message 21: by Julia (last edited Mar 13, 2016 02:23PM) (new)

Julia Ce (juliace) Just finished reading Fire Touched by Patricia Briggs. It's the 9th installment of her "Mercy Thompson" series. I thought this was a very enjoyable read. I love this series, I think Mercy Thompson is a strong independent woman, but not so much so that she is hard and unapproachable. I enjoyed the introduction of new characters to the series and look forward to seeing more of them in future books.

PinkieFairy (pinkifairy) This has been a rough reading year for me. I have completed a handful of books but over the last month I have also started and not been able to get through a stack of books. Thankfully it was books that i borrowed through Overdrive. At the moment I am reading Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children (Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children, #1) by Ransom Riggs . I have been dragging through it too but I just saw the preview for the movie and it gives me hope that the book will get better
