What have I been reading over the last week? Well, I finished Lighting the Dark Side by William R. Potter and posted a review here with a giveaway.

After that I chose the slim, and mostly enjoyable The Book of Proper Names by Amélie Nothomb which I finished last night but I'll say more about it when I review it this week.
As for my reading today...with all the talk about the Twilight movie (I really want to see it but I just found out it won't be coming to Japan until April 2009!), and after watching a few trailers and clips from it (again!) on YouTube, I could no longer resist and picked up New Moon by Stephenie Meyer. I read Twilight about a year ago and loved it, much to my surprise. A lot of people were less than enthusiastic about the other books in the series though so I found myself putting off reading the second book. Well, no more. I read the last chapter of Twilight again to refresh my memory, and then spent a couple of hours reading New Moon today. I'm about 200 pages in and so far so good. It's sucked me in and I hope I can fit in some extra time this week to read it.
