I thought I'd share the books I've been reading the last couple of months. I'm a very avid reader, as you can tell, I've got an average of 10 books a month. It really depends on my mood, I think. I like to escape to these other worlds and live vicariously through the characters.

I've labeled (***) the books I've enjoyed most, but I've mentioned a majority of those in previous posts, so the titles might look a little familiar.

I've enjoyed all of the books I've read these last couple of weeks. Each of them had something unique to offer. I could write summaries of every single one of them, but I figured I'd leave that to the professionals, and instead I've linked all of the books' amazon pages.

A little note: most of these books contain profanity and/or adult themes and content. Except for Changeling, Heck: Where the Bad Kids Go and most of the Grimm's fairytales, they're for more mature readers.

yumm... boooks... these look pretty interesting. I'm not one to judge books by their covers, but well... most of them had pretty nice art for the covers. For some reason, I really liked "Changeling." Maybe it's a sign that I should read it..
