Let's first start with the weekly overview of what I did get posted this week . . .
- Reading Log Roundup: September 27, 2010
- Stand-Alone or Series?
- Fairy Tale Fridays: The Bremen-Town Musicians
I actually have another series post in the works with a GREAT list of recommendations, but I have not had the chance to finish it yet. I am hoping to finalize that one later this week. I have received so many recommendations and it has not been good on my TBR . . . and I think you are going to agree!!
During the month of October, I am going to unofficially participate in the RIP V Challenge. Because of everything going on, I do not feel comfortable making an official announcement; however, I do want to read as much as I can in the different genres as I can. This last week, I decided to go through my TBR pile and I found a few piles of books that I am going to be picking from throughout the month. I thought I would share these ridiculous piles with you . . . they are a bit ominous in and of themselves!!! :)
My priority books from the piles include The Heart-Shaped Box by Joe Hill and The Familiars by Adam Jay Epstein and Andrew Jacobson (which I just bought last night!). Other books that I really want to get to include Bunnicula by James Howe (a great one to re-visit after so many years!), Karma Bites by Stacy Kramer and Valerie Thomas, and maybe a good ol' Stephen King! Of course, there is also the classic, The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson, too. Basically, I want to get to all of them, but we will have to see how far I get. The one thing that I have going for me . . . traveling!! Time in an airport and on a plane always translates to good reading time for me!!
Last, but not least, I thought I would post the latest in my challenges!! I don't think I did very well this last month, but I'm really hoping to make up a lot over the next few months!! In fact, as of today, I think I have only completed one book since the last time I posted!!! So, so very, very sad!
