After participating in last week’s read-a-thon, I just knew that I would be on a reading roll. I fantasized I would be reading book after book. I would be unstoppable. . . It did not happen. Instead after the read-a-thon, I didn’t finish even one book last week.I was so tired, it wasn’t until Thursday that I felt like myself. I’ll plan better for the next event in October.
I have a ton of books due next week that I would really like to read. I’m a little addicted to my library’s holds system and it doesn’t help that I can put books on hold any time of the day. So I’m hoping to read and finish:
- A Curse as Dark as Gold by Elizabeth C. Bunce
- The Seance by John Harwood. I’ve already started it and love it so far.
- A Fine and Private Place by Peter S. Beagle
- The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. Already started it and in awe of Collins.
Kailana and I are having a read-a-long together and are reading Tender Morsels by Margo Lanagan and Drood by Dan Simmons. We’re hoping to be on chapter six of Lanagan and twelve of Simmons by this Saturday. Feel free to join us.
I also have to start reading Moby Dick for class. Thank goodness I have three weeks to finish it and write an essay. So that’s it for this week. I better go and get started on my books.
Has the read-athon affected your reading? What are you reading this week?
