Here it is, Tuesday, and I've almost finished my Friday Five challenge. I'm about half-way done with Once Was Lost by Sarah Zarr, which I'll finish tonight. I did have to make one slight adjustment: Matched by Ally Condie didn't arrive when I expected it, so I read Dragon Heir by Cinda Williams Chima instead. I'm totally okay with that as I've been meaning to read Cinda's book since it first came out. I'll just have to read Matched when I get it.
I've loved reading all these books, but this experiment reminded me why I hated reading assigned books in school. While it exposed me to great books, I resented having to read them on someone else's terms. I know this was just a self-imposed assignment, but I would have much preferred to read these books at my own pace. I guess I'll have to keep that in mind the next time I'm tempted to let my reading list go untouched for too long.
Now on to my Banned Book Week books. What are you reading this week?
