I could quit until April if I wanted . . .
Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman
Escape by Carolyn Jessop with Laura Palmer
Armageddon Summer by Jane Yolen and Bruce Coville
3 / 12 books. 25% done!
I see an unintentional pattern in the books that I have read so far this year. Not one of them has only one author. I mean, Escape (Es-cape' . . . . *titters*) only has someone else's help in writing it as opposed to the other two that have two people writing sections of it to form a cohesive book. And it works. In all three cases.
I have to admit that Armageddon Summer is more juvenile than I remember it having been, but then all books are like that when you haven't read them in a while. You read them when the book would seem at your age level only to read it later and find that you have grown up. Not a bad thing. It simply means that you can read it again and hopefully remember what you loved about it when you first read it. But it is a good book.
Oh, and today I have just finished six of the seven things on my list of must-get-dones. Or goals. Whichever you prefer. The last one is going to be done here in a minute once I have posted this.
