Marcia is Amused.

Aug 01 2012
What I read in July:
The Path to the Spiders’ Nest by Italo Calvino
Dune by Frank Herbert
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
The Books of Rachel by Joel Gross
The Chaperone by Laura Moriarty
Grim by Anna Waggener
Matched by Ally Condie
Crossed by Ally Condie
Uglies by Scott Westerfield
Pretties by Scott Westerfield
Specials by Scott Westerfield
Feed by M.T. Anderson
Life as We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer
Unwind by Neal Shusterman
Cinder by Marissa Meyer
I read all month. I’m considering all Y/A books to be research. My sister, the librarian, gave me a list and I’ve been plowing through it. I loved the Uglies/Pretties/Specials and read those in about 36 hours. I’m furious that the sequel to Cinder doesn’t come out until 2013. Matched/Crossed were very good. However, I don’t think I’m going to read the sequel to Unwind. Grim was written by a friend’s friend and eh.
Non-Y/A books this month: Dune was, obviously, fabulous. I can’t believe I took this long to finally pick it up. Gone Girl was as gripping and intense and well written as everyone says.
GoodReads says I’m 10 books ahead of my challenge to read 100 books in 2012, 68 so far. Be my friend there.
Page stats: 26,558 read this year, 5,672 this month. I will not be able to keep up this pace.
