A Couple of Read-a-Longs

Tuesday, September 9, 2014

I am notoriously bad at read-a-longs. I've joined many in my blogging years and finished very few (if any!) Even of the "Halloween" read-a-longs I've done with my husband I did not complete two (The Passage and Dracula). It's not for any specific reason except that I get bored at some point. But, I am going to try again, and I will actually follow through this time!

I am currently doing the read-a-long for The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell that is hosted by Trish @ Love, Laughter, Insanity. I haven't heard much about this book, but what I have heard has been AH-mazing. I picked up this book just recently and am through two chapters so far. This read-a-long is September 1st through 30th.

The second one I'm doing will be October 1st through 31st and is hosted by both Ti @ Book Chatter and Sandy @ You've GOTTA Read This for the book Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury. My husband is going to do this one as well (along with our read of Frankenstein which I mentioned before).

I'm looking forward to both of these! And I'm glad to be joining the read-a-longs of some of my favorite bloggers along with other fave bloggers who will also be reading!

Yay! So glad you two are going to join us! And I really want to read The Sparrow. If I can't finish "Wool" (now that I've watched all of American Horror Story), I am going to pick that one up next I think.

I loved The Sparrow -- I really like Ray Bradbury, too, but I haven't read Something Wicked This Way Comes yet.

I am almost done with The Sparrow and not sure how it's going to end. It's nerve wracking!!

Can't wait for Something Wicked. It's been so long since I've read Bradbury.
