What I've Been Reading and What's Up Next?

My poor blog has been silent, and I know that's no way to be when you're trying to develop content and build a decent following, but that's about to change since I'm now working less, and less can be more:  more time to read, more time to review, more time to blog, more time for art, dance, biking.  I could go on forever!

But anyway, here are a few books I've been reading:

Daughter of Smoke and Bone, by Laini Taylor  I couldn't believe my good fortune at getting an advanced readers copy.  Laini Taylor knows how to spin a tale.  Her imagination is a wondrous thing, and her writing skill is exceptional.   Did I love it?   Review forthcoming.

Chime by Franny Billingsly  *Creative goodness*

If I Stay by Gayle Forman  *Un-put-downable, heart-in-a-vise, tear jerker*

The Things They Carried by Tim O'Brien  *Greatness, heart-wrenching, a new classic, must read*

Song of the Sparrow by Lisa Ann Sandell  *Beautiful, lyrical*

Keeping Corner by Kashmira Seth  *Interesting*

Stay tuned for reviews!

What should I read next?  Help me out by clicking this form.  (This is my first experience with google documents, something I've been excited to try out)

Be well,


  1. I am not blogging at the moment, but hope to be doing so again soon. No worries about not posting much. Your blog is in my google reader. ;)

    I voted for Harry Potter because you really need to see the final movie sooner vs later. It is full of awesomeness!

  2. So happy to hear that you read Chime! I can't wait to read your review! I just got Daughter of Smoke and Bone last week and I can't wait to read it!! Also, I love If I Stay and Where She Went is just as amazing, if not more!

    I also voted for Harry. Plus book 3 is where the series starts getting amazing!

  3. The Things They Carried is a favorite of mine. It's one of the absolute best war books I've ever read.

    Haven't read Daughter of Smoke and Bone, but the title is breathtaking.


Thanks for the feedback. Be well, and happy reading!
