16052012: Bout of Books Read-a-thon Day 3

I stayed up late last night to finish reading Specials by Scott Westerfeld which took me 29 minutes for the last 64 pages. After I’ve posted this post, drank a cup of tea and had some breakfast I am going to read Intangible by J. Meyers, I’m aware this wasn’t originally on my list for this read-a-thon but I don’t want to put it off because I hadn’t listed it and because I’m at my boyfriends and left all my other books at home. Ooops. Hooray for taking my kindle everywhere with me for back up. In fact I think some of the books I did list are on my kindle but I’m too excited to finish this one to care. Whilst waiting for my breakfast to be ready I read 43 pages of Channel Zero by Brian Wood for 12 minutes. Breakfast was yummy, but Intangible is even yummier, still drawn to Jonah even though I’m not 100% sure where he lies, I’ve read 19% more of it in 53 minutes

The mini-challenge for today is being hosted by Books Devoured and we have to choose any book cover and Re-Title it! You can choose anything you like and go the serious or humorous route!
The RoadSo I decided to select a book from my currently reading pile which is 10 books high. I went with The Road by Cormac McCarthy simply because its a marmite book – you love it or hate it. I’ve read 5 pages, if that, and part of the latter group but I WILL not give up. It may be sitting on hold for a while but one day I will get to it, one day. *nods* I promise.

From what I’ve read and seen (I caved and watched the movie as I was supposed to read it for a book club last year) I’ve chosen to Re-Title it too…

The Journey of Death.

  1. Yay! You finished your first book! How did you like Specials? I've always loved the Uglies series, such an interesting dystopian world.

    It does kind of look like they're out on a journey to die, doesn't it? lol Good choice.

    Good luck today!

  2. I enjoy the storyline for all of the books but I can't help but constantly feel annoyed with Tally and Shay. I just can't stand them and how they always are with each other. I mean I know it has to do with all the operations they keep having but I just can't make myself like them. I like David and Zane, Peris is kind of likeable I guess now he's grown a little more.

    It totally does!

    Good Luck to you too.

  3. Don't worry I've been reading a lot not on my list too, but mine was because I had all these goals of books I wanted to get read before the bout of books started and I didn't get them done in time and well even though bought of books is going on they still need to get read so I'm doing a little of both. I've heard really good things about the I guess it's called the Uglies series right? Obviously I haven't read it yet but I hope you enjoyed it and that you're enjoying Intangible as well :)

  4. I have read The Road, having won a copy of it in a drawing at college a few years ago. I did like it, but I can definitely agree with your re-titling of it!!

  5. Yeah I'm very bad at restricting myself to certain books which is why I am currently part way through 12! Its terrible. I just want to read everything at once ha.

    I guess that is what its called, well on the book its called a trilogy but now there is a fourth book so that doesn't work any more.

  6. My heart swoons for Tennant :) or as Billie Piper called him – and God bless her – Ten-inch

    I'm still a little disappointed with Matt Smith but I don't know if its cause I loved Tennant so much *o*

  7. Really? I always assume I read slowly, I've slowed down compared to how I used to but thats cause I know I need glasses and I have to take time to concentrate and make sure its well lit.

    I may read it when you read it and we can compare opinions :P
