For the last day of the A to Z Challenge, I am really struggling. I have recorded in LibraryThing that I have read exactly three books that start with Z.
I don’t feel like I remember any of them well enough to write a regular-format post.
I remember reading Zel by Donna Jo Napoli in 2001. I always found the fairy tale “Rapunzel” just absolutely fascinating when I was a little girl. I remember loving this this book while reading it during a break at the library I working at in 2001. I have vague memories of Zel hiking to get food. That’s ALL I remember. I think I should re-read this book soon and see when I think now.
In 2008, I read through a very simple book about Zac Effron (People in the News) by Terri Dougherty. It was just okay.
In 2009, I read a memoir by Zubin Mehta, the conductor, entitled Zubin Mehta: The Score of My Life. I remember parts of it, but again, not enough to really discuss it properly. I remember being in the bathtub on day while reading it. It may have still been the early days of being pregnant with my second son. I remember feeling nauseous. (It was a 24-hour thing for 16+ weeks straight.) At the time, I gave this book 3.5 out of 5 stars.
