No, seriously. For some reason I cannot account for how I spent most of my time last week. I know I went to work and I managed to get things in order for Easter, but other than that, last week is a big mystery. Begin stuck in a time warp seems like a reasonable explanation for why I did not finish a single book last week! I mean, really? Goodreads.com is gleefully pointing out that I am 7 books behind. SEVEN!?!? Ugh. It’s not for a lack of trying (I am currently working on six books). Really, it’s got to be the stinkin’ time warp. No matter. It’s a new month, one with a readathon, and I am going to get caught up. Also, I may have slightly exaggerated my claim. I did actually finish one book, but it was a juvenile graphic novel that was read in one sitting. I guess it counts, but just barely.
My Monday post of shame:
Be sure to check in with Book Journey and Teach Mentor Texts for more reading lists!
Poor Chickenhare by Chris Grine, it must be lonely on the Finished list! This was strange little juvenile graphic novel about a chickenhare and his friend Abe, the bearded turtle and their adventure escaping from an insane taxidermist.
Still working on:
I cannot believe that I haven’t finished Clockwork Princess! I have one disc left in Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan. I am really enjoying this one. Little Women and Lost Stories are starting to drive me crazy. The time has come for me to stop putzing around with them and just commit to finishing them both. Ashfall is my exercise book and I intend to get back on the elliptical ASAP this week. If I do not finish Insomnia this week I will not have an ARC to review, ending my streak of one ARC review a week since the beginning of the year. I can’t let that happen!
I am not sure what I will start once I finish all of these books. I know I would like to read some poetry in honor of National Poetry Month, but I really struggle with poetry. So, please send me your recommendations! What book of poetry would you give to the reader who claims to not enjoy poetry?
