  • Parable of the Sower by Octavia E. Butler

  • The Ghost Ship by Diane Carey
  • The Once and Future King by T.H. White

Total pages read this week: 445

Total # of books for the year: 47 of 85.  After finishing The Circle by Dave Eggers, I had a huge urge to reread 1984, one of my favorites from when I was in high school.  I also started The Ghost Ship because I needed something a little more light-hearted after The Circle and to take the edge off my reading both 1984 and Parable of the Sower.  Last night, I dipped back into The Secret History of Wonder Woman after going to see the movie for the 2nd time with a friend who hadn’t seen it yet.  It was just as awesome as the 1st time, and I can’t wait until it comes out on DVD.
