That’s me on the left. I am the annoying person who wakes up, on a daily basis, long before I “need” to. But who’s to say what is the appropriate amount of time that someone requires before leaving the house to begin their day? For me, I need to ample time to naturally wake up, where coffee only supplements the process. I prefer to be able to visit my top five websites before hitting the pavement:
So in the wee hours of the morning, I have been trying to discover my next great book love affair, and have been spending a lot of time on goodreads.com. I love a great website that allows you to thumb through specified content, sort of window shopping if you will, but also has the opening for a connection between users. Well here’s Me, growing in my Bookie status (not a scheister bookie who makes dollar deals in back alleys, but someone who loves a good book over almost anything else) going absolutely gaga over the Goodreads.com website.
I’ve been trolling through the listopia section of goodreads, and here’s what I’ve found:
I am so excited to tell you that I’ve finally pulled myself out of my finifugal funk!
I have read the first two novels in the “Matched” trilogy by Ally Condie, and had totally forgotten about the third installment, Reached because quite frankly I really fell out of love with the series. The first novel, Matched was beautifully written, the plot had an engaging tempo, and the cliffhanger begged to be completed. About five chapters into Crossed (Matched #2) I became a die-hard Society supporter; I stopped caring about whether Cassia, Ky, Xander, or Buffy, Biff, or Crusty found one another or got out of the chasm. Typical sequel trap: can’t live up to the first in the series, so just walk away. Silly me had forgotten that I auto-purchased Reached, so when I saw the title pop up on Goodreads, I decided to give it the Ferrari Five Chapter Tryout.
By tonight I should be able to make a clear assessment.
