Books this week

In the past week, I've read:

1) Shakespeare's Champion by Charlaine Harris

This is the woman who wrote the Sookie Stackhouse novels (aka True Blood). I'm a big fan of True Blood, but didn't really like the first novel it was based on, and also didn't want to spoil the tv series, so I stopped reading the books. But I have read this series (The Lily Bard Mysteries) and her other series (The Harper Connelly Mysteries). It takes place in the south (the town is called Shakespeare), the main character is a 31 year old white maid with a disturbing past, and there's always someone dying (and she's always getting mixed up in it). I feel like the writing in this series is MUCH better than the SS novel I read. However, I like the characters in the SS novels better.

I'm not a fan of the south. This book made me remember the reasons why. That said, it was still an engaging, fast read.

2) Shakespeare's Christmas by Charlaine Harris

Same as above...

3) The Carrie Diaries by Candace Bushnell

This is about Carrie from Sex & The City... but high school Carrie. Another engaging, fast read. Some of it annoyed the hell out of me, but I had to keep reminding myself that this was high school, and that makes it plausible. The ending made me a little giddy.

It feels so good to have time to read for fun again! :)

It does aye! I hardly read at all my last year of uni.

Making my way through the Bronze Horseman. OMG, it is keeping me up at nights! I think I'll finish it this afternoon.
