Books 21 - 30

Much catching up to do. I'll break it over multiple posts to as not to have it one long list. :)

21. Ten Big Ones - Janet Evanovich
22. Eleven on Top - Janet Evanovich
23. Lean Mean Thirteen - Janet Evanovich
24. Plum Lucky - Janet Evanovich
Fun to read, quick, light on crime, heavier on the drama.

25. Trading Up - Candace Bushnell
Decent chick lit

26. Blinded - Stephen White
Average crime drama

27. Crown Duel - Sherwood Smith
I loved this, even if I did want to give Mel a shake now and then. :)

28. Scarlett Slept Here: A Book Lover's Guide to the South - Joy Dickinson
Yeah, travel book. Obviously tying what you've read with where to go. It's pretty average, as travel books go.

29. Cat in a Hot Pink Pursuit - Carole Nelson Douglas
Mystery and cats. Not bad.

30. Random Acts of Badness - Danny Bonaduce
Autobiography. Like watching a trainwreck on the page.

Books 31 - 40

31. Movie Mavericks: Trivia from the Filmmaking Fringes - Jon Sandys
Fun to play with at work when things are slow. Some of us know the most obscure things about the movies on our shelves. :)

32. Are You Really Going to Eat That?: Reflections of a Culinary Thrill Seeker - Robb Walsh
Lots of good food writing, a few recipes included.

33. Thunderstruck - Erik Larson
Love this man's writing. Combines the story of Dr. Crippen with Marconi's story.

34. Heir Apparent - Vivian Vande Velde
Stuck in a video game and trying to stay alive until they can get her out.

35. A Great and Terrible Beauty - Libba Bray
Magic, suspense, girls with power!

36. The Watsons go to Birmingham - 1963 - Christopher Paul Curtis
Well told story about growing up in the '60s.

37. The Dead Girls' Dance - Rachel Caine
Book Two of the Morganville Vampires series. Love these books!

38. Specials - Scott Westerfeld
Read this so I could finish the series. While I like the first book, this last one just didn't do it for me.

39. Best Friends - Martha Moody
Chick lit, follows two friends through their meeting in college and on into later life. It was okay.

40. The Academy Awards: The Complete Unofficial History - Jim Piazza and Gail Kinn
Seems pretty complete to me. Well, aside from stopping in 2005, right before it was published. Lots of little lesser known tidbits. I know there's a spot somewhere in the book where I corrected something, but darned if I can find it now. :)
