So I checked out a few books from the library since the last time we spoke…

Here’s the list:

It looks like a bit of Bret Easton Ellis overload, eh? Yeah, I don’t know what that’s about. It started with me reading his newest (and it was the FIRST one of his I’d ever read) book, Imperial Bedrooms, and went from there. I love my local library.

Here’s what I’m currently reading:

And I got this to review:::

What are you reading/what did you get?
I’m hoping to get some ARCS to read in a traveling ARC tour, so keep your fingers crossed for me, if you can. Thanks!

5 Question Friday

Questions for Friday, June 18th (click on the icon above to be taken to OP):
1. What is your favorite thing about summertime? Reading! I love to read and have a lot of time to write in the summer.

2. What is your ideal retirement location (if money didn’t matter)? Dunno, but a lot of my friends and family would be there.

3. Do you live in the same town you grew up in? No, I lived in California for 6 or 7 years, then moved to Ohio. I lived in the small town my mom was born in until I graduated from college and have been moving every couple of years since (in North Eastern Ohio). I am moving back to California for a year at the end of this month.

4. What nervous habit did you have as a child that you kicked to the curb before becoming an adult? I still bite my nails and I still worry. I’m less apt to make myself sick a LOT, but I still sort of do. Eeep! Working on the nail thing.

5. What is the most embarrassing thing that happened to you while on the job? Um, maybe when they took pictures of me in my Batgirl costume?

Hey there!
Wednesday is the day where I talk about some of the books I’m interested in reading–the wishlist books that I’ll probably check out at some point. These are all the fiction books that I’ve pencilled on my ‘wishlist’ right now.

Sizzling Sixteen by Janet Evanovich
I’ve read every Stephanie Plum book since 9th grade, when I snagged ‘One for the Money’ from my local library. Let me just say I’m a Morelli fan and I like to read these if only for the laughs. They’re quick reads, and just pure brain candy.

The Lonely Polygamist by Brady Udall
This is out now, but it’s a topic that I still want to read about. There’s a lot of things coming out about Polygamy, and this would be the second fiction novel I’ve heard about (the first being ‘the 19th Wife’, which was good).

Star Island by Carl Hiaasen
I’ve read Mr. Hiaasen since I was 13, and I love his style, I love the way he makes me laugh and I love the scenes he paints. This one sounds like a winner.

Naked Heat by Richard Castle
This is the sequel to ‘Heat Wave’ which was written by the fictional character Nathan Fillion plays on the hit tv show ‘Castle.’ I have a sneaking suspicion that I know who really writes these, which I am utterly cool with. I have the first one in the series on my Nook, and I cannot wait to catch up with the tv show to see if I’m missing any clues.

What is on your wishlist? Do you like to read fiction, or are you a nonfiction sort of reader? Do any of these books sound appealing?

Musing Monday

MizB over at Should be Reading has a meme on Mondays–questions you should answer… So here is today’s…

Well, though I’ve been teased mercilessly by some of my family as the ‘bookworm’ I would have to say I come by it honestly. On my Father’s side, his Mother and her Mother read quite a bit. I’ve also given things to my Grandmother to read. My Father reads a bit, but not a whole lot.

On my Mother’s side, my mother reads (christian inspirational fiction and romance novels). My step-dad reads (sci-fi, fantasy and weird quirky things) and my youngest brother reads (fantasy, history). My Mother’s parents read quite a bit as well (nonfiction and westerns and poli-sci). My mom’s sister read a lot, but it was mostly fantasy and religious texts.
