Way back in January, I used Goodreads to set a reading challenge for myself.
I’m 3 books behind. That’s what I get for being cocky in the middle of the summer (oh, 2 books ahead, what happened to you?). BUT that’s still 37 books read. I looked at my reading list and it’s quite eclectic: nonfiction about serial killers to YA about dragons to a memoir heavily influenced by taxidermy to classic lit.
What have I read lately?
For Banned Book Week, I picked up Beloved. It took me two weeks to read it. I enjoyed it, but it was a difficult read, both because I wasn’t used to the style and because of the subject matter.
From there I jumped to Edward Trencom’s Nose. Wow, completely different. Light hearted writing with bizarre death scenes and all sorts of cheeses I haven’t tried. If you like descriptions of cheeses, check it out.
Now, I just started book 38: Casual Vacancy. 40 pages in and nary a wizard in sight, but I’m enjoying it. I’ve always liked JK Rowling’s writing style.
What have you read this year?
And what should make my final 12 reading list?
