So, I've totally immersed myself in "Wives and Daughters," loving it as much this second go-round as I did the first many years ago. Meanwhile, "Evening Class" is getting totally neglected. I can't seem to get emotionally involved in that one, and I know so many of you LOVE that book! It's the only one I'm reading for a challenge (Something About Me) right now, so I need to finish it! I need to get going on another Award Challenge book too. I'm not doing so well on all the challenges lately. And there's so many more that are tempting me: The Cardathon one, the Decades one, the 888 one, just to name a few.
But as you may know, I'm doing my own challenge which is basically, The read-as-many-YA-novels-in-a-month's-time-as-you-can Challenge! The book fair starts in a week, and I like to have read some of the new books that Scholastic is promoting, so that's taken up a lot of reading time. I've really enjoyed the books this time though... sometimes they are promoting fluff ones, but this time, they've been really good.
Anyway, as soon as that 's all over, maybe I can get back to some of my regular reading lists. I am nearly done with the TBR Challenge though, I only have two left. However, one of them I can't find! It's making me wonder if I ever had it in the first place... #8 of the Unfortunate Events series. I just assumed we had them all, but maybe we never ended up with that one. Anyway, I need to finish that series one of these days.
Books on hold that I'm really anxious to get my hands on are: Extras by Scott Westerfeld, Book of a Thousand Days by Shannon Hale, and Dragonhaven by Robin McKinley. Oh, and the 2nd book in Meg Cabot's Mediator series. Hopefully they'll start showing up soon... well... maybe after book fair would be good!
I guess that's it for the book chitchat of the week! Have a great reading weekend everyone! We're told it's going to snow here, so my plan is to curl up and read, read, read!
