Dewey Update #2

22 Oct


Second update.  Only a few hours in for me (7 for the readathon), but I’ve made good progress.  I finished my first book and reviewed it with updates to my reading challenges page.  I’ve also participated in two mini challenges.  Here’s my second one from Lisas’s World of Books:

Top 5  What are the 5 books you are looking forward to in the next few months or really into next year?

  1. Reread of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams — Can’t wait to laugh again the reidiculousness.
  2. Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs — Just won the book from a previous contest.  I’ve been wanting to read it since it came out!
  3. Timeless by Gail Carriger — I started the Parasol Protectorate series last month and own the rest.  I can’t wait for Timeless to be released so I can grab that one too.
  4. Hand of Isis by Jo Graham — I loved the Black Ships and can’t wait to read the second book set in that world.
  5. The Magicians by Lev Grossman — J has been bugging me to read this one for awhile. It’s sitting here waiting to be picked up.

    Been years since I read The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy – must be time for me to get it out again. Good luck with the rest of the readathon

    I keep hearing good things about Gail Carriger!
    I’m reading My Life in France by Julia Child, twittering away @ewillse, and wishing I read faster! Time is flying!
