How May has been flying by! I decided to change the update feature to something more dragon-y themed, so it’s now Updates from the Lair :D. Lair meaning the dragon’s lair ;-). Anyway, the past couple of weeks have been fun and busy and I have really no excuse for not posting an update except for last week when I was traveling all over Minnesota!
This week I joined in with Bout of Books (or last week mostly I guess, but it missed the last update) and so I read a loooooot of books, yey!
I’ve started listening to Clockwork Princess on audio and I love the narrator! He’s giving Will a great Welsh accent. I haven’t actually gotten to listen to much since I wasn’t driving at all during last week (road trip means the boyfriend drives, yey!).
I also started Outcast by Adrienne Kress and am having a really good time with it. It’s still on Netgalley last I checked ;-). It is about angels, but so far it hasn’t hit my “oh gawd not more angels” bone. Outcast is mostly about a guy from the 50’s showing up in our time and adjusting to high school. I’ll let you know how it goes!
And in case you missed it, these were my posts this week:
I gave 2 stars to The Resurrectionist, it was pretty creepy!
