I'm a Turtle

Yep, friends.  I haven't posted a reading list in two months, and do you know why?  I've become a turtle when it comes to reading.  Check my list for March and April:

  • CELEBRITY IN DEATH by JD Robb ... Mystery/Suspense  The newest installment in the Eve Dallas series.  Great read.  This one's especially for all you Peabody fans. 
  • 77 SHADOW STREET by Dean Koontz ... Horror  This one reminds me of the Koontz books of old that he put out way back in the day when I first started reading him.  It was a little weird, a lot crazy, and then when I thought it couldn't get any more nutso, the book veered sharply into left field.  Well played, Koontz.  Well played.
  • PANDEMONIUM by Lauren Oliver ... YA Dystopian  The second book in her DELIRIUM trilogy.  Love as a disease that must be cured.  If you haven't read either book, you definitely must.  Just wait until the third book, REQUIEM comes out next year or you'll be beyond frustrated with Ms. Oliver.  Can you say cliff-hanger ending? GRRR
  • A STORM OF SWORDS by George R.R. Martin ... Fantasy  Book Three in the GAME OF THRONES series.  This was a re-read for me, but I've been dying to read book four and because SOOOOOOOOO much happened in book three, I needed to refresh my memories before plunging into the next installment.
  • A FEAST FOR CROWS by George R.R. Martin ... Fantasy  Book Four in the GAME OF THRONES series.  Now, I really, really, really need to read book five, but what happens when I finish that one?!?!  A DANCE WITH DRAGONS is the most recent one published.  Dammit, George!  Write more books already, and don't be giving me no lame excuse about how each book is a thousand plus pages and it takes time.  I need MOOOOOORRRREEEEE.
And that's my list.  I know.  I know.  Only five books in two months.  What is wrong with me, folks?  Well, at least I can console myself with the fact that the Martin books were extra long, right?  RIGHT?
