What are you reading this week?
The kids are sick this week so I have my day job plus looking after sick
kiddos plus bleaching everything they have come into contact with. But I
do lay down with them for 10 minutes at a time or so, so it's the
perfect time to break out a book of short stories.
I have gotten sucked into the Post-Apocalyptic Young Adult Birthmarked series. I am reading the second in the triology, Prized, right now. It's about a young midwife in a post-oil era when new societies with population problems have arisen. Of course the leaders are jerks and she needs to take them on. It feels more like Scott Westerfeld's Uglies series than The Hunger Games. The protagonist is a bit of a Mary Sue but her love interest is intriguing. He's kind of like Andrei in We The Living, which is my favourite novel of all time (I am not a Randist though!).
My kids are full-on into the Christmas spirit already! We are reading Magic Treehouse: Christmas in Camelot this week. It's been a while since we have delved into a Jack & Annie book and we missed them! Thanks to John at TheBookMineSet for the inspiration last week!
