Monday’s Minutes #31

Currently Reading:

  • Abomination by Gary Whitta – a review book.
  • Uprooted by Naomi Novik
  • Shadow of Night by Deborah Harkness
  • Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling – for the HP Re-read I’m doing.

Abomination Uprooted Night Chamber

Finished: Manifesta by Jennifer Baumgardner and Amy Richards, which I won’t be reviewing due to it being over a decade old, and, therefore outdated. I also finished Ready Player One by Ernest Cline and The Scottish Prisoner by Diana Gabaldon, both of which I’ll be reviewing sometime this week.

 Manifesta Ready Scottish

Total pages read for the week: 929

Total # of books for the year: 50.  I know what you’re thinking.  Rachelle, why are you reading Shadow of Night when you tore A Discovery of Witches apart in your review?!  Well, while there was certainly enough I didn’t like about the first book, a part of me also wanted to find out what would happen next.  I wasn’t curious enough to pay money for the second book, but when I saw it at the library, I decided it wouldn’t hurt to check it out.  I even read the first chapter before I took it home.  It didn’t make me want to scream or roll my eyes, so I will give fifty pages before I make the decision of whether or not to read the whole book.

  1. Ooh, brave soul giving a disliked book a second shot with its sequel!

    Also, Uprooted is sitting on my shelf and taunting me… I hope to get to it before I have to return it to the library, but the “ooh! new, shiny book!” is strong in this one. 😦

    1. So far Uprooted is ok. I feel like the MC is a bit oblivious, but I haven’t gotten very far into it yet. I’ve been wanting to read it for awhile, but kept putting it off for other books. I’m reading it now because two of my book clubs are reading it this month.

      1. I’m a little more than a quarter of the way through and it has gotten significantly better. Unless something goes horribly wrong with the story, I’d say it’s at least a 3-star​ read, if not 4.
