The Blood

The Blood (Morpheus Road, #3)The Blood by D.J. MacHale
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love the way D.J. MacHale writes. He sucks you in, grabs hold of your emotions and doesn't let go until you finally see the words "The End."  As a huge fan of his Pendragon series (I even read the three prequels which were not written by MacHale) I picked up Morpheus Road: The Light when it was first released, but kept pushing it back on my TBR list. Now I'm glad I did because I didn't have to wait for the sequels to be released to continue the story; I read all three books back-to-back. Great series and, although much shorter than Pendragon's ten book series, I found it to be just as action-filled and exciting.  It's a little dark but very kid-friendly and the way The Light and The Black interlock is pure genius. If you're going to start reading Morpheus Road, you may as well pick up all three at once. I guarantee you won't want to stop after the first one!!

Confessions of a Shopaholic

Confessions of a Shopaholic (Shopaholic, #1)Confessions of a Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Ok, first off, you can't take this book too seriously. Becky is admittedly annoying and careless. But the book is hilarious, easy reading, mindless fun. And sometimes it's nice to escape to someone else's problems every once in a while, even if her problems are self-inflicted. I laughed a lot throughout this book. And quite frankly, I liked Becky even though she doesn't make the best choices. I have the next Confessions book in the queue for the next time I need a quick, light-hearted read. And with the way things are going in the world these days, that time may be coming soon. :)
