You’ve been a lovely month full of sunshine and interesting rainstorms that cause power outages and the cancellation of an event at work. Both my sister and my dad celebrated their birthdays, I went home for the county fair, spent some time camping with my boyfriend amidst a burn ban (making s’mores over a propane burner is always interesting), started my classes up, painted a new (well, old, but new to me) bookshelf, and of course, read a lot.
Books I Read:
Yes, I am reading the Percy Jackson series for the very first time. Crazy. Also, I can’t believe it took me this long to discover the Lunar Chronicles, but perfect timing since Winter is coming out in a few months and I’m so very excited !!!
My standings for The Quest No. 1 are as follows:
- Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe – Fannie Flagg
- Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë
- The Martian Chronicles by Ray Bradbury
- The Disciple by Stephen Koontz
And FGT takes the lead! This is such an exciting race.
This is a very short book that is taking me a very long time to read. I have very conflicting feelings about it. You will see, my friends. Well, you will read. Soon, I promise!
Tags and Things:
Favorite Book of the Month:
I didn’t actually like Cress as a character at first, but she grew a lot in this book which I appreciated, since I very much disliked Scarlet in Scarlet, who did not grow. She may actually have shrank. Also, oh my when are Captain Thorne and Cress going to happen?! SO PRECIOUS.
Least Favorite Book of the Month:
Yeah…. just no.
That’s it for this month!
I’ll write again soon. Until then, keep reading.
