(31) Delirium and (32) Pandemonium – Lauren Oliver
Oh my, do I really have to wait another year for the final book? When I started the first book, Delirium, I wasn’t sure I liked the series but I finished off Pandemonium (Book #2) in a single evening. The second book is just so captivating and completely made up for any similarities between the first book and The Forest of Hands and Teeth. Maybe it is just another teenage novel series but I just couldn’t stop reading!
(33) The God of Small Things – Arundhati Roy
This was our latest book club pick. It took me forever to read until I just committed to reading and finished it off in large chunks. Some books are just easier to read when you read them in big sections and this was one of those. I didn’t really enjoy the story, although I thought the language was very good and there were quite a few nice lines in the story.
(34) Dandelion Fire – N.D. Wilson
This is the second book in the series that I started last month with 100 Cupboards. It took a little bit to get into this story – there were lots of different stories going on at the same time with all the different characters – but it came together at the end and was quite good. It answered a few of the questions from the first book but left lots to figure out in the final book.
(35) Dragonflight – Anne McCaffey
Sometimes I pick out books by just browsing the available Ebooks on the library site. Sometimes it works out well (think 100 Cupboards Series) and then sometimes it doesn’t – like this book. It’s in no way a terrible book but I really didn’t enjoy it.
I picked up Divergent, The Snow Child and The Club Dumas from the library for our vacation reading. I also put tons on my eReader and there is nothing like flying and waiting in an airport to really get a lot read!
