Two challenges down and several more to go. I forgot to mention how I did in the Chunkster Challenge. I signed up to read three books but only finished one. Oh but what a good book, The Hummingbird’s Daughter was. It is right up there as one of my favorite reads of the year. I had a write up of the book but can’t find it (must organize soon) and I’m a bit too lazy to re-write it right now but take my word for it, it’s a must read book. In the meantime, I just wanted to say a big thank you to Nancy, aka Bookfool, for organizing this fun challenge.
So what did I finish this month? Take a look:
The Last Summer (of You & Me) by Ann Brashares (my review)
The Murder of Roger Ackroyd by Agatha Christie
To Say Nothing of the Dog by Connie Willis (my review)
The Hummingbird’s Daughter by Luis Alberto Urrea
The Spellman Files by Lisa Lutz (my review)
The Mermaids Singing by Lisa Carey (my review)
Parable of the Sower by Octavia E. Buter (my review)
Volk’s Game by Brent Ghelfi (my review)
As this is the half way point of a reading year I went back to my January post to see how I was doing on my reading resolutions. I was flexible but I did say that I wanted to read more Classics and non-fiction books. I actually said I wanted to read five non-fiction books.
I’ve only read one Classic, but I have read four non-fiction books already so that is a good thing. I’ve also read a couple of young adult and several sci-fi books so it’s been fun to branch out in other genres.
I’ve got lots of great books (keeps fingers crossed) waiting for me so can’t wait to see what the rest of the year brings. Oh and let’s see if I do better on these other reading challenges.
