My birthday packages from Barnes and Noble and Amazon finally arrived! I now have a nice stack of books to read! I am still waiting for another package of three Neil Gaiman books. Joey, my husband, ordered it from the "official" bookstore in Minneapolis, but we haven't heard anything yet. I am eager for its arrival since one of them is signed!
Here's the roundup:
The Forest House by Marion Zimmer Bradley
The Fairy's Return and Other Princess Tales by Gail Carson Levine
Serenity Found: More Unauthorized Essays on Joss Whedon's Serenity edited by Jane Espenson
Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine
Book of a Thousand Days by Shannon Hale
Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk
Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson
Graceling by Kristin Cashore
Dark Whispers by Bruce Colville
I am now reading Graceling by Kristin Ganshore. I hope to put a review up for it. This is the author's first book, and so far so good! I flew through the first chapter last night.
I will write more this weekend since my writing goal must be reached at midnight on Saturday. I am hoping to reach 20,000 words in my novel KIN. I have about 5,000 words to go! Then I will reexamine my goals on March 1st. I am pleased with how everything is falling into place so far. Let's see if it keeps up!
