So, have you seen The Hunger Games movie yet? I saw it for the second time last night and enjoyed it just as much as the first time. There were some really good previews too. I definitely plan to see the new Avengers movie because 1. Thor and 2. It was filmed in my hometown of Cleveland. I can’t wait to see the familiar skyline on the big screen, even if it is getting blown up!
I didn’t get as much reading done in March as I did in January and February, but I did pick some fantastic books. I loved BZRK by Michael Grant, Out of Sight, Out of Time by Ally Carter, Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly, and The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson. I am all caught up on The Walking Dead graphic novel series and I am almost done with Y: Last Man by Bryan Vaughan. I am anxious for a big reveal! I only managed one book review and I failed to finish any of my ARCs, which I feel bad about. I guess this is an opportunity for improvement.
So, what am I working on during this first week of April (besides getting my house ready to host Easter)?
In my car: Okay for Now by Gary Schmidt. Here is a little something I am learning about myself. Crazy dystopian stuff does not faze me. I can handle the evil, violence, and horrors of the post-apocalyptic world, but realistic fiction really get to me. Doug’s father and brother really bother me. I am stressed out for the poor kid and his mom. I am very early in the story, so hopefully things will look up for him in the end.
The only book I am reading because it’s due this week and I can’t renew it: The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness. This one comes highly recommended and despite a bit of a slow start for me, I am really getting into it. The story is one big puzzle and the pieces are slowly falling into place. I am hooked.
The book that I desperately want this week: Black Heart by Holly Black. I want. I want. I want. Please.
I also started a new Playaway this weekend: The Lake of Dreams by Kim Edwards.
I have a lot to do this week, so I am not going to be overly ambitious. What are your plans for the week?
