No round-up this fair Sunday, as, like I said, I’m away from my usual collection and can only read so much. I brought one library book to my parents’ with me (Charlaine Harris’s Three Bedrooms, One Corpse) and finished it in a day. So I had to resort to the odd assortment of books lying around here: things I’ve left behind, things my parents read, things that have been picked up at book sales for no apparent reason. Which brings me to what I’m currently flipping through: He’s Just Not That Into You, by Greg Behrendt. Mild spoilers, if such a thing even exist, to follow.
Slow week on the reading front, everyone. I’m preparing for a week with my family, which means returning all of my library books. All I’m flipping through right now is Prisoner of Azkaban (yes, still, but I’m almost done!). I recently finished the second Runaways deluxe volume, by Brian K. Vaughan, and am going to be getting through the next Aurora Teagarden book on the bus, I expect. I have a few books still at my parents house, so I’m anticipating a read-through of the Oz series by L. Frank Baum. Vacation, especially around the holidays, is a nebulous sort of time, where you either have all the time in the world to read, or no time at all. You never really know which way it’ll go. Plus, reading too long in a moving vehicle nauseates me, so travel is more of a hindrance than an asset.
See you in a week!
Netflix Instant was kind enough to provide me with the DCOM (Disney Channel Original Movie) version of Lemonade Mouth, so I thought I’d do a compare and contrast with the Mark Peter Hughes novel of the same name. Naturally, spoilers to follow for both book (surprisingly good) and movie (predictably twee).
In an effort to keep myself more on task with my reading, and to give you guys a chance to see what I’m up to even if I don’t write it up, I’ve decided to check in every weekend with a round-up of what I’m reading.
Lest you think I’m slacking, the books I’ve finished since the last round-up:
See you next week!
I mentioned in my previous post that I was re-reading Jay Asher’s Thirteen Reasons Why, curious as to what all the hoopla was about since its release. For reference, I looked up my original notes/review/what-have-you on the book, from January 2008 (and though it should go without saying, everything from here on out will likely contain spoilers):
Forgive me, loyal readers (Hi, Mom!), for my lack of involvement with this blog as of late. I assure you, I’ve not stopped reading! Quite the contrary, actually. But sometimes it’s hard to write about everything you read, especially when you read a lot of things, like I do.
What I’m currently working through:
And that’s the last of what I’m currently sifting through, not counting the new books I picked up from the library today (more Harris: Shakespeare’s Champion and A Bone to Pick, the second novels in Harris’s Lily Bard and Aurora Teagarden series, respectively; and the next volume in Brian K. Vaughn’s superb comic series, Runaways). I’ll let you know if anything interesting comes up.
