Hour 18 of #readathon *blear*

I think I may have actually reached the peak of insanity at this point. Normal people just don’t do this reading for a whole day thing.

Okay, so the next challenge is from I Just Wanna Sit Here and Read and she wants us to pitch our current read. I need a red phone to all authors to help with this. What Am I reading? Oh yeah… If your name is Maria Hooley, answer the phone. Oh wait. That ringing I hear is from the coffee drink… wheeee!

Okay, Focus!

I am reading a really good YA novel called October Breezes by Maria Hooley currently. While I admit that the first half of the book moves pretty slow, now that I’m 85% in, I can see that it was necessary to get the character development needed for a novel of this depth. This book is on the serious side, dealing with teen dating, rape and pregnancy and has some hot button issues, but the writing and the realism that the author manages to capture makes it mesmerizing to read. I cannot put it down now that I’m at a critical point in the story… speaking of which… back to reading!

(oh, that’s kind good, I need to keep that for when I do the real review… like I’ll ever find it again in the mess that is this blog right now! Wow!)
