Since changing my degree program to a B.S. in Sociology, I have had to cram my schedule full of all sorts of major program requirements. One thing that may (or may not) lead me to go batshit insane (yes, I stole that from you, Suze) is the fact that this fall I will be taking four - count 'em, FOUR - sociology classes; three of them are advanced classes. I'm loving me some Sociology, but I'm not sure if I'm loving it all THAT much. So, if halfway through the semester I start spouting off sentencing concerning basic sociological theories, racial/ethnic studies, population theories and analyzing sociological research data, you'll know I've officially lost it and it's time to call the funny farm to come get me.
However, since those classes won't start until August, and summer classes won't start for another couple of weeks, in the mean time, I'll get ready to settle down with some good reads. Some new books coming out in the next few months I'm excited about reading are:
Blood Noir - Laurell K. Hamilton (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter series)
Brisingr - Christopher Paolini (Inheritance, Book 3)
Breaking Dawn - Stephenie Meyer (Twilight, Book 4)
Dragon Wytch - Yasmine Galenorn (Sisters of the Moon, Book 4)
Pride - Rachel Vincent (Werecats, Book 3)
As you can see, my reading preferences right now are heavy on the fantasy-in-the-modern-world theme. For me, these books are fun, fast reads that let me slip off somewhere far, far from my mundane life. They're a nice change from all the heavy reading I'll be doing later this fall, as well as the heavy studying I'll be doing this summer (classes in Spanish, Math and Speech). So, that's what I'm up to these days. What about you guys?
