wow, no new posts yet this month

last night i finished my re-read of 'dead beat' i've noticed during this 2nd reading of all the dresden files novels & short stories, that the enjoyment and appreciation seems to increase with each successive book.
I've heard others say the same.

As for me, I'm currently reading Anne of Avonlea and The Island of Dr. Moreau. Then, I move on to book 3 in the Rachel Morgan series. Grave Peril comes after that, at which point I'll probably go ahead and buy book 4 of Dresden.

My plan is to continue with all 3 series until they're done, while adding in book club selections along the way. Dresden may take a little longer than usual since I have to buy them as I go.

I'm hoping to get a lot of reading done in December as I will probably skip the Classic for that month. It really will depend on what's nominated. I've been wanting to reintroduce myself to Dickens and I have 3 of his "Cheistmas" stories, so I may nominate one of them. I'll just have to wait and see where things are at that time.

Have you read the short stories? I'm incorporating those as well. Unfortunatly, they're not in a single book like the Dresden stories.

I recently finished Undead in the Garden of Good and Evil. It is a prequel about Ivy; very intense! It explains quite a bit.

I have a six-hour drive tomorrow, so I'll be listening to the Storm Front audiobook during the drive. I got to disc three last time, hopefully it'll last me the whole trip.

nope, didn't know about them, what are the titles/authors of the collections that they are in.

never heard of it, or maybe heard of it and ignored it as the term 'undead' is a negative for me. i know that's odd considering it's me.

Just got home... here are the Rachel Morgan short stories and the anthologies in which they are included:

Spoiler:

* Undead in the Garden of Good and Evil

A novella prequel centered on the character Ivy Tamwood, in Dates from Hell (April 1, 2006, ISBN 0-06-085409-X)—anthology with Kelley Armstrong, Lynsay Sands, and Lori Handeland.


* Two Ghosts for Sister Rachel

A novella prequel centered on the character Rachel Morgan in Holidays Are Hell (October 30, 2007, ISBN 978-0-06-123909-0)—anthology with Lynsay Sands, Marjorie M. Liu, and Vicki Pettersson.


* Dirty Magic

A short story centered around the banshee Mia in the anthology Hotter Than Hell. (June 24, 2008, ISBN 978-0061161292)—anthology with Lilith Saintcrow, Tanya Huff and others


* The Bridges of Eden Park

A short story included in the paperback edition of For a Few Demons More.


* The Bespelled

A short story about Ceri and Algaliarept, included in the paperback edition of The Outlaw Demon Wails.


* Ley Line Drifter

A short story focused on Hallows characters Jenks and Bis working together to solve a case in Unbound (August 25, 2009, ISBN 0061699934)—anthology with Melissa Marr, Jeaniene Frost, Vicki Pettersson, and Jocelynn Drake.


I've just realized that I read Undead in the Garden of Good and Evil out of order. I should have read it first. I'm trying to read the books in chronological order ( by publish date), which means I should have read Two Ghosts for Sister Rachel before starting book 2.

Oh well.

Edit:
Added spoilers tags to hopefully lessen confusion.

No worries! Very few people read over 100+ posts.

When I get home this evening I'll add links to the first post.

While I've only managed to finish book 4 (Summer Knight), I've found the writing to be increasingly enjoyable as the series comes along. Characters have become more rounded and the writing itself feels tighter.

Like Nyssa, I've got a big TBR pile to get through, so I'll probably not get to #5 (Death Masks) until somewhere near the end of this month.
