Bout of Books 11 Day 1


Today, I finished The Killing Moon by N.K. Jemisin, which I was already close to being done with, and continued with The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay by Micheal Chabon.  The Killing Moon had me going back and forth between interested and slightly uninterested, just as the other Jemisin book I’ve read, The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms.  I’m really enjoying The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, though.  I really didn’t think I would be, but the story is pulling me along.  So far, it’s a book I can put down for awhile when I need to, for instance, when I need to return to work, but when I’m reading it, I’m fully engrossed.

Since I had to work today, I didn’t do either of the challenges.  I have to work tomorrow as well, but I’ll be leaving early, which means I’ll not only have more reading time, but I’ll hopefully be able to do at least one of the challenges.

Books finished: 1

Total  pages: 153

    1. I will be doing a review of The Killing Moon. Up until now, I’ve only been doing posts for read-a-thons, due to my schedule/life, but I was planning on announcing a few changes after Bout of Books, which includes writing reviews. I can’t promise I’ll get the review of The Killing Moon done before the end of the week, but it will be up soon.

  1. That’s a very good summary of how I felt about the Hundred Thousand Kingdoms as well. I still haven’t rated it and I read it months ago…
    I’m glad you found a book that’s gripping you more 🙂

  2. No challenges for me as well. I was just afraid that if I started focusing on that I would sit behind the computer for more than I intended. Good luck the rest of the week 🙂

  3. Congratulation! already a book down! It is hard to participate in the challenges when we have work too :S. Good luck for the rest of the event!
