…it’s going as well as can be expected! With everything I have to accomplish (not to mention the fact that I’m a procrastinator – I admit it), I sometimes I feel like I’m in over my head with this book challenge. But taking a relaxing excursion to the library or a long-ish road trip — using that time to read — always makes me feel like I’ve caught up a tad.
So far, my favorites have been Broke by Glenn beck (a very informative book on our nation’s debt), Washington Burning by Les Standiford (the true story of the burning of Washington), and Les Mîserables by Victor Hugo. I must admit, however, The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins was interesting for a quick ‘children’s/young adult’ read. I had a few reservations but it’s a bit too much to go into… I DID enjoy it, and that’s all that matters for the time being!
Right now I’m reading Harry Potter and The Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling (and frankly, I’m loving it!). It’s about time that I read this series! They’re another quick read, but that’s what I need right now to catch up. On top of homework and ABRSM exams coming up, I estimate that I’ll easily have the series finished before the end of April. I’m not sure about before then, but maybe if I really push my time limit…?
Hopefully I’ll have some random book reviews to share soon! Stay tuned…
