Books by the Bed - February 2006

Following on from January's Books by the Bed post, I did do as I suggested and actually cleaned up, so in theory we started with a clean slate for February! And yet.....

A Prayer for Owen Meaney by John Irving - still there. I got about two chapters into it (and those are really l-o-n-g chapters), but the story didn't grab me at all. I have however heard such good things about it, that I still really want to read it!

Painted by the Sun by Elizabeth Grayson - A new addition, Elizabeth Grayson is author of the month in the Historical Romance Chat group that I a member of.

The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simons - This book actually did go back on the shelves for a little while, but not for long. I am supposed to be doing a group reread on this, one chapter a week, with some of the other members at Paullina Simons forum, so expect this one to be hanging around for while. Not that I's a great book.

The Last Battle by CS Lewis - the last book in the Chronicles of Narnia. I was supposed to have finished this by the end of January. Oh well..I'll get to it eventually!

You'll notice that A Breath of Snow and Ashes is no longer there, and no, I haven't finished it. In the comments to the January post, Carolyn wrote:

I noticed your comment about Breath of Snow and Ashes- I'm curious to hear what you think when you're finished! I read the book because I've been devoted to the rest of the series, but this one just didn't capture me the way that the others have.

Carolyn, I think it is fair to say that I haven't been captured either!! I read all of the others in two or three days at the most, and couldn't put them down, but with this one I am just not all that inspired to pick it up! I will eventually, but I don't know when!
