Where I'm at on the books front

Ok so I haven't posted here in a while. Truth be told I haven't done huge amounts of reading and when I did I was away so couldn't write any reviews. Not good really!

Anyway, I've recently been reading 'Sourcery' by Terry Pratchett but I'm giving up on it as I'm not overly impressed with it. Don't get me wrong I love Pratchett but this and Small Gods have to be two of his worst books. Reading them is like wading through treacle and I've had enough.

I have a choice what to read next though as I've picked up the following books from the library,

Spirit of the Stone by Maggie Furey (the second in her Shadowleague triology)
The Blade of Fire by Stuart Hill (the second book in the Icemark Triology)
Inkspell by Cornelia Funke (the second book in the Inkheart triology)
and finally The Sterkarm Handshake by Susan Price

I'll just have to choose and get started I guess!

Saw your topic on myspace and checked out your blog. I know the sentiment. Looking at the books that you have reviewed so far, looks like you may like some fantasy but need a strong charachter. Try Kelley Armstrong. She writes a series called "Women of the Other World" First book is Bitten. Main character is Elena, the only female werewolf in existance. She has left her pack to be on her own but gets called back when the pack is threatened by mutts. In the fights that ensues she is nothing close to a shrinking violet.

If you find this at all useful, I have just recently joined myspace. Feel free to check me out, I have a small blog where I plan to post current reads, and you can email me if you find yourself in need of good reads.
