Believe it or not I reduced my Goodreads Reading Challenge to only 50 books this year. I’ve read 28 so far, and yes that includes four audio books, which my daughter skeptically feels shouldn’t count as ‘reading’, HA. I’m confident I will happily exceed my goal.
There are only a few reads that I gave five stars to and ‘Becoming Mrs. Lewis’ is my fav so far, with ‘Finding Dorothy’ a close second. There are both at heart fascinating love stories of heroes of great literature.
One non fiction, which truly resonated: ‘Waking Up in Winter’ and one, ‘Educated’, which did not. Historical fiction centered around little known women are still my go to genre along with WW2 stories from women’s perspectives and families who survived the holocaust. I read to be moved…to be changed by my experience on the page. You?
Interestingly, ten of these authors I read because I enjoyed their previous books and I wasn’t disappointed but in most cases thought their earlier books were more gripping. Friend me on Goodreads for my stars and reviews: Laura Allen
When I walk through bookstores I admit I am attracted to book covers; I am a sucker for good marketing and art that draws me in for a closer look. And of course unique catchy titles, I enjoy sleuthing to figure out while reading a book when the author chose that for the title. Unique title award so far: ‘The Very Persistent Gappers of Frip’ wins hands down!
I’d love to hear what you’re reading and if we have any novels in common!
Here’s to turning the page!
