Beginning of the Last Day of the Frightful Fall Read-a-thon



Friday evening I finished listening to Vicious Circle (Felix Castor #2) by Mike Carey while I was making dinner. I had about 3 hours left of listening time when the read-a-thon started Monday so I calculated that was about 92 pages to go. Felix is an exorcist who always gets in way over his head. I love how Michael Kramer does the voice for Juliet the demon, and the writing is great, there are awesome quotes all the time. One of my favorites from this one was something like "Down is a wonderful direction, once you try it, you just don't get back up again." I would say it's almost a Jim Butcher's Harry Dresden meets Monty Python, but darker. I recommend the series!


Still working on:

Fablehaven #4: Secrets of the Dragon Sanctuary by Brandon Mull - a fun YA fantasy series that I highly recommend. - This one will be my main focus today, I really hope to finish it, I'm over halfway, but still have just slightly less than 200 pages to go.

How to Read Maya Hieroglyphs by John Montgomery - Reading this for my own non-fiction challenge, I'm at location 744, which I think is about page 80, so that will be my starting point for the read-a-thon. Update: I'm now at page 105 on this one. - I'm guessing I won't be finishing this one today!

Previously Finished:

  3. I liked it, central victim is a young girl though, but the witty sarcastic voice is fun, and the characters are interesting. I'll be reading the rest of them. Michael Kramer did an excellent job of narrating.
