Hello on this fine Monday evening!
Last week, I shared with you that I was participating in the High Summer Readathon, a chance to read all week long. I had high hopes for the week, digging into the All Souls Trilogy, but I sadly did not progress as I had hoped or planned. Here's a quick peek at what I actually did get accomplished . . .
A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness: 452 pages
World War Z by Max Brooks: 135 minutes
It wasn't a bad week of reading, especially considering that Harkness's novel is even BETTER on the re-read and I am savoring it so much. I cannot wait to finish it in the next couple of days and dive into Shadow of Night and finally, my highly anticipated book of the year, The Book of Life!
I also was almost able to complete my current audiobook -- an intriguing read with a multitude of narrators, and one that is not like the movie AT ALL!! I will share more of my thoughts in my upcoming review, but I will just say that it was nothing like I expected after seeing the movie first!
This week, I will be continuing with Harkness's novels and catching up on my reviews ... because I am desperately behind and need to catch up if I plan on having anything posted here this week and beyond! I also really need to read The Fault In Our Stars by John Green because it is for a book club and I need to have it read in one week!
Did you participate in this latest readathon? How did you do? What is on your plans this week for reading and/or blogging?
You've already found a new book club in Montana? Or is this an online one?ReplyDelete
Charleen Lynette ... It's an online book club actually! It's my constant among all these moves!! :)Delete
I think you did an impressive job. We're all so busy...any amount of reading is impressive, in my opinion. I think I might reread Discovery of Witches again myself.ReplyDelete
Don't forget to add your link to the wrap-up linky. I extended the deadline: http://seasonsreading.blogspot.com/2014/07/high-summer-read-thon-wrap-up.html
Michelle Miller ... Thank you! I am behind in my blog reading, so I'm using this link to hop over now to link up. :)Delete
