Hehe, so technically I'm done already. But I couldn't resist one last post with the time updates. I've been feeling pretty hardcore doing this. Even as I tweet, and do the necessities, I'm listening to an audiobook just so I won't lose any time. Tsk! Next year, I hope to be more laid back. Or train myself to be able to read faster and longer with less eyestrain.
(Sob story: It's the holidays, so doing this is really MUCH better than chilling at home. All my other friends are still schooling. ): )
I'll be commenting on everyone's posts today!
KEEP UP THE GOOD JOB EVERYONE!
0138h: Zoned out listening to Airman.
0337h: Finished it! Starts Reading Daniel X by James Patterson.
0502h: Daniel X is not to my taste. Very abrupt. Stargazer please don't disappoint.
0628h: Is disappointed. Still does not like Bianca and Lucas. Only fave character is Balthazar. Reads Just Listen by Sarah Dessen.
0631h: Remembers Korianne has given a bookmark too. Is happy. Giggles. Mum says too much reading and no sleep has corrupted my brain, and that I'm never to do this again. Is on a roll. Last 12 hours to go!
0840h: Finishes Just Listen. Has a new author to check out. Has a nagging feeling. Checks Airman audiobook. Oops. Is not done. Plugs in.
0920h: Is finally done with audiobook. On to The Beef Princess of Practical County.
1140h: Loved it. Was pretty light. Any light reading is loved. On to the Interns: Truth or Fashion.
1314h" Finished it. Was okay. On to Zombie Blondes.
1456h: Another okay book. Is happy with all the light reading. Now on to 3 Willows.
1736h: No idea why I read this. Seems like too much emotional baggage all at once. Maybe too much reading.
1900h: Is reading Shelf Discovery. Challenge over. Marks page, continues reading Shelf Discovery slowly. Goes to sleep.
1909h: Cannot sleep. Reads Shelf Discovery.
0014h: Finishes Shelf Discovery!
One of the best books I've read. It's witty, it's heartbreaking, it's strong. I'm like totally in love with Conor (and his treasure).
I didn't really like the pacing. The chapters seemed too short and too abrupt. Nonetheless, it was an interesting story, just not to my taste.
The plot is definitely a LOT better than the first. I loved finding out more about Balthazar. It's so easy for Bianca to throw away her parents (especially when they might have been killed) and join Lucas. Maybe I'm being deliberately obtuse, but I just cannot like Bianca. And Lucas? BLEHS. Soooo not a fan.
It's so detailed and beautifully written! It's a touching story, and I guess I just found another author to check out. :D
The Beef Princess of Practical County
I haven't read a book about life on a farm, so this was something far different for me. An insightful, light read, I'm glad I read this after reading Just Listen.
The Interns: Truth or Fashion
I haven't read the prequel, so I have no idea what this is about. The first page (website) drew me in. It was fun reading how they went about their lives at Couture. Reminds me of The Devil Wears Prada.
It's like a cross between Scott Westerfield's Pretty series and Amanda Ashby's Zombie Queen of Newbury High. A fun, light read, I'm recommending this to anyone who loves reading about zombies.
After reading Just Listen, 3 Willows seemed pretty draggy to me. Won't judge this book until I read it again.
It's super informative. I loved it, especially since it was written by a bunch of my fave authors.
Will update summary later. Have a great day! :)
