Summer Lovin’ Day 5: Book Shimmies & Title Scrabble

July 5, 2013 2013 Challenges 3

(Organized and hosted by Oh, Chrys!, Tumbling Books, Effortlessly Reading, Love Life Read, Shelf Addiction, Read Sleep Repeat, and Reviewing Wonderland)

Okay, today’s post is all about our progress. So before I begin, let’s do a book shimmy!

I’ve finished Eloisa James’ Once Upon a Tower and what a delight it was! James can be hit or miss for me and usually because she uses a lot of her Shakespearean background in her novels and intermixes it, etc that I get lost and then lose interest. I was delighted with Tower and it’s one of my fave reads of the year!

I’m almost done with Darynda Jones’ First Grave on the Right. It’s a little strange reading about the city you live in and Jones mentions streets and areas. I admit it pulls me out of reading because I want to place things (especially when she mentions Charley going from side of the city of next and I try to time it according to the book), but then I have to force myself to continue. One reason I really wanted to read this book is because I met her in May and I promised I’d read at least the first book. She was very funny and just a great author to meet.

So what’s next on my list? I’m probably going to start Divergent next and then finish up with Murder as a Fine Art. I’m confident I’ll have both books completed by the end of this.

How are you doing on your reading?

    Wow! It seems like you figured out all the title scrambles. I didn’t participate today mostly because I’m horrible at word scrambles 🙂

    You’re doing really well in your book progress. I haven’t read Divergent yet, but I do own it and the sequel so I’ll look forward to what you have to say about it.
