Reading Roundup – 25 October 2013
Reading Roundup / October 25, 2013

I think my reading of House of Hades must have infected me with some demigod ADHD because I am trying to read no fewer than four books at the same time.  Sigh.  So many great books, so little time. I couldn’t decide what audiobook to listen to at work so I used a random number generator to help me choose.  The selection landed on The Meryl Streep Movie Club by Mia March.  For those of you who don’t know, this is set in the same world as Finding Colin Firth but written and set earlier.  So far I’m enjoying it – I loved the setting and the characters are relatable.   A full review will come shortly. After listening to a few chapters though I realised I was more in the mood for some YA dystopia, so I picked up Alexandra Bracken’s The Darkest Minds.  I’d been hooked by the preview on Bracken’s website and I am continuing to enjoy it.  Ruby seems an interesting, if damaged character, and I look forward to reading more of her story.  Again, expect a full review soon. I had been asked to review Paul Levine’s State vs. Lassiter so I have added it to this…
