From the Library 10/17

From the Library is my Saturday listing of what I checked out from the library this week.

Drowned Wednesday (audio) -  Garth Nix, read by Allan Corduner (Grim Tuesday didn't come it yet *sadness*)

Everyone is after Arthur Penhaligon. Strange pirates. Shadowy creatures. And Drowned Wednesday, whose gluttony threatens both her world and Arthur's. With his unlimited imagination and thrilling storytelling, Garth Nix has created a character and a world that become even more compelling with each book. As Arthur gets closer to the heart of his quest, the suspense and mystery grow more and more intense. . .

The Mermaid's Madness - Jim C. Hines (Yes! I've been waiting for this since The Stepsister Scheme)

What would happen if a star writer went back to the darker themes of the original fairy tales for plots, and then crossed the Disney princesses with Charlie's Angels? What he'd end up with is The Mermaid's Madness-a whole new take on The Little Mermaid. And with Jim C. Hines, of Jig the Goblin fame, penning the tale, you can
bet it won't be "They lived happily ever after."


  1. Can you read Wednesday before Tuesday??? :) I've really got to try this series.

  2. It is best to read them in order. But it took a while for the library to get me Tuesday.
