This week I have been all over the place in my reading.
I finished Wildflower by Drew Barrymore.
I have loved Drew Barrymore for YEARS and this book further cemented that. She writes from the heart and is just someone so very likable. I wish she were my best friend. Highly recommend. It was a very different book than other celebrity autobiographies I have read this year. It wasn't as laugh out loud funny as Bossypants or Yes Please, but I did laugh quite a few times. It wasn't as serious as Troublemaker, though there were quite a few serious passages, and it was just way better than Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me (I did not really like that book at all).
I have also been reading a Lucas Davenport novel; Invisible Prey by John Sandford. I've read a few of these books and they are always a good pick when I am in-between novels and something that I can come back to when a book I've been waiting for becomes available.
I've also been reading a series that only recently came on my radar. The Paper Magician by Charlie N. Holmberg.
This is the first book in a trilogy which includes The Glass Magician (Book 2) and The Master Magician (Book 3).
I just finished chapter 4 and expect that over the Christmas Holiday (I am off for 4 days) I will finish book 1 and probably book 2. It's an interesting story and I am really enjoying the dynamic between Ceony and Thane.
What are you reading? Have you read The Paper Magician trilogy?

For the 12th consecutive year the #TampaTrio will be heading to the GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH! Of course I am referring to The Ringling Bros Circus.
The Legends Tour will be in Tampa January 6-10, 2016.
Our family LOVES the circus. Here is James and Ronin at the 2011 show.
And the girls at the 2008 show. They were so little!!
The circus ALWAYS has come to Tampa right around Haley's birthday and this year will be no different. She'll be turning 12 on January 5, 2016 and we're heading to the show ... [More]

I haven't blogged about my current reads in over a month!! And I've certainly read a lot over the past 34 days.
Since my last post November 6, I've read:
Magnus Chase and the Sword of Summer
The Night Circus
Serafina and the Black Cloak
and I'm currently reading Wildflower by Drew Barrymore. I love it when audio books are narrated by the author.
I also read quite a bit of Norse Mythology to help Haley with her National History Day project.
Of all the books I read th... [More]
