Currently Reading: The Color of Magic by Terry Pratchett
Read in March:
- One Day by David Nicholls -- 5 roses -- a wonderful love story told over a twenty year span revealed through snapshots of the same day—July 15th—of every year.
- The Accidental Bestseller by Wendy Wax -- 5 roses -- awesome story of four writing friends who decide to write a book together and the unintended consequences that threaten their friendship.
- The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver -- 4 roses -- a great story of a woefully unprepared missionary, his wife, and his four daughters in Africa.
- The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie by Alan Bradley -- 4 roses -- charming little mystery starring an 11-year-old chemistry-obsessed detective.
- Fool Moon by Jim Butcher -- 4 roses -- second book in the Dresden Files. In this one, Harry, wizard PI is up against a pack of werewolves, or two.
- Bloodfever by Karen Marie Moning -- 4 roses -- second book in Moning's Fever series. MacKayla continues to get stronger and learn about the Fae.
- I, Robot by Isaac Asimov -- 4 roses -- very enjoyable linked series of short stories based on the three laws of robotics. I'd like to see the movie someday.
- The Tales of Beedle the Bard by J. K. Rowling -- 4 roses -- a cute addition to the world of Harry Potter.
- My Reading Life by Pat Conroy -- 3 roses -- Interesting and written in Conroy's trademark smooth, Southern style.
- Murder at the ABA: A puzzle in four days and sixty scenes by Isaac Asimov -- 3 roses -- one of Asimov's few mysteries. I liked it, but I see why he's better known for his sci-fi.
- Sh*t My Dad Says by Justin Halpern -- 3 roses -- this short book was loaned to me by a friend. Very cute and often laugh-out-loud funny. Very, very fast read.
That's it for me. What about you? Read anything good lately?
