Weekend Book Report #16

Again, it has seem that time has past without me. I had meant to get post up last week and never did. And this post I had meant to write yesterday and didn't. In fact I did nothing yesterday.

So okay this post could be called a month of reading but we'll stick to the weekend book report. I've gotten some reading done but not as much as normal. I'm still trying to read The Scarlet Letter. Still haven't even finished the introduction. Maybe I'll get to it after this current stash of library books. But now on to finished books:

Nauti Boy (Nauti, #1)

First off a romance novel. Nauti Boy by Lora Leigh. Again high on smut. Two stars

Marked (House of Night, #1)

Marked by P.C. & Kristin Cast. This is book one of the House of Night series. This is a young adult paranormal series. It's about a girl deal with normal teenager problems and on top of that she has started to become a vampire and is forced to transfer into a different school. Was an okay read. Diffidently a book for teenagers. I will not be reading anymore if this series. Two stars.


Divisaderso by Michael Ondaatje. This is fiction novel. And well I didn't read it. I listened to it on CD on my way home from work. It is a twisting of two tales. One about two sisters and a boy that grew up together and the other about a writer. It was very interesting to listen to, but I'm not sure if I would have finished the book had I been reading it. There was a lot of jumping around from time and points of view. Good but only two and half stars.

Divine Misdemeanors (Meredith Gentry, #8)

Divine Misdemeanors by Laurell K. Hamilton. This book eight in the Merry Gentry series. It would be an adult fantasy book. This is one of my favorite series. So my opinion is a little bias. It is about a feary princess. In this one she is helping solve a series of murders. Fair warning to those who have not read any books my this author: there is a fair amount a smut in them. Four and half stars.

The Maze of Bones (The 39 Clues, #1)

The Mazes of Bones by Rick Riordan. This is the first book in The 39 Clues series. I would classify it as independent reader - spense book. In this book we meet a brother and sister who decide to take a chance at a larger inheritance. Love the concept of the book or the idea behind it. The whole National Treasure or Indian Jones type story. But I found it very lacking. I would not recommend this book at all. Not even to The Boy who is only 13. One star.

Well I hope everyone had a great weekend and the Monday was a good start to your week.
