ACK! Book Overload!
I have too much to read.
And it's all stuff I want to read—meaning, it's not for research or homework! :)
1) Eat Pray Love, of course. I need to keep up with that for my book club obligations. And I'm loving it even more now that we're into the Pray part. I'm really interested in her spiritually journey.
2) I still have my copies of Lizard and Kitchen, both by Banana Yoshimoto, from the library. Lizard is due tomorrow, so I think I'm going to try and get through that tonight (I've already renewed it once).
Update: Already finished Lizard. Still haven't started Kitchen.
3) Today in the mail I got my copy of Lindsey's Leavitt's Princess for Hire. What I didn't realize is that I would ALSO get a copy of Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick. I thought the other winner from that drawing would get it, not me. How excited was I when I opened the box?!?!
Admittedly, I'm going to wait at least a little bit on Princess for Hire. I'm going to read it along with my sister-in-law. It's a YA book (Disney/Hyperion), so it would also be appropriate for my niece. I think it would be fun for us all to read it together. But she needs to get the book first :)
4) We got a notice today from the library that The Passage by Justin Cronin is waiting for me. With all the hype around this book, I just couldn't wait. I just get giddy for vampires, what can I say? The problem is that it's 766pp, and since it's so hot and there's a waiting list as long as Rapunzel's hair, I won't be able to renew it. That's going to be pretty intense, I think.
So there will be more book reviews in my future. I can't tell you which will come first, but keep an eye out. And keep your fingers crossed that I get enough sleep and get my homework finished :/
