Monday - sweet Monday!

How many times can you really say that?!  I am on summer break from school, so I get to say that for a few weeks! 

I am pleased to say that although I have nothing in my mailbox for this week, I get get a bit of reading done! 

I finished Once Bitten by Kalayna Price: it wasn't what I expected, but I enjoyed the story very much.   I have put Twice Dead on my TBR list and will be picking it up as soon as I get some of my current summer reading list behind me. 
Amazon Product Description:

Vampires and Shapeshifters. A Fictionwise bestseller: No. 1 on the Fictionwise Dark Fantasy list in Feb. 2009 Kita Nekai, on the run and the smallest of her shifter clan-a calico cat among lions and tigers-is being hunted. She was expected to accept her role as her father's successor whether or not her cat was up to the task of leading the clan. She disagreed. Now she's less than a step ahead of the hunters, bone-tired, cold, and living hand-to-mouth in the city of Haven. And that's the high point of her day. She's also drugged, "accidently" turned into a vampire, and sentenced to death for recklessly creating a rogue shifter who tortures its human prey. She's got seventy-two hours to find the rogue, evade a city full of hunters, prove she's not responsible for the rogue, and keep the vampire council from killing her. All while sorting out an apprentice mage, a married ex-boyfriend shifter-hunter, and the vampire who made her.

I also finished reading Addiction by Sandra Marshall.  This was a great read.  I won the pdf version in a blogger contest from Sandra Marshall.  I sat down to read it this evening and stopped when I finished the story.  I decided early on who I thought the killer was and couldn't possibly put it down until I knew if I was right!  Love the characters!  Joley and Jake are my favorites, then the mom.  The mom only gets a little bit of print - but you instantly love her!  I could have done without the sister Mel - too snotty and spoiled little girl for me. 

I just got an email from Sandra Marshall and the book will be out in print this summer!  Please check it out!

I have started Wereling (The Changeling in England) by Steve Feasey and I am halfway through Even Money by Dick Francis. 

I did check out a huge stack of books from the MC at school for the summer, but I will list them as I read them.
