I have finished book two of my Once Upon a Time Challenge, Artemis Fowl, so three more to go. Yikes. Artemis Fowl was had it’s moments but I wasn’t overly thrilled with it. I hope my next book in the challenge will be more to my taste.
In other challenge news, I finally started reading a chunkster. I chose The Hummingbird’s Daughter by Luis Alberto Urrea. I’m enjoying this book so much. I feel like I could be sitting in my grandmother’s kitchen while she made hot chocolate and was recounting this story to me. I haven’t read anything set in Latin America in a long time and it’s just so nice to visit again.
As far as Don Quixote, well, let’s just say my plan to read about 50 pages a week hasn’t gotten off to a very good start. I’m only at page 45 but what I’ve read so far I’ve liked. I plan to continue just at a slow pace obviously.
I’m also reading another Inspector Banks novel, Innocent Graves, which is the eighth book in the series. I still have a ways to go before I catch up as there are 16 books in the series.
I’m off to read some more before going to sleep. Oh but which book do I read this evening? Such difficult decisions. Heh.
