The House of the Dead which was a stunning look at life in a Siberian prison. I started a new series by K.A. Applegate (new for me, not new for the world) and I'm really excited to read the remaining 11 books. I also read Jekel Loves Hyde by Beth Fantaskey, and while I enjoyed it, I was a bit too hung up on the sexuality and gender issues.
This past week I also finished Manhood for Amateurs by Michael Chabon, which was a close second to House of the Dead, and I read Charlaine Harris' Dead and Gone, book 9 in the Sookie Stackhouse series. Reviews for those books will be going up sometime this week...I hope.
I quite happily finished my mid-year reading report, and with 67 books read at the mid-way point, I'm a bit ahead of my typical reading pattern.
~~~~~~~A Request~~~~~~~From August 9 to 18, I have a family reunion/small town festival. During that time, I will be pretty MIA online. If anyone is interested in writing a guest post to be published here while I'm gone, I'd love it. If you want a guest post from me in exchange, I can do that too.
If you are interested, email me at eclectic[dot]eccentric[at]hotmail[dot]com!
