Book Tuesday's

Hi y'all!  This week was another slow week in getting books and reading..

Here's what I read this past week:

Awakened by P.C. Cast and Kristen Cast
I Have been looking forward to this book for so long! I'm not really sure how I feel about it though.. I was excited to read it. but once I was done reading it I was left feeling a little disappointed and saddened.. It felt like the story didn't really go anywhere and what took the whole book to say could of been done in a few chapters.. But once I start a series I'm in it till the end.. Can't wait for the next book to come out!

Life's That Way: A Memoir by Jim Beaver
It feels wrong to say that I really enjoyed this book because of all the sadness involved with Jim's story. It was sad and I did cry severely, but I also enjoyed getting to see into the life of a great actor.

What I got from the Library:

Past Midnight by Mara Purnhagen

What I'm reading now:

The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting

I've also started a new challenge!

The 1st In a Series Challenge 2011 is being hosted by Katy over at A Few More Pages, and it's a challenge I can complete! Very simple, to read a certain number (or more) books that are the first of a series. Any genre, any publication year, they just have to be the first book of a series.

Guidelines for the 1st in a Series Challenge 2011

There are four different levels for this challenge that each participant can choose from:
  • Series Novice: Read 3 books that are the first in any series.
  • Series Lover: Read 6 books that are the first in any series.
  • Series Expert: Read 12 books that are the first in any series.
  • Series Fanatic: Read 20 books that are the first in any series.
I've already started this challenge, but have not gotten around to posting it yet.
Here are the books I plan to read for this challenge:

Glimmerglass by Jenna Black
Firelight by Sophie Jordan
Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr
Fallen by Lauren Kate
The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting
