Linking up with Anne! This was an off month for me. The number of books I read was way down from my usual count, but the start of school and extracurriculars was pretty hectic this year. This was a pretty uneven month for the books, too. I either loved them or disliked them.
Carry On, Warrior
9/10 This book is so full of good stuff. I may have mentioned this before, but I think I'm going to have to order my own copy just so I can dog-ear and highlight the living daylights out of it.
10/10 I had originally started this one right after finishing the second in the Maisie series, and I was feeling a little burned out on it. I put it back on the library's shelves for a few weeks, and when I came back to it, I was so happy that I had returned to it. This book was fantastic, and I can't wait to read the next--although I am making myself wait!
Oh, Jane, I'm afraid to say this, but this was the second in a row that I haven't loved. Honestly, I skimmed the last 60 pages. I read the afterword that came in the edition I had borrowed and I really enjoyed that--it was all about how these characters just aren't likeable. Ugh!
The Distant Hours
I walked away from this one after about 70 pages. I think after my tepid Northanger Abbey experience I am just not in the mood for any gothic intrigue.
So there it is--not a banner month, but I do have a stack of books lined up for the next four weeks that I am excited about.
