This is mostly just to catch up on the few books I got in December (and failed to post about) along with a few we got from a friend since she was moving out of the state.
- Witch & Wizard by James Patterson (Witch & Wizard #1)
- The Gift by James Patterson (Witch & Wizard #2)
- The Fire by James Patterson (Witch & Wizard #3)
- The Kiss by James Patterson (Witch & Wizard #4)
- The Lost by James Patterson (Witch & Wizard #5)
- The Revenge of the Shadow King by Derek Benz & J. S. Lewis (Grey Griffins #1)
- Seventh Son by Joseph Delaney (Last Apprentice #1-2)
These were all books from the friend I mentioned already. There were a couple of others but we either already had them or they didn’t sound good. Any thoughts on these?
- Prodigy by Marie Lu (Legend #2)
- World War Z by Max Brooks
- The Battle for Skandia by John Flanagan (Ranger’s Apprentice #4)
- The Escape by K. A. Applegate (Animorphs #15)
I got these during the latter half of December. I absolutely loved the first book of Ms. Lu’s Legend Trilogy so the sequel was a no-brainer. Likewise The Battle for Skandia and The Escape help me fill out those series. But World War Z was kind of an impulse buy. I generally don’t like zombie-anything but I thought the movie had an interesting feel so I’m willing to give the book a shot.
As for new books, I finally got Lisa to try Adventures Wanted and she finished all 5 books this past week and subsequently bought the eBook versions when she encountered the same problems I did with the library. So my evil plan has worked perfectly….I totally meant for this all to happen.
I’ve also decided to just bite-the-bullet and buy Animorphs #8 since it’s the only one I’m missing until #21. That will give me a few months.
Lastly, I’ve sort of accepted two review requests, Iron of the Innocent: The Dark Judge by Daniel Bastion and The Tabernacle of Legion by Kevin Schillo. I hope to get to these this month or the beginning of next.
