Books

Last Supper by Charles McCarry – This goes into great detail about the background of McCarry’s master spy Paul Christopher.
Amazing Grace by by Megan Shull – I read this for my YA book group. It was a cute chick-lit style novel about a teen tennis sensation dropping out and living a normal life, but I thought the ending was very rushed.
Dark Moon Defender by Sharon Shinn – After reading three of the Twelve Houses series, I was a little disappointed to get to the end of this book to see that there was no progression with the threatened civil war that keeps looming over the characters. I wonder if it will be addressed in the fourth book, Reader and Raelynx.
The Prestige by Christopher Priest – Now I understand why people who read the book were commenting about the movie ending.

Manga

Boys Over Flowers #22

Basara #22 – So this had a plot twist that took me by surprise. I wasn’t shocked that Shuri decided to fight for Tatara, but in the process he loses his arms? He’s the Red King because his cloak is stained with his own blood?! Yikes!
