Book Journey. It is where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week.
Time for a quick update on my reading. I'm still not reading as much as I would like, but here's what I've finished in the past few weeks:
– Down and Dirty by Christine Bell, second in the Dare Me series. This romance novella was a quick read, and even though I'm not really into this genre, I have to admit that Christine's books are hot, hot, hot.
– The Thief Lord by Cornelia Funke. I loved this children's book about a group of children living in an old abandoned cinema in Venice and their leader, a boy who calls himself the Thief Lord.
– Hammered by Kevin Hearne, third in the Iron Druid Chronicles. This urban fantasy series is a lot of fun, chock-full of mythical creatures in a modern day setting. This installment focuses on the Norse mythology, which I've been very interested in since I was a kid.
– The Bleiberg Project by David Khara (review coming soon!). Solid thriller by a French author.
The Orphanage of Miracles by Amy Neftzger. I'm only one chapter in but so far it's very interesting and I can't wait to see what will happen. It's been described as middle grade fantasy, but I think it will appeal to older readers as well.
I'm going on holiday next week and will have plenty of time to read, so hopefully I'll be able to get through a couple of books. I don't have any particular titles lined up, but I'm taking Pickwick (my Kindle) so I'll have plenty to choose from. :)
