Whatever Wednesday

It’s Whatever Wednesday and I thought we would do something fun–a book reading challenge. The Booktubers over on Youtube, are doing their yearly challenges, so I thought we would join them.
Here are the rules: read seven books, in seven days. There will be seven challenges in those seven days. You can mix the challenges, as long as you still read seven books, in seven days.
Challenge one–read a book whose author has the same first letter of his/her last name as yours.
Challenge two: read a book with the color green on the cover.
Challenge three: read a book that you can read in one day.
Challenge four: read a book written by your favorite author.
Challenge five: read a book that someone else recommended.
Challenge six: read a fairytale that has been rewritten, example: Cinder.
Challenge seven: read a book that has some kind of historical fiction in it, example: Shades of Gray, by Carolyn Reeder.
You can do this anytime. Expand your horizons and have fun.
See you tomorrow for Thriller Thursday. I’m excited! I will be blogging about Mary Higgins Clark.

Remember, whichever books you read, please leave reviews.


Thriller Thursday

It’s Thriller Thursday. Doesn’t the word “Thriller” make you want to break out in Micheal Jackson mode. Confession–it gets me every time. So, I was trolling the Thriller section and found a book that is a little mix of dystopian and thriller. I know we just had Dystopian Tuesday, but most young adult books are really mixing in the dystopian. The Hunger Games broke brains.
Anyway, I have found a very interesting book: Floor 21. It was written by Jason Luthor, who is a fellow Texan. He lives in Houston and I hope is staying safe from all the flooding. Jason used to be a sports journalist and has written pieces for Blizzard Entertainment. Having a son, who wants to be a game programmer, I knew who Blizzard Entertainment was immediately. I’m hip that way.
Floor 21 is about a girl named Jackie, living in a tower. (Rapunzel, anyone?)
As humanity lives out the remainder of its existence at the top of an isolated apartment tower, young Jackie dares to question Tower Authority and their ban on traveling into the tower’s depths. Intelligent and unyielding, Jackie ventures into the shadows of the floors below. But will her strong will and refusal to be quiet—in a society whose greatest pride is hiding the past—bring understanding of how humanity became trapped in the tower she has always called home, or will it simply be her undoing?

Sounds great, doesn’t it?

Remember, if you purchase Jason’s book, please leave a review. Also, head over to Jason’s Facebook page and give him a Like.
