Bookworm, Bookworm

Other than Farmville, the tried and tested way to keep me quiet and entertained for hours is to give me a book. I'll read just about anything. I've been reading all the Wizard of Oz series, which I downloaded for free on the Iphone Stanza app. I know these are children's books, but they are well written and very imaginative. I have rather enjoyed reading them. Did you know there are 14 Oz books written by L. Frank Baum and countless others by various authors?

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz
The Marvelous Land of Oz
Ozma of Oz
Dorothy and the Wizard of Oz
The Road to Oz
The Emerald City of Oz
The Patchwork Girl of Oz
Tik-Tok of Oz
The Scarecrow of Oz
Rinkitink of Oz
The Lost Princess of Oz
The Tin Woodman of Oz
The Magic of Oz
Glinda of Oz

I read up to The Patchwork Girl of Oz and have decided to put the series aside in favor of reading the Anne of Green Gables Series. I know, I know another children's series, but seriously well written and highly entertaining. Did you know there are 8 books, plus an unfinished 9th book, that was published last year. 
Anne of Green Gables
Anne of Avonlea
Anne of the Island
Anne of Windy Poplars
Anne's House of Dreams
Anne of Ingleside
Rainbow Valley
Rilla of Ingleside
The Blythes are Quoted

In case you are worried, I have been reading some grown up books lately. I just finished Nora Roberts "Savour the Moment" which is part of her Bride Quartet series.

Vision in White
Bed of Roses
Savour the Moment
Happily Ever After (to be released Nov. 2010)

I've been enjoying the Southern Vampire Mysteries, although I was really disappointed with the most recent book. 
Dead Until Dark
Living Dead in Dallas
Club Dead
Dead to the World
Dead as a Doornail
Definitely Dead
All Together Dead
From Dead to Worse
Dead and Gone
A Touch of Dead
Dead in the Family

Lastly I've recently finished re-reading (for the millionth time) Wuthering Heights, which is my all-time most favorite book. 

So now you know.

  1. I love Anne of Green Gables! I'll admit though, I haven't actually read the books, but I have the whole series on DVD. There are two other series of "young adult" books that I just got hooked on. One is the Kingdom Keepers series by Ridley Pearson and the other is by Louise Rennison called Confessions of Georgia Nicolson. You should check them out.
