What to do, what to do! I managed to get an interview with one of my absolute, most, very favorite authors for January’s Estella’s Revenge and I am SO excited and SO nervous I can’t think of what I want to ask! I don’t think I was this nervous when I interviewed Markus Zusak! I hope I can calm down my star-struckedness and focus!
I’m still slogging through Kristin Lavransdatter. I was really enjoying the story up to book 2. Now it’s become very religious, almost zealously so. And, while I am a Christian, I’m finding it hard going. It doesn’t help that I don’t agree with some of the religious points Undset is trying to make. I’m going to try to keep going; I’ve gone to far to put it down now!
To counter act the heaviness of KL, I’ve picked up the latest from Rick Riordan. I really enjoyed the first two books in his Percy Jackson series, so I expect this to be a quick, fun read.
I’ve also been peeking at Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. I think this may be my heavy book for after Kristin Lavransdatter. (Or instead of it, she whispers) The writing seems to be very lush and sensual.
I admit it. I’ve already started Great Expectations for the My Year of Reading Dangerously challenge for next year. So sue me. I have tried 3 times already to get through that book. The furthest I made it was halfway, 10 years ago in high school! I will succeed this time!!! Please consider joining us! I need all the cheerleaders I can get to make it through these books!
