So, I haven’t gotten very far in my reading challenge. This is why I can’t do 52 books in a year. I only get a chance to read right before bed… and then I’m tired.
I’m on book #5. I’m nearly finished with it.
Without further ado, the books I’ve read:
- Dancing Girls by Margaret Atwood (I liked a few of the stories, but not many.)
- Juliet, Naked by Nick Hornby (I’d recommend this one, unless you hate musical-type things.)
- Plum Lucky by Janet Evanovich (A between the novels story… not the best, better than poo.)
- Practical Demonkeeping by Christopher Moore (I could appreciate this novel, but it was a little too dark for my tastes.)
That said, after Practical Demonkeeping, I picked up Lust Lizard of Melancholy Cove (book #5). It also contains darker humor, but I’m enjoying it more.
When I finish Lust Lizard, I’ll move on to Love in the Time of Cholera. I’ve read a few fluffy books… its time for something a little more serious. (A LDfriend mentioned it in a sad, romance-based email and it sounds like a lovely book.)
I also need to find a lightly illustrated version of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass. I’ve never read either one, but I think it might be nice.
