The Wolf Gift - Anne Rice

I was really excited about this because I love Anne Rice (having read her books all throughout middle school and high school) and I also love werewolves. It took me awhile to get through because some parts really dragged with not a lot happening or it was just more of the same. But it's an interesting enough take on werewolves and I will check out the sequel(s) eventually.

Your Magical Cat: Feline Magic, Lore, and Worship

Your Magickal Cat: Feline Magick, Lore, and Worship - Gerina Dunwich I couldn't finish this book. My first sign should have been when in the preface the author mentioned leaving behind her 13 cats when she moved from New York to California. I couldn't imagine given up my pet just because I was moving. I tried to put that aside and kept reading. In the Cat Magick chapter, she writes that some of the spells were from olden and times and not meant to be used. Turns out most of the chapter was disturbing spells of the past. There might be some interesting things about cats in this book, but all the talk of cat abuse from "olden times" didn't exactly motivate me to keep reading.
Mixed Vegetables, Vol. 1 - Ayumi Komura, Stephanie V.W. Lucianovic The first volume was very cute! The art is really nice too. I will definitely continue reading/get the rest and see how this goes.
Hollywood Is like High School with Money - Zoey Dean I got this book because I wanted something light and fun and I recently moved to Los Angeles myself. I've never read any of Zoey Dean's other books, but it was well written and entertaining. Predictable and a litte bit too far fetched at times, but still a fun read.
Stupid California: Idiots in the Golden State - Leland Gregory funny

Shadow of Heaven: Scotland from Above

Shadow Of Heaven: Scotland From Above - Patricia MacDonald Loved how some of the photographs looked like paintings
The Hunger Games  - Suzanne  Collins This was a fantastic read. I went in not knowing much about it, except that it was popular and I should give it a chance. I'm glad I finally did because it did not disappoint. I can't wait to read the rest of the series!
Never Let Me Go - Kazuo Ishiguro interesting book, but it took ages to really grab me.
Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict - Laurie Viera Rigler The main character was so whiny and annoying it made it really hard to enjoy the book. To the point where I couldn't even finish it.
Knit One, Kill Two - Maggie Sefton Pure fluff, but I didn't expect much so it was still a fun read. The only thing that bothered was the pace that Kelly learned to knit and with plans to jump right in on a big project. It was enjoyable though and I'll check out the rest of the series.
