Twisted



Twisted, by Jeffery Deaver

This is another Jeffery Deaver book, but this one is a collection of short stories instead of a novel. I don't read them often, but now and then short stories are quite enjoyable! They tend to make especially good bathroom reading. It's fun to have something short, but interesting to read. Doesn't require as much investment as a full novel.

These all had some kind of plot twist in them, although really all mystery stories ought to have plot twists! Some of these were really interesting. Some were expected, but some of them caught me completely by surprise.

The Reptile Room



The Reptile Room (A Series of Unfortunate Events, Book 2), by Lemony Snicket

This would be book number two in the Series of Unfortunate Events series of books by one Mr. Lemony Snicket.

I'm kind of disappointed that I saw the movie before I read these. I think I'd like the books a lot more if I didn't know what was going to happen. But I think the movie only covers books 1-3 so maybe once I hit book 4 I'll really like them. Not that I don't like them now, I just think they'd be more entertaining if I didn't know what I know. (does that make any sense at all?)

I am curious if Mr. Poe will ever start believing the kids when they tell him something instead of constantly dismissing them. And is Olaf the villain in all the books or just the first couple? I'm thinking that he is, seems too good a villain to have him killed or captured or anything like that.

In any event, next time I'm somewhere with books I'm going to have to pick up book number 3!

The Death of Sleep



Death of Sleep, by Anne McCaffrey

This would be another Anne McCaffrey book. (Can you tell I like her?) My copy of it is actually in a three-in-one book that has two other books from the same series in it. Just finished part one last night. It's a tad drier than most of her books, but I still enjoyed it and read the whole thing in just slightly more than a week.

Right now I mostly want to start the second book 'cuz I want to know what happens to Lunzie! It's just not nice to end a book on a cliff-hanger!
