I can't believe it's the last day of November, can you? I don't think I'm ready for December and the end of the year. Although after yesterday's visit to Target I can say that I'm finished with my Christmas shopping.
So with five days off of work, I've been busy. Reading. Since Wednesday night, I've finished seven books. It's been quite awhile since I've read so many books in such a short period of time. I have yet to write up my thoughts on any of the books, but here are the victims of my reading frenzy:
The Likeness, Tana French
Sex, Drugs, and Cocoa Puffs, Chuck Klosterman
Life After Genius, M. Ann Jacoby
Apart from the Crowd, Anna McPartlin
Thirteen Reasons Why, Jay Asher
Riding with the Queen, Jennie Shortridge
Broken, Daniel Clay
All were good books, although they all had an element of darkness running through them. And interestingly, the last four all gave me serious doubts at first...each book had something that bothered me, whether it was the characters (Riding), or the writing (13 and Broken), or the approach (Apart). However, they all managed to suck me in eventually.
And now, for the rest of the day, I think I'll be spending a serious chunk of time on my computer writing future posts for each of these books. And maybe sneaking in a little more reading.
