High Summer Read-a-thon Mid-week Check In
I had a really good reading day on Monday and actually finished My Soul to Take! I liked it and hope to review it very soon. Tuesday I read more from Earthbound, which I am really enjoying. I am not for sure what Tavia is yet, but I am very intrigued. I loved Aprilynne Pike's Wings series and liked Life After Theft, but I think Earthbound is going to be my favorite of hers. Wednesday I read just a little more of Earthbound, I visited with my grandparents after work, and really did not read much after I came home. I also participated in School Library Journal's SummerTeen online conference and had so much fun! I think I was able to get like 20 egalleys, because you know I really really needed them! We got to chat with Jennifer Lynn Barnes about her new book and listening to panels presented by authors. I also listened to Tamora Pierce's Keynote speech, which was amazing! I just started her books last year and I am almost done with the Circle series. I love her writing and world building and am so excited that she is writing Battle Magic, which is part of the Circle books. It is sort of a flashback book. Thursday I forgot to take a book with me to work, so I went off list and read part of Hero by Althea Kontis, an egalley I put on my phone from the SummerTeen event. It is good so far. I loved Enchanted, so I have high expectations for Hero. I went out to dinner with friends and it was really late when they left, so no more reading last night. I hope to read more today after work. Hope everyone else is having a good reading week!
