Top Ten Books I’ve Read in the Last 3 Years

Around the Internet

Is Our Concept of “Well-Read” Elitist? – This drives me crazy. The husband gets on his high horse about this sometimes. He thinks I’m not “well-read” because I don’t read what he considers to be classics.

Douglas Adams made me a writer – Neil Gaiman, Douglas Adams, and Terry Pratchett in one article!

Reading This Week

I’m about halfway through a bunch of books.  These ones are new this week.

The Shadow of the Wind (The Cemetery of Forgotten Books,  #1)The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafón

I’m reading this one for the Travel the World in Books read a long.

“Barcelona, 1945: A city slowly heals in the aftermath of the Spanish Civil War, and Daniel, an antiquarian book dealer’s son who mourns the loss of his mother, finds solace in a mysterious book entitled The Shadow of the Wind, by one Julián Carax. But when he sets out to find the author’s other works, he makes a shocking discovery: someone has been systematically destroying every copy of every book Carax has written. In fact, Daniel may have the last of Carax’s books in existence. Soon Daniel’s seemingly innocent quest opens a door into one of Barcelona’s darkest secrets–an epic story of murder, madness, and doomed love.” from Goodreads

Fair Game (Alpha & Omega, #3)Fair Game by Patricia Briggs

I’m listening to this on audio.

“Now that the werewolves have revealed themselves to humans, they can’t afford any bad publicity. Infractions that could have been overlooked in the past must now be punished, and the strain of doing his father’s dirty work is taking a toll on Charles.

Nevertheless, Charles and Anna are sent to Boston, when the FBI requests the pack’s help on a local serial killer case.” from Goodreads
