Since I seem to be in a fickle mood when it comes to books, I have decided to just cave into utter insanity (I am now in the middle of 11 books. I know, I know). I've been joining events as I stumble across them in the blogging community. And since I need a way to keep track of everything, i figured I would just put them all in one big post. Then you can decide to join in on the craziness too. :)
Carl is hosting a readalong of the Mistborn trilogy. The group already finished the first title, but Amanda convinced me to join in on the fun. I really love high fantasy, and it is something I have been missing since I started my project. I just love the world-building, the grandeur, and the surprise of diving into a world built by a talented author. The reading schedule hasn't been announced for the second two books, but you can still join in! I started the first book a few nights ago, and let me tell you, it is a page turner for sure!
Sheila at Book Journey. The readalong is a "read as you will but finish by the end of the month" kind of gig, which I always enjoy. :)
I have been wanting to read The Secret Garden since Jillian read it, so this was a perfect excuse. I didn't own a copy of the book until just recently, but I remember borrowing it from a friend to read on more than one occasion. I have already finished it, but my thoughts will be up at the end of the month. Again, you have plenty of time to join in, so please do! Sheila will be hosting a garden party on her blog on the 31st. And from what I hear, there will be lots of fun things, including giveaways, etc-all garden themed!
Adam at Roof Beam Reader, Smash Attack Reads, Not Now...I'm Reading, and Lady Reader's Bookstuff (I linked to the sign-up on Adam's page, since that is where I signed up, but you can sign up at any of their blogs).
I haven't read anything by Andrew Smith, but since I respect Adam's opinion on books, I decided to go for it. I'm kind of at that point where I need something else to focus on beside my project, and this seems like a great way to learn more about an author I've never read before! Go and sign up if you're interested-it is going to be a great time, I'm sure of it!
Inspired by the Mistborn readalong, Amanda and Naithin are hosting a readalong of Warbreaker. Amanda lovingly linked to the free ebook download on her sign up post, so go there if you are interested in reading a lovely high fantasy novel!! (you know you want to).
So glad that I've got all of this information in one place. Let me know if you're joining in on any of these lovelies, OR if you know of any others I should join!
