Lee Hey everyone! I know 2016 is half-way over by now (say whaat?!) but I do love sharing what I read.

So far I've read 17 books and most of them were good!

1) I am Haunted: Living Life Through The Dead by Zak Bagans, Kelly Crigger
(I love Ghost Adventures and loved reading about Zak's personal experiences)

2) Waiter Rant: Thanks for the Tip – Confessions of a Cynical Waiter by Steve Dublanica
(My sister was a server for many years, so a handful of secrets I knew about, but the rest I never would have thought of!)

3) Nickel and Dimed: On (Not) Getting By In America by Barbara Ehrenreich
(Hated this book! I thought the author was so snotty about having to experience living like the working poor. Grow up and humble yourself.)

4) How to Read Literature Like a Professor: A Lively and Entertaining Guide to Reading Between the Lines by Thomas C. Foster
(If I'd know this book was about symbolism, I never would have read it.)

5) Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame-Smith
(I really liked this book! It had a good pace and was fun.)

6) Shadow Divers: The True Adventure of Two Americans Who Risked Everything to Solve One of the Last Mysteries of World War II by Robert Kurson
(It took me a while to finish this one but, even though I know squat about scuba diving, it was really interesting)

7) Life of Pi by Yann Martel
(Personally, this was one of those books that made me question why it was so popular. Didn't really get it.)

8) The Catswold Portal by Shirley Rousseau Murphy
(A fun mix of fantasy blending with reality.)

9) The Witching Hour (Lives of the Mayfair Witches, Book 1) by Anne Rice
(Kinda meh. Super slow pace.)

10) Everland by Wendy Spinale
(A fun take on Peter Pan!)

11) The World According To Bob: The Further Adventures of One Man and His Streetwise Cat by James Bowen
(Love this cat! I had to get used to the complete London phrases, but it was good!)

12) Lasher (Lives of the Mayfair Witches, Book 2) by Anne Rice
(Better than the first, but still okay)

13) Taltos (Lives of the Mayfair Witches, Book 3) by Anne Rice
(This one I liked. I was more interested in hearing about the Taltos than I was about the Mayfair family.)

14) My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, Jodi Meadows
(It was cute. Writing was not my style but the story itself was cute.)

15) Blue Is For Nightmares (Blue Is For Nightmares, Book 1) by Laurie Faria Stolarz
(A good first book. Interesting enough to keep going)

16) White Is For Magic (Blue Is For Nightmares, Book 2) by Laurie Faria Stolarz
(Liked this one better than the first!)

17) Silver Is For Secrets (Blue Is For Nightmares, Book 3) by Laurie Faria Stolarz
(This one was a little annoying. It felt very frustrating for all of the characters.)

And I'm sure I'll update throughout the year!
