Bout of Books Day 3 Update and Mini-Challenge

 ad16a-xln7jszjmdcz4ymfigl3rlpa0fxagl1hqkq6me5jsus200-no
It’s Day 3 of Bout of Books and, even though in my last post I mentioned that I was attempting to avoid the library and knock books off of my TBR pile instead, I did hit the library today. (Oops.) I was looking for Volume 5 of Saga, and was extremely disappointed that it wasn’t there even though the library web site promised me it was–I hate it when that happens! So I requested it and hopefully it’ll be in before the challenge ends.
To help cope with my disappointment in not finding Saga, I checked out this YA book that was recommended to me by an author I follow on Goodreads:
Enclave (Razorland, #1)
It’s a dark, post-apocalyptic type of read, which I haven’t read in awhile and definitely fits my reading mood. So far I really like the gritty tone and the protagonist, although I hate that her name is Deuce. Seriously? Deuce? The author couldn’t have picked literally any other name at all?
Mini-Challenge 3: Rainbows!
For this challenge, I made a book rainbow with a few of my more colorful book covers:

For part 2 of the challenge, here’s an acrostic of ROYGBIV with some of my favorite authors (except for Banana Yoshimoto–I haven’t read anything by her yet, but I’m really interested in her book The Lake, which sounds intriguing.).
R – Rowell, Rainbow
O – Orwell, George
Y – Yoshimoto, Banana
G – Gaiman, Neil
B – Byrne, Monica
I – Ishiguro, Kazuo
V – Vandermeer, Jeff
Happy reading to everyone!
