Reading List 2009 Update


I had an FAN-FREAKIN-TASTIC reading week this week! Not only did I squeeze in an extra book, but they were all made of awesome - much enjoyment, oh yeeeeeeaaaahhhhh :D

15. The Hollow by Jessica Verday - this book will be on the shelves in October this year, but Jess was kind enough to allow a few writing buddies to read it and just gotta say LOVED IT!!!

16. Hunted by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast - Book 5 in the House of Night series - again LOVED IT!! I polished this one off in one day and am already anxious for the next installment :D I know, it'll be a while....

17. Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr - yes, I hang my head in shame that I am just now getting to this one, but it was worth the wait, excellent book :) The next one in the series, Ink Exchange, is on my list for next week (in fact, I will be starting it as soon as I get all those nasty household chores out of the way!)

And I'm almost half-way to my 50 new book goal for the year! Wahoo!!! I've been getting the urge to reread some Harry Potters, so the new books might slow down a bit (it's the cable company's fault, they've been playing the movies....)

Christine - it really was a great reading week :D And I didn't know the new one was coming out - yay!

Elana - are you kidding me!? I hang my head every time I read your WIP updates...the reason I haven't written anything is because I am so busy reading :) It is my ultimate procrastination...one I absolutely adore, but make no mistake...I am procrastinating working on my own stuff :) It would be better for my own writing career if my reading list was a little less full :D

How do you get so much reading done in one week? Do you sleep? I must know your secret!

Well, I do read pretty quickly, but honestly, no, I don't sleep :D If I'm in the middle of a good book, I tend to stay up really late. I also carry the book everywhere with me, so I read a page or two while I'm cooking, I read while I'm eating, I read on commercials (if I watch tv) and most of my reading gets done when my kids are in preschool and at night when everyone has gone to bed. But, if I can get the kids to sleep by 8, then I will usually read until at least midnight. And if I'm almost done, I'll push it even later until it's finished :) I'm kind of an insomniac, so that helps ;-)
