    I love those books!

    Halfway through Once Upon a Summer Day a retelling of Sleeping Beauty

    Also halfway through The Inheritance by Tamera Alexander- not sure how I feel about it yet.

    Just finished The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd. Good, good book.

    I've just started Invisible Monsters by Chuck Palahniuk.

    To live would be an awfully big adventure.

    Finished Harry Potter 1
    Onto Harry Potter 2!
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Finished Once Upon a Summer Day - meh. There are better retellings.

    Partway through The Frog Prince- it has potential

    Half way done with "Princess Of The Midnight Ball" by Jessica Day George. For a sci-fi/fantasy YA book, it's actually pretty good, better than I thought.

    Re: What book are you reading? (or just finished)

    3/4ths the way through Pretties. I liked Uglies. I'm trying to figure out what I'm going to read while I'm in California. Last time I went I read 2 books in 3 days while attending wedding activities, I'm there for 9 days this next trip so I think either 2-3 really long books or some light paperbacks.

    Reading The Choice by Nicolas Sparks. This is like book 5 this week.

    Re: What book are you reading? (or just finished)

    I just finished Specials within the last hour or so (fast reader once I'm into a series). I liked it. I was sad about one character, yay for another, I wondered about Shay the whole time. And I had a feeling the Specials were always not right. Does Extras deal with the same characters? I started to read the sample inside and got the impression it dealt with a totally new set, which I'd be bummed about.

    Yes but there's an appearance by Tally and David.

    Finished The Inheritance- not my favorite. I'm going to be giving up reading for a week to finish a 150+ page paper. I've written 85 pages thus far.

    150+ page paper?? I feel for you. I could never do that.

    I'm about halfway through Floating Dragon by Peter Straub. It's extremely well written, and pretty darn creepy.

    Finally Finished the Dark Tower series. Took me almost 6 months and I'm utterly exhausted. I'm going to take a few days off from reading.

    Re: What book are you reading? (or just finished)

    I'm three chapters into The Magician's Nephew by C.S. Lewis. It is the first book by him that I have read, and I must say that I like his narrative style.
    Oo-de-lally!
