If I find a book I like I will find all their books and read them..mostly it works out well, sometimes it works out just fucking fantastic.
As is the case of John Connolly. I think the first book I read by him was Dark Hollow. So I went and started reading all of his books..He does a series in some that have the same characters..I really liked them and read them all. Then I found a book by him that I hadn't read and we didn't have it at the Library but Nancy got it for me from the Waco Library. It's called The Book of Lost Things. I'll read the top of the fly leaf.
"New York Times bestselling author John Connolly's unique imagination takes readers through the end of innocence into adulthood and beyond in this dark and triumphantly creative novel of grief and loss, loyalty and love, and the redemptive powers of stories."
It's a small book, only 339 pages. I read it in 2 days. I fecking loved it. Remember how gung ho I was over The Name of The Wind?....Well, I'm just as gung ho about this one. It's a yafta.
Trust me. It's tied with the #1 position of the best book I read this year, last year and the past twenty-eleven years. I repeat..trust me...yafta read it..

Those sound interesting. I'm currently reading Brisingr by Christopher Paolini. It's the third book in the Inheritance series. I was going to stop reading his books because some have accused him of plagiarizing Lord of the Rings but they are so good, I just HAD to know what happens in the last book. (of course, now I find out this really isn't the last book, there's a fourth one on the way...LOL)

I can't read any more books I'm already reading 5 and reading blogs and stumbling all over the net and keeping up with the world series and watching all the political shows and my favorite shows like Heroes and a few others and taking Grandkids to school and picking them up and taking son to work and picking him up and going to work and even sleeping a bit. Not to mention playing World of Warcraft and Warhammer online games.
Getting to be dull around home.
