More Books!!!

#16 Disease:The Extraordinary Stories Behind History's Deadliest Killers by Mary Dobson I got this for Caleb's birthday, but I love it! It's super interesting and very awesome. Man, what a great review!!

#17 NightWatch by Sergei Lukyanenko I really don't know how to describe this book. Once I got into it, it was amazing - but getting into it took like 30-40 pages. It is originally written in Russian, so I'm reading a translation. Not that that's bad, but it shows occasionally. Apparently it was huge in Russia, and the movie they made was the biggest box office take ever - until the two sequels. I definitely want to get the other two books.

#18 Maximum Ride:The Final Warning by James Patterson I won't lie, I didn't love this as much as the other three. It was good, but a bit eco-preachy. The reviews all said the same thing lol. Can't complain to much, since this was supposed to be a trilogy originally... but I was expecting more. I do want to read his books about he same concept but for adults. Hopefully those will be better.

I've been compiling a list of dates for the release of books I want:
4/29 Lady Friday comes out in paperback
5/6 Percy Jackson 4
5/6 The Host
8/1 Superior Saturday (I think this is off by a few days)
8/1 Twihlight 4
9/1 Charlie Bone 7 (Again, off by a few days)
4/28/2009 Bloodhound... seriously! A YEAR!!

Megan and I had an awesome time yesterday. Hooray for shopping!! And I loved Penelope way more than I thought I would. TO be honest, I really wasn't expecting much of anything from it. And I just loved it!
