Well, today is Easter Sunday in our household so a jelly bean issue it is. 🙂 I bought the jelly beans for my husband but since he doesn’t like them (Yes, I knew that when I bought them. He he he…) I’m going to sit here and munch on them while I write.
The round up this week:
Daughters of the Witching Hill by Mary Sharratt
The Tale of Halcyon Crane by Wendy Webb
And the March monthly wrap-up:
The Far Traveler: Voyages of a Viking Woman by Nancy Marie Brown
Isis: A Tale of the Supernatural by Douglas Clegg
Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins
The Kingmaking by Helen Hollick
The Thief by Megan Whalen Turner
The Creation of Eve by Lynn Cullen
The Two Towers by J.R.R. Tolkien
Disquiet by Julia Leigh
Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel
White is for Witching by Helen Oyeyemi – DNF
Oddly, March brought along my first DNF for 2010. Guess there had to be a first. Overall, I was pretty surprised by all I read in March considering a few of the books were chunksters.
I finished The Tale of Halcyon Crane this afternoon and, while I was a tad skeptical, (It’s categorized as a horror and it’s not usually the type of book I get in to.) it sucked me in and didn’t let me go until I got to the last page. Than again, I’ve been reading a TON of historical fiction lately and I think I needed something set in my own time frame to get back in my reading groove. I’ll do a review in a few weeks so I won’t say too much more about it today.
Earlier this week I piled up my TBRs and found I have a good bit of reading for April. A lot more historical fiction (I keep promising myself I will add something contemporary…) and of course one book I’m really looking forward to — The Return of the King by J.R.R. Tolkien. The is the last month for the LOTR Read-Along and I’m so looking forward to the last book. Sometime this week I’ll put together my final thoughts for The Two Towers and my initial thoughts for The Return of the King.
Well, I’m calling it a wrap. The chocolate bunny ears are calling. Does anyone out there like the red jelly beans? I don’t eat them and I seem to have a lot of them left…
Happy Sunday. 🙂

Love the red ones. Yellow ones, too. Actually, any color. Well, not black. No one likes those.
You read some good books this quarter! 🙂 I’m firmly in the ‘jelly beans are gross’ camp, hehe.
