Read Your Own Books Read-A-Thon: The Finish Line
Phew. I just made it. I finished my second book just in time to take a breath and write this post before heading off to enjoy my last week of work at Camp Summit.
So, how'd I do? Well, I thought that I'd be able to read more. But, I had a migraine for about six hours yesterday. That put a dent in my overall reading time. I did manage to read two full books, start to finish.
My other book, The Ask and the Answer by Patrick Ness was not so light or refreshing. It was more like a speeding rocket ship that was headed for collision with the faraway planet of Awesome. It's a dystopian novel, which is one of my all-time favorite genres. I bought it Sunday at about noon. I just finished reading all 500+ pages of it this morning. (Translation: I couldn't put it down!)
This book is a sequel to the highly creative and amazing The Knife of Never Letting Go, which I also loved. The third book in this series comes out in September and I cannot wait to read it. I'll post a review soon.
Though I did not accomplish all of my *lofty* reading goals in this read-a-thon, I had a great time and read two full books. Thanks to The Bibliophilic Book Blog for hosting this read-a-thon. I can't wait to see what other folks accomplished!
