Frost Bite and Shadow Kiss

One of the few plusses of the power being off for most of the business day is that I have plenty of time to read and write. So I finished reading Frost Bite. Great summer read. I enjoyed every minute. I've never seen the movie or the TV shows. I only saw one commercial for the TV show and it didn't seem anything like the books. So I ask you readers, do you like the TV show or the movie? Is it worth the time to watch it?

I've only read one page of Shadow Kiss so I'll have to write more about that later.

Frost Bite

It was nice to come back to Lucerne Valley and find more books waiting for me. I'm going to read book 2 of the Vampire Academy series: Frost Bite. I haven't started yet so I have nothing more to say about it, but at least it is on the list so I won't forget to keep track.

Thinking Woman's Guide

I'm currently reading The Thinking Woman's Guide to Real Magic by Emily Croy Barker. I mentioned it on Twitter, and I'll be darned if the author didn't follow me back. How cool is that? Great read. I'm going to be sad when it's over. I also love the cover illustration. Drat it all, I wish I could find my camera so I could show you.

Another Magical Novel

I took the book Blythwood down to Monrovia with me. Can't pack boxes all the day long. I got enough reading time to finish the book, and I enjoyed it a lot, though I think she could have come up with a better name for the bird boy than Raven. I returned it yesterday and forgot to take a photo of the cover. With all this moving and sorting I keep losing track of my camera.

I grabbed a new magical novel to read while I was at the library. I think it's going to be a fun read. It's called The Thinking Woman's Guide to Real Magic by Emily Croy Barker. It's 563 pages. I'm about four chapters into it. I don't have much planned for the day, so hopefully I can read for an hour or two. But right now I need to make breakfast.
