Books

#40: Orcs by Stan Nicholls is a wow-breathtaking saga to read. I was really impressed by the sweeping military storyline, the “feel” of the setting and the story, and the journey the orcs were on. I was not impressed by the last 10 pages of the book, but that’s neither here nor there– I forgive denouements when the rest of the book is really good.

#41: Dungeons & Dragons 4th edition Dungeon Masters Guide. Erm. I found a D&D group. Need I say more?

#42:
The Ideal Wife by Mary Balogh… cute Regency romance.

#43:

Much Ado About You by Eloisa James– one of my favorite Regency romance writers. This one is the first of the Essex sisters romances (I’ve read 2 others).

#44:

The Island of Lost Maps by Miles Harvey. Geography buff that I am, when I saw this in a bookstore in New Haven, CT, I immediately added it to my to-read pile. Very good book on cartographic crimes– particularly the stealing of old and rare maps.

#45: The Enchanted Moment by Barbara Cartland.Erm. Post-WWII England romance novel which was not one of the best love stories I’ve ever read. Cartland doesn’t usually disappoint, but I felt there was something infinitely lacking in this one.

#46:

The Eyes of the Dragon by Stephen King. I read this when I was about 14 years old and staying at my aunt’s apartment because a sprained ankle was keeping me from summer camp. I loved it then, and I love it still. I thought to myself “Oh, maybe the story was more simplistic than I remember,” and I was right– there is a lot of fore-telling in this novel. But oh, my– after reading the Dark Tower series and then coming back to The Eyes of the Dragon, I was just floored.

Movies

#13: The Men Who Stare at Goats – amusing and fun.

#14: The A Team – we will buy this on DVD, it was so awesome.
