"That was Chris Rodriguez!" Annabeth took off her cap and turned visible. "You remember - from Cabin Eleven."

- The Sea of Monsters

I have no life. (Spoiler warning: Young Wizards || PJ & O, in that those are wiki links)

This book's going kind of slowly, and not just because I have to be by Pewter to read it. I can't shake the feeling that Rick Riordan is patronizing me. My fault for juggling books with very different styles, maybe?

Meanwhile, my brain has also latched onto Tom and Carl so hard, I'm a little embarrassed. The Book of Night with Moon is also going much more slowly than the others. I'm enjoying it, but I keep having to look up translations in the back and it's sort of forcing me to think more human in order to understand it. I'm not sure it should be compared to Watership Down. After enough time with that, I felt like I was thinking in rabbit, but thinking feline is still very mysterious.

I blew through The Hunger Games last night into this morning. It was a dumb time to begin since I knew I wouldn't be putting it down once I started, but I couldn't resist.

Faye, you were right. I did love it. I wish I'd read it as soon as you told me to. And everything I've been hearing about it from what seems to be everywhere - it's all true. I had high expectations, and so far, they've been met. Hooray. I want to talk about it! But I should probably finish the trilogy first.

Now I need to find some way to get at Catching Fire and Mockingjay, hopefully without the mini-adventure through the backrooms of the library. We just went two days ago, and also a few days before that. Mom is going to make :| faces at me if I suggest another trip so soon, but I don't have a car.

Meanwhile, I've finished the YW books I borrowed (still missing on Holiday and Mars), but I still have The Book of Night with Moon and To Visit the Queen, which I will get to as soon as I get some proper work done.
