What I’m reading: Spooky South by: S.E. Schlosser
Where I’m reading: On the couch with my new soft and fluffy throw blanket.
What page I’m on: 75
Where I acquired the book: Bought it from Amazon a couple of years ago! It wasn’t available at the library.
What I think so far: I started reading this 2 years ago and never finished. The stories are quaint, but aren’t told in a very “spooky” way. I appreciate the fact that the author decided to collect and retell stories from across the South U.S., but none of them really draw me in. It’s still a neat and quick read (I just need to actually finish them all this year!) The illustrations are really neat.
What I’m reading: Something Wicked This Way Comes by: Ray Bradbury
Where I’m reading: My usual place on the couch, but this time with some Chick-fil-A for breakfast!
What page I’m on: 167
Where I acquired the book: The library.
What I think so far: I’m not super impressed. It’s creepy, but it’s written almost like poetry at times. I feel like the action and the characters’ thoughts are interrupted by so many unnecessary words and metaphors. The only other book by Bradbury I’ve read is Fahrenheit 451, which I really enjoyed.
What I’m reading: Doctor Sleep by: Stephen King
Where I’m reading: My usual spot on the couch with a cup of tea, in bed at night.
What page I’m on: 187
What I think so far: Pleasantly surprised! I didn’t have a desire to read this because I didn’t think it would be a worthy sequel to The Shining.
What I’m reading: Oryx and Crake by: Margaret Atwood
Where I am reading: At home on the couch near my laptop, surrounded by notebooks and pens and kid toys.
What page I’m on: 62 of 376
What I think so far: This has been on my list for a long time, but I’ve always felt too intimidated to read it. I enjoyed The Handmaid’s Tale by the same author, but didn’t like The Blind Assassin or Cat’s Eye. But I’m enjoying it so far!
