I’m not as far along as I’d hoped I’d be halfway through the year, but so far so good. Check out books and reviews here.
- By this same time last year I’d read 53 books. I attribute this dip to a combination of spending more weekends with friends and marathon-watching Lie to Me and Bones.
- My move to a bigger town this previous December has given me access to a larger library system, but the branch nearest to me is fairly small. I’m trying to figure out how to plan inter-library loans.
- I gave short stories another try by reading Aimee Bender’s The Color Master. It was a bit of a disaster.
- I got a whopping 12 books for my birthday! I’ve already devoured one and am eeny-meeny-miney-mo’ing my decision for what’s up next.
- I’m heading to the Carolinas with my mom in late July; I’m looking forward to taking in some historical sites, visiting the spa, and spending time with the wonderful woman who raised me.
How’s your reading going this year?

I’ve been reading, 2 books finished since May 11 which is pretty good considering we moved. 🙂 Both are from the book club from the blog A Beautiful Mess: The Goldfinch, and The Good Luck of Right Now. I just started #BossGirl for that group.
I didn’t like The Goldfinch, although it was well written and compelling. It’s too long and the ending was not satisfying to me. I really liked The Good Luck of Right Now even though it’s kind of weird.
I pulled out a mystery to start today too. I’ve got some reading challenges to get caught up on lol.
