Books 8 and 9 [Sep. 25th, 2009|02:37 pm]
NaNoReaMo ~ National Novel Reading Month


Book 8: Rebel Angels by Libba Bray, 548 pages.
The sequel to A Great and Terrible Beauty but unfortunately not nearly as good. It was as if Libba Bray tried to bite off more than she could chew - there were too many plot-lines, too many twists and even she seemed to have difficulties keeping it all straight, making it cluttered and confusing. I'll probably still read the last book in the trilogy as I like to finish what I start, but I'm not in any rush to do so.

Book 9: Prayer - Does it Make a Difference? by Philip Yancey, 395 pages.
Interesting book about prayer - why prayers sometimes are answered and sometimes aren't. I'm still processing it, so I'm not yet entirely sure what I think of it, but definitely well written.

Only 5 days left of the month. Looks like for the first time ever I won't make my goal :(

3509 / 5000 pages. 70% done!
