Today is the first day of the Gallagher Girls Read-a-thon, hosted by Books As You Know It. I am really excited to start at the beginning again. I’d Tell You I Love You, But Then I’d Have to Kill You will be me night-time read all week. What a fun way to end the day and a perfect way to spend the remaining days until the long-awaited final book…42 days and counting.
Smile by Raina Telegemeier is an awesome middle grade graphic novel. It got plenty of hype a while back and it was well-deserved. How My Summer Went Up in Flames by Jennifer Salvato Doktorski was the summer road trip book I was most looking forward to reading. Sadly, it was just kind of meh. Just Like Fate by Cat Patrick and Suzanne Young was a quick, fun read that reminded me of the choose your own adventure books that I loved as a kid. Add this to the long list of reviews I need to right…
The Secret Keeper by Kate Morton will be appearing on many Monday lists…it is 20 hours long! I am only a few chapters in, but I know this is going to be an awesome story. I also started Everybody Sees the Ants by A.S. King. I have read and love Please Ignore Vera Dietz and Ask The Passengers. I am half way through and it is just as wonderful.
Yeah, that’s right! I know all the right people and am so lucky to have an ARC of Emerald Green, the third book in the Ruby Red Trilogy by Kerstin Gier! Of course this means that I may not get around to quickly rereading Cinder. Oh well. I am still working my way through Monsters of Men by Patrick Ness. It is really long and heavy. Also, there is a new POV that is kind of throwing me off. It is so good, but I am just not flying through it like the others.
Last week I abandoned Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta. I was listening to the audio book and one of the discs just was not cooperating. I realized that I was not invested enough in the story to try to make it work or get the print copy. I may got back to it someday, but not right now.
