    I've wanted light and fluffy lately, so I've been moving through Karen Marie Moning's Fever series. It's not bad. Once she switched the focus a bit to Dani, they slowed down. I think I read that originally she ended the series, then started it up again. By the third in the re-start, I liked it again, and now I'm annoyed that I have to wait until January for the next one.

    I'm trying to find other light stuff for the very long travel day I've got coming up. It will be about 22 hours door to door and I don't sleep on airplanes, so I need stuff on which I don't have to concentrate much.

    I've read three of those and liked them.

    I read that series years ago and enjoyed it. If she's started writing more, I'll have to check it out.

    I think the original series had 5 books maybe? The newer books start out featuring Dani (the 14yo girl), but after the first book, we see a lot of Mac and Barrons again, too, and they move away from the Dani focus. I didn't love the first newer book (Iced), but enjoyed the second (Burned), though it was a very cliffhanger-y ending. The next one comes out in January, I believe.

    Today I am reading Reference and Information Services: An Introduction. School stuff.

    I finished A Casual Vacancy on Sunday. I thought it was well written, good characters, but I feel like the people I liked mostly had the saddest stories, while the assholes got off relatively scott free.

    I borrowed both Iced and Burned from the library last night. I'm excited to get started on them. :)

    I finished The Martian by Weir but haven't had time to read anything these past few days. GASP! I really really enjoyed it.

    You know I have to now . I read BHD because in reading books of other military endeavours that occurred later I kept hearing a variation of "we don't want another Somalia". I can see why they don't want another Somalia .
