Am I Insane? Or, Sure! I Can Read All These Books In A Month!

So, I get a little gung-ho about things. Right now, it’s the author list for the Austin Teen Book Festival. It appears that I have some catching up to do in the reading department. Even though I have read quite a few books this year, I have somehow missed out on (gulp) most of these written by authors coming to the Fest. As I can be described as “over-enthusiastic” concerning some things and “rabid” about others, I am trying to read as many of these books as I can by September 29. Come along for the ride (and updates) and please keep all arms, legs and optimism inside the vehicle at all times.

Obviously, some books have not been published yet (those are the TBR dates), so I might not be able to read any published in September before the Festival. I will read a previous novel by the same author so I can get a feel for something they have written. If the book on this list is part of a series, I will at least read the first book of the series and try my best to get to all of them. Our great library does not have all of these titles, so maybe I can get loaners from my close & personal book readin’ pals?

I will be posting little dispatches as I read my books; however, I won’t be able to do more than rate and blorp out something uncommunicative and ultimately unsatisflying. Yay? I hope y’all understand.
