I have added a new author page for Sandhya Menon author of From Twinkle, with Love and When Dimple Met Rishi. Reviews for both of her books have been posted as well.
Do you have an author you recommend that I work on next? Let me know in the comments.
I suppose I should start out by saying that I could not entirely remember what the A, E, and O stand for. I am fairly certain that they stand for Acceptable, Exceeds Expectations, and Outstanding. Although, that may just have something to do with my kids and their finals. I will update when the written exam rules comes out.
However, I am excited that I have decided that the first test that I will sit for is Transfigurations. Overall there are six texts that I can sit for. I am going to create TBR lists for each. . . But I have a hard time imagining being able to get through eighteen books in one month. I did do 30 once, so I suppose it is possible.
A Scanner Darkley is a science fiction book by Philip K Dick. I own it in audiobook. I wanted to read more by Philip K Dick, although I am not sure what I will think about this story.
I am currently on hold at the library for the audio version of Children of Blood and Bones by Tomi Adeyemi. According to their algorithm I should be receiving this book shortly before the challenge. This book is everywhere and I cannot wait to read it.
A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Mass is a Kindle book that I picked up when it was on sale. I have heard a lot about the series and have been meaning to read it forever.
I think this is a great line up, and I do not anticipate any difficulty in receiving my Transfigurations N.E.W.T. The only question now is what will I transform into. . . .
I have been really bad and planning out my books a month at a time. I decided that I would do something different and just let you know the next five books that I was planning on reading. These are books that I already have ready to read. I like knowing which book I plan on moving to next.
Wonder by R.J. Palacio
I have wanted to read this book for a while. I have it from the library and want to finish it before it is due back. Hopefully I will get to it before the nine days are up.
Turtles All the Way Down by John Green
This is another library book that is due next week. I may be pushing my luck to get this book on my TBR list since it is also due back in ten days. Both Wonder and Turtle All the Way Down are Kindle books, so again I am not actually sure I will be able to finish before it is due back.
The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
I heard about this series on the BookTube channel Readbyzoe. I decided to give the series a try. This is also a library book, but it is an audio book and not due for two weeks. I only have 30 minutes left on my current book. I have no doubt I will have this one finished before it is due back.
The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden
This is another audiobook. I read a lot by audio book now. It is easy to throw in earphones while I am working out on lunch. Also, my youngest daughter has started listening when I am driving. Sometimes I am actually able to listen while I am working on less intellectually stimulating parts of my job. This book was recommended by a co-worker. I have since heard it mentioned a few times. I am interesting in seeing my opinion on it.
Foundation and the Empire by Issac Asimov
I wanted to add at least one of my paper TBR books to my list. The second book in the Foundation book was the winner. It has also been on my TBR list the longest - so it is fair. I am actually excited to read it. I do not know why it has taken me so long to get it started.
In a way I am surprised by my list. I have been trying to read the completed works of authors, and most of these authors are new to me, or I have not really reviewed recently. I think as I work on catching up on my blogs a lot more of my books in the future will be repeat authors so I can build more author pages. Although, the N.E.W.T. Challenge will take precedence next.
Have you ready any of these books? What are your thoughts?
