what I'm reading now

Saturday, November 17, 2012

I woke at 4 this morning and had a choice to make:  with my corporate work suspended until Monday at 8 AM, how would I spend this sudden gust of unscheduled time?



I mean, let's face it:  I left my own Florentine novel in suspense at page 80—I left it, literally, mid-sentence, in a scene I never saw coming.  I left it several days ago, feels like weeks ago, feels like another era, and I don't know when I will get to it again.  I don't know if I'll remember what it was I imagined I was doing.

But.  There are four books I've been dying to read—four books that, if left unread, basically disqualify me to opine about the year in Children's/YA.  And I gotta opine.

Picture me reading this weekend, then, in the following order:

Code Name Verity (Elizabeth Wein)
Son (Lois Lowry)
Ask the Passengers (A.S. King)
Goblin Secrets (William Alexander)

My thoughts about Code Name Verity will be posted here tomorrow.

Disappointed by everything on my bookshelf and my computer . . .I turn to knitting. And maybe cooking.

It's a great day to do anything that's not writing, methinks.

Definitely looking forward to your thoughts on Code Name Verity!
