Happy New Year, all! I'll be posting my full-year stats & list shortly, but wanted to reflect on December by itself also. While my reading hasn't made a full comeback, it's getting there. I'm pretty happy with the lack of reading-obligation-stress at least!
5 Books Read in December: (95 total)
1 for Obligation:
- The Fellowship of the Ring, J.R.R. Tolkien (4) (Read for my 13 year-old who read Watership Down for me. It was better than when I tried to read it in high school. Thank goodness.)
4 Just Because:
- The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry, Rachel Joyce (5) (wonderful story! great audio selection.)
- Rules of Civility, Amor Towles (3.5) (a lot of little things bugged me here. meh.)
- The Colour of Milk, Nell Leyshon (4.5) (sad topic, but gorgeous and perfect all the same)
- Up From the Blue, Susan Henderson (3.5) (would have been better but for the narrator on the audio version. Should have read the print copy, but that's not how this month worked.)
3 Current Reads:
- The Famine Plot, Tim Pat Coogan. Received from LibraryThing's Early Reviewers and really enjoying it so far Love nonfiction! Love Ireland!
- Persuasion, Jane Austen. Love this book, and super excited to be reading it along with a great group over at Unputdownables.
- The Story of Edgar Sawtelle, David Wroblewski. Book club book, currently listening to the audio version and not likely to get done in time!
On My Nightstand:
Most likely contenders for what I want to read next are Two Guys Read Jane Austen and Running the Rift. I also have to obtain Flight Behavior for one of my book group reads.
