yeah, from what i was told, she didnt want to write another one because she didnt want her ex husband getting part of the cut.


lis, Plains of Passage was the last one I read, but my dad has the whole series, and when i moved back home i found this one in the garage, so i figured i might as well keep reading the series.

Just started up East of Eden by Steinbeck. Torn so far. Part of me loves his writing and part of me detests it. I'm about 150 pages in though, and it's picking up pretty rapidly. How does East of Eden compare to his other novels? The only Steinbeck I've read is the high school-mandatory Pastures of Heaven and some of his short stories.

I finished Perdido Street Station! It only took me a few years.

I moved on to Death of Kings by Bernard Cornwell. It's book 6 in his Saxon Stories historical fiction series.

I just picked up this weekend and need to start reading Mistborne by Brandon Sanderson. Heard some good things about it, plus I'm not ready to pay $20 for an oversized paperback of Wise Man's Fears. It just won't look good on my shelf next to Name of the Wind (if there is room at all).

Finished Death of Kings this weekend. Couldn't put it down. Time to hit the TBR pile.

I had Cats Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut recommended to me by a friend, and so far I really like it. Vonnegut's writing really draws you in!

Currently reading the "Garrett, P.I." series by Glenn Cook. Very well written. I've finished the first three books, and started on the 4th. (There are 12 total, so I'll be reading for a while yet!)
