Hey ya’ll! I am coming at ya with a “weekly” meme thanks to my friend Joe over @ Storeys of Stories! I really liked this idea because it is less commitment on my part (I don’t have to do it EVERY week, only when I start a new book) and gets me talking about books I have just started (or want to start very soon).
Straight from the horse’s mouth (if you will):
First Impression Friday will be a meme where you talk about a book that you JUST STARTED! Maybe you’re only a chapter or two in, maybe a little farther. Based on this sampling of your current read, give a few impressions and predict what you’ll think by the end. Did you think you’d love it and ended up hating it? Or did you think you’d hate it and wound up loving it? Or were you exactly right? I think what will really make this meme a lot of fun, is linking back to it from your review to say, “Look at how wrong I was!” OR “See? I knew it all along!”
This week I started:
The Toll by Neal Shusterman
Some of you may have noticed that this has been on my currently reading shelf for a little while already. The truth is that I am very slowly working my way through this book. It isn’t because the writing isn’t good, or that the book itself isn’t, because I am quite enjoying it so far. The problem is that a LOT of things are happening in my life right now, and most of my spare time is accounted for. So while I like and enjoy this book thus far, I don’t know how long it will take me to finish it. That being said, I do predict a 5 star rating at it’s conclusion. I do really enjoy this series and I am sad to see it end, but I am sure it will be epic.
