Bout of Books – Day 7

May 19, 2013

I’ll do a final wrap up tomorrow, but I think I’m going to total out at 7 books started and a slightly different 6 finished.  So, that’s pretty much right between my realistic goal and my shoot for the stars goal.   I’m pretty pleased about that.  I’m also going to take part in the last challenge for this Bout of Books.  Snarky Bird, Uber Nerd has a great challenge for today.

If You Like ____, Then You’ll Enjoy _____.

I love this kind of thing!  I occasionally make little shelf talkers for work with this very set up so it’s a fantastic challenge for me.  I’m going to go a little crazy I’m afraid.woods

If you liked Gone Girl then you’ll really enjoy In the Woods by Tana French.

Let’s say you like Harry Potter, but you’re more into a Regency ballroom ala Jane Austen than the frontier life of Laura Ingles Wilder.  That’s ok.  I’ve got a ton of things for that!  Mary Robinette Kowal’s Shades of Milk and Honey, Patricia Wrede & Caroline Stevermere’s kat1

Sorcery & Cecelia, and Stephanie Burgis’s Kat, Incorrigible are all books you’d love!

If you like Nora Roberts and action movies, you’ll love Agnes and the Hitman by Jennifer Crusie and Bob Mayer.

Hopefully, some of these will tickle your fancy.  Now, my progress report:
