So, my goal this month was to read 8 books. That would put me over the halfway mark to 100 and would be about 2 books a week. That isn't too hard for me...most of the time. But this month I completely missed my goal mark and read 3 books. I skimmed through 2 of them. How bad is that?!?
Summer reading? What is that?
I feel like I have been completely-entirely too busy to read lately.
...working 2 jobs, 5 kids, opening a business, church calling...life...maybe those have something to do with it?
I really enjoyed this book! It is a regency romance, set mostly on a boat en route from Jamaica to England. The characters are fun and likeable and it is an easy clean read. I am not sure if this is her first novel or if she has more, but I will be keeping my eye out fore more books by Jennifer Moore. This was the only book I really read this month!
I saw this book on a list of historical fiction must read books. I was not impressed. I skimmed mostly of the second half just because I was annoyed with it, but still wanted to finish it. I didn't really love any of the characters. I don't really recommend this book.
I've had this book sitting on my nightstand for a longtime and finally got around to picking it up this last week. It is very good and has some great ideas. I really enjoy the suggested ideas at the end of every chapter. I will admit that I skimmed though parts, but not because I didn't like it. Great book, good suggestion if you want to read more about finding ways to find joy long the journey.
Update: I forgot, I read the boys The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe one week at bedtime. So I'm totally counting that!
Book total count: 52
Just a tiny bit over halfway.
August is going to be a better book month.
I just know it.
