ReBooWee: 3 Weeks Down, 6 More to Go

Hello ReBooWee participants,

I apologize for the late ReBooWee post. The last three days were crazy, so I hope you will forgive my late post. Here is a recap of my crazy days.

  • Reading
  • Bleeding miniature dachshund from a bump on his leg
  • 1 church orchestra performance
  • Bleeding miniature dachshund
  • Lame attempt at bandage
  • Trip to vet-surgery scheduled for Tues.
  • New and improved bandage
  • Reading
  • Neighbor open house
  • Bleeding miniature dachshund-new and improved bandage didn't work
  • Trip to Emergency vet
  • Well-bandaged dachshund
  • A few hours sleep
  • 3 church orchestra performances
  • Reading
  • Restful dachshund
  • Make family calendar
  • Reschedule surgery
  • Reading
  • Sleeping
  • Dachshund surgery
  • Dachshund-free day of shopping
  • Dachshund home with another bandage
  • Reading
  • Sleeping
  • Dachshund chews bandage off
  • Back to the vet
  • Dachshund gets fashionable cone, now he can't reach bandage.
Whew. I hope this whole thing doesn't keep repeating itself.

Anyway, I was able to finally get through my book for the week and I loved it. I read Victoria Hanley's YA book, Violet Wings. Here are 8 words/phrases to describe the book:
  • Fairies
  • Genies
  • Zaria
  • Enchanted-land
  • Evil-Fairy
  • Power
  • Friends
  • Good-vs-Evil
What did you read this week? Can you describe it in 8 words or less?

I read The Fire in Fiction by Donald Maass. Eight words or less? Hmmm.

Writing techniques
Do the unexpected
Use emotion, micro-tension

I read "The Eyre Affair: A Thursday Next Novel" by Jasper Fforde

In 8 words:
007esque, twisted, creative, witty, clever, brilliant, jocular, keen

Happy Reading,
Sarah

Looks like it was Donald Maass week. :-)
Sarah, I tried reading The Eyre Affair this summer and couldn't get into it. But based on your 8 words, I think I should try again.

Happy Reading.

I finished Pillars of the Earth (it took me more than a week, but I wanted to finish so used ReBooWee as an opportunity to finish it with a deadline).
