I love the library. New books, old, familiar books. a quiet place to read or write…
Of course, for days after going to the library. I get almost nothing productive done because I’m reading. I mean, I still do my schoolwork, but the stories just seem to draw me in.
And I have been waiting FOREVER for several new books: The Son of Neptune, Mastiff, and Inheritance. I’ve read Son of Neptune (book two in the Heroes of Olypus series by Rick Riordan) and presently have Mastiff (book three of the Beka Cooper series by Tamora Pierce), and am waiting to get my hands on a copy of Inheritance (the fourth book in the Inheritance cycle by Chrisopher Paolini).

I just got done with this great book called The Innocent Mage by Karen Miller, the first book in the Kingmaker, Kingbreaker duet. It’s got everything: a rough, sarcastic protagonist, an up-and-down plot, a host of colorful and well-developed character, just a touch of magic… For those who love to read fantasy, The Innocent Mage is a must-read. I can’t wait to get the second book, which according to my local library is The Awakened Mage, and according to the Karen Miller site is Innocence Lost. There’s also a follow-up duet in the same world, called The Fisherman’s Children. Once I read Awakened Mage/Innocence Lost, I’ll probably track down copies of the Fisherman’s Children books.
