Next in the queue

You’ve got to have some back up books, right? So you know what you’re going to read next when you’re done with what you’re currently reading. Because what would you do without a queue? It would be chaos. “Dogs and cats, living together—mass hysteria!” So let’s add some to your queue, or at least I’ll tell you what’s in mine.
The Last Werewolf by Glen Duncan. The last werewolf is so depressed he’s alone so he decides to kill himself, but some secret agency is out to make sure that doesn’t happen. The book got really good reviews.

The Magician King by Lev Grossman. This is a sequel to an awesome book The Magicians about a young man who realizes he is a wizard. Sounds like Harry Potter, right? Well I think Grossman plays off that, but it’s definitely different and unique. Can’t wait to read the sequel.

The Infernals by John Connolly. I read Connolly’s Book of Lost Things a few years ago. It had hints of C.S. Lewis’s Chronicles of Narnia, but a little darker. His latest book is about a boy and his dog and is a sequel to The Gates which is now also in my queue. See how things just kind of add up?

Just as I was walking in today I noticed that Gregory Maguire has a new book about Oz. It’s called Out of Oz and is supposedly the final volume in the Wicked Years. Maguire started it all with Wicked, then moved on to Son of a Witch then A Lion Among Men. You should probably read through them from the beginning, and know that I struggled through some of it—a little boring. Yet my tendency to finish things is forcing me to read this one. Although the reviews did say this will satisfy readers of the series, I hope it does at that.
So there you have it. A few books to ponder when pondering what to read next. Happy Reading!
