Only the Good Spy Young by Ally carter. It is the 4th book in the Gallagher Girls series. It's a fun, easy read and relaxes me when I read. Also, it gives me an opportunity to explore other author's style.

Scarlette Fever by Maureen Johnson. A whimsical story that keeps me interested however unlikely the events may be.

The hangman's daughter and The Dark Monk by Oliver Potzach. Both are about a Bavarian villiage in the 1670's. It follows the adventures of the hangman's daughter with her dad and the town doc. It was a good set of books. I will ge the 3rd one too!

I'm saying this counts. I have read about 15 magazines this last 2 weeks. That is a lot of stories and articles. So they are an equivalent to a shorter novel. Most were self-help type articles as well as serial stories and some for fun articles.

The next book I read is Every Demon has his day by Cara Lockwood. It is a quirky, easy read with some far-fetched ideas. It is another take on good vs evil but it works as a good story. I recommend it!

I read two books this week. Coming in as book #28 is Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame-Smith. I was worried about this because I had heard the movie was terrible. I do not believe, however, that Hollywood does justice to many books. This book was quite delightful. The history was accurate and I believed it. I had to mentally tell myself that it was fiction. A sign of a great book. I would suggest it to anyone looking for an interesting read.

Book #29 I have been going through slowly and in no particular order. It is what to expect while you're expecting. Not much to say about it. It's a book about getting and being pregnant. Handy for me but not for most people.

Time to choose #30!

The Sweet Life e-series part 1

This is just a continuation from sweet valley confidential. I am reading it because this ties up my childhood faves and takes me back a bit. I love to see what the future holds for characters I was so vested in when I was 12. It's silly and stupid to my husband but it has been fun for me so far.

On to part 2

This was Part 2 of the Sweet Life e-series. It keeps me reading these darn cliff hangers!

I read parts 3, 4, 5 and 6 of the Sweet Life e-series. All things considered, it was a great series. The last two words made me want to throw my kindle against the wall though. So frustrating when it's the end of a series and they leave a cliffhanger.

GUYAHOLIC by Carolyn Mackler

It was a quick, fun read. It only took about 2 hours as I kept turning the pages. I felt like I was abandoning the MC on her cross-country trek!

Paper Towns by John Green

While reading this book, I realized that no matter how many eyes see something, errors remain.
