Ravenmount 365 Days of Books: Week 1

I decided that for 2016 I am going to read 365 books, and each one will get its own post on my Ravenmount Books tumblr site. So far, so good. My week for the sake of this project ends Wednesday night, since I go to the library every Thursday, and turn in whatever library books I have finished then. For the first week of 2016 (Jan 1-6), which was not quite a full week, I read-

Book 1 – There’s No Place Like Here, by Cecilia Ahern (My tumblr post, goodreads) – retelling, somewhat, of the Wizard of Oz

Book 2 – The Giver, by Lois Lowry (My tumblr post, goodreads) – excellent post-apocalyptic dystopian fantasy, often shelved as juvenile/YA in libraries, book 1 of the Giver quartet

Book 3 – Slice Harvester: A Memoir in Pizza, by Colin Atrophy Hagendorf (My tumblr post, goodreads) – a memoir by a guy in the punk subculture, who set out to sample one slice of plain cheese pizza from every pizza-place in New York City.

Book 4 – The Christie Curse, by Victoria Abbott (My tumblr post, goodreads) – Mystery/crime novel about a search for a fabled lost play by Agatha Christie, book 1 on a series

Book 5 – Embolus, by Gary Birkin, M.D. (My tumblr post, goodreads) – Not recommended. Medical thriller, slow/tedious/boring, and needed more editing.

Book 6 – Gathering Blue, by Lois Lowry (My tumblr post, goodreads) – excellent post-apocalyptic dystopian fantasy, often shelved as juvenile/YA in libraries, book 2 of the Giver quartet
