Happy (belated) new year!!

Sorry that it's been ages since I last posted, but I've gone through a lot since my last post. I got a job but was then fired just before New Year's...which sucked hardcore, but I'm dealing with it in my own special way. By which I mean that I've spent most of my time at home watching tv and reading books. Speaking of books, I counted and I have just under 200 books, which is slightly frightening because I have limited space in my home for all of them. My favorite books recently have been the first two books in the Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare: City of Bones and City of Ashes, as well as The White Queen by Philippa Gregory. They are amazing books in their own ways. The Mortal Instruments series is geared mainly towards teens, but are amazingly well written. They are more complex than what one would expect from a teen series. And "The White Queen" is, like most of Philippa Gregory's books, simply wonderful, in the way she combines historical figures, places and events with the creations from her own imagination.
