What We're Reading

Time for another
post about what we're reading--
this time in haiku.

Just One Day (Just One Day, #1)

 Krispy is reading
Just One Day, which she really
enjoys quite a bit.

She hasn't read far,
though she likes the other books
by Gayle Forman.

another book that Krispy
is reading right now.

The voice is good and
it's well-written but the plot
isn't quite there yet.

Crewel (Crewel World, #1)
Then there's Alz reading
Crewel, which she really hates
but keeps on reading.

She's masochistic.
The book is Hunger Games
and Matched, with magic,

only a hundred
times more confusing, vague,
and nonsensical.

Someday, Alz will read
a good book and then you will
hear all about it.

                                                 Krispy has told her
                                                 to read Code Name Verity.
                                                 It may yet happen!

That's it for today.
Alz and Krispy must sleep now.
What are you reading?

LOVE THIS. Short and succinct and rhythmic! And when Alz reads Code Name Verity, I totally want to know what her reaction is. :D You must make this haiku a recurring feature!

Alz -- I've heard some not-so-great things about Crewel so I'm curious what you'll think of it. I guess I can look forward to a snarky review if you're not liking it so far?

I'd be curious what you think of Code Name Verity! I tried the sample but gave up because it was so slow and the situation was so implausible. There's no way her captors would let her waste so much time and materials writing about such boring and useless matters.

I just finished ALTERED and enjoyed it like one will enjoy a good action movie.
I'm curious about CREWEL, so I might put it on my list. :)
