Dime Store Magic, by Kelley Armstrong; Shadow of the Hegemon, by Orson Scott Card; and Shadow Puppets, also by Orson Scott Card.
Saturday night I was awake until 3am finishing Dime Store Magic. Last night I was awake until 2am last night, finishing Shadow of the Hegemon. At 4am I was woken by the rain. Jack, my cat, work me at 6:30. Finally my alarm work me at 6:45. I spent the next twenty-five minutes hitting the snooze button evey five minutes until I finally gave up and crawled into the shower to wake me. It's a good thing I can get by with little sleep.
I started reading Shadow Puppets on the bus today and it looks to be as good as Shadow of the Hegemon. The shadow books are direct sequals to Ender's Shadow, which is a parallel novel to Ender's Game.
Dime Store Magic doesn't indicate it is a sequal, but it referred to events having occurred previously which I suspect to be in her earlier books featuring a different character. Unfortunately these references occurred enough to be noticible. This is her third book in her Women of the Otherworld series; from the excerpt, the fourth is a direct sequal while I'll borrow from the library.
My reading will slow down as I'm giving up the bus. I finally finished fixing my puncture last night, but wasn't in the mood for a rainy ride while getting over a cold. Tomorrow I have no excuse.
Tonight, as in as soon as I finish this, I'm off to grab tickets to The Chronicles of Riddick opening here on Thursday, and to get the ingredients for dinner tonight.
