Currently Reading...

I have this habit of reading at least two books at the same time.

Not literally, of course.

But I'll switch back and forth between books. Not that either bores me. But my brain likes to do that sometimes and I appease it.

The pair this time around are...

Magic Lost, Trouble Found by Lisa Shearin.

If Janet Evanovich wrote fantasy, this would be the result. Raine Benares is a fabulous character and I'm thoroughly enjoying her escapades. A fun romp. I'm a little over a quarter of the way through and I've already picked up the second book.

I hear there's a third due next year.

Strangers In Paradise by Terry Moore.

Two best friends. A persistent young man. A clueless ex-boyfriend. And a dark past that returns with a vengeance.

It's a sprawling tale, both epic and intimate all at once. An excellent mix of words and pictures.

A perfect counter to your friends who think comic books are just kid stuff. After they read this, they'll never think that again.

Hey Abner!

I'm so glad you're enjoying Magic Lost, Trouble Found! You'll have to let me know what you think when you've finished.

Hey Lisa!

Thanks for stopping by.

Yes, I am thoroughly digging MLTF. If I could, I'd just spend a day sitting on the couch, getting lost in the story.

But there's that pesky day job...

(sigh)

Oh well.
