Home!

I'm home now! :) Camping was absolutely wonderful! I got to chill with friends, enjoy sun (and some rain), eat good food, and read a good book.

Before we left for camping I had to go to the library to return some books and CD's that were due...and of course I ended up getting more books.

But first. I recently took back three of the books I had from the library because they either weren't super interesting, or other books were more pressing, or I realized I couldn't read every book on the planet, or all three. The books I will no longer be reading are: Academy 7, Avielle of Rhia, and The Princess and the Snowbird. I kept Finnikin of the Rock and The Season, which I hope to read soon.

The list I have from the library right now:
Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta
The Season by Sarah MacLean
Buckingham Palace Gardens by Anne Perry
Fablehaven by Brandon Mull
Dragon Slippers by Jessica Day George
The Sheen on the Silk by Anne Perry

I really hope I have a chance to read all of these before they're due back. Three more books are on their way so I'm going to be reading a LOT. Which is fine by me. :) (Since I wrote this I've read through The Season and Finnikin of the Rock. The Season was a bit cheesy and MacLean's writing wasn't spectacular. I think I'm going to take it back because unfortunately I have to pick and choose what I'm going to read. Finnikin of the Rock was written very well; I'll probably keep that one for a little longer and I'm hoping to actually read it soon. But don't expect me to read all of the books above - I have a long list! There are a few trilogies/single books I want to re-read, which will take a while as well.)

More reviews on the way, too...

Happy reading! :)
