Reading (Binge)

In the last four weeks I have read the following books:
The Blue Star Tony Earley
A Home on the Field Paul Cuadros
The Hunger Games Suzanne Collins
Mennonite in a Little Black Dress Rhoda Janzen
Catching Fire Suzanne Collins
Both Ways Is the Only Way I Want It Maile Meloy
Mockingjay Suzanne Collins
Dragonsbane Barbara Hambly

Now that the weather has turned cold, the time for climbing under a blanket with a book has begun. And of all the odd blessings... I haven't gotten addicted to any new TV shows this fall! Last night, while the ND football game was on, I happily sipped on my first gallon of spiced cider (made in the crock pot with an orange wheel sporting a cinnamon-stick axle and clove tread) and read about dragons, magic, and the plight of a 36 year-old woman caught between dedicating herself to her craft or loving her children and their father. Hmmmm. Though I don't get to turn into a dragon in the end--like she did.

I think a friend's going to lend me The Girl With A Dragon Tatoo too...

I thought you might like Dragonsbane. Did you? Or did it strike too close to home to be comfortable. I haven't read the sequels, but heard from my sister Lisa that they aren't quite in the same league.
