I’m doing a quick WWW Wednesday and leaving this post so that everyone can post their January “Embarrassment of Riches” stats!
Reading: A Crown of Lights (Merrily Watkins 3) by Phil Rickman and 11/22/63: A Novel by Stephen King and The House of the Seven Gables by Nathaniel Hawthorne. (I barely started it and actually liked it, but have been spending all my time reading Stephen King, first. So much for my “chapter a day” idea.)
Reading next: Something from the TBR list.
The best part of the Embarrassment of Riches Challenge is that it makes reading books I really want to read feel like I’m doing something “worthy.” (That’s not the right word, is it? I’m groping for the word here… ETA: WORTHWHILE. I was so close.)
Twelve Drummers Drumming. 1/4/13 Contemporary cozy mystery I liked despite an annoying habit of author to cut away when something important is revealed or about to happen and start the next chapter later, and backtrack to let us know what we missed. Yes, that. And still liked the book. (ebook)
Unraveled. 1/10/13 Story is fascinating and relationship between intense, and I am seeing why I keep finding Milan’s name on lists of favorite romance authors. (audiobook)
Votes for Vixens. 1/15/13 Sympathetic characters dealing with emotional and physical trauma, rich detail, and an unpredictable plot made it worth the while. (ebook)
Blackwood (Strange Chemistry). Twisty plot, high-concept idea, solid YA paranormal. I likey. (ebook)
The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle. A free gift from audible, Sherlock Holmes narrated by Alan Cumming. Wonderful.
My goal is silver, and I’ve now read 6 out of 24. I think I may switch to platinum at this rate.
The Black Count: Glory, Revolution, Betrayal, and the Real Count of Monte Cristo. (Verdict, love what I read and will definitely BUY.)
My goal is platinum and I’ve now read 1 out of 50. (Ooops!)
