Haven't read anything in the Known Space universe in some time. ;D

Beware the puppeteers and Beowolf
We've had our toad for the 2020s, it's got to get better from here!
But do beware the toad burps.

The Chrysalids, Wyndham.
The fist book by him which I'm tempted to put down - but I did make it half-way through already, so I probably will hang on, though not expecting much from it anymore.

Why waste time on it? Move on to a better one.

I'm about to start Midnight Man by Lisa Marie Rice, an erotic romantic suspense.

Decided to dig into a freebie I downloaded last week:
Spell Check, by Julie Wright

So far it's everything I expected from it, which is a great, funny YA novel about a girl that finds out by accident on her sixteenth birthday that she's got witch powers.
Completly love it.
Reminds me in the best sense of movies like "Teen Witch".
Really makes you long to be sweet sixteen again. :)

I almost downloaded that one. Ah well. So far Midnight Man is meh. I may put it down for something else.

Goblin Quest by Jim C. Hines.
It is interesting so far to see the world and humans through the eyes of a goblin.

Donna Alward, House on Blackberry Hill.
Giving it a second chance, because we all deserve one, right?
However, I still don't like the male love interest in this one, which is a crucial point in a Romance.
Ah well, I'm taking it to work with me and that way I have to read it - but if the character doesn't grown on me in the next couple days it likely goes back on the DNF pile.

Anne* of Green Gables (audio)

I'm past the point where I want to choke her to death, and even
think I like her. :P

Never read that, but seeing how searches on google turn up Megan Follows in the role I should probably give it a try - after all I would be predisposed to like the character. :D

City of Bones by Cassandra Clare. The library finally replaced their stolen copy. I've read the prequels. I'm finding her male characters very predictable.

Up next is probably The Winter King by C. L. Wilson.
There are many people – happy people, it usually appears – whose thoughts at Christmas always turn to books. The notion of a Christmas tree with no books under it is repugnant and unnatural to them. – Robertson Davies (1997)
