Since the last one I have read about 4 books.
First of all one evening I read one of my “teacher books”, a book I read just because my kids are reading it. I have read ALL of these and they all make me laugh. It was the latest Diary of a Wimpy Kid. It’s your basic struggles of a middle school nerd. Greg is a middle child and doesn’t have any “cool” friends. He’s always trying to do what is right but in his awkward way he ends up getting in trouble for them. The most awesome part about me reading this book in one evening is that Veronica picked it up next and has already read 2 books in this series.
Another book I read in a quick time frame was Bared to You by Sylvia Day. Yep it’s one of those books, given to me by the bestie and one you would rather read on an e-reader so no one knows that you are reading porn. It’s been compared to Fifty Shades, but there is no red room of pain. It was a pretty good story and I did find myself caught up in their relationship a few times. However the hubster complained that he didn’t benefit from me reading that book as much as he did from me reading Fifty Shades. So I guess in his opinion it was a waste of a book.
The next 2 maybe 3 books I have read at still continuing in the The Alchemyst: The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel by Michael Scott. I say 2 maybe 3 because I finished book 3 and then went into book 4 right away finishing that one in 2 days. I”m already 100 pages into the 5th book of the series The Warlock and I just started it last night. I CAN NOT PUT THESE BOOKS DOWN!! Yes they are fantasy but there are so many levels to them. It becomes more then just a battle between good and evil and sometimes like one of the main characters those lines between good and evil are so blurred and you don’t know who you want to win. All you know is that whoever wins you hope the Earth survives. It might take place in present time but you are constantly thrown between times and different Shadowrealms. It is a teen story but every adult I have given these books to love them.
While I’m sitting here talking about my nerdiness let me go ahead and talk about a t.v. show that the hubster has gotten me hooked on, Merlin on the syfy channel. It’s a very interesting take on the story of Arthur and Merlin the Magician, starting in their younger years.
I would also like to say that I did NONE of these books just by my reviews. I’m not a review writer and I’m always afraid that I’m going to give too much away. So if you like fantasy stories that are so believable you can almost think they might be real…then look into the Alchemist series.
