Week in Review (21)

Random Thoughts

My reading seems to be doing well lately. I am reading a lot of good books. I even used my eReader. I need to stop going on the computer, though. The more I read, the more I want to buy more books! I need to stop thinking like that because I have plenty of books. If I didn't buy anything for the rest of the year, I would have plenty to read. I also find, though, that new books inspire me to read more. I might need to go back to using the library more.

Challenge News

Once again, a mostly Once Upon a Time week. I even read some of the books off my initial list. I am very happy with the fact that I am actually following it to a point. I tend to make a list and then not read anything off it. I probably won't read all of them, but it is still something.

I also read the third book in the Chaos Walking trilogy by Patrick Ness and that counts for the TwentyEleven Challenge as a 'Mind the Gap'.

  1. I'm looking forward to reading your thoughts on The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms as that is one book that I've been considering reading for awhile now. I've even checked it out from the library but it ended up going back unread. Sounds like you had a great week!

  2. I can't wait to read your thoughts on A Monster Calls! Have a great week.

  3. Where did you find the Chaos Walking prequel? I don't remember hearing much about it before!

  4. Just curious, Kelly-do you ever sleep? :)
