boox i wreck o mend

My goal this year: finish the sequel to Shifters.  If you are as anxious as I am, give me some strong worded reminders to get my but in gear and type type type.

Some good books I've read so far this year are:  Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie by Alan Bradly. Flavia de Luce, 11-year-old expert on poisons, uses her detective skills to clear her father from suspicion of the murder of a childhood schoolmate.  Best qualities of this book - Voice - 1950's staunch British genius girl with a fetish for death and courage beyond her years.  Her character is witty, endearing and entertaining.  I look forward to reading the next books.

The Rise of Nine (Lorien Legacies, #3)
I Am Number Four series is extra special because they're written by an alien.  The two best qualities are the unique characters and non-stop action.  I can't wait for the next books to be made into movies.  There are some fun interactive websites for these books. Including http://www.youtube.com/iamnumberfourfans and http://iamnumberfourfans.com/the-lorien-legacies/

Second Skin (Skinned, #2)It took me forever to get to this book, but I'm so glad I did.  The Skinned series by Judith Graves begged for my attention.  Little Miss attitude meats chimera and paranormal romance.  Loved it. I guarantee the third will be just as good.







AND I have a blog post up on Indie Elite about the Art of Interruption.  Check it out.
