Spring Reading Reviewed


I confess. I played hooky yesterday. After finishing up one of the contest books I’m reading, I ran off to the movies. Again. This time to see a sci fi-ish big screen offering of a TV oldie – The Incredible Hulk. Not bad, though I thought the plot broke down in significant places during the last 30 minutes.

But this post is not intended to be a movie review. Instead I want to give my report—over a week old, which is appropriate since I signed up late as well—of my reading for Callapidder Days’ Spring Reading Thing.

Here was my list:

Amber Morn, Brandilyn Collins (Zondervan, 2008 )
Assassin’s Apprentice, Robin Hobb (Bantam Books, 1995)

    Ryann Watters and the King’s Sword Eric Reinhold (Strang 2008 )
    Symphony of Secrets, Sharon Hinck (Bethany, 2008 )
    Gilead, Marilynne Robinson (Farrar, Straus, Giroux; 2004)
    Any Bitter Thing, Monica Wood (Chronicle Books, 2005)
    Beyond the Reflection’s Edge, Bryan Davis (Zondervan, 2008 )
    DragonLight, Donita Paul (WaterBrook, 2008 )

    √√√√ Five books I am reading as a judge for a contest, hereafter to be referred to as contest book 1, contest book 2, contest book 3, contest book 4, and contest book 5 [Two were excellent. I’ll try to do some surreptitious review at some point].

Well, that’s a pretty sad completion list, I have to say. I did sneak in Chuck Black’s Sir Kendrick and the Castle of Bel Lione (Multnomah, but not much more.

I’m happy to report that I will be reading DragonLight next in preparation for Donita Paul’s CSFF Blog Tour later this month. This will be a special tour because Donita’s DragonKnight was the first book featured by CSFF Blog Tour two years ago.

As to Spring Reading? I’ll keep signing on as long as Callapidder Days holds these reading things. I love to read and my goal is to keep my nose in a novel. If I can tell other readers about the books I’m enjoying, all the better. Hopefully I’ll come closer to my goals this fall.
