Z is for . . .

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.
