So far so good for today! Here’s what my day was like:
— possibly better than Pretties since this moved faster & things actually happened, but I’m generally just glad to finally be done with the trilogy. Loved the concept for the series, but three long books was a bit much for me.
— FANTASTIC book! Go read it. But be prepared to cry-at least get a teary. Multiple times – at least teary, maybe not sobbing every time. Don’t get me wrong though. It’s funny, quirky, sweet, and has a fantastic 12-year-old narrator named Steven who loves to drum and is trying to figure out girls. Unfortunately, his 4-year-old brother gets lukemia. Throughout the story Steven tells how he, his brother, and their family cope. It was really good. And I just discovered that there will be a sequel soon! Also, on the author’s website is curriculum for this book, which is pretty awesome.
3:15-4:00 Took a break from reading to do some online job-searching & listen to HP6 (45 min)
4:00-6:30 Finished Drums, Girls & Dangerous Pie (273 pages; 2 hrs, 30 min)
6:30-7:30 Dinner & Wii break
7:30-8:15 Socializing- reading blogs, twittering, etc. (45 min)
— Started out slow but then picked up. Includes supernatural elements – demons, angels – but not too overly strange. I did start to lose a little interest toward the end though.
9:15-9:30 Socializing (15 min to complete the hour)
9:30-11:15 Finished Devilish (263 pgs; 1 hr, 45 min)
12:10-12:40 Blogging! (30 min)
TOTAL for today: 10.5 hours and 754 pages
Whew, that was way better than I expected! Which is good since I ended up making plans for tomorrow and won’t be devoting the day to reading after all. 🙂
