    Happy February! I side tracked and read Live it, Love it, earn it... Four isn't bad for the month though!

    A few titles:

    I listened to Cameron, A Dog's Purpose, on audio. A wonderful book, but have a hanky near by! Actually, the sad comes and goes, but what I remember most is the hilarious take on the world through the dog's point of view. Delightful in every way.

    Finch Handbook. Not exactly accentuating the positive - it made me feel that they would keel over dead in three days if I didn't have a live-in avian vet. Since finches are what I've settled on, I hope it's not that bad!

    Currently reading Finches for Dummies. I'll finish it before bed. Don't know what's up next.

    Only got 1/4 of the way through Julie & Julia by Julie Powell and that was it for me. I just couldn't get past her attitude. She was a whiner and her need to go off on tangents talking politics and the off putting way she talked about 9/11. ugh. Not often a book turns me completely off but she managed it.

    I did enjoy quick reads of Body Movers 1-3 by Stephanie Bond.

    Since my last update (One Second After) I've finished up 3 more:
    1. The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold
    2. Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert
    3. The Road by Cormac McCarthy

    all three were great. Read 1/2 of The Shack by Wm Paul Young and just couldn't get into it.

    Guess I'll select my 4 for February. Maybe I'll finally read the Hunger Games, I've heard GREAT stuff about it.

    Just finished my 3rd Lynsay Sands book Bite Me if You Can I am really enjoying her books. If you like Vampire books, this is a really light heart series.

    Next James Patterson.

    Finished 4 more:

    12. Fey Born by R. Garland Gray--A paranormal romance. It was OK. I think this is part of a series, but I won't go rushing out to find the rest.
    13. Immortal Warrior by Lisa Hendrix--another paranormal romance (see a trend here? ). This one was good, again part of a series, but I think I will try to find the rest.

    14. The Birth House by Ami McKay--This is a Canadian author; the story takes place in Nova Scotia. It's about midwives and home healers. Really good book!
    15. Hallowed by Cynthia Hand--young adult novel; second in a series. This one's about part-angels. Enjoyed it a lot, now just have to wait for the next one!

    According to my library tracker, I read just over 150 books last year. I was unemployed for part of it though so I had all day. I'll be happy with 50 books this year.
    So far this year, I've read 13 books.
    My next is one of the Sue Grafton series - E is for Evidence.

    I finished Parenting with Love and Logic. I am hoping to finish The Alchemist tonight.
    Next I can read Freedom or The Kitchen House? Which should it be?

    Just started Janet Evanovich's One for the Money. I've read the rest of the series already but my library just got this one. Good for fluff reading.
