Cryer's Cross. It's some YA thriller about a girl (with OCD) whose friends keep disappearing.
Also, Hearts in Atlantis.
Also, Bird by Bird.

I've been listening to the Millenium trilogy at work. The Girl with the Dragon tattoo felt so discombobulated, but the Girl who Played with Fire got a bit more connected. I'll start on the Girl who Kicked the Hornets' Nest on monday.

Encyclopedia Brown. They make more sense now that I'm an adult. I can guess the answers before they tell me.

I'm rereading my favorite book of all time; The Hobbit.

I'm just up to the last part of the Mirkwood "arc".

I'm almost at the end of The Legend of Eli Monpress (the collection of the first three books in the series). It's basically about a glamorous thief who works with a swordsman and a demon. I've also just finished The Misanthrope's Guide to Life {Go Away!} which I found to be very entertaining. I'm also about to start Fifty Shades of Grey since my parents keep raving about it.

City of Ashes. It's pretty good I guess, but the series still hasn't hooked me so far. D:

I'm reading Cold Fire, second in the Spiritwalker trilogy by Kate Elliott. It's a pretty enjoyable series so far.

I just bought a bunch of books for my tiny son, including Jon Klassen's I Want My Hat Back, which is probably the most hilarious children's book I've ever read.

I personally like the No, David! Books... They are fantastic. The only thing I like more the the books is how he came up with the first story.

The Fire Ascending - Chris D'Lacey.

My Sherlen was obsessed with them, so I tried to read them all before she finished the latest book, which was Dark Fire at the time.

Basically, four books in four days, and I finished them all before Friday, when I got Dark Fire and spent my time reading it.
