It feels good to summarize my reading after doing a readathon. I had a couple of so-so reading weeks and then finished two books on Saturday.
Maus couple of weeks back, for the second time and loved it more than I did, the first time, if that's even possible. I read it slower the second time and discovered a lot of new things. Soon after, I picked up the "Maus encyclopedia", MetaMaus, which was a treasure to read! If any of you are Maus fans, you should read this one too. In addition, I finished Quarantine (quite good) by Rahul Mehta and The House on Mango Street (just okay) by Sandra Cisneros.
Next in the list
I'm a quarter of my way through Monsters of Men, which I'm enjoying. The Chaos Walking series has been a lot of fun to read, even though it's taken me awhile to get to it. I'm waiting to pick up The Perks of Being a Wallflower next. This is another book that's got a lot of positive vote.
