Wow, I haven't posted since January 2. That's two weeks...I am a sad excuse of a blogger. But I have been pretty busy lately so I guess I have a reason. :P

Anyway, I got quite a few things to update you on.

First, I finished "The Book of Fires" by Jane Borodale. It was a pretty good book! Kinda dark, and interesting. The writing style was different from what I'm used to but I didn't mind. This book has tons of things about it that I could spoil, so I'm not really gonna go into detail about it. What I can tell you is that it was really good, but don't expect it to be all butterflies and rainbows. There are some happy parts but it is pretty dark. Overall it was pretty good. :)

Second, I got some books from my library that I thought would work out great, but didn't. I tried reading "A Beautiful Blue Death" by Charles Finch but I couldn't get into it. Same with "Maisie Dobbs" by Jacqueline Winspear. I just could not get into it! Maybe they didn't have the action, or adventure I was looking for... or maybe I just didn't care enough about the characters. I didn't have time to figure it out because they were library books, so I had to take them back. Maybe one day, I'll try them again. It wasn't like they were bad books either, but I think I was looking for something and didn't find it in these books.

Third, I'm still reading "The Way Of Shadows" by Brent Weeks. I like it so far, but I haven't really read much of it. It's very much like "Name Of The Wind" except the styles of writing are different. This book is more fast paced, where "Name Of The Wind" is kinda slow. I haven't really read much but that's what I'm getting from this book so far. I have a few problems with the book, but maybe those will go away once I read it more.

Forth, I was talking about books with my Grandma, (she loves reading too) and I told her about Deanna Raybourn's, Lady Julia Grey mysteries. I told her she would like them a lot and what it basically is about. She finished it in a day and came back for the second one. hehe So she likes them, and I have another person in my family on the Lady Julia Grey bandwagon. :D But while we were talking about books, she told me I would like some of Susan Wiggs books. So when she came to get the second book she brought me two of them. The first one is "The Charm School" and the second one is "The Horsemasters Daughter". I read through "The Charm School" in two days and now I'm just about to finish The Horsemasters Daughter". I like them both a lot! Their like Lynn Kurland's books but more romantic.

Anyway, I think that's it for the updates! I'll try and do Musing Monday's tomorrow. Happy reading! <3
