  1. What's on the Bookshelf

    Monday, September 21, 2009

    So, I went on a bit of a book buying spree the other day. Here's what's new on the Shelf:

    The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova
    Been meaning to read this one for awhile to see what it's like.

    A Darkness Forged in Fire by Chris Evans
    A completely random impulse buy because Dymocks had 25% off.

    Manthropolgy by Peter McAllister
    I saw the author being interviewed on of the morning chat shows and thought this sounded interesting.

      oh I think The Historian looks GREAT! I wanna read it!

    2. I have a Darknes Forged in Fire. I liked it. It is a little dark but good. I am looking forward to getting the second one, which just came out with in the last month or two. I get addicted to the characters and have to know what happens. Oh well.

      I don't mind if it's dark, Melissa. Glad to hear you liked it. I'm looking forward to reading it.

    4. Terra I hope you like it. I am curious to see what you think of it. It has been a while since I read Darkness Forged in Fire. But, I would like to hear your take on it.

      I have The Historian but have yet to read it. I definitely should read it soon. It does look really good. I haven't heard of the other two but they look interesting as well. Hope you like them all.

      Meg, Manthropology is non-fiction. "Pop-science" if you will. It's about how "every man in history, back to the dawn of the species, did everything better, faster, stronger and smarter than any man today."

      I picked up a Darkness Forged in Fire after scouring the fantasy section of the shop for some real fantasy as opposed to the "paranormal romance" currently dominating that section of the shelves.

      I think I will read the Historian first up.

    7. The Historian is long-winded, but interesting and very well written.
