Epitaph Road by David Patneaude

Even though I seem to keep misspelling his name every time I type it.
May the word counts be ever in your favor. http://www.sommerleigh.com
Be nice, or I get out the Tesla cannon.

Recently finished Founding Brothers by Joseph J. Ellis and How to Read Literature like a Professor by Thomas C. Foster. I'm halfway through The Awakening by Kate Chopin and I'll hopefully finish that one tomorrow, when I plan on starting War by Sebastian Junger and diving into White Fang by Jack London again.

All of this in the next week before school starts.

Robin and Down the Well - I'm so jealous right now. No where in Australia has it in yet. I have to work today so fingers crossed my mum will be lovely and go looking again for me. We went all over Newcastle trying to find it yesterday :(
I'm sure the bookstores in my area sent word of the crazy Mockingjay lady that was flapping about...

I'm currently on a reread of Catching Fire so I won't feel like my time was wasted yesterday (even though I know it was).

I just finished re-reading Vera Nazarian's _Mansfield Park and Mummies_ which is so insanely good
I had to snag it back from the friend who borrowed it for too long. I feel like most of the Austen
mash-ups were written by people who had only a smirking familiarity with Austen. Nazarian's
'Austen-voice' is as scarily accurate as Mary Robinette Kowal's style in _Shades of Milk and Honey_,
but filtered through Monty Python comedy instead of mannerist fantasy.

Do you just want me to send you a copy? Let me know.

I just got done re-reading for the second time Hush Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick in preperation for Crescendo coming out in October~!

And now I'm reading Sin Undone by Larissa Ione for the plot, I tell you, I really mean it! I don't read any other romance! XD

I have thought to re-read Angelology again, but the first time was such a dragging agony that I don't know if I'll be able to. There was too much detail in some parts that I thought I was in History class. And I love History! Ah, that book. I respect it, and yet I hate it. It was wonderful in parts and yet the ending was a swift fall into a black hole of OMG WTF what were you thinking? [hugs it] I love you pretty book, but why must you make my head spin?
I'm on Tumblr!

The blog died...but so did I...and now I'm alive again! OMG.
