Read-a-Thon – Hours 12-16

October 18, 2008

Whew. Just finished Alcatraz and the Evil Librarians by Brandon Sanderson – good solid fun. I’ve read Sanderson’s adult fantasy novels (except the one that just came out this Tuesday), and they’re some of the best fantasy books I’ve read in a long, long time – the Mistborn Trilogy very well might wind up in my top five for 2008. His YA book is equally impressive – funny and inventive and well-written, and packed with a lot of action (very similar vibe to Scott Westerfeld’s books, except funnier and fantasy instead of sci-fi based). Very good for this point in the evening (because MAN, I am dragging. I’ve got another two hours in me, tops.)

I put Wordy Shipmates down three hours ago, at page 144 – I was dozing off and looking at the words without actually reading, so I gave it a rest. Then there was a break for apple pie and socializing, so almost no reading got done during hour 14. I think I’m going to try to start Abarat, but might give that up as too much and just look at the pretty pictures (either the illustrations in Abarat or Vol. 3 of Fables) until I pass out.

I’ll do my best to post once more before I’m down for the night, though.

    I’m glad to hear you enjoyed Alcatraz! I got a big kick out of it early this year and am eagerly waiting for the sequel to come for me at the library.

    Yes, read some Fables! You know you want to. I read volumes 5 and 6 these past few hours and they were excellent as always. Now I really wish I had 7 here as well.

    Way to go!! My eyes were getting blurry just reading your post. Apple pie and socializing sound fun–keep on reading!
