Absolute Chills

So I realize that this is a book blog. And I also realize that I have not been blogging very much of late. So you would think that this entry would, needfully so, be about books.

Well, it's not; well, sort of not.

I just watched the trailer for the next Harry Potter, and I have goosebumps! November, why are you so far away!


In May

>> Tuesday, June 1, 2010


I read one book (besides book club pick) and have a pile, yes pile, of overdue library books that I wanted to read. But life, was, well...life and so, in May I read:

The Ropemaker by Peter Dickinson (YA Fantasy) follows a young girl who must go on a long journey to find a magician who can save her land and her people. I know, I know. I read a lot of books that would fit that description. But I can't help it. I am drawn to the quest, to the journey of self discovery and well to magic and mystery. And this book is just that. Evil emperors, rogue magicians, a strange sickness, magical spoons, cranky grandmothers and a girl who learns her place in the world. It didn't make my heart skip erratically, like the thought of Mockingjay does, but it definitely falls in the category of good YA fantasy.
