Well, it's close to the finish line and dinner's here, so I'm calling it!
Final challenge update:
Total time blogging/reading/social networking: 26 hours
Total pages read: 2005
Books finished: 7 + 65% of Rose Under Fire
The books I finished this weekend were:
- The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey
- Pi in the Sky by Wendy Mass
- This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales
- Eruption!: Volcanoes and the Science of Saving Lives by Elizabeth Rusch
- The True Blue Scouts of Sugar Man Swamp by Kathi Appelt
- Rapture Practice by Aaron Hartzler
- Doll Bones by Holly Black
- and 65% of Rose Under Fire by Elizabeth Wein
I also listened to some of The Case of the Left Handed Lady (Enola Holmes #2) by Nancy Springer while exercising (and not while cleaning or doing laundry since I haven't done any of those things yet!!).
This was a really fun weekend for me because I loved every book that I read this weekend. I guess my favorite out of all of them was Doll Bones, but really they were all excellent. It's especially exciting because when I started thinking about crafting my TBR pile (over a month ago), I didn't think there was anything I was particularly excited to read! Some time spent perusing Netgalley and Edelweiss proved me wrong, and I'm really glad.
Boyfriend had a nice time this weekend, too! He finished the following books:
- How to Grow Up and Rule the World by Vordak the Incomprehensible
- Science Ink: Tattoos of the Science Obsessed by Carl Zimmer
- Relish: My Life in the Kitchen by Lucy Knisley
- Cooked: A Natural History of Transformation by Michael Pollan
- A Tale Dark and Grimm by Adam Gidwitz
- Frankenstein's Cat: Cuddling Up to Biotech's Brave New Beasts by Emily Anthes
- and part of Lincoln's Grave Robbers by Steve Sheinkin
I want to give a shout out to Ms. Yingling of Ms. Yingling Reads for being our fabulous challenge organizer this year! It's really a fun weekend and I'm glad we could make it happen. Thanks, also, to everyone who participated. (And thank you so much to my obliging Boyfriend who will take a whole weekend to sit inside and read quietly beside me. :)
