Amy &amp; Roger&#8217;s Epic Detour by Morgan Matson

I finished this book over the course of one weekend. I missed this kind of feeling - progress, that is. It&#8217;s been a while since I felt really accomplished after reading anything, since most of what I read these days are excerpts for acads, or really long critical essays that aren&#8217;t necessarily under the umbrella of &#8220;easy, relaxing reading.&#8221;

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling

I decided to read the book again after watching the last installment of the Harry Potter film franchise (tears). I finished it in about four days, (that&#8217;s actually two weekends, because I left it at home when I went to the dorm for school) and quite honestly I haven&#8217;t finished anything like that so quickly in a while. Lately all I&#8217;ve been reading are for acads (lit theories or references for thesis) and it certainly is refreshing to be this excited about a novel again - and one so close to my heart and childhood, at that. Will do Deathly Hallows once I get my hands on a copy.
