So I am participating as a reader in Dewey’s readathon this year! This always seems to come at a time when I am absolutely slammed and this year is no exception. I have a few more chores to finish up and then I plan on battening down the hatches for a long night reading. I read half of Incarnate by Jodi Meadows last night as a prequel and to make up for time I knew I would lose this morning.
More later, after I mop these floors ;)
Almost done with my cleaning. I straightened my TBR shelves. Yes, that is all TBR.
I plan on finishing Incarnate and then some of these ebooks. Do you have a favorite I should try first from the list?
Now that I am finally reading its going fast. Loving Incarnate so much. Such a quick, interesting, and unique idea.
I finished Incarnate and did a lot of the mini challenges. They were pretty fun. I especially liked the book sentences and anthology challenges. Now on to a new book.
I started reading Crave and my husband went to check the mail. What a wonderful day for a bookish jewelry order to come in. If you are interested in the store I bought it from the designer messaged me on Etsy to say she had several designs going up this week. Click here to visit.
*WHINES* What the hell Pam? (talks to self) So you decide to read a 431 page book! This late at night! You’ve only finished one damn book with the kids and other distractions today. You are the worst Readathoner ever. EVER.
So I read 150 pages of Crave. Its really good and I love where it is going but I needed a bath and I don’t take my iPad into the bath and I was getting a little emo about the big page amount, so I picked up First Day on Earth by Cecil Castellucci since it was a thin ARC at 150 pages.
This story is blowing my mind. Its about a boy named Mal and his day to day life, he was abducted by aliens, its all in the first person like he is talking to you and its amazing. Really, I think we will learn he wasn’t actually abducted, but uses that as a coping mechanism because his dad left and his mom is an alcoholic now, a really bad throwing up on the floor alcoholic, and he hopes to be abducted again and go light years away. Beautiful and sad.
I think that is it for me kiddies! I read Incarnate, and First Day on Earth and 1/3 of Crave. Not my best but I had a lot going on today. I did like the fun and festivity, perhaps I shall do this again sometime.
