It’s time for the first update &mini-challenge! For this mini-challenge I want you to tell me your favorite and least favorite movie adaptation of a book.


Update:

  • Total Books Read: 0
  • Total Pages Read: 139
  • Books Read Since Last Update: 0
  • Pages Read since last update: 139
  • Total time read: 2 hourse
  • How I’m currently feeling: Much more awake than before!

Mini Challenge:

  • Favorite book-movie adaptation: Gonna have to go with the Harry Potter Movies. Book to movie adaptations are hard to get right, but I think the cast of the movies is awesome and I love the detail from the books that they manage to squeeze into the movies.
  • Least favorite book-movie adaptation: Sahara by Clive Cussler. It was terrible and the casting choices were about as awful as you could get. And I know I’m not the only one who feels that way.

I’m not participating in the Wordle Challenge because I feel like crap ATM and I just want to read in bed. But here’s my current update:

It’s time for the third update & mini-challenge! For this mini-challenge I want you to bring out the inner writer in you with this writing challenge:

Write a story 100 words or less that contains ALL of the following words:

  • Shaman
  • Lime
  • Laser
  • Goat


 This. Is. Going. To. Suck. God I hope no one sees this. I suck at spontaneity.  And apparently I also suck at spelling that word.


Lindsay tapped her foot on the tile impatiently while waiting for her drink at the service bar. “Shaman! Hurry the hell up! I ain’t got all night! Table 23 is still waiting for their Laser!”

Shaman sauntered over to the bar, “What’s in a Laser?”

“Cranberry, sour mix, and vodka I think? Who cares? Just make something up.”

Shaman mixed the ingredients as fast as he could and added a wedge of lime to the rim of the glass. Lindsay picked up the tray, pivoted and then tripped over Horace, the resident goat. God waiting tables in a hick town sucked.

This update is coming a little bit late because I wanted to finish a full two hours first. I’m not going to participate in the link-up challenge for this one as I have already read AND reviewed Blood Red Road on this blog. I’m going to give some others a chance. But I will update you on my reading. Boring. I know.

  • Pages Read since last update: 110
  • Total time read: 2 hours
  • How I’m currently feeling: Wishing I was liking this book more. It’s long.
So far I have finished one book. And that book is The Enemy by Charlie Higson.

Again, I’m not going to participate in this next challenge. I’m super-duper tired and I don’t feel like thinking, and I don’t really want that book. Shame on me. But I will again post my update.
