Chocolatespoon: Emily’s Musings

Books

Posted on: December 26, 2007

Ok, I haven’t blogged any books I’ve read for AGES and AGES (not really since last February, except for the Harry Potter and Jasper Fforde entries). I have managed to add most of the books I’ve read to my list on Facebook at least, so I’m going to try to dump them here so at least my lists are a bit more up to date and then try to get back into the swing of blogging them as I go in the new year (I haven’t been reading very much since the baby of course, sigh, but there are certainly a pile to report on for the year, even if this is incomplete)

Here they are in roughly backward order (most recent first)
  • A Clue for the Puzzle Lady by Parnell Hall – in preparation of Puzzle Day, of course
  • The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
  • Into the Mist by Patrick Carman
  • Kiki Strike The Empress’s Tomb by Kirsten Miller — I love Kiki and her gang of ex-girl scout adventurers!
  • Alcatraz Versus the Evil Librarians by Brandon Sanderson — really fun
  • The Dressmaker by Elizabeth Birkelund Oberbeck — Lisa sent this one to Mom — it was wonderful!
  • Where’s My Jetpack? A Guide to the Amazing Science Fiction Future that Never Arrived by Daniel H Wilson (on CD)
  • Theodosia and the Serpents of Chaos by R. L. Lafevers
  • Gregor and the Code of Claw by Suzanne Collins — love the Gregor series!
  • The Coroner’s Lunch, Disco for the Departed, and Thirty-three Teeth by Colin Cotterill — Katy got me started on this great mystery series
  • The Deception of the Emerald Ring and The Masque of the Black Tulip by Lauren Willig — this is SUCH a fun series
  • The Good Husband of Zebra Drive by Alexander McCall Smith (on CD — note to self, DO NOT listen to these on CD, they are only good read)
  • Buy, Buy Baby How Consumer Culture Manipulates Parents and Harms Young Minds by Susan Gregory Thomas
  • Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman 24 Stories by Haruki Murakami -for bookclub
  • Guarding the Moon A Mother’s First Year by Francesca Lia Block – Mom sent this — FLB is one of my favorite writers of all time, and this one is about her new baby!
  • Charlie Bone and the Beast — love the whole CB series
  • The Circle by Peter Lovesey
  • How to Ruin a Summer Vacation by Simone Elkeles – YA book set in Israel
  • In Your Dreams by Tom Holt — he was recommended to me and I just really loved this series
  • Dragondrums by Anne McCaffrey (on CD)
  • Gregor and the Marks of Secret by Suzanne Collins
  • The Portable Door by Tom Holt
  • Artemis Fowl The Lost Colony by Eoin Colfer
  • The Penguin Who Knew Too Much A Meg Langslow Mystery by Donna Andrews — I just love Meg
  • The Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Lee Stewart
  • Eclipse by Stephenie Meyer – super awesome, of course, like the whole series
  • The Road by Cormac McCarthy (for bookclub)
  • An Abundance of Katherines by John Green (on CD)
  • Stardust by Neil Gaiman (on CD)
  • The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon — really fantastic
  • The Alchemyst The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel by Michael Scott
and probably others I’ve forgotten, but its a start…
