I have come to the conclusion that I will not be posting my Riot review. I know, I'm bummed too. Why? Because I want to just read, read, read and when the read-a-thon finishes I want to sleep, sleep, sleep! I will say this, I liked Riot (which is about the 1863 Brooklyn Draft riots) and I give it a 4/5. It's written like a play which made for an interesting read.
My progress: I'm now reading in my family room since it's warmer than in my room. I finish my read-a-thon at midnight tonight (remember I started last night). I've actually been up for 48 hours due to the fact that I started reading late after school. I'm really enjoying all the books I've read, I got lucky in that I only seemed to have picked good ones!
1. Sacajawea by Joseph Bruchac. Nice read, not my favorite, but eye-opening.
2. Jumped by Rita Williams-Garcia. Excellent. She is a great author!
Currently reading: Chameleon by Charles R. Smith. Very good so far, I'm thinking of summer!
I don't think I'm going to get to Ash or Perfect Chemistry (because Chameleon is a bit of a long read and I just started) which makes me sad :( but I will definitely read them before/over break!
Thanks again everyone for all the support and encouragement, it means a lot knowing that people are rooting for me!
