Well folks, I’m going to make a strong statement here. I just finished one of the best books I’ve read in a very long time. It was one of those books that you just can’t put down – once I started reading it, I had to continue.
I’m not sure why it took me so long to get around to reading One Thousand White Women: The Journals of May Dodd, by Jim Fergus. It’s been on my “to-read” list for a very long time, and my mom had told me on multiple occasions that I would really enjoy it. Leave it to mom to know what’s best, right?
I’m one book ahead of schedule for my 2013 reading goal…book #6 of this year was Beautiful Darkness by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl.
Beautiful Darkness is the sequel to Beautiful Creatures, and the second of four books in the Caster Chronicles series. I did mention previously that I got a bit hooked after reading the first book – don’t you hate when you get left with a bit of a cliffhanger? It drew me in, I can’t lie. The plot of this book continues after Lena suffers a loss, and Lena begins pulling away from Ethan. In addition, Ethan is being haunted by more visions, and becomes tangled deeper into his town’s mysterious history as he searches for Lena to bring her back.
As soon as I finished reading The Walking Dead Compendium 1, I requested the second compendium at my library. Annnnnd it took from November until March for me to get to the top of the waiting list. Dang!
I’ve really been on a roll with my book reading lately! Since I started going back to the gym on a regular basis, it has given me some time to turn the pages of various books as I pedal away on the elliptical or bike. I can’t complain.
My 4th book of 2013 was such a fun read: Bossypants by Tina Fey.
