Welcome to the madness lad! Read slowly, I'm guessing there's about four years to wait for the next book!

I've finished my library book marathon just in time for the due date! I didn't complete all the books. Here are the ones that I read cover to cover:

Room by Emma Donaghue- A. MAZEBALLS.

Book of a Thousand Days by Shannon Hale- Just lovely.

The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver- Absolutely loved every moment of it. It broke my heart for the most part.

The rest of them were given a fair shot, but they just didn't pull me in, so they will have to go back on the shelf and wait for someone else to be captivated by them.

Now to figure out my next library plunder...

"Is that Ms Ephemera hovering over the croquet lawn?"�
"Indeed m'lud. She's marshalled all the haggle-dans. Missy-twigs and vale-nymphs from Claypole Woods. Apparently she intends to tear this house down and dance on the ruins."�
"Well, Chives, you'd better start the car, what? And pack my tennis things too"�

I just finished "The Map of Time" by Felix J Palma. I enjoyed it so much I had to hop on here and share. It is just your bacis time travel novel set in Victorian London, but I thought it was very well writen.

The Name of The Wind.

It's every bit as good as everyone say's, I must admit it's been a *long* time since I was reading a book and haven't wanted to put it down.

I prefer to live in a country that's small, and old, and where no one would ever have the NERVE to wear a cape in public, whether they could leap tall buildings in a single bound or not.

And I am also now reading George R.R. Martin's A Clash of Kings. Let the Song of Ice and Fire addiction continue.

Welcome to the fold, Mythos! Big Grin

I just finished the second book in the Skulduggery Pleasant series, Playing With Fire (loved it, will have to buy the next one real soon).
Now I'm reading "Delusions of Grandma" by Carrie Fisher (yes, the very one) and trying to decide whether I should get it for my Mom for Christmas.

I just finished reading A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini. I hadn't actually read or seen The Kite Runner & only read this one because it was given to me as a present, but on the whole I thought it was okay. I'm not quite sure how good he is at writing young girls, but it definitely taught me a lot about recent Afghan history.

Same here. I have heard that is the better one of the two. I did see that kite runner is now out in a graphic novel.
