The Tales of Beedle the Bard - J.K. Rowling

I'm rereading this one!

 

Relics and Curiosities...

The Curious Case of the Cursed Spectacles - Constance Barker

I'm going to have to either choose a new book for that square or employ a wildcard.

 

The book I chose? I'm on page two and have already encountered a few typos, and the writing...leaves a lot to be desired.

 

Example: "If my job was going nowhere and the work was unsatisfying, well I could say exactly the same for my love life. It had been five years a man had shown an interest in me, and so that you know how great a catch I thought he was, I left him standing at the altar."

 

Main character is also very full of herself.

 

I very rarely DNF, y'all know that. In fact, I'm not even sure if this counts as a DNF since I'm bailing on this without even completing two pages. Eh, I'm not counting it as a DNF, I didn't even have time to mark it as 'currently reading".

Survivor in Death

Survivor In Death (In Death, #20) - J.D. Robb

Easily one of my favorites in the series, though it's very, very difficult to read, at times. In fact, I had to set it aside at one point, because I suddenly couldn't see the words on the page due to the tears that were filling my eyes.

 

This is the 20th in the series, and therefore it's kind of hard for me to review. I will just say that if you liked the preceding books, you should like this one, too.
