I actually did finish the Chunkster Challenge before the deadline, but between laptop problems and not having a heater in my library where my desktop is until last week, then Christmas, I didn't get around to posting a review until now.

The High King's Tomb by Kristen Britain: I've had issues with the first two books in the series, and this one gave me fits early on too. But I ended up liking it quite a bit. I think this series is a bit slow and I find the love triangle frustrating, but there's enough cool stuff going on to keep me reading. My favorite aspect of this book was all of the wizards gathering to figure out what was happening with the wall. (Sorry for lack of details, but I returned the book to the library and my memory sucks).  I also loved when Karigan pretended to be a ghost in the tombs. I really like Karigan and I want things to work out well for her in the end.

Fullmetal Alchemist Vol. 11 by Hiromu Arakawa: The more different this becomes from the anime, the more I enjoy it. I can't wait to find out what happens next.

Bleach Vols. 5 & 6 by Tite Kubo: This manga is so entertaining and funny and I'm really enjoying it. I love that Mr. Hat-and-Clogs is best friends with a talking cat! It's weird that I've only read 6 volumes of the manga and I'm already nearly caught up to what's going on with the anime.

Green Rider by Kristen Britain: I liked this book and I didn't have any major problems with it. I liked Karigan and the world was neat. It reminded me a bit of Lackey's Velgarth books and that's exactly what I'm in the mood for right now (I'm reading a Velgarth book now, in fact). I'm looking forward to reading book two next month and book three is supposed to come out in the fall, so I'm excited about that.
