118 books down, 118 days to go.
Echo is a confusing book about a young girl trying to figure out her life. Tons of view shifts, and I suppose if you like reading depressing books about modern LA and Hollywood, and even New York, it's good. For me, despite the references to fantastical creatures, it didn't hold anything special.
The Amaranth Enchantment, on the other hand, is a must read. I feel like I'm trying to sell something here...anyway, Lucinda lost everything when her parents died. Ten years later, the past comes back to haunt her. A complete spin-around of a fairy-tale, with bits and pieces of all of the most well-known stories. The ending was what sold it for me. The author is more than willing to put her characters in embarrassing situations, and yet make you smile all throughout the last page.
So, 118 books down, 118 days to go...same number. Ironic, to say the least...keep on reading!
