Really behind

I've been really lack lately in keeping my reading list updated. In my defense, my computer decided to have another motherboard error, and I had to send it back to Sony. My husband and I also bought a new house in Sept, and I'm still trying to make it through my degree -- albeit, VERY slowly :P Anyways, here are the last few books I can remember reading (there are more, but I can't remember :( ):

55. Knights of the Blood - Scott MacMillan (350)
56. The Bar Code Tattoo - Suzanne Weyn (250)
57. Moonshine - Rob Thurman
58. Madhouse - Rob Thurman
59. Deathwish - Rob Thurman
60. Poltergeist - Kat Richardson
61. Underground - Kat Richardson
62. Wolfbreed
63. Shutter Island
64. Living with the Dead
65. Tunnels - Michelle Gagnon
66. Boneyard - Michelle Gagnon
67. Hunting Ground
68. Tempest Rising - Nicole Peeler
69. Dark Time: Mortal Path book 1: Dakota Banks

Tempest Rising
I picked this book up on a whim. The cover looks like something for a manga! If you've seen it, you know what I mean. I also found out that it is authored by an English professor (ah, kindred spirits ^_~). On the whole, the book was cute. Some of the sex scenes are a little over the top for me -- hence why I stopped reading the Anita Blake series . . . That and the fact that a porno has better dialogue :P. There are parts of this book that are rather esoteric, and are hilariously wicked if you understand them -- and English major thing ^_~ All in all, this book was a fast and fun read. Don't expect an earth-shattering plot.

Dark Time
I've been wanting to read this book since it came out. I finally got my hands on when I had some cash burning a hole in my pocket. The beginning of this book is very engaging. In some ways, I felt that the narrative went down hill once Banks brought Susannah into present day. She was able to pull it back and make it a little more engaging. She used flash backs to show Susannah's (Now Maliah) past and how she ended up with her rag-tag group.

While this book was extremely entertaining, I found some aspects of it a little over the top. Granted she would have acquired a massive amount of money over her life, but she throws money around like candy. It seemed a little bit unrealistic to me. Also, her adventure in the plane was a little hoakie. Either way, it was still fun and engaging :)

Currently: White Witch, Black Curse by Kim Harrison (FINALLY in paperback!!)
