I Love to Read

One of my favorite podcasts is What Should I Read Next. While it is a joy to listen to, it is a hazard for my TBR [To Be Read] list. I have found so many great books from listening to Anne (the host).

Recently Anne came out with her 2018 Reading Challenge. I really enjoyed how the 2017 Reading Challenge forced me to read outside my normal range so I am definitely participating again.

In addition, I have set a lofty goal via Goodreads – 125 books this year. I told you it was lofty.

Here is what I have read so far:

When I first saw this in the stores I wasn’t sure. Then I looked at the reviews and people were raving about how good it was – they were right! It was so good!!! Not only was it funny, which you would expect from Kevin Hart but it was also inspiring! Good book!

I decided to listen to this book (I read it years ago as a small girl) because it was read by the author EB White. He did an amazing job! I really enjoyed this book so much more as an adult. I am learning that I really enjoy YA more than I thought I would – another suggestion from the WSiRN podcast.

This book is from one of my favorite genres – contemporary fiction with a sub-genre of everyday family life. I might be weird but I love reading about families as messed up as mine. I really wish I knew an author that could write about my messed up clan (boy that would be a page-turner).

This was a slow-starter for me. I really want to see the movie but as per the norm for me- needed to read the book first. I’m glad I pushed through the beginning because it did get better. Now to find the movie…

Those are in my Virtual Finished Pile (I rarely buy a physical book anymore). Now onto what I am currently reading:

I have no guilt about stopping a book that simply doesn’t work for me, so don’t be surprised if one or more of these don’t make it to the Virtual Finished Pile. I’ll report again soon.

  1. Have you read “Eleanor and Park”? I forget the author’s name, but I’m sure if you search that you’ll find it. It is a YA novel, and very good! Keep the tissues handy, though.
