MY READ OF THE MONTH
It’s very close, having to choose between NOS4A2 and The Gunslinger, but I’m going for NOS4A2. The conflict between Vic McQueen and Charlie Manx, the creepy Christmasland, the whole idea of the inscapes, all of this made NOS4A2 a great read.
My total for this challenge is currently 3 books. So far I’ve read:
Beat the Backlist Bingo is making another appearance this year. I have no idea how many categories I’ll manage to complete but it’s a little extra to add to my challenge.
Standalone – The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow
A book with illustrations – NOS4A2 by Joe Hill – There is an illustration of the Christmasland advert that first attracts Bing Partridge’s attention, and it also has Vic’s various bikes and Manx’s Wraith between paragraphs. I could also have used this for the ‘map’ prompt as there’s the United Inscapes of America map as well.
Kept you up late reading (definitely not a book you can easily put down) – The Gunslinger (The Dark Tower #1) by Stephen King
From the 52 Prompts List…
You can find the complete prompts list here.
The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow – Standalone
NOS4A2 by Joe Hill – A book with illustrations
The Gunslinger (The Dark Tower #1) by Stephen King – Kept you up late reading
I’ve read 4 books so far this year.
- I’ve read a book that I’ve owned for absolutely ages in NOS4A2 by Joe Hill and can’t believe that I waited so long to finally pick it up.
- I went for a bit of mood reading in picking up the first of the Dark Tower books, The Gunslinger by Stephen King. I’ve talked for a while about wanting to reread this series and I was in the mood for something a little Weird West-ish so thought I’d begin.
- My Beat the Backlist challenge continues and both of the books mentioned above count towards this challenge and I‘ve managed to find bingo categories for them too.
- I’m continuing my monthly update posts to record my reading and any challenge progress.
So concludes February’s Reading Review. See you again next month.
