Out With A Bang Readathon: What I'm reading

I'm very excited to join in on my last Readathon of 2010, the Out With a Bang Readathon hosted by The Bookish Type. Check out her blog to sign up for the readathon and see what challenges and giveaways are going on.

The main purpose it to finish 2010 with a bang and get those last few books read. Since I'm working today but off tomorrow and Friday, I plan on reading a few books, but I'm not sure how many. On my list are the following:

Full Dark, No StarsFull Dark, No Stars by Stephen King
finishing the year with one of my all-time favorite writers

A new collection of four never-before-published stories from Stephen King.

The story opens with the confession of Wilfred James to the murder of his wife, Arlette, following their move to Hemingford, Nebraska onto land willed to Arlette by her father.

Big Driver
Mystery writer, Tess, has been supplementing her writing income for years by doing speaking engagements with no problems. But following a last-minute invitation to a book club 60 miles away, she takes a shortcut home with dire consequences.

Fair Extension
Harry Streeter, who is suffering from cancer, decides to make a deal with the devil but, as always, there is a price to pay.

A Good Marriage
Darcy Anderson learns more about her husband of over twenty years than she would have liked to know when she stumbles literally upon a box under a worktable in their garage.

Trickster's Girl (Raven Duet)Trickster's Girl by Hilari Bell
this comes out next week and I have it up for review

In the year 2098 America isn't so different from the USA of today. But, in a post-9/11 security-obssessed world, "secured" doesn't just refer to borders between countries, it also refer to borders between states. Teenagers still think they know everything, but there is no cure for cancer, as Kelsa knows first-hand from watching her father die.
The night Kelsa buries her father, a boy appears. He claims magic is responsible for the health of Earth, but  human damage disrupts its flow. The planet is dying.
Kelsa has the power to reverse the damage, but first she must accept that magic exists and see beyond her own pain in order to heal the planet.
Eggs in Purgatory (A Cackleberry Club Mystery)Eggs in Purgatory by Laura Childs
I read the latest in this series a few weeks ago and I got this one from the library so I could start from the beginning.

Suzanne, Toni, and Petra lose their husbands but find independence when they open the Cackleberry Club. Then their cozy cafe becomes the scene of a crime when a lawyer dies with a secret on his lips and egg on his face. What this all has to do with a religious cult and Suzanne’s past could put her own life on the line. 
I'm not sure what else, but that is a preview and it's subject to change in accordance with my whims :)
Happy readathon all!
