Well, today was rather unproductive. I stayed up way too late last night finishing Shattered Souls by Mary Lindsey, so it took me a while to get moving this morning -- then I got caught up in all the excitement of the Julie Kagawa Livestream. I still had a blast in the readathon, and I might have my own personal readathon for the rest of the week since I'm in the spirit ;)
I read half of The Iron Knight by Julie Kagawa today, and I'll probably stay up late again finishing it. I know it wasn't on my list, but it just hit NetGalley today and I almost hyperventilated.
Wicked Awesome Books asked us to play matchmaker with two characters from different books.
I think I would like to pair...
Ari from Darkness Becomes Her by Kelly Keaton
Cole from Linger by Maggie Stiefvater
They're both kind of wild and world-weary and a little bit broken, and neither of them would hesitate to give the other a kick in the butt when it was called for.
Books from Bleh to Basically Amazing asked us to recommend two books to her.
1. Any book: Chime by Franny Billingsley. You will never read another book like this one. It practically breathes magic and mystery and incredible language. Beautiful.
2. Favorite from the readathon: OMG THAT IS SO HARD. Forever by Maggie Stiefvater or The Iron Knight by Julie Kagawa...Forever or Iron Knight....Maggie or Julie....BUT I LOVE THEM BOTH SO MUCH! I guess, since I haven't finished The Iron Knight yet, I will go with Forever by Maggie Stiefvater. But really, you should read them both.
Last call to enter my mini-challenge! It ends at midnight EST.
