Still deciding what to read for the name challenge...so far I have-
K-Keep Sweet by Greene (done)
R- The Red Tree by Kiernan (done)
I- Incarceron by Fisher (done)
S- Scorch Trials by Dashner (not until October)
T-The Tale of Halcyon Crane by Webb (done)
E-Eighty Four Charing Cross Road by Hanff (done)
I think I'm going for a re-read of Into the Forest for my last "I". It will be the third time I have read it in 10 years. I love to discover, again, why I loved it the first time. Sometimes, though, books do not hold up and I do not love them as much on a second read. That and time constraints keep me from re-reading more often.
I finished Horns and it was a little draggy. I think Hills skills improve every time I read him, but I didn't care for the main character. The story was more of a murder mystery with supernatural elements than a supernatural story with a secondary plot of a murder. It was still good, but I thought it was a little too much.
I found the Red Tree online as an ebook and started reading it, but after a couple of hours, I was glad to find my library owned it in book form. Staring at the screen for that amount of time really hurt my eyes. I am never going to be an ebook person. I'll take my good old books anyday.
Kiernan is a really imaginative writer, and I have never heard of her before. I'm glad I found her!
