Holly: I’m amazed at how fast this year is flying by. It’s July, y’all. July! How did that happen? I was just looking at my Goodreads shelves and unless my numbers are off, I’ve read 93 books so far this year. I’m trying for 144 this year, and I think I’ll be able to pull that off if I keep up this pace.
We’re out camping this weekend, so who knows how much I’ll actually be able to read, but I brought Burning Up by Susan Andersen and Money, Honey by Susan Sey (she’ll be guest blogging on Wednesday!) with me. I hope to finish at least one of them.
I just finished reading I Kissed an Earl by Julie Ann Long. The story was wonderful and absolutely what I’ve come to expect from Long, but the editing was terrible. Seriously terrible. There were typos every few pages – bad ones – and the hero said and did everything ironically. Every.single.thing. If he made a gesture, it was made ironically. If he made a statement, it was made ironically. It drove me batty.
Rowena: I can’t believe how fast this year is flying by. So much is happening right now (with weddings and Brenna’s basketball) that I’m surprised that I’ve been reading as much as I have but what can I say? I’m a sucker for a book and I’ll always find time to read (even when it’s at my desk at work when I’m supposed to be working).
This week I’ve read a bunch of stuff. I’ve read Life of a Poser by Beth Killian (The 310 series, Book 1) and that book was pretty crazy then I read Airhead by Meg Cabot which was another start to what I already know is going to be a crazy series and I’m finishing up Love Me If You Dare by Carly Phillips. After I finish this book, I’m trying to decide between Burning Up by Susan Andersen and Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. I have both to read, I’m just trying to figure out which one I’m going to read first.
Casee: July has really sucked for me so far. I’m only on my third book of the month. I’m reading Atlantis Betrayed by Alyssa Day. I’m only on the second chapter. I’m really into paranormals. Next up I have The Darkest Lie by Gena Showalter. I found it at the used bookstore today and was pretty excited.
I’m really, really hoping that July will pick up for me. Please give me some ideas!! I would greatly appreciate it.
What are you reading?
