High Summer Read-a-Thon - What's in the books for me? #HSreadathon

As my summer comes to a close... Yes, I know you're probably saying, "...but summer doesn't end until September." Well, not for me. My sons go back to school on August 3rd. Ugh. Anyway, I digress. As I was saying, as my summer comes to a close, I seem to have a crap load of reading to do. Between working on my novel during my Sit Down and Write 8 writing challenge and Camp NaNoWriMo this month (on which I had a MAJOR breakthrough last week...more on that over at Stories Inside), studying for a test I have to take by Friday for a new work at home job I'm trying to get, and doing work for my two clients, the reading I have to do has kind of snuck up on me. Gah! I'm exhausted just reading this.

Anyhoo, you see my stack at the top. Let me break it down...

I have to read a large chunk of the Earthsea trilogy by Ursula K. Le Guin (I have the omnibus edition) for TuesBookTalk Tuesday night.

I'm reading Mayan Blue by Michelle Garza and Melissa Lason for a review on Friday at my horror blog, Castle Macabre. I can't wait to read this! I've heard some raves about it.

I'm going to get started reading 13 Ways to Look at a Novel and The Greenlanders, both by Jane Smiley. We're reading three Jane Smiley books for my Lit Collective group read (on Goodreads) in August. The third book is A Thousand Acres and damned if I can't find my copy. Grrr. I'll worry about that after the read-a-thon. lol

I'll be posting updates in our read-a-thon Facebook group, or on Twitter. #HSreadathon

Thank you for visiting and taking the time to comment. It means so much.

I apologize for word verification, but as soon as I changed the settings from only users with Google accounts, I started receiving a ton of spam comments...within one hour of changing the settings. The bots are on high alert apparently.

  1. I remember the days of starting school in early August when we lived in the Midwest. I can't decide which I like better, because now we go well into June.

    Good luck with all your reading this week, and thanks for hosting!!
