livin' it up: sunday salon style :)

Oh, what a nice sunny Sunday day for Sunday salon :)
How is your reading going?
Mine is going just dandy, thank you!!
Here is what I have read and reviewed this last week:
(click to take you to my review)

Immortal by Traci L. Slatton
Watership Down by Richard Adams
March by Geraldine Brooks

Out of the above reads my faves were Watership Down and Half A Yellow Sun, no question!

b: Just started the Roy book today and it's progressing pretty well. It's an odd book, but intriguing and holding my interest thus far.

This past week's favorite: Johnny Tremain by Esther Forbes.

Janeology is once removed from my next book. I can't wait to read your review. I've also had The God of Small Things has been on my TBR for such a long time. I'm eventually going to get to it during the Book Awards Challenge II. Just as soon as I get out from under my ARCs. :)

The God of Small Things took me a couple of tries to get into when I read it several years ago, but I agree: it's great!

Also, I am so in the mood to reread Watership Down. I just saw it referred to in Wait Till Helen Comes, a YA ghost story, and now on your blog. I think that's almost a sign to pick it up, don't you? ;)

I'd love to read Janeology too. It's been on the list for ages-I really need more of me. My fave last week was Nefertiti and I just finished Professors' Wives' Club which I loved. This week is The Heretic Queen, Safety of Secrets-just among a few. lol. Have a great week Bethany.

I'm reading a great anthology called The Faery Reel edited by Terri Windling and Ellen Datlow. I think I may have discovered some new favorite authors because of it!

Oooh, Watership Down. I loved the movie, and I've always wanted to read it!

Hey Bethany,

While I certainly envy your reading and reviewing prowess, I just can't keep up with that kind of a pace! Right now I'm reading Roberto Bolaño's "2666" and Rodrigo Fresan's "Mantra" (both great) for your world-famoso OT Challenge, but me making my way through 1600+ pages in Spanish is sort of like reading double that amount in English. In other words, I might not have another OT Challenge review for you until...well, you do the math. ¡Saludos!
