My Last YA-Book-A-Day

I have to admit, I skipped Friday.  I started reading something but didn't finish it until Saturday night, so I missed a day.  No big whoop.

Saturday's book, then, was Fresh Off the Boat by Melissa de la Cruz.  Loved the cultural perspective but overall wasn't too excited about the book.

Sunday, in honor of its 10th Anniversary of publication, I read Sloppy Firsts by Megan McCafferty.

I stayed up until 1:15 to finish it.  Now here's the problem with saving that particular book for last: I really, really, really want to read Second Helpings and Charmed Thirds.  And WAIT!  There are two more after that!   Fourth Comings and Perfect Fifths!  I had no idea.  I'm captivated by the story and the characters and more than a little amused at the cultural references to the Y2K era.

Sadly, the Jessica Darling series must wait.  I have many other books that require my attention at this time, including my own. 

When I got home from my first day back at the office, Hammer Guy asked (somewhat sadly), "Are you still going to try to read a book a day now that your vacation is over?"

I wish.


  1. I've heard of those! They sound pretty fun!

  2. Hey, just wanted to stop by to tell you I gave you an award! It's over at my blog. ^_^

  3. Just saying hi from your Cont/Mainstream Group over at the Campaign.

    To read a book a day? Ah, that sounds like Heaven to me... :)

  4. Good Grief! A book a day?! My husband would scream. ; )
    I'm from the Campaign and in your Contemp/Mainstream group. I'm following you now.See you around.

  5. Hello, fellow campaigner! I'm not in your group (but I am a YA author), but I still wanted to check out your blog and say, "HI!"

    I applaud your reading efforts! :)

  6. I'd love to read a book a day. During my fast reading days, I can average a book every two days.

    I'm a fellow campaigner and new follower dropping by.

  7. Hi Sara, I'm visiting from the Campaign list (Contemporary/Mainstream). What a wonderful challenge to have imposed on yourself, and what a great way to spend a vacation!

  8. Hi Sara! It's great to read a book a day. The fastest I have ever read a 350 page novel is 6 hours. Love the Underwood typewriter photo too. Stopping by from your literary fiction group to say hello;)

  9. A book a day! Wow, this dyslexic could never do that, although if i get really into a book I do have a hard time putting it down.
