  • I read a lot, and I have a lot of opinions, so I can't believe I haven't made a list like this before. If you are even a little bit like me or you want to get a peek into my psyche (you probs don't), these are the books to read.


Part Two!

Posted on March 2nd, 2010 by annakjarzab

You guys: I’ve made it through Part 1 of the Book That Shall Not Be Named Until God Knows When. This is a major achievement! I feel like I need a marching band to play “We Are the Champions” or something. I’m trying to be excited about the fact that I’ve gotten through this part without being totally depressed and overwhelmed by the second part, which is only 1/3 written and scares me.

Let me tell you the truth here: this book is slippery. The characters are slippery, what I want to say at any given moment is slippery, the words are slippery–I feel like I can’t get a hold of anything in this novel without something else just bounding off into the darkness. I miss that feeling of certainty I had with AUT, the fierce belief I had in it. I’m hoping that I’ll get something out of this book, too–if nothing else, a feeling of triumph that I can take a problem book and make it work in a way that I’m satisfied with.

Unrelated: I just put up something on the site that you might want to check out. Lauren, the model who portrays Carly on the cover of All Unquiet Things, wrote an essay about her experience posing for the cover that she generously let me post here. It’s really interesting (and hi-LOL-arious in parts), so go read it.

The book will be great. I believe that, so I guess you’ll have to, too! 😉
