Hey I hope all you readathoners are doing awesome so far. Right now it’s 2 p.m. ish EST and I’ve just finished my third book. I’ve had two cups of coffee, tap water, and a Green Monster smoothie thus far.
Here’s what I’ve finished so far:
The Vicar Of Nibbleswicke by Roald Dahl -48 pages – This is an adorable short read that was written for charity, specifically the Dyslexia Institute. Definitely recommended Readathon reading.
The Boy In The Box by Cary Fagan – 224 pages – The overall concept, of a boy being kidnapped and forced into work at a Medicine Show is great, HOWEVER, the ending is totally choppy, this book does not stand on it’s own at all and feels like it’s missing a chapter, which honestly is super annoying.
Adios, Nirvana by Conrad Wesselhoeft – 240 pages – I am unsure how I feel about this. On the one hand it feels totally literary pretentious. ON THE OTHER, the main character Jonathan is a poet and writes the same way I wrote at his age and it’s all very existential and such, and well high school me would have loved the shiz out of this, and I can see teen boys really liking this book as well. So, four stars overall.
Listened to: I’m listening to Legion by Brandon Sanderson. I totally have showered and made my smoothie and walked around a little tiny bit while listening. So far, I’ve listened to 1 hour and 31 minutes. I have 37 minutes left!
