I'm going to try and finish Master and Commander by the end of the week. It's been a busy last ten or so days for me, I haven't really felt like reading much so it's taken me quite awhile to finish it.

I finished the HR, The Lion's Bride. It was just OK! It way overdid it on the use of do, does, and did to the point it was distracting. 3 stars!

Now I'm starting on Twilight. I gotta see what all the fuss is about. Plus my sister is bugging me to hurry up and read it so we can go see the movie together!

Started in on the sequel to The Meaning of Night, titled The Glass of Time, and so far it is very interesting. Not at all what I had expected.

I will be interested to know your thoughts on Glass of Time when you've finished it, Telynor. I loved Meaning of Night.

It by Stephen King.

I finished The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo today and really, really enjoyed it. I will be looking out for the sequel which is due to be released in English next month.

I'm starting on Silver Wattle tonight. It's set in Australia and is a gift from my goodie swap buddie!

I'm just about to start Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen. It's a book group read.
