That wolf in the tower

I love being able to adjust dates. It is like having correct history at work.  I must admit, I am a bit shocked that it has been a while since I updated my blog. I didn't mean for two months to go sliding past, but they did.  I am writing this in August, and dating it for July... purely to almost accurately track what I was reading and when.  For some reason, I like having this record.  The books I read throughout the year are but one of the joyrides I am on.

You could also track my year by kids sports.

How many walks I take at lunch at work.

How many times I check my budget.

I am loving the different fantasy books I have been reading.  This was another one that was a solid entry for me.  Great summer read, I liked that this one wasn't a series, and different enough.

Well done trilogy

All three were great, and the second book didn't go through that terrible slump that so many second books do.

This is such a different series, and the embedded photos are just wonderfully strange.

I am really looking forward to seeing this movie when it comes out.

Still lurvley.

When you are a little ragged around the edges and want to read a lovely book.. any in this series is worth your time.

Nothing earth shattering, just lovely reads about the fictional town of Ballybucklebo in Northern Ireland in the mid 20th century.

Something about this series...

Does this book/series count as a guilty pleasure? I would say magical fantasy and defintely YA, and I loved them all.  I have no idea why... but they were just right up my alley and I enjoyed all four books.  This one was no exception.  Heck, I may even go and read her other series.
