I run with Werewolves.

Finished Dead to the World by Charlaine Harris today. Loved this book so much. Don;t get me wrong I love Bill, Eric and all the other vampires. But shifters, werewolves to be exact are mt favorite supernatural being. In this book Sookie gets much more involved in the shifter and witches world. Which I enjoyed thoroughly this book, possibly more so then the other three of the series I have read. The Sookie Stackhouse novels are the perfect combo of funnt and supernatural. They will make you laugh, get tear eyes and sometimes go ew. Yet another highly recomended book. Although do start at the beginnging of the series, new comers.

In other news, started classes agian so swamped with school work as usally. Last semester as a undergraduate. Woot woot. Single again, recently broke it off with the guy I was seeing, since we wanted differnt things. Which is a shame cause I really thought he was the one. Oh well at least I have my knitting to keep me company.

Finished reading Untamed (Book four of the House of Night series) by P.C and Kristin Cast this morning. I truly enjoy this series even if it is a little on the juvenile side. For those of you who don't know the House of Night series. It is basically about how teenagers are chosen to attend the House of Night. Where they learn to become adult vampyres. The books follow Zoey Redbird and her time at the school. So far there are four books, the fifth one coming out in March. If you like the Twilight Saga you will enjoy these books. Highly recommenced them.

Love me some Cap'n Jack

Just finished Another Life(Torchwood Novel) by Peter Anghelides today. I originaly bought this novel do to my addiction to the show. (which I'm hoping comes back to BBC soon) Easy, and enjoyable read. Combines both the crazy sci fi stuff and funny characters that you will become attached to. Each character is portrayed as they are in the show with thier differnt personilites. I plan on reading the other novels as well. Each book is written by a differnt author, just like each episode is directed by a differnt person in the series. Highly recomend this novel to anyone who enjoys the show or enjoys the sci fi genre.

Sticks and Strings

Finished Casting Spells by Barbara Bretton yesterday. Very cute novel. My mom got if for me a gifty since I'm obsessed with knitting and magic. Its one of those books once you start it its hard to put down. It will make you laugh, and believe in true love. The book is basicly about this women Chole Hobbs who owns a knitting shop called Sticka and Strings in a magical town of Sugar Maple. Her best friends are a wicth, feae and a shape shifter. She stands out in the town as the only true human living there who is the ancetsor of the founder of the town. When a murder happens in her town a poilcemen Luke comes to investigate. Chole falls in love with him and finds her true destiny. Great read, I highly recomend it.

Hannibal the Cannibal

So yesterday at work I finished Hannibal by Thomas Harris. What a spectacular novel. Its really a shame that it got so butchered in the movie. So if you have seen the movie (or not) I highly suggest you read this book. Like other books that have been turned into movies, I much prefer the book. Once you get reading this you will not be able to put it down. I also like that in this book you get a glimpse of why Dr. Lecter is the way he if. For his full background story I would suggest reading Hannibal Rising also by Thomas Harris. That book gives you the full story of how he became what he is in Red Dragon, Silence of the Lambs and Hannibal. A warning to those these books are very dark and creepy. Which I personally love to read, but some might not. Brillently written with twists and turns you would never see coming.
