Debutathon: Day Two Summary

The Rosie ProjectDay two of the Debutathon, hosted by Books of Amber. I started The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion, another ebook that has been on my to-read list for a while. It is a little strange, and I very nearly put it down a couple of chapters in. But I persevered, and I’m actually really enjoying it. I managed to read 62% on Friday, and I’m sort of addicted.  Told from a male perspective of a guy with Asperger’s who doesn’t know it (I think), the writing style takes some getting used to, but the story is so sweet! 

Unfortunately today I don’t have time for the minichallenge but I will hopefully be back in swing tomorrow. I hope to finish The Rosie Project by the end of Sunday. I don’t read much on weekends, but fingers crossed!

Debutathon: Day One Summary

So yesterday was the first day of the Debutathon, hosted by Books of Amber. I decided to choose one of the books from my original list, Find Me by Romily Bernard. I’ve had an ebook of this for a little while, but I’m not very good at reading ebooks on time! So I thought I would hit two birds with one stone and try and get through my ebooks as well! 

Find Me

 

 

I’m pleased to say that I managed to start and finish the book yesterday. I have quite a big commute, so I’m hoping to be able to match this today. I really enjoyed the book, and am hoping to write up my review at the weekend. The ending was amazing, so much so that I had to finish it when I got in, after an hour of reading on the train. 

It took me forever to unscramble these titles. I don’t know if it is how different people’s brains work, or the lack of spaces, but this took me forever! 

1. IIDFEOFYUNM (4 words) IF YOU FIND ME
2. TAREDEL (1 word) ALTERED
3. TPNPOOITIV (2 words) PIVOT POINT
4. HCITAGRL (1 word) ARCLIGHT
5. NPOSIO (1 word) POISON
6. TSIPDENLER (1 word) SPLINTERED
7. ITSEHTELE (2 words) THE ELITES

As I’m writing this before work, I have yet to start another book, so I’m going to use yesterdays for this challenge. So the song that I think represents Find Me is Running Up That Hill by Placebo. Basically in the book Wick and her sister are hiding from their dad. Wick receives a diary of her old best friend before learning she has committed suicide. It is up to Wick to unravel her story. The book itself is quite creepy and thriller-like in places, and I think the song represents it quite well. 

It doesn’t hurt me.
You wanna feel how it feels?
You wanna know, know that it doesn’t hurt me?
You wanna hear about the deal I’m making?
You be running up that hill
You and me be running up that hill

And if I only could,
Make a deal with God,
And get him to swap our places,
Be running up that road,
Be running up that hill,
Be running up that building.
If I only could, oh…

You don’t want to hurt me,
But see how deep the bullet lies.
Unaware that I’m tearing you asunder.
There is thunder in our hearts, baby.
So much hate for the ones we love?
Tell me, we both matter, don’t we?
