#48hbc : Doll Bones

Book finished: Doll Bones by Holly Black

An excellent, creepy, atmospheric middle-grade novel, Doll Bones is a book I'm going to thoroughly enjoy pressing into the hands of kids over and over again. There's a seriously creepy doll that might be haunted and three best friends who go on a quest to put her bones to rest. It's just the right level of scary and I honestly didn't want the story to end. Seriously, one of my favorites of the year. 

Challenge update:

Time spend reading/blogging: 21.5 hours
Pages read: 1731
Books finished: 7

Boyfriend finished Cooked and found it interesting, but overwritten. He said he could have edited it down to about 100 pages. He also finished A Tale Dark and Grimm by Adam Gidwitz (one I snuck onto his pile), which he liked. 

A little over 4 hours until I cross the finish line - can I finish one more book? Maaaaaybe...
