Anyway, I loved this novel. It's the first in a new series by Simon Green. Otherworldly beings, some very ancient, are working in England to destroy mankind. Only Melody, Happy, and JC can work together to stop the forces at work. It was a quick read; reminded me of Jim Butcher. I will certainly read the next in the series! A perfect book to read on a cool, dark Fall night, waiting for Ghost Adventures to start on The Travel Channel.
Looking over my list of read books, I'm amazed at what I've read. I usually read more non-fiction than what I have this year, so that was a surprise. Most of the books I've read have definitely been page turners, and even if I haven't reviewed them, I have enjoyed everything I've read. I never used to read reviews about books before I bought them; in my quest to spend my money more wisely, I have taken to reading reviews from other readers before I buy something I'm on the fence about. People have sent me in the right direction and I've appreciated their opinions.
So what's next? Well, continuing to read my "required" reading by next week. Also, looking forward to some really great new Teen titles coming out next month. Wolf Hall is looming; Oct 1st is my starting date. I'm determined to get through the whole book, and with a short reading time, I won't have time to dilly dally. I'm reading Time Enough for Love; it is tough going. I'm about 50 pages in and think I'm turning the corner and getting to the meat of the story. I've decided I have to read some fun stuff while reading the tough stuff, so I'm going to read a Sherilyn Kenyon novel--always have been curious why she's so darn popular. I have an ARC of the new Alice Hoffman novel out in January--The Red Garden. I'm trying to resist diving right in but it's hard!
So, off the computer and onto the couch. If I miss a bit of Ghost Adventures I can alway watch it again later. The books, however, are calling me back.
