Reading more…

It seems like I’m in a reading mode right now…

I re-read Diana Wynne Jones’ Chrestomanci books
Charmed Life
Witch Week
The Lives of Christopher Chant
They are not that popular here in Sweden, so I haven’t even SEEN any others… 😦
I like them.

Neil Gaiman: StardustΒ 
Lovely little fairytale πŸ™‚

Eva Ibbotson: A Company of Swans
I love her romance novels πŸ™‚ They make me so happy and in love with the whole world πŸ™‚

And then some…

Charlotte Haptie:
Otto and flying twins (1) and
Otto and the bird charmers (2)

I like these a lot though they are hard to read – emotionally… I really hate persecution… *brr*

Michael Buckley:
Sisters Grimm I: The Fairy-tale Detectives;
-Sisters Grimm II; The Unusual Suspects

Lovely LOL

Karen Stolz: World of Pies
Very nice πŸ™‚ With recipes…

James Redfield: The Celestine Prophecy
It’s not good enough to be a good adventure story, though the idea is good; and not good enough to be a good spiritual self-help kind of a book either… But it gave me something πŸ™‚

Sue Monk Kidd: Secret Life of Bees
I liked this one too πŸ™‚

Dean R. Koonz: Odd Thomas
There’s a twist in the story… I cried rivers in the end…
