I’ve read 18 books so far this year. Last year, I only read read 23 books, so I’m thinking it’s pretty likely I’m going to read more this year than I did last year AND that I might meet my goal of reading 52 books this year. Yay for me!
I finished the Fablehaven Series by Brandon Mull this month. I read the first two books eons ago, but got sidetracked for the last three. I was having trouble deciding on the next book to read on my kindle and remembered that I had this book already downloaded. It took me a while to remember everything that went on, but once I did I found the rest of the series enjoying. I didn’t think the last two books were as good as the first three, but that’s how it goes with series some times and I’d still recommend them.
Other very good YA (young Adult books) I’ve read this month also include Jeremy Fink and the Meaning of Life by Wendy Mass and Falling In by Frances O’Roark Dowell. I’m also in the midst of a Harry Potter re-read, but if you haven’t heard of Harry Potter and formed an opinion on the series, I’m not sure there’s much we can talk about.
I managed to read a non-fiction book this month too. That’s two months in a row! This month, I read Devil in the Details by Jennifer Traig about the author’s struggle with OCD during the 70s and 80s. I finished it but I wasn’t stoked about it and I’m on the cusp of being actually able to recommend it.
Lastly, I read Those Who Save Us by Jenna Blum that was a fantastic book and The Guernsy Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer, which was NOT a fantastic book and that I only read because I like books written in letter form. Can’t really recommend that either
What did you read last month? Any fantastic books I need to add to my to-read list??
