Reading List 2008: My list so far

The Start of the book list


6. Artemis Fowl and the Time Paradox by Eoin Colfer -
the last in the Artemis Fowl series yet not as good as the rest. I was really glad to hear that Eoin Colfer had released another Artemis Fowl book but I was disappointed. It was still good, and had that great sense of humour that I love in Colfer's book but I felt Artemis' character wasn't as witty and engaging as he usually is and the slight bit of Artemis/Holly romance felt out of context. However it was still an enjoyable read and I really reccomend the Artemis Fowl series, even if it is a children's book.

7. The Santaland Diaries by David Sedaris - The title story in this short collection of 6 is by far the best of the bunch. It's hilarious in true Sedaris style and had me laughing at his antics as an elf in Macy's at Christmas. The other five weren't what I expected. Only one other was actually autobiographical. They were less humourous and more ironic yet they were very good at making comments about society (another thing Sedaris does quite well). If you have read and enjoyed Sedaris' other work then I reccomend it but if you're knew to his stuff then I suggest one of his other works.

I started reading 'American Psycho' but I couldn't get into it, I will probably go back to it though. I'm currently reading 'Luck in the Shadows'  by Lynn Flewelling. Anyone ever read it?
