like based on my recent purchases. I just clicked on a few and the newest book in the Lady Emily series came up called "A Crimson Warning". I read some of the reviews and found out that this was the latest book to a 6 book series. So I went on Goodreads and looked up the name of the first one. It's looked pretty cool, and it kinda sounded like it would be like Deanna Raybourn's Lady Julia Grey series. I checked to see if they had it at my library and they had all the other books except the first one. So I downloaded the eBook and read it.
 Now, here's what it says on the back of  "And Only To Deceive":

"For Emily, accepting the proposal of Philip, the Viscount Ashton, was an easy way to escape her overbearing mother, who was set on a grand society match. So when Emily's dashing husband died on safari soon after their wedding, she felt little grief. After all, she barely knew him. Now, nearly two years later, she discovers that Philip was a far different man from the one she had married so cavalierly. His journals reveal him to have been a gentleman scholar and antiquities collector who, to her surprise, was deeply in love with his wife. Emily becomes fascinated with this new image of her dead husband and she immerses herself in all things ancient and begins to study Greek. Emily's intellectual pursuits and her desire to learn more about Philip take her to the quiet corridors of the British Museum, one of her husband's favorite places. There, amid priceless ancient statues, she uncovers a dark, dangerous secret involving stolen artifacts from the Greco-Roman galleries. And to complicate matters, she's juggling two very prominent and wealthy suitors, one of whose intentions may go beyond the marrying kind. As she sets out to solve the crime, her search leads to more surprises about Philip and causes her to question the role in Victorian society to which she, as a woman, is relegated."

I give this book 3 stars and I'll tell you why.   At first this book was interesting, and I had hopes for this book. I wanted it to be as good as the Lady Julia Grey series but sadly it wasn't.  The plot was good, and the story is interesting, but there was one thing I didn't like, at all, about this book: Lady Emily. 
I did not like her. It was cool that she wanted to be independent and not rely on anyone but herself. I also liked that she didn't want to follow the rules of society. She basically wanted to be a rebel. That sums it up. Which is fine because everyone needs to be rebelish once in a while, but she took it too far. She didn't listen to ANYone. It got really annoying to put it lightly. She got really braty at times, and I just wanted to slap her. 
Now, she didn't really get to know her husband while he was alive so she tries to find out new things about him and get to know him better. She ends up falling in love with her dead husband! She gets to know more about him and then shes crying all the time about how she never got to love him as he deserved when he was alive. Basically feeling sorry for herself, and deweling too much on the past. You can't change it so stop crying over it! UGH. It made me mad. Then (haha I'm not even done yet) she meets her husbands best friend Colin Hargreaves, and he's nice to her and comforts her while she's grieving. Which is awesome. I love Colin. I think he's great, but it's just her that gets me! She spends time around Colin and she starts to like him, but all she does is lead him on. She makes him follow after her like a dog, she doesn't make any decisions regarding him. Ugh. The whole time she was accusing Colin of doing stuff that he obviously didn't do! And she has it in her head that HE'S the one doing everything! She just got on my nerves in this first book. I like everything else but her. 
 So you would think that she would be too annoying to go and read the second one, but I decided to give it a chance and read the second one and see if it would be better than the first. So I went to the library and got it. Today I finished it. 
Here's what it says on the back of "A Poisoned Season":

 "London's social season is in full swing, and Victorian aristocracy is atwitter over a certain gentleman who claims to be the direct descendant of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette. Adding to their fascination with all things French, an audacious cat burglar is systematically stealing valuable items that once belonged to the ill–fated queen.
But things take a dark turn. The owner of one of the pilfered treasures is found murdered after the theft is reported in the newspapers, and the mysterious thief develops a twisted obsession with Lady Emily Ashton. It takes all of Lady Emily's wit and perseverance to unmask her stalker and ferret out the murderer, while faced with a brewing scandal that threatens both her reputation and her romance with the dashing Colin Hargreaves.

 Now, I give this book 4 stars.  I thought this book was WAY better than the first one. In this one, she's over her dead husband and moving on with her life. She's fine until one of her friends, Mrs. Francis comes up to Emily and asks her to solve the mystery of  her husbands murder. So she agrees to help her. On top of that, someone keeps breaking in to Emily's house and sending her love notes and roses. She has a secret admirer. So, she tries to figure out who he is. All the while, still leading Colin on even though she loves him. -sigh- Just marry the poor guy! Other than that I liked this book a lot better. She wasn't as braty and she finally came to a decision regarding Colin. It's about time!
The plot was good, the mystery was good also, and it was exciting. One more thing I didn't like, was that it was a slow read. It dragged on for a while. I thought that the romance in it was cute. The only reason I'm gonna read the next one is because of her relationship with Colin. Colin is a cool guy. I want to see more of him. Overall, a pretty good book.

These books are good, but I wouldn't say there great. Once I finish with the series, I'm not gonna read it again. Normally I would recommend these to you but, I don't think I would. The second one is good. but the first one is not worth reading a second time. I wouldn't have a problem with it, if it wasn't for Emily. She kinda ruined the series for me, and I didn't want that to happen. I wanted to like her but, I couldn't. Even though I like her a bit more in the second book, I still didn't really like her. And I can't really name what it is...
Well, I hope the second book will be good, but I'm not sure. I really hope that it will change my mind about the series.

Books, books, and more books.

Well if you look at my Goodreads button you can see all the books I got from the library today... and there's a lot. 8 books in all. I'm sure everyone thought I was a freak... I had my arms full of books walking around with a purpose trying to find more books. haha -shakes head- I have a problem....

Anyways, I'll name off the books I got and show you the covers. Here's the list:
  • "A Poisoned Season" by Tasha Alexander
  • "Beastly" by Alex Flinn
  • "Touchstone" by Laurie R. King
  • "The Princess, The Crone, and the Dung-Cart Knight" by Gerald Morris
  • "The Birth Of Venus" by Sarah Dunant
  • "The Blue Sword" by Robin McKinley
  • "The Outlaws of Sherwood" also by Robin McKinley
  • "Hobbit" by J.R.R. Tolkien

 So there you have it. All of the books I got. and I have to read them in two weeks. Which isn't bad... I could do it by then. I've done it with 10 books before.
Anyways, I'm really excited to read them and maybe if I like them enough, I'll do a review on them.

Also if you noticed, I changed my blog up! I was kinda tired with the template I had so I have a new one now! I like it. I even put a little welcome message for those of you who are new. The only problem I'm having with it is that the little bar at the top it usually has is gone, and (I said this in the welcome message) you can get out of my blog by going to the top of the page and clicking "Log In" and it should take you back to your dashboard. If you found my blog, and you don't have a Blogger account, it will take you to

Ok I'm gonna go becuase I want to start reading my new books, so bye for now and keep reading! :)

P.S I didn't feel like showing the covers so you'll have to find them on your own. I'm pretty sure that these books will be good, so check them out!

WWW Wednesdays (August 17)

Hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading
This time I remembered that it was Wednesday so here's my WWW Wednesday post:

To play along, just answer the following three (3) questions...                         
• What are you currently reading?

• What did you recently finish reading?

• What do you think you'll read next?

  What are you currently reading?

I'm reading "The Heir To Sevenwaters" by Juliet Marillier.
I've already read this book before but I decided to read it again. I went to a store in my town called Friends Of The Library where they have a whole bunch of used books you can buy, and my Mom found this book in paperback. This is one of my favorite books of the Sevenwaters trilogy.

What did you recently finish reading?

Again, I have not finished any book yet. At first I was reading this one but then I started to read the other book and put this one down. So I have yet to finish it... but I'm almost done with it.

I've already read this book before but I'm trying to read all of Lynn Kurland's books in order so I'm rereading it. It's a good book!

What do you think you will read next?

I have no idea. I'm going to the library Friday so I have a big list of books I want to get. So it could be anything really. I don't know when I'm going to be able to borrow a Mary Russell book or Amelia Peabody book from my friends private library but I could get one before I go to the library. So at this point.... We'll just have to wait and see.

I hoped you enjoyed this WWW Wednesday post. Happy reading! : D

Updates, and my thoughts on "The Dark Enquiry" by Deanna Raybourn

I didn't want to do a whole review on "The Dark Enquiry" because I had already done a series review on the series. So I'm just gonna tell you what I thought about it, and give you some other updates too.  (You can read my series review here. In fact, I encourage you to. You'll understand the blog a whole lot better.)

Ok, so I thought that "The Dark Enquiry" was amazing! I'm not gonna go into the plot because it would give away spoilers and, as you know, I hate doing that. I had a lot of doubts because sometimes the more the author writes, the more they get bored with the series and it gets worse and worse. But as I started reading it, it grabbed my attention and I couldn't stop reading. I wanted to savor it and not read it all in one sitting, so I had to distract myself and do other activity's so that I didn't read it all. I ending up only prolonging it to two days.... but hey. It's better than nothing. At first it's kinda slow, but as it got more into the story it was hard to stop. The end is the best part. I was so surprised that I almost started crying.... I compare it to someone hiding in a corner trying to scare you, and you jump like three feet in the air and you scream. That's kinda what it felt like... It was so unexpected. You really didn't see it coming. I also like the fact that she makes you think that one person is the murderer, and then it's someone else you don't expect. The ending is sad too.... it almost made my cry. (Which is nothing new for me. Anyone that knows me well, knows I cry at everything. I always cry, not matter if I'm happy or sad or angry. Fun fact.) I like how Julia and Nicholas, eventually come together and settle their differences in this book. They are more of a team. I was getting sick of Julia trying to worm her way into Brisbane's work and him trying to stop her from doing so. In this book, they forget that and work together. It's about time.... I also like how we get to learn more about Brisbane's past, which is always exciting.  But just as I thought, she had a cliffhanger ending. Somehow I just knew it. I was very, very mad. and that's an understatement. I was ready to throw the book out the window.... I'm not joking.
Overall, I loved this book and cannot wait till the next one comes out. If you have never read this series before, you need to. It's one of the best series I've read in a long time. For more info here's Deanna Raybourn's site:

Ok so that's what I thought about the book, now here are some updates. I finally finished "The Mummy Case" by Elizabeth Peters. I thought it was a good book. I wouldn't say that the mystery aspect of it was all that great, but it was very funny. I was laughing with tears in my eyes at one point. She throws in a lot of humor in it that you don't expect. A pretty good read.

Now another update is that I also finished "The Gift Of Christmas Past" by Lynn Kurland. It's part of a book that has all of Lynn Kurland's short stories in it. That book was good as well. Next I'm going to read the next one in the de Piaget series, "One Enchanted Evening". I know, I know, I know. It sounds cheesy but like I always say.... It is a romance novel after all.

 What are you currently reading?
I am reading "The Dark Enquiry" by Deanna Raybourn.
I got this book in the mail yesterday, and couldn't put it down. I had to force myself to not read it so I didn't finish it in one day. haha A very hard feat for me... This book so far has been amazing. I can't wait till the next one comes out!

What did you recently finish reading?

Unfortunately I haven't finished any book yet because I have other books that get in the way so I haven't read any of them all the way through... The book that I'm about finished with is "The Mummy Case" by Elizabeth Peters.

What do you think you will read next?

I think I'll read "O Jerusalem" by Lauire R. King.
This is the fifth book in the Mary Russell series, and I'm excited to read it and see what other mysteries Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes come across. I've heard a lot of good reviews about this one, so lets hope it's as good as everybody says it is.

So there ya go! I'm liking this WWW Wednesday thing... It's kinda fun!  You should check out Should Be Reading, and maybe you'll like her reviews. : )

Book/series review: Silent in the Grave by Deanna Raybourn

Now, I've talked a lot about Deanna Raybourn and her books but I've never actually done a review on the books I like the most, which is the Lady Julia Grey series. I'm just letting you know now, two things. One: This blog is going to be pretty long. And two: This is not just a review on the first book of the Julia Grey series, it's on all of them. Also, I promise not to give away any spoilers. Because I hate when people give away spoilers. Especially on a book blog. So you don't have to worry. 

You know the drill if you've been reading my book blog for a while, but for those of you who are just reading this, I usually tell you what's on the back of the book so you get an idea of what the story is about, then I tell you my thoughts on it and I give it stars depending on how much I like the book or series. Ok here's what it says on the back of the book:

"These ominous words, slashed from the pages of a book of Psalms, are the last threat that the darling of London society, Sir Edward Grey, receives from his killer. Before he can show them to Nicholas Brisbane, the private inquiry agent he has retained for his protection, Sir Edward collapses and dies at his London home, in the presence of his wife, Julia, and a roomful of dinner guests.
Prepared to accept that Edward's death was due to a long-standing physical infirmity, Julia is outraged when Brisbane visits and suggests that Sir Edward has been murdered. It is a reaction she comes to regret when she discovers the damning paper for herself, and realizes the truth.

Determined to bring her husband's murderer to justice, Julia engages the enigmatic Brisbane to help her investigate Edward's demise. Dismissing his warnings that the investigation will be difficult, if not impossible, Julia presses forward, following a trail of clues that lead her to even more unpleasant truths, and ever closer to a killer who waits expectantly for her arrival."

I give this book 4 stars!

Now I loved this book! It was very, very good. BUT. I liked the second one better. A lot better. I would give the second book five stars. I would have to say that two and three are my favorites because it was a little more exciting, and I liked the secondary characters a lot more.
I like Julia because she speaks her mind, and isn't afraid to show that she is capable enough to handle the murderers she confronts. I think she is Brisbane's match in every way. Now..... Nicholas Brisbane. Let me just say right now that I love him. He is amazing. But that's just my opinion. I like him because he's mysterious, enigmatic, and intriguing all at the same time.
Now at first I kinda thought the Julia was weak and narrow-minded. She was at the beginning. But she slowly changes over time to become a whole different person. The mysteries they solve change her in ways she didn't think possible and she just keeps getting stronger as the series goes. I liked her a lot. I like how in the beginning of the book, you don't know much about Nicholas Brisbane. But as the series goes along, you learn more about him.  A lot more. And some of the stuff may surprise you.... ; ) I liked the mystery in this book. Raybourn really did keep you guessing who the murderer is throughout the whole thing. Plot line was good, as was the story line.

Now some bad things about this book (Be prepared.):  Julia and Nicholas' relationship takes a while to get going, and I found it kinda frustrating at times. You think some big revelation is going to come up, but it never does. At one point I almost threw the book across the room, but I didn't. Julia gets winy sometimes and it gets annoying. Some parts in the first book were awkward. Brisbane can be a little cold sometimes. And the ending. I really was mad about that.... At first, I didn't have the second book, so her "That's a tale for another time..." really pissed me off. But when I got the whole series in the mail, I read all of them and liked everyone of them. Then I got to the end of "The Dark Road to Darjeeling" and I was mad all over again. I couldn't get the next one cause I spent all my gift card on the first four books of the series. I got more money and got the fifth one and it's coming in the mail! : D  I bet she's going to have a cliff hanger ending to the fifth one too. Excuse my language but..... Damn it all.

This whole series of books is amazing. I've said it in other blogs that I love it. I did buy the whole series on Amazon after all. And I don't regret it. I will be reading these books for a long time to come. I highly recommend this series to anyone who likes mystery and romance. You know what this series reminds me of? The Mary Russell series. It's a lot like it.   Now go read this book/series! You won't regret it.

Update! :D

I've been having a busy, busy week so far. So I haven't really had time to blog but I'm doing it now! I got books from my friends home library that I think I told you about in one of my blogs last week, but just to say it again I got:

                                            "The Moor" by Laurie R. King

and:                              "The Mummy Case" by Elizabeth Peters

I've read "The Moor" already, and now I just need to finish "The Mummy Case" which I'm already enjoying. Let me just say, "The Moor" was amazing. I'm going to do a series review on the Mary Russell series later when I read all the books, so I'm not gonna go into detail about "The Moor" but it was a very, very good book. I liked it a lot, and can't wait to read the rest of the series.

I think I read a little too fast.... I read "The Moor" in two days. I'll tell you right now I don't skim read through my books. I read them, for real. Every word. Then why do I read them so fast??? I don't know. I guess if I really like the book, I read it faster. Hmmm....

I have about 6 books on my currently reading shelf, but I'm not I'm reading them all at the same time. I read a few pages, and if I'm not in the mood for it, I mark my place and read another. I have "The Count Of Monte Cristo" on the "CR" shelf, books one and two of the "Iron Fey" series, "The Hound of Baskervilles" and "A Study in Scarlet" by Arther Conan Doyle.  I just haven't got around to reading any of them because of the other books I keep getting.... I'll read them eventually.

Anyways, it's been a good week so far. I busy one, but good. I'll let you know how I liked "The Mummy Case" when I'm finished with it. I'm sure it's gonna be a good book as well.

Happy reading! <3
