*grabs your hand and starts running* quick, date me, there’s no time to explain
It’s okay, Auders. I failed too. We succeeded in failing together.
I’ll also be doing the 52 books challenge, and my first book is (cue drumroll..)
Malala Yousafzai is a huge inspiration to me, and I am excited to kick off the year with her memoir/manifesto/novel. I’ve already started it, and it’s so good.
One of my favourite ideas she discusses is her fear of being attacked by the Taliban in the months before her attack. She always worried that she’d be jumped in a staircase near her house, and fantasized about beating her attackers with her shoe. She then comments that this act would only make her a terrorist, too.
I cannot believe this girl is my age, she is the epitome of “wise beyond years.”
So, I don’t know about Dighan, but I FAILED the 100 book challenge similar to the way I almost failed Calculus in high school. Therefore, I found some posts on reddit and have decided to embark upon the 52 books in 52 weeks (that’s a year for not math people like me). I’ll be keeping track of it more and hopefully keep motivated throughout the year.
Have a safe and magical new year!
Oh dear God. I’ve basically failed you all in the lack of books I’ve read this summer. I started and finished two (Wild and Mere Christianity-ill write about them later.) Other than that, I have lost so much time this summer.
My new goal, besides surviving my fall semester, is to have at least ten books read by the end of the year. I will regroup for 2014.
So I went to a book trivia contest and my reward was a free book. I picked the Lovely Bones and scorched through it.
I finished it yesterday and I’m still in that phase of “huh what is this over I am befuddled what is air.”
I thought it was excellent, although emotionally draining and kind of heartbreaking. Kind of like a normal episode of Doctor Who, but with a lot more rape and murder and other scary themes that should be touched upon a lot more in society.
Hey, Audrey, how’s camp? I hope you have lots and lots of fun and that you pick up a fantastic book in your adventures. <3
I LOVED IT. Even though the climax was a little hard to differentiate from the rest of the book, the dialogue is funny, brutally honest, and intriguing. I liked the unique perspective that is developed through the narration styles, and I do, indeed, recommend this book. :)
