Count at end of January

1. Blood and Chocolate, Annette Curtis Klause (a little disappointing but a good read)
2. Practical Magic, Alice Hoffman (went roaring off and was loving it, came back the next night and finished it but was a little let down and began to find the injection of magic predictable and wondered why not just do a great, straight novel, a la Barbara Kingsolver. In terms of magical realism, Gabriel Garcia Marquez she ain’t.)
3. The End, Lemony Snickett

Now reading: The Golden Bough (p. 168, Diana/Artemis fertility cults)
The Ice Queen, Alice Hoffman (in this one the magic is more deeply embedded in real, if unusual, reality. Liking it.)
The Night Journal by Elizabeth Crook (starting off good, but the MC is annoyingly passive. I hope she starts to kick some ass.)
In the wings: Looking For Alaska by John Green (which I’m really looking forward to)

One thought on “Count at end of January

  1. Oh I’m not doing nearly so well. I think the only thing I finished in January was Stephen King’s new one, Lisey’s Story. I read or re-read a few snippets of books on writing too. Right now I’m reading Terry Brooks’ memoir/writing book for the first time.
