Total Pages Read Today: 233 pages

 

That page count is a tad low but work stuff came up. Same stuff will also eat up part of my day tommorow. My job is stressful right now. But my no TV commitment  for the week should help numbers improve. 

 

Read parts of five books for my challenges.  I can't read one book straight through unless it's  exceptionally riveting. I DNF'd Out of Sorts  cuz it had a dog death, an attempted suicide and just nastiness in the first 29 pages. Too much of a downer for me. Swapped it out with Written in Fire cuz I was just approved  on Netgalley over the weekend.  Being I just got it, it meets  "latest haul" challenge.  It also meets the "cover of fire" challenge. Wait, it's also a sequel finishing the Brilliance Trilogy- sooo I can also use it for the "sequel" challenge. Three challenges in one book? And it's a sequel I've been waiting for? A win if ever there was one. 

 

BTW the first two books in Marcus Sakey's Brilliance  Trilogy were amaaaazing for Scifi/Thriller fans. Please check them out.
