151 books down, 60 days to go!

Starting to run out of time here...Justi again.  Four new books.  Ta da!

'A Wizard of Earthsea' and 'The Tombs of Atuan' are both part of the Earthsea series.  I'm working on reading them all.  Basically, a different world where magic is common, we meet Ged.  Or Sparrowhawk, as is his known name.  These books remind me of the Christopher Chant series I used to love...the writing is hard, but satisfying.
'The Silver Bowl' is about a girl who moves to work in a palace...and uncovers a secret about herself and a plot against the royal family.  Set in the past, filled with magic and a strong heroine, I thought this book was good, but the transitions between times were confusing.
Last, but not least, I just finished 'I Now Pronounce You Someone Else'.  Bronwyn is trying to figure out who she is...but when she gets engaged, how does her identity fit in?  A sweet story, it made me fall in love with the characters and the plot, and the ending is perfect.
