I’ve been off work all week and have been crazy busy making Christmas presents, making pumpkin pies and roasting one mammoth of a turkey. I have barely read a word all week!
Oh, who am I kidding? I’ve barely read a word in several months that wasn’t like pulling teeth.
So, this weekend, my mission is to take back my reading. I’m going to pick through books until something sticks and them I. Am. Going. To. Finish. It. This is war, my friends. I need easy to read, engaging, fast… I need something to looooooove.
My list of possibilities:
- The Son of Neptune by Rick Riordan. If Rick can’t do it, I’m seriously concerned no one can.
- Wonderstruck by Brian Selznick. I was planning to read that during last months readathon. It… didn’t happen.
- Down the Mysterly River by Bill Willingham. We all know my blind adoration for Mr. Willingham.
- Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor. Something…horrible…happened this past weekend and I needed some retail therapy. The cover just called out to me!
- A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith. One of my favorite books. Maybe I need a favorite comfort reread?
- The Beekeeper’s Apprentice by Laurie R. King. Ditto above.
- Chime by Franny Billingsley. I want to see why this was better than Shine by Lauren Myracle.
- The Novel in the Viola by Natasha Solomons. Well, I seriously adored her first book. Maybe this one will click with me as well.
- The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of her Own Making by Catherynn M. Valente. I’ve been meaning to read this one for way too long.
- Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce. Hello? Fairytales? Sounded good to me! And the stinking library didn’t have her new book yet. Which sounds even better. *grumble*
- The Vanishing of Katharina Linden. Don’t take it off my list Debi!
