CBRIII: Book#22: The Gathering by Kelley Armstrong

This is another young adult offering from Otherworld series author Kelley Armstrong. I really enjoy the Otherworld novels and I am waiting for the latest to be released so I can devour it. Until then, I've got the first novel in her Darkness Rising Trilogy.

CBRIII: Book #21: The Raising by Laura Kasischke

Believe it or not, I was introduced to this book by a women's magazine. Family Circle or Woman's Day, actually. Generally they recommend books that I can't even begin to have an interest in, but this time I was intrigued. This is an extremely well-written book.

CBRIII: Book#20: A Dirty Job by Christopher Moore

Alas, this is the last Christopher Moore book I had to read. I'm fairly sad about it, but this was a good book to end the run. It combines all of the humor, action, sweetness, and awesome that I've come to enjoy in Moore's novels while being something different than those before it. Yep.

CBRIII: Book#19: Bite Me by Christopher Moore

I have a soft spot (in my head) for Jody and Tommy, the focus of the Vampire Trilogy of Bloodsucking Fiends, You Suck, and Bite Me. They're two lonely kids that meet each other and immediately begin falling in love, even though vampire stuff and people trying to kill and separate them is happening all around. I really want these kids to make it and I really wanted to see their story through to the end. If you don't want to be spoiled about the first two books, then DON'T READ ANY FURTHER.

CBRIII: Book#18: The Stupidest Angel by Christopher Moore

If the last novel, Fluke, was my least favorite then The Stupidest Angel is my favorite. Maybe it's the recurring characters, the Christmas theme, or the undead walking the Earth. I know it's at least one of those things, if not all of them, that make this my favorite. I grinned while reading it, which is odd. But it is so much fun and so good!

CBRIII: Book#17: Fluke by Christopher Moore

This book is my least favorite of Moore's novels. That's not to say that this is a bad novel or poor story-telling or any other really negative slam on Moore or Fluke. It just wasn't my favorite.
