Bout of Books 10.0: Day Two Wrap-Up

Day two felt physically better then day one, thank you migraine meds and my trusty heating pad, and the reading wasn't quite as productive in number, but it felt a lot more productive for some reason.

Number of books read today: 2

Total number of books read: 3

The Purloined Letter by Edgar Allen Poe (started and finished - 25 pages)
The Walking Dead: Book Two by Robert Kirkman (started and finished - 304 pages)

Books currently-reading:
The Final Empire (Mistborn #1) by Brandon Sanderson (started - 104 pages)

Number of pages read today: 433

Total number of pages read: 1,068

The Purloined Letter was a quick read, that I mostly read in the hours of the morning that one might consider "the dead of night," because my head was throbbing and I was awake. It was - okay, I guess, interesting.

The Walking Dead: Book Two I started during Dewey's 24 hour read-a-thon, but I had to go back and reread those 20 pages or so, because I didn't remember really what had happened (it was about 4/5am I think). Anyway - it was alright, I gave it three stars. The thing with characters being killed off in this series is that I just don't care - they're not built up enough for me to care.

The Final Empire - Brandon Sanderson, friends, might just be my favorite author. I mean J.K. Rowling is just like Queen by now, and there are some other authors I really love, but - but Brandon Sanderson. If you haven't read any of his books - do it, do it now. I'd highly recommend The Way of Kings (I wish I could write a conceive review of that book, but it's too good), but if the length of that one scares you: The Rithmatist, Steelheart, The Emperor's Soul.

Or Misborn, I'm only 100 pages in and I already am loving it and know it'll definitely be one of my favorite books of this year. I"m constantly blown away by his books. Most of them tend to have magic systems and they're all so different and - just give him a try, you won't regret it. I'd write more, but I'm exhausted from my day of reading and I"m sure you've all heard the laments and praise to Sanderson. So just do it.

How did your day go? What are you currently-reading? And how are you feeling? Alright? Take a break, this is suppose to be fun - flailing not failing.

  1. Both of my first days were fantastic. :) Been having tons of fun and feeling great, with the exception of headaches both this morning and yesterday morning. Here's Today's Update.
