What Are You Reading? January
I finished [U/] ClockWork Prince [/U] by Cassandra Clare yesterday. I went to amazon and bought a novella Never to Sleep by Rachel Vincent and also barrowed Bloodlines by Rachelle Mead from the library so im going to be one busy reader for the next week or two :) There are so many books to be read and so little time! Drat that house for being in need of cleaning! :lol:

Oh, I didn't know that Cassandra Clare had another book out?? I'll have to put Clockwork Prince on my TBR list. I've enjoyed her other books.

I actually haven't started any new books this year yet. I'm still trying to finish up a few books that I started last year, at the beginning of the year! :blush:

I finally finished up A Whisker of Evil. Trying to be superorganized in 2011, I made up a spreadsheet to keep track of my reading. Well, it looks like I started reading A Whisker of Evil on 1/29/11. It took me almost a year to finish it! :o

It wasn't a bad book. I just wasn't very into it, even though I love mysteries. I think what the problem was, was that I kept thinking I've read this book before and I was afraid of finding out if I read further, that I did. I did read one book from this series/author before but as I finished the book, I realized it wasn't this one.

I'm now reading Fruit of All Evil by Paige Shelton. I'm considering it my new book of 2012 even though I did read a handful of pages at the end of December. It's already Jan 9 and I haven't even really read much yet. I'm going to blame it on the kids' birthdays and all for now. I really hope it's not indicative of the kind of reading year I am going to have....

ETA: I just realized I wrote that I'm NOT reading Fruit of All Evil - of course, I'm reading it! :rolleyes:

I'm reading The Red Queen by Philippa Gregory. I was hooked after reading The Other Boleyn Girl. But gee, it's so confusing trying to follow who is who and what family/house they belong to, esp since almost everyone has the same name! But fascinating nonetheless!

Re: What Are You Reading? January
I finished The Red Queen. Loved it. That time period is so fascinating, but yet at the same time I cringe at the thought of all the violence of war and instability of the time. I think Philippa Gregory is a great storyteller. The Red Queen was definitely a page turner. I liked it as much as I did The Other Boleyn Girl which was one of my favorites from her. It makes me want to re-read The White Queen which is the first book in the Cousin's War trilogy and the same story but written from the perspective of Elizabeth Woodville/Queen Elizabeth.

I haven't decided what to read next yet. At the rate I'm going, I don't think I'm going to meet my reading challenges this year. The Red Queen is only my 2nd book for the year. I'm a bit behind compared to years past.
