The inlaws went home yesterday and in the rush to get everything done I forgot to do my MM post! But here’s what I got:
– Vampirates by Justin Somper, from Borders. You have NO IDEA how excited I am to read this. Vampires! Pirates! VAMPIRATES. I am hoping it’s actually a decent read, even though it’s COMPLETELY RIDICULOUS. But the ridiculousness makes it AWESOME. Hopefully. Anyway.
– Triskellion by Will Peterson, also from Borders. It was on one of the discount shelves, and after reading the summary (which includes the phrase “archaeological adventure”) I decided to go for it.
– The Optimist’s/Pessimist’s Handbook by Niall Edworthy and Petra Cramsie, from my brother as a Christmas gift! I always considered myself with be more on the optimist side (though cynical), but according to my mother and stepfather I’m a decided pessimist. Heh.
I’ve also got a big box of books coming from Barnes & Noble sometime this week, hopefully, so that’s make for an exciting MM post.
In other blog news, I wanted to mention that:
a) I know I haven’t posted any book reviews in quite a while, but my reading does tend to slow down during holidays simply because I can’t seem to tear myself away from the computer and actually finish a book. Whoops.
b) I should start posting reviews again sometime after the 5th, as that’s when my vacation’s over. Darn.
c) I’m planning on posting something New Year’s-related in the next few days, plus a review of ebook readers on the iPod Touch. So that’s something.
d) I hope you’re all having a lovely holiday, and that you’re getting more reading done than I am. 😀
