The wedding was overwhelming. I started and quit several books because I simply didn't have the energy to put into really getting into them. Gavin and I had grand plans to read books together while he was in Vegas and also on our honeymoon, but none of them really worked out. However, since I've been back, I've been very excited to get back to some of the books I've been looking forward to.

One of them was Spook: Science Tackles the Afterlife by Mary Roach.

I enjoyed both of her other books and had put off reading this one because it's the last book currently available. Her books are basically a comical summary of all of the bizarre science research on several fringe subjects. The reader for this book got a bit overdone with the accents, but I still enjoyed it and finished it in three days. I noticed she has another book due out this year, so at least I have something to look forward to!.

In other disappointing literary news, I started the Fire and Ice Series by George R. R. Martin. The series itself is not disappointing at all. It's disappointing because the series isn't compete! I very much wish I had waited before starting the books. The worst part is there seems to be little progress towards completing the seven book series. I blame Jerrod almost entirely for beginning the books in the first place!
