Reading progress update: I've read 176 out of 316 pages.
Anna Dressed in Blood - Kendare Blake

I would like nothing more than to take the day off and spend it finishing this book. Unfortunately, I have a lot of work to do, so that isn't happening. Also, I have an appointment right after work. Ugh. I want to know how the spell goes, and why Anna isn't a normal ghost.

 

I have to chuckle a bit at some of the Anna/Cas stuff though. Anna has violet eyes (the mark of specialness!), Cas is the only living person she doesn't instantly get the urge to kill, and the way Cas has acted around her so far probably would have gotten him killed several times over with any other ghost but turns out just fine with Anna.

The Wild Robot - Peter Brown

Roz is now the accidental mother of a gosling, and it's giving me Horton Hatches the Egg vibes.

 

This started off as a robot trying to figure out how to survive in a realistic wilderness without human guidance. It has since morphed into a talking animal book, which disappoints me a little. I'm trying to adjust, but it's weird that a beaver is advising Roz on how to make her home more inviting to guests ("grow a garden!") and telling her she needs to find a way to heat her home before it gets colder.

The Wild Robot - Peter Brown

"The robot's programming stopped her from being violent, but nothing stopped her from being annoying."

 

Go, robot, go.

 

There's a sequel, or I would be much more worried about this being a tearjerker with a rusted, dead robot at the end. I don't think even 24 hours have passed since Roz was first booted up by curious otters, and she's already been caught in a mudslide and is currently being attacked by bears.

Mongrel - K.Z. Snow

I forgot to bring Anna Dressed in Blood with me, so I read a little of this during lunch.

 

I'm not sure this is going to work very well for me. There's already some insta-lust, although thankfully neither character has acted on it yet. One of them appears to already have a regular lover (I have to check some earlier wording, because I recall him thinking something about not having had sex in ages, which doesn't fit with the way he and his lover acted later on).

 

Well, it's short and it'll get me the Creepy Carnivals square when I'm done.

The Lemonade Crime: Lemonade Series, Book 2 (MP3 Book) - Jacqueline Davies,Suzy Jackson

Sunday morning turns out to be an excellent time to go to the gym. I got a good hour of "I actually don't feel too awkward" exercise in and managed to finish this audiobook while I was at it.

 

This qualifies for the Baker Street Irregulars square, although it wasn't as much of a mystery story as I was expecting it to be when I checked it out. Evan and his sister believe they know what happened to Evan's $208, but they can't prove it. Jessie attempts to bring the truth to light in a court of law created by her and the other kids in her fourth grade class, but it ends up blowing up in her and Evan's faces. The ending was surprisingly peaceful and friendly.
