On The Blog This Week

In My Reading Life

It took me all of last week to finish The Narrow Road to the Deep North. I liked the book a lot, but it was so dense that I had trouble reading more than 50 pages a day. That put me even farther behind on my reading schedule. I just started Smoke by Ellen Hopkins. Hopefully I can get through that one a little faster. Smoke is the sequel to Burned, and I loved Burned, so I think I’ll enjoy this one.

I hope everyone had a good week. See you later!


  1. I hope you enjoy Smoke and get through it a little quicker so you are back on schedule!! I hate when a book takes longer than I think and it throws me off.

  2. I really enjoyed The Narrow Road to the Deep North - though certainly found it hard going in places. I can see why it has won so many awards. I haven't heard of Ellen Hopkins though...

  3. I look forward to seeing you hypothetical tattoo!

    Have a great week!

  4. I can understand getting sidelined on a book. I am excited for your review of Smoke

  5. I haven't heard of the books you're working on! I hope you enjoy them though! :D I hate it when I hit a book that really slows me down...

    Here's my Weekly Recap!

  6. I think Hopkins' books are pretty quick to get through because of the prose for the most of them. Hope you have a good week and are able to get more reading done!

  7. Congrats on getting through The Narrow Road regarldess! I felt that way when I was reading Brandon Sanderson's The Final Empire. GAWSH. I couldn't focus on more than 50-pages at a time, but I liked it in the end. x)
