Hi everyone! Happy Monday…zzzzzzzzzzzzz. Week one with the new pup was long and exhausting and with reading being pushed way down to the bottom of the list. The fact that I proctored a practice ACT test on Saturday really helped by reading stats this week. It was kind of nice to spend three hours reading-and get paid for it! Contrary to what many people believe about my job, I do not actually get paid to read books. That is my dream job! Anyway. The synapses aren’t firing at full speed yet so let me just make a list and be done.
It’s not much, but I loved them all. When She Woke is a clever and thought-provoking retelling of the The Scarlet Letter. Full of hot-button topics such as religion, abortion, and homosexuality, it may not be for everyone, but I loved it. The graphic version of L. Frank Baum’s The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by Eric Shanower has inspired a book craft! The illustrations are so amazing that I want them on display in my house. I plan to disassemble a perfectly good book! Finally, I breezed through an ARC of Revenge of the Girl With the Great Personality by Elizabeth Eulberg. I will have a review up this week, but take my word for it now, you’ll want to pick this one up.
Seraphina by Rachel Hartman is my new audio. The beginning seems a bit complicated, but I am starting to get into it now. I am so excited to be reading an ARC of Scarlet by Marissa Meyer. I loved Cinder and I think this sequel may be even more awesome. Can that be possible?!? I am still plugging away at The Emperor of Nihon-Ja by John Flanagan. I am in no hurry with this one. I just started an ARC of Prisoner B-3087 by Alan Gratz.
I am looking forward to another visit to Eric Shanower’s version of Oz! I also think I should get a 2013 debut in before January is over. I am looking forward to Lenore Appelhan’s Level 2.
What are you reading this week?
