The second book that I finished was Farworld: Water Keep by J Scott Savage. This is a book that I should have had read by thte end of July…but with work and moving this book got lost in the shuffle. Or rather it got lost in the whirlwind that was my friend L. Such an extradordinary packer…never would have gotten my place packed up with out her. Nothing was safe though….and I still don’t know where my other book, Nightwalker, is that I was also reading at the time of the move. Anywho, Farworld is the start of a new 5 book young adult fantasy series and I think that it will be a big hit. The first book started off a little slow (as first books often do) but when it started to pick it, it really took off. I can’t wait to learn what happens next!
A more detailed review on each will be up soon….promise. Although I am still behind in my reviews I have made it into books read in August…or am working on a review for a book that I finished in August. So that’s progress. But don’t be surprised if things start appearing out of order. I currently have plans to get my Farworld post up sooner then some of the other books I’ve read this month. That one might appear later on today. I just want to think about it a bit more before posting my thoughts.
Speaking of late reviews…I’ve finally managed to get reviews up for How to (Un)cage a girl Francesca Lia Block (Review), Austenland by Shannon Hale (Review), and The Boleyn Inheritance by Phillipa Gregory (Review).
Next up for me I think will be Into the Wild by JonKrakauer which is the first selection of a virtual book club that two of my friends and I are starting over of Facebook. My friends C, M and I hope to combine a live disscussion (via Yahoo IM or AIM) with a message board type discussion for those who can’t make a live chat. Not sure how it will work (or even if the other 18 members) will participate….but keep your fingers crossed for us!
This week I also plan on continuing to read Tana French’s In the Woods and I might also start Olive Kittridge by Elizabeth Stout. Both are library books and so I need to read them (and about a 100 other books) before they are due back home.
Well folks I think that’s about it for me for now. I hope that you are having a wonderful Sunday and until next time…Happy Reading!
