Wolfsbane and Mistletoe: Charlaine Harris, Patricia Briggs and others. All short stories based on werewolves and holidays. Should be an excellent read.
The Gates by John Connolly. The gates to Hell are visible from the real world due to the miscalculations . Saving the world is all up to a young boy, Samuel Johnson, and I am sure there will be some crazy things happening.
The Magical Worlds of Harry Potter: A Treasury of Myths, Legends, and Fascinating Facts by David Colbert: I have been super into non-fiction stories (mainly about Harry Potter) lately. I'm really excited to read this one.
Muggles and Magic: J.K. Rowling and the Harry Potter Phenomenon by George Beahm. This goes along with the whole non-fiction thing above.
Pirate Latitudes by Michael Crichton. I've never read a Michael Crichton novel, but I am excited to start. This seems to be a pirates novel at its finest: adventure, atmosphere and action.
The Child Thief by Brom. I'm actually kind of scared to read this one. It is a twisted, adult version of 'Peter Pan' and even the cover creeps me out; however, the author worked with Tim Burton on 'Sleepy Hollow,' so I'm sure I'll like it. It's a pretty massive book, but I do have a lot of trips coming up soon!
Not pictured in this batch is: The End of Harry Potter? by David Langford because, well, I finished it already. It was so fun seeing which predictions he got right and which ones he got wrong for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
I just recently got a library card and I have definitely been using it to my advantage. I am in the middle of Grave Secret by Charlaine Harris right now, but i will be getting to these shortly.
