Last night I finished devouring Revenge of the Spellmans the latest Spellman installment by Lisa Lutz. I think it’s safe to say I completely utterly adored it. I have some pretty incredible series in my rotation right now and this one is no different. It’s described as Harriet the Spy meets Stephanie Plum meets Dirty Harry. All I can say is it’s awesome. Terrific writing, intriguing plots, lovable characters. There is one small completely unsatisfying kiss in this book (if you follow the series, you will know who I’m talking about) that actually brought tears to my eyes and that’s all I will say about that. Loved it.
I’m still needling my way through Walk Away the Pounds by Leslie Sansone. I am enjoying it (you know the tiny bit I’ve read) but I’m terrible at reading nonfiction and haven’t made the least bit of progress with it. Ho hum. The best I can say for myself here is that I’m doing better with her DVDs than her book – that’s something, right? And again it’s no reflection on the book – I’ve thoroughly enjoyed every page I’ve read. I’m just strange.
So the books slated to be read next area:
- Lioness Rampant by Tamora Pierce
- Inkheart by Cornelia Funke
- House of Dark Shadows by Robert Liparulo
- The Perilous Journey by Trenton Lee Stewart (sequel to Mysterious Benedict Society)
- The Host by Stephenie Meyer
And two others on their way from Amazon…
