April, 2020 - I think I'm going to shut From My Bookshelf down for a while; maybe for good. I've been putting this together for quite a few years now and it's starting to feel a bit more of a chore. I'll keep my Goodreads connected, but with the state of the world right now, I just want to read without worrying about making sure I post something about it. Who knows - when the world starts to make some semblance of sense again, I may start actively posting here again. Until then, as always, happy reading!

69. Fool Moon by Jim Butcher

Series: The Dresden Files, Book 2
Author: Jim Butcher
Copyright: 2001
Pages: 342
Format: Paperback
Rating: 4/5 stars

Werewolves and lycanthropes and loup-garou, oh my!

The full moon is bringing some grisly murders to Chicago, and the only one who can do anything about it is Harry Dresden! The second book in Jim Butcher's Dresden Files series, Fool Moon really doesn't let up on the thrills for the entire book. I found myself having to put the book down simply because of the amount of nonstop action. A good follow up to Storm Front, I'm really hoping the next book is just as well written, but paced a little slower.

If you are looking for a slower pace...you might want to look else where. It won't come to the Dresden-verse until White Night (book 9)...until then its like a stone rolling down hill...

they are fun reads though. you might want to also check out his Codex Alera. A bit more traditional fantasy...though not entirely.

I heard Butcher talk on the radio when his most recent book was published over hear and he sounded like someone I out to explore - oh dear, more for the pile!

The Dresden Files is one of my favorite book series. As Irish says, it's pretty much nonstop action in all the books (I haven't yet read White Night yet). I always feel so out of breath when I read one of Butcher's books. I do like Harry. :-)
