I have been in beast mode for, like, a whole week now. Been reading, reading, reading like crazy. I've also been trying to catch up on my reviews, since I'm still behind no small amount.
But I am so excited for the books I got this week. I can't wait to start reading them -- thankfully I'm a bit ahead on my reading schedule and since they happen to be on next month's reading list, I get to start them right away!
Guardians of Ga'Hoole #1
Once I saw the movie, I knew I had to read these books. I absolutely loved -- like, loved -- the movie. Everything from the music to the voices to the epic story and great graphics. I couldn't curb my curiosity: I started reading this as soon as I got it. I'm also pretty excited about this series being fifteen books strong. It means it'll be a while before it's all over!
I remember seeing this when it first came out but only recently decided to read it. I can't remember why. Just that I needed something else to read this month and it just popped into my head. I've already started it -- it's actually really creepy so far, in that I-have-no-idea-what-is-going-on kind of way. But it's only been thirty pages, so I'm allowed to be confused.
Oh my gosh -- who isn't excited for the third Heist Society book!? I kind of completely forgot what happened in the last book, so I feel a bit boggled about how to continue. I'll probably have to go back and reread the last third of Uncommon Criminals so I won't go in completely blind. SO EXCITED.
I really liked Touch of Power even though I didn't think it was as great as Maria V. Snyder's other works. I don't remember much of it (again) and luckily, since I never reviewed it, I get to reread it before launching into Scent of Magic. Despite drawing a blank on these books, I'm super excited for this next installment, enthralled as I am by Maria V. Snyder's awesomeness.
