As I looked over my posts from last year, I realized just now that it has been almost exactly a year since I last posted. I just could not get going last year. No particular reason. Just had a lot to do and my energy could not support it all, so something had to go.
But, my goal for this year is to get a post up about once a week.
So here we go! I usually do my summer book review first, so…I read some good ones this summer! I read a total of 17 books, all adult reading. I gave up on a few because I have decided that there are too many good books out there to waste time finishing the bad ones. I think my favorites of the summer were The Martian by Andy Weir, and The Recipe Box by Viola Shipman. Two VERY different books, but both hit in areas I am interested in. I am looking forward to reading Artemis, Weir’s second book. We’ll see if I like it as much as his first.
And now back to reading my YA books. I tend to take a break in the summer, even though I love them. 🙂 I started this year by reading Heartless by Marissa Meyer, which was a take on Alice in Wonderland. It wasn’t bad. I am almost finished with Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi. I like the mythology and magic in it, and there is a love story I can handle. I can’t read romance. Bleh. But a cute story of the Romeo and Juliet type is fine.
The reading list is long, but I love always having the variety of a stack of books as tall as I am! And fall is just about here, so I can cozy up and read, read read!
