Melena's fucking Turtle Heart. Elphaba just said her first word.

I dunno, there's just too much BS in it. And can it drag the story any longer!??! Sheesh...

Your Heart Belongs To Me by Dean Koontz. I dunno, he's spending too much time talking about this dude's heart problem when I'm like... I don't know, I just don't care. It should build to something good (I hope it does).

I blazed through this book called Monster by A. Lee Martinez. It was pretty good. Fun. Clever. Easy read. Fantastic idea. Well crafted.

Amazon says: Monster runs a pest control agency. He's overworked and has domestic troubles - like having the girlfriend from hell.

Judy works the night shift at the local Food Plus Mart. Not the most glamorous life, but Judy is happy. No one bothers her and if she has to spell things out for the night-manager every now and again, so be it.

But when Judy finds a Yeti in the freezer aisle eating all the Rocky Road, her life collides with Monster's in a rather alarming fashion. Because Monster doesn't catch raccoons; he catches the things that go bump in the night. Things like ogres, trolls, and dragons.

Oh, and his girlfriend from Hell? She actually is from Hell.
---------

-HECK!

The blurb doesn't do it justice. It's plenty better. I dug it.

Has to do with magic and stuff, but in a fun kind of tongue-in-cheek way.

The main guy changes color each day and has a special power to go with it. His assistant is a paper man powered by a being from another universe.

His girlfriend is a nympho from hell.

-HECK!

Bought The Traveler by John Twelve Hawkes. Read a few things about it online. The third part of the trilogy just came out, so I bought the first in the series.

Wiki says plenty about the book, but to sum it up: "The book is about an alternative contemporary reality, laced with magic and fantasy, one in which the U.S. is part of a society overseen by a secret organization..."

-HECK!

I have decided that I shall re-read, for the first time I have ever re-read it and around a decade after I read it the first time, the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

I'm still chugging along with A Dance with Dragons, but mostly I've started reading the Sookie Stackhouse books and only read George R. R. Martin's novel when I'm between Stackhouse books.

I've only read Dead Until Dark. I didn't love it but it was miles ahead of Twilight.

I have the next 3 books but no immediate plans to continue with the series.

They're fun and an easy read. I feel kind of embarrassed to tell people that I'm reading them, though.

Not as much as if someone discovered that I had the whole Twilight series on my bookshelf (I don't).

I'm reading The Husband's Secret for my book club. It's written from the point of view of three different women, which makes it more difficult to get in the flow of reading for the first few chapters, but I'm half-way through it now and it's interesting. Definitely a good book club book. I'm not sure I'd read it on my own, but it will be fun to discuss it.
