The Sunday Salon: What a Week!

It's been a fun week for me around here. I feel like I've been posting a ton. That's mostly due to my attempt at all the different kinds of posts for Blog Post Bingo. Hopefully it was as fun for you as it was for me, and not too overly annoying.

The Bookword Game made it's debut on my blog this week, with the voting of "what we should call a book that everyone else loves, but you hate." Thank you to everyone that's dropped by to vote! If you haven't yet, you still have a couple of days. We'll announce the winner, and open the floor for suggestions for the new word on Wednesday.

I finished a couple of books this past week. The Dark is Rising by Susan Cooper and The Hunt for Dark Infinity by James Dashner. Reviews to come this week. I need to watch The Seeker now, to go along with my Lit Flicks challenge project, but I'm finding it hard to get a hold of. The library status on it says "claimed returned." Not a good thing for me I'm thinking.

And today I plan on concentrating on All The Pretty Horses by Cormac McCarthy. Strange, different writing, but surprisingly engaging at the same time. If I finish it, maybe I'll try Inkdeath some more. But I'm also dying to dive into all those
book fair books I bought!

Okay, well. I think that's about it for my book life. My other life? Well, we'll leave that all for another day.


  1. I'm glad to hear you are liking All the Pretty Horses. I'm planning to read it and the only other McCarthy book I've read is The Road. I liked it, but it was heavy and different.

  2. The Road is on my list to read for sometime this year.

  3. Great week of posts, Suey! I really enjoy your blog.
    I read Susan Cooper's series for the first time toward the end of last year. For me they were memorable, but not outstanding. (Does that make sense?) The Road is also on my to-read list this year.

  4. the Bookword game was really cool. I can't wait to see the results.

  5. As I loved The Road, I will check this other book too.

    Now I better go, vote for that game!

    My TSS post is up!

  6. I'll be interested in your review of Cooper's book. I have read her, but I didn't find the book I read by her very memorable! I hear she gets better, but I haven't braved the next book yet. I actually can't remember what book I read at the moment...
