Jessica (covered_in_rust) | 27 comments I've been quiet, but I swear I'm still here....

Quick blurbs on certain books I've read for the challenge....

Agent to the Stars- John Scalzi

Liked this book. Different from other Scalzi books I've read and not my favorite, but I'm definitely glad I got to it. Scalzi is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. I also listened to this one on audio book with Wil Wheaton reading it. Cannot recommend any audio book read by WW enough.

Wicked Plants- Amy Stewart

And interesting book with a lot of information and anecdotes. I liked this one better than the one she did on alcoholic beverages.

The Undying King- Grace Draven

I got this one because I loved loved loved Draven's Radiance and I love retellings of Beauty and the Beast. I didn't love it. It was shorter and the two MCs here didn't have the time or chemistry that the ones in Radiance did. Will probably check out other longer stuff by this author.

Stranger Than Fanfiction- Chris Colfer

Not the best thing by Colfer but interesting nonetheless. A quick audiobook to get through read by the author. Love it when the author reads their own stuff.

My Lady's Choosing- Kitty Curran

This was cute and adorable like a lot of the Choose Your Own Adventures that have been released recently. I still like Romeo and/or Juliet better, but this was a fun way to kill a couple of hours.
