Lazy Sunday Thoughts: It's Getting Hot in Here
I did finish Pocketful of Names for the Spotlight Series on Graywolf tour. I enjoyed it but I'm still thinking about what I'm going to say about it. Stay tuned.
Two new books came in the mail this week: Damaged by Pamela Callow and The Bells by Richard Harvell. They both look interesting.
I'm also listening to Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins on audiobook. I'm not enjoying it as much as Hunger Games and I suspect it's because it is an audiobook. What I mean is, I read Hunger Games and had a definite idea of how Katniss sounds. Listening to Catching Fire is a strange experience because the narrator doesn't make her sound like I imagined. It throws me off every time she speaks.
I wonder if listening to a sequel after reading the first book is a good idea. What do you think? Have you had this experience?
