What You Should Read

December 5, 2012

 

I know, I promised I’d do these weekly.  I lied.  I do that.  But I hope you will find it in your internet-y hearts to forgive me.  But, I’m back with a new book (really a series) that I demand you read!  I’ll be doing more in-depth reviews of the entire series later since I’ve devoured all of them this year.  I blame my friend Kelly.  She got me hooked.

Thounded-cover-184x300he series is the Iron Druid Chronicles by Kevin Hearne.

Atticus O’Sullivan is the last druid left in the world.  He is over 2,000 years old, but he looks 21.  He owns an occult bookstore, an Irish wolfhound, a magical sword, and a vendetta from a Celtic god.  That’s what you need to know to get started.  After that, things get complicated.

I started this series in August and I’m on the fourth book now.  I’ve already bought the fifth book.  Amusingly enough, I actually met the author over a year ago at LepreCon in Tempe, AZ.  I’d made a mental note to pick up his first book, but since my brain is incredibly cluttered I forgot.  So I’m late to the party, but I’ve got five books to read instead of just one, so that’s kind of awesome.

 

In other news, I’m now at 57,000 words on my NaNoWriMo project.  I’m hoping to be finished by the end of the year.
