Book Number:47

Number Of Pages: 264

Book Title: Nightshade

Author: Shea Godfrey

Review: GRRRRRR. One character was all "I can't run away with you because my brother will hunt us down and kill us" and other character agreed and then all of a sudden it was "Oh yay, they've run away and I will end the story now. I will not resolve the conflict, I shall avoid it" Very anti-climactic.

That one was last nights book. I really have no life. *sighs*

 

I just finished:

 

Book Number: 49

Number Of Pages: 312

Book Title: When Rose Wakes

Author: Christopher Golden

Review: Very odd retelling of Sleeping Beauty. She was asleep for 1000 years, and fell asleep at the kiss of her husband, instead pricking her finger on a spindle. And she woke up in modern day Boston. Very good.

Book Title: Fragile Things: Short Fictions and Wonders

Author: Neil Gaiman

Rating: 4/5

Review: Some of the short stories I really loved and some of them were a bit odd. I need to read more of Gaiman's short stories, I think.

 

Oh, right. It's sort of a reread because I read half of it then put it down, then reread the whole thing.

Book Title: My Soul to Take

Author: Rachael Vincent

Rating: 5/5

Review: I thought the teaser novella I read was good... This book was fantastic, I am definitely pleased I persued the series. Creepy, scary, and funny, it was a good read. A stories of banshees who sing for depasrting human souls, and grim reapers who thieve innocent souls, it is really different. I didn't even mind the insepid teenage highschool drama, something I tend to avoid like the plauge. tongue.gif One question though, grim reepers who were humans now dead, taking souls for a day job? Did Racheal watch Dead Like Me? The consedences are huge.

Darn. I wish I'd known about this earlier. I read so many books this past couple of months, and was thinking of slowing down.

 

In any case, I'd like to join.

Book Title: Dingo

Author: Charles de Lint

Rating: 3/5

Review: I thought things happened entirely too fast, but then again, it was a very short book. I still thought it was cute, though.

I was a bit confused at first because there's a picture of a girl on the cover, but the story is from the first-person perspective of a guy... but he doesn't out and say he's a guy, you just have to put one and two together.

Oh, I want to join! Too bad books I read earlier don't count, I'm not reading as much now that I'm not at school. *sigh*

 

Question: Do audiobooks count? (I'm thinking not, but just checking.)

Answered (yes they do, but look up the actual page count on Amazon) -- thanks, Kanaye!
