The Unreliable Poster

It isn't as if I haven't been reading since March. I just suck at updating my blog. Admittedly after the first reading of the Twilight series I didn't have much updating to do. I have read the series several times over and also listening to the audio books with the same frequency. I have definitely enjoyed the series.

Since the Twilight series I've read some random picks from the $3.99 bin at Hastings. I've re-read The Complete Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy with the exception of Young Zaphod Plays it Safe - I never could get into that one, but other than that Adams provides a wonderfully long escape! Also I've complete the Odd series by Koontz's and tried Mr. Murder and one other who's title I cannot recall. I've completed all the Southern Vampire books that have been released. This past week I read the first Dexter book by Jeffrey Lindsay.

It's funny because the Dexter series is amazing. While watching it I thought "What a charming serial killer!" In reading the first book I've realized how manipulated I've been by the character. What a convincing act Dexter puts forward. He's totally crazy! But also - it's a great book - the feelings that I experienced during the book were evidence of high-quality writing. I'm definitely going to pick up the other books in the series.

Now I am in the middle of I Am Legend by Richard Matheson. I've always loved a good post-apocalyptic book and this is no exception. I'm not even half through it, but I'm really liking it. I can see it being a favorite along side George R. Stewart's Earth Abides.

Okay well- that's all- I'm listening to the Deathly Hallows as read by Jim Dale at this moment and am missing quite a lot because I choose to type this entry at the same time.

If any one ever reads this blog I would love some suggestions as to what read next because I love new reading experiences.
