Fablehaven / Brandon Mull

This is book one of the Fablehaven series and it doesn’t disappoint.  I enjoyed reading about the sanctuary with all of the mystical creatures and the two young kids who are stronger than they could imagine as they work to save lives and the sanctuary.

Pre-teen read.


Fablehaven Adventure / Brandon Mull

What a fun read for kids around nine-years-old.  Every week when Chris would spend the night, I would read to him at the close of the day from these books.  Many times we didn’t want to stop when it was time to go to sleep, because we wanted to know what would happen next.

Fablehaven is where mystical creatures of all description have gathered for centuries to hide and prevent their extinction.  The sanctuary survives today as one of the last strongholds of true magic in our cynical world, and Kendra and her brother Seth have no idea that their grandfather is the caretaker.

______ enjoy the adventure!

The Mummy / Anne Rice

My favorite books of Anne’s are the three about the witches.  For a book about a mummy, this was pretty good.  It was about a love that could not be fulfilled, Ramses for Cleopatra.

Black Numbers / Dean Lappi

I list this book as ADULT READING.

Definitely different.  I was intrigued by the idea that mathematics was the core of the power and magic, but I’m still out on whether I actually liked the book.  It was slow, but it’s book one in a series and book two hasn’t published.  I have nothing to help judge whether the writer lacks or if book one was just slow in establishing the foundation for the rest of a great series. Time will tell.

Lethal People / John Locke

This was an easy read.  I felt like I was reading a man’s journal or maybe listening in on a conversation at a bar while one guy tells another about his last adventure.  It made me smile and next time I need a light read, I’ll pick up the next one in the series.

Naked In Death / J.D. Robb

MY FAVORITE, I really like this series.

This is the first book of the “in death” series by J.D. Robb, alias for Nora Roberts.  Lieutenant Eve Dallas is the main character and in this first book she meets Roarke her future husband.  There is the right amount of romance mixed in with the murder cases Eve solves.

The Way Of Shadows / Brent Weeks

This is my first book about assassins.  It was like reading a period piece, but without the place really existing. It started great and ended with me wanting to read the second book.  It didn’t grab me by the shorts though and so I wonder what book about assassins would.
