What I'm Reading

At the moment I've got The Pain Merchants by Janice Hardy in my bag. I started it a couple of days ago and I'm really enjoying it so far. Good action, fun likeable characters, interesting fantasy setting without overwhelming detail.

I think what I'm enjoying most about it is that, apart from knowing Nya's age, you'd hardly guess this was young adult. It's got a quality that just sets it out as a good story, regardless of the intended audience. I'm actually considering adding a Reviews page to this blog when I'm done.

I have a lot to read in the coming months. Ghost Story is coming out soon, and I need my Harry Dresden fix. I've also discovered a new series called the Iron Druid Chronicles by Kevin Hearne. This is an urban fantasy series inspired by Celtic mythology. I can't wait to get my hands on it.

What are you currently reading or looking forward to reading?


  1. it is great to know that you write reviews and share what you read.

    check out short story slam and make a submission today.

  2. I am currently reading the 39 Clues Book 2. I have to keep up with the MG and YA books since that is what I write. I have many books waiting to be read on my shelf and will pick out what title jumps out at me (you are right about the title grabbing a reader).
    I am thinking a good spy novel might be next...

  3. Bluebell Books: Well, I don't generally write reviews. I'm not sure how good I am at it.

    Halli: I'm also trying to keep up with reading in my genre. I don't write YA, but I do enjoy reading it.
