Book Post Jan 18-25

Books I've read in the past week:
Endurance by S.L. Viehl
Shockball by S.L. Viehl
Eternity Row by S.L. Viehl

These are the 3rd-5th installments of her Stardoc series.  These books are a bit less lighthearted than their predecessors but they still carry on the same charm that originally caught my eye.  Each book has a new medical and moral dilemma for the main character to work through and she doesn't always do so gracefully.

Melting Stones by Tamora Pierce

This audio book converted to print is a nice easy read from an old favorite young adult writer.  Melting Stones follows the young stone mage Evvy (discover by Briar in Street Magic) and Dedicate Rosethorn on a trip to discover what is killing the trees around an island village.  

One for the Money by Janet Evanovich
Two for the Dough by Janet Evanovich

I've had this book series recommended to me many times but am just now getting around to reading it.  The main character, Stephanie Plum, is simply put hilarious.  Well written and easy to identify with, it is a joy to see what trouble she gets herself into and what lengths her target/reluctant partner has to go to get her out of.  I found these books to be quick reads and full of laughs.

Way of the Shadows by Brent Weeks

Quite a bit darker than the other books I read this week. Way of the Shadows follows a street kid as he apprentices himself to the best assassin in city and navigates his way through a warren of magic and betrayal.
