Today’s writing assignment asked us to start our post with a quote. So here it is. (Yep, just like that. No long-winded intro this time).
So many books, so little time.
― Frank Zappa
That’s so true! The list of books I want to read is as tall as a skyscraper. Or at least that’s how tall I imagine it to be, since I don’t have the actual books to stack. My list is completely digital. Thanks to Goodreads I can keep adding books to my list and not have to worry about tripping on them.
Also thanks to Goodreads…I have way too many books on my to-read list! Sure, I had this problem before, but now that I have all these suggested books popping up out of nowhere, my list is unmanageably long. I’m going to need to live until I’m 200 to read them all.
That said, I’m trying to decide which book off of the list to read next. That’s were you come in (I knew having you around would be good for something).
I’m going to list a few books, and you get to tell me what you think about them. If you’ve read them, tell me what you thought about it. If you haven’t read it, comment anyway (I’m not going to exclude you from the fun). Tell me which one, based on the description or cover, looks most interesting.
Ok? Ok! Here are the books.
The Seven succeeding Elven Lords of Allyra were dead, lost in the Siege of Berinfell as babes. At least that’s what everyone thought until tremors from a distant world known as Earth, revealed strange signs that Elven blood lived among its peoples. With a glimmer of hope in their hearts, sentinels are sent to see if the signs are true. But theirs is not a lone errand.
Katsa has been able to kill a man with her bare hands since she was eight – she’s a Graceling, one of the rare people in her land born with an extreme skill. As niece of the king, she should be able to live a life of privilege, but Graced as she is with killing, she is forced to work as the king’s thug.
Humans and androids crowd the raucous streets of New Beijing. A deadly plague ravages the population. From space, a ruthless lunar people watch, waiting to make their move. No one knows that Earth’s fate hinges on one girl.
What do ya think?
