What did I finish reading?

Anansi Boys by Neil Gaiman 5/5 (review)
      A whimsical, complicated and fantastical story of finding yourself in others. This audiobook was amazing and I hope to find and read the book again.

Mr. Monk is Cleaned Out (Mr. Monk #10) by Lee Goldberg 4/5 (review)
     A very entertaining read that combined wit, mystery, politics and economical woes in a little box with a polished... Monk polished... bow.

What am I currently reading?

The Iron Butterfly (The Iron Butterfly #1) by Chanda Hahn
      72% done. I bought for the cover and because I found this for free on amazon (and I believe as of this post that it still free... in ebook form of course) and after getting tired of reading The Casual Vacancy, just flipped to this on my kindle and started reading. I'm glad I did! I'm really enjoying the storyline and I've stayed up nights wanting to read more. For me this is enlightening because I have hundreds of books on my Kindle that I've gotten for free, yet I haven't had the time to read any of them. I'm very pleased to see that just because a book is offered free on amazon, doesn't mean it's garbage. I should finish it by tonight/tomorrow morning.

Infinite Days (Vampire Queen #1) by Rebecca Maizel
      36% done. As I've previously said in another post, I wanted to read this book because I have a galley of Stolen Nights (Vampire Queen #2) to get through, and I figure I should read the first book before that. I could only find the audiobook in short notice, and I'm quite enjoying it! I've gotten use to the narrator, Justine Eyre's, voice as I figure that is the way a 500+ year old vampire would indeed talk, and I'm liking the storyline so far. I'm not far enough in it to see any rise in the plot line (so far Lenah's been turned back into a mortal and is still learning the ropes of living and feeling like a normal 16 year old girl,) but I see promise. I'm looking forward to finishing this book and immediately starting on the next, which is a lot more than I can say for...

The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling
      102 out of 512 pgs. (20%) done. I've decided to put this one back on the shelf for a little while (a very little while. I know, I know, I've done the same to Mockingjay audiobook and A Dance with Dragons, but I promise I'll finish those soon as well.) As I've been reading this book all I can think is, "Oh gosh, now how many pages do I have left?" and counting down from there. It's not like the book's completely bad or anything, actually I really love the writing style, it's just not my genre per se (I don't like politics.) Well... there's not really much politic in it at this point either, so that can't be it... perhaps it too overly descriptive when it journalizes every single person and their whereabouts and habits. I don't feel like the plot is moving along towards anything. The only real interesting thing that I've found so far is wanting to know what Barry Fairbrother and Dr. Parminder's relationship really was, and what the secret is with Fats and his family.

What am I planning on reading next?

Stolen Nights (Vampire Queen #2) by Rebecca Maizel
      From NetGalley. I'm currently listening to the first book and loving it, can't wait to get to this one!

The Madness Underneath (Shades of London #2) by Maureen Johnson
      I recently read The Name of the Star (Shades of London #1) because I had this galley. I liked the first book, so of course I'm looking forward to getting to this book as well.

The Kingmaker's Daughter by Philippa Gregory
      I've had this on my to-read list since it came out. I've never read this author's work before, but I love historical fiction so I couldn't resist when I saw this in the library.
