I’ve finally met my match in speed-reading. My daughter’s devouring books from the local libraries faster than I can read them! Wouldn’t be so bad if she didn’t order in books that I’m keen on reading, too — generally books in a series, so of course I just have to read them RIGHT THIS MINUTE. Like, before they have to go back and she orders in the next one in the series. ‘Cuz, it would be irritating as all heck for me to grab one and find I’m missed a book and am reading them out of freaking order, wouldn’t it?
And did I mention that I haven’t even spent all my birthday book vouchers yet? Let alone found the time to read Hush Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick and Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl, the two books I have spent a voucher on? Horrors! That’s sooo not like me. Damn those library due dates. Mutter mutter, growl growl.
Hence this month’s reading list. A bizarre mixture of YA, eBooks I’ve converted and loaded onto my iPhone, and books that I’ve been receiving in the mail after winning a bundle from the cat-egory(pun intended!) authors who blog over at the funny and endearing and quite wonderful LoveCats DownUnder blog.
And speaking of LoveCats DownUnder, I’ve read two of books that I won that have been written by these talented authors so far and all I can say is…. Awesome! Can’t wait for the rest to arrive *rubs greedy little hands in glee*. Definitely worth following this blog, people.
