Haunted Week

{This Girl Reads}
Hosted by This Girl Reads


Welcome to a recap of Haunted days I've missed while pretending it's not already the end of October already... (Where did this month go?! I misplaced it.)

This is bad enough to scare anyone...

Insurgent & Glass Houses - Don't ask.

Every, EVERY "how-to" book I've ever started. Ever.

{This Girl Reads}

Resurrect old fav's?

Watership Down!!!!  The rabbits have big, scary teeth!!!!!!!

{This Girl Reads}

Skeletons... daring me to read them:

Daughter of Smoke and Bone, Hallowed, Under the Never Sky. Also... don't ask.

Or do. I'd love to vent vehemently.

What drives me CRAZY in books?

Illogical responses. If it doesn't make sense, I'm throwing the book. (Not really. I love books.) I don't care how wildly improbably something is... the wilder, the better, but if there's no supporting rationality, I quit.

Ah... I have no quick response here. I love so many book blogs and I hardly get out to visit them as much as I'd like. I'm posting a Blogger-Interview-Giveaway similar to my Author-Interview-Giveaway posts, and I'm really excited about it. I LOVE finding out fun details of wonderful peeps!!

Books that Tricked or Treated me... What a GREAT question!!!  

I read Cinder before checking out any reviews... and Grave Mercy - both saweeeeet Treats!!!  I'll never forget that rush of Wow! happening on such a great book unexpectedly.

Tricks? The Time Travelor's Wife - so bitter. The tone is so resigned. I hated the lack of hope. I know lots of people loved it, but I didn't. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is another. It's shocking enough, and the girl is amazing... but in general, the morals are so turned upside down that I don't care if anyone "wins" and *shudder* that bothers me. These two made me wary of Best Sellers.

The final words.... da-da-da-DUM!!!!!

I finished Bloodlines this morning!
Dimitri Belikov had arrived.
The Hobbit:
The evening was closing in, and his cloaked figure quickly vanished into the twilight. Frodo did not see him again for a long time.
The Ship Who Sang:
"It's a good thing I'm so nasty. Balances your soft heart - partner," he said. "Helva! Don't ever change." He might as well have been singing.
Alexia smiled down at his bare chest and then looked once more into his eyes. The yellow was back. "All the time."
*sigh* Such great books!!!

This is a rather frantic recap of a rather busy week (behind the scenes). I hope you have a maaaahvalous week (whether you celebrate Halloween or not).
