Dana (erato) That is one of my things to keep up with in November...the Inheritance series. I really like them and have listened to them all so far as audiobooks which I am quite glad I did. It was fun and everything is pronounced for you that way. :)

The final one in the series comes out on Nov 8th

Inheritance (Inheritance, #4) by Christopher Paolini ...yeah!

Zakiya LadyWings (zladywings) Yeah, I envy people w/the audiobooks of those.. Maybe my 'brary has them. Will have to look. Glad you like the series! They are one of my favorites.

Dawn (Kat N Hat) (katnhat) The library has it out for me I think! I had a bunch of books I had been on waiting list for and they all came at the same time! I have 15 books checked out and only half of them fit into this months challenges! I usually only read 10-11 books a month. I have a feeling some of these will go back to the library unread.

Bitten
Wolf at the Door
Second Grave on the Left
Adventures of an Ice Princess
Alterant
Born of Shadows

At Grave's End
Moon Called
Dead Iron
The Sookie Stackhouse Companion

Jacob

Don't feel bad I have at least 25 books checked out from my library at the moment with at least 10-12 holds at the moment.


Amy ~Lover of Books~ | 691 comments Finished Fury (The Fury Trilogy #1) by Elizabeth Miles this morning which wasn't as bad as some people were already saying about this book.

Going to start The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer (Mara Dyer, #1) by Michelle Hodkin in a little bit.

It's easy what to read next for me. The books that are due back first, can't renew them because other people have holds on it, or they are overdue and i can't renew it at my library.

Dawn (Kat N Hat) (katnhat) Working on Alterant (Belador, #2) by Sherrilyn Kenyon , I think I am fighting off a cold. Every time I sit down to read I get sleepy. The story needs to pick up to keep me awake.
