The end of June marks 6 months of the year completed! At the beginning of the year I set my reading goal to 50 books. Recently, I increased it to 56 as I thought that was my likely finish number. Currently I have read 31 books! I am very excited because it feels good to have a goal and since I am on track it feels even better. (I know a lot of you read up to or over twice as much as me, but I still feel good!)
Yes, reading Every Exquisite Thing did get me hooked and compelled me to read two more Matthew Quick novels!
Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock is another one of Quick’s young adult novels. It is about Leonard Peacock, a teenage boy, and his plan to kill himself but first deliver four gifts and kill his ex-best friend.
If you have read The Cellar than you will also love Living Dead Girl. By love I mean care deeply for their characters so that you wish you could mend their situation. (Basically love, right?)
A couple weeks ago I was reading about Under The Dome by Stephen King and was like hey I want to read that! So, I hopped on my computer and bought a copy (no bookstores)….the book arrived larger than what I am used to. Sure I could have looked it up online to see how big the book would be, but the thought never occurred to me. This book is over 1000 pages long. It is pretty much the size of my head and I am scared. How am I supposed to start this book?!?! I really hope I love it because the premise is so cool, but looking at it gives me a pit in my stomach!
This weeks Tuesday Talks topic is about when to give up on a book!
Personally, I start and stop reading books all the time. Sometimes I even check out a book from my library-never open it- and then return it back to the library without another thought. (okay… I definitely feel bad when I do this… every book deserves a chance!)
Read my review here!
When I read this book I had checked it out from my local library. I absolutely loved the book and had to own it, so I ordered it on amazon as I do not have any large bookstores near me. I just got the book and oh my god! Since the copy I read was from the library I was unable to remove the sleeve.
THE COVER UNDERNEATH THE SLEEVE HAS ME GOING WILD
