RTW: We Wish...

Reading Song of the Day: "Wish You Were Here" by Incubus

It's Wednesday and we're ready for the companionship of road tripping with the lovely ladies of YA Highway!

This week they wanna know:

What was the best book you've read in October???

*sigh* If only we had the time to read!!!! Yes, we're technically cheating on this RTW post because we have not completed ANY books this month. We know...stop gasping so loud! Anyway, we thought we'd tell you what we wanted to read and hopefully when November rolls around we'll be able to participate in the best book RTW post forrealz.

What Pam wishes she can read:


I've started The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin, but with two part time jobs, one full time job, plotting for NaNo, and a demented puppy, I've yet to finish it. I also plan to read The Iron Queen, the third in Julie Kagawa's Iron Fey series. Oh yeah, and I'm hoping to Beta read The Blues for the cuz this month, too.

What Quita wishes she can read:

Like Pam, but w/out the two part time jobs, I've got way tooo much to do. SO, I started Kody Keplinger's Shut Out, but can't find the time to finish it :( I am hoping to read Sweetly by Jackson Pearce and also FINALLY take a look at Alica's fantasy manuscript.

We shall see how successful we are in fulfilling these wishes! What about you all--what was the best book you've read this month, or what are you trying to find time to read?

Well all the books that you are reading/want to read sound great, so I hope you get some down time to race through them! You two ladies are making the rest of us look bad with all you have going on!! <3

Oohh, the cover of Sweetly is freaky!

Katy said...

I agree with Jennifer... The cover of SWEETLY is absolutely amazing! I hope things calm down for you girls in November so you can get some reading done. :)

Alicia Gregoire said...

Good luck to reading during NaNo. I'm lucky if I can get one done!

Carrie said...

These look like great books. Hope you get time to read soon.

Rebecca B said...

I hear you--my WIP and my dayjob ate a lot of my reading time this month. Hope you get to read those awesome-sounding books soon!

Karla Nellenbach said...

right now, im trying to read DESTINED by PC cast, but the day job is interfering with that. bastards!

Kate Scott said...

No books this month, that just makes me sad. I'm sad for you girls. Please stop eating and sleeping, your bodies need literature. Literature I tell you.

Miss Jack Lewis Baillot said...

I read Goliath by Scott Westerfeld. Very good book.

*Sigh* I understand. The day doesn't give enough time for reading. 'Tis very sad.

A Bit Unlikely,
Jack

Really want to read Mara Dyer!

Pam Harris said...

Thank you for feeling our pain, peeps! Yes, October has been a very dark month for us without much reading. I think Kate's right--we need to give up sleep, because there's NO WAY we're giving up food. :)

OMG! I COMPLETELY feel you on not having time to read! I'm slightly annoyed that I don't have more time. I have been reading the same book for about a month now! That isn't like me at all. I think it's safe to say that I won't be making my reading goal for the year. :(
