Question of the Week: Merry Christmas! Happy Holidays! What books did Santa stuff your stocking with this holiday season? Do a holiday book haul for us! If you don’t celebrate just show off your books that you got this week. Pictures!!!
- The entire The 39 Clues: Cahills vs. Vespers series. It’s a spin-off to the original The 39 Clues series, which has 11 books. I haven’t read the original, or in fact any of The 39 Clues books. But I read the first of these books on Christmas day and enjoyed it. Review to come in the next month or so.
- Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer. Now my Twilight collection is complete- all 5 books (including The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner). I still have to re-read and review those.
- The rest of the Cirque du Freak books- books 4 through 12. I only owned the first 3, but read up to book 8. I hope to finish these for the 2014 Series Challenge, hosted by Read. Sleep. Repeat.
- The Annotated Alice- I am probably one of the biggest Alice in Wonderland fans out there, and I’m set on collecting everything I can relating to the fandom. All editions and all Alice-inspired fictions (all the ones that look interesting anyhow- I can hear you begging me to read Splintered by A.G. Howard and yes it is on my TBR). So now I have the two Dover Thrift editions (Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass), the one in the anthology pictured above, The Annotated Alice, and….
- The Alice in Wonderland pop-up book. I have the Wizard of Oz pop-up so now I have two! yay. They really are beautiful and magical.
- Saving the World and Other Extreme Sports by James Patterson- part of the Maximum Ride series. I’m only two books away from completing the series now, I believe. I might have read this one, I don’t really remember. I’ll start the series over soon enough.
- Brave New World by Aldous Huxley. My friend at school recommended this to me a while ago, and just by coincidence my dad got me this for Christmas. Fate must want me to read this book.
- Fail-Safe by two authors (I’m too lazy to look them up right now). Another dystopian sort of thing- another from my dad, along with-
- Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. Another classic I still have to read. I like Ray Bradbury though. He’s a great author.
- Various from Brian Jacques- most are from the Redwall series, but there is also Castaways of the Flying Dutchman that I just looked up and I guess it’s part of a series. I tend to shy away from new series books at this point because I have so many books I need to read and to read series’ you have to be COMITTED. I don’t really have time to start new ones at this point. But if I like this one, I’ll give it a try. From the Redwall series I received: The Bellmaker, Mariel of Redwall, Marlfox, the Long Patrol, Lord Brocktree, Martin the Warrior, Taggerung, and The Legend of Luke.
