Books and More Books

So I got a ton of books in the mail yesterday

Firelight - which I read in a few hours. It's a fast read. Short sentences, present tense. Loved the draki (dragon) story. I'd actually love the book if I'd actually liked the main character. 

Iron King- Half way through it. I love Julie Kagawa's writing. She has the young adult voice so well and Meg is hilarious-- vulnerable and yet strong. I'm still not big on the whole faery thing

And I still have these two to read (Iron Daughter and Wish). Plus a couple of new releases for January and Feb that have been trickling in.

What are you reading?

Also, Disgruntled Bear is holding a pitch contest over HERE. She's taking the first 20. You better hurry up, mofos.


  1. At the moment, I'm concentrating on academic textbooks... more's the pity!

    Firelight sounds interesting.

  2. I loved Jacinda.

    I just finished the Iron Daughter and Queen so amazing.

  3. Cari - I am little scared by what I read about Iron Queen. I hear its a tear jerker.

    And just couldn't connect with Jacinda and her thigh squeezing habits. lol

    William - textbooks ... glad I am so done with that

  4. Iron Queen: Try cry your eyes out for a long time after you finish the book. My heart still hurts but it's so good.

  5. This comment has been removed by the author.

  6. That is scaring me. And I'm confused by the fourth book. Is it a sequel on just Ash telling his side of the story?

    I think i have a feeling how it will end (Iron Queen). I just may stop on the 2nd one.

  7. See I'm confused about the fourth book also. Is it like when Angel left Buffy and went to start a new life. If so I'll be so mad but if it fixes things which I hope it does then great. Still hurt!

  8. Cari - I actually canceled my pre-order for Iron Queen. I read the reviews and even though they didn't give away anything except that its heartbreaking. So I canceled pre-order and will wait and see what Iron Knight is actually about.
