I haz been exercising my library card. What haz you been doing?
So the short version is that I'm reading 50 books this summer, because I am crazy. And I've already talked about books 1-6, so here are my most recent reads with representative lolcats because why not.
7. Monument 14 by Emmy Laybourne
This is an apocalypse book about a bunch of kids stuck in a store during, well, an apocalypse. Except you don't know a whole lot about the apocalypse because they've locked themselves inside, so I think the summary might be a little misleading. It's more about how the kids deal with the stress of being locked up together with little info about their families. At least they didn't get stuck in a shoe, because that would have been embarrassing.
8. Jane and the Unpleasantness at Scargrave Manor by Stephanie Barron
I've read a lot of Jane Austen inspired stuff, including the one where Jane is a vampire (still not entirely sure what I think of that), so I figured I'd give the Jane Austen as detective series a try. I'm not sure I buy the Jane-ness, but I enjoyed the mystery, so I'll pick up the next one.
9. Doomsday Book by Connie Willis
I spent the first 50 pages not knowing what the heck was going on, and the last 50 pages frantically reading to find out what was going to happen. The middle of this time travel drama was a total blur. Highly recommended to people who like a big old slice of life with their sci-fi. The confusing bits will eventually start to make sense, although you really start wishing people in the future had cell phones.
10. Theodosia and the Serpents of Chaos by R.L. LaFevers
THIS BOOK IS HAPPY MAKING. I had a huge Egypt mania when I was a tween, and I would have loved the crap out of this book and walked around pretending I was Theodosia sleeping in her sarcophagus and undoing ancient Egyptian curses. (Yeah, so I'm not a tween anymore, but I still did it anyway.)
What are you reading, and do you have any lolcats for it? :)
