Behind the Blog: Susie at Home With Susie

Behind the BlogSay hello to Susie from Home with Susie!

Tell us a bit about yourself.

Well my name is Susie, and I’m currently in Tennessee. I guess a nifty reason I was introduced to reading is that my mom is deaf, so when I was little, my grandmother read to me every chance she got to make sure I learned how to talk :)

Well, I’m obsessed with pinterest, and I love tumblr. I just didn’t feel like I was funny enough or unique enough to add to that, so I took my old blog I used to show off DIY stuff and switched things up

Initial Impressions: “Afterworlds”

Initial Impressions is a feature where I read the sample of a book and share my initial thoughts on the book. This may help me decide if I want to read the full book in the future.

“Afterworlds” by Scott Westerfeld

Goodreads

 

Sample length: 3 chapters

Thoughts:

If I hadn’t known what the story was about, I would have been pretty confused. I wish there was a bit more explanation for the jumping back and forth. It’s definitely an interesting idea jumping between these two stories.

I connected more with Darcy’s book than I did with Darcy’s story.

Am I going to read the book in the future? Ehhhh. I’m not itching to read it.
