This is the first time in a long time that I’m not up to date on my reading reviews! I hate being behind and playing catch up, but I’ve not had too much time to get my thoughts down. However, I’ve still had quite a good bookish month despite being so busy. I read 7 books, which for me is about average per month. I havent added all my books that ive read this month onto goodreads, but on their I’m onto 41 books and 55% of the way through the challenge. I am still four books ahead, even though i havent added the rest on yet!
39)The Difference A Day Makes – Carole Matthews (paperback book, 2010 book) I really enjoyed this book, it is by one of my favourite authors and this book was really good too. good refreshing chick lit book.
40)Around the World in Eighty Days – Jules Verne (kindle book, 2012 book) This book was picked for the reading circle over on the BCF. I was surprised as to how much i enjoyed this book and how much i got into the story.
41)The Virgin Student – Virgin Student (kindle e-book, 2012 book) This was a collection of blog excerpts made into a book, i enjoyed it, but the subject matter was a bit different.
42)Marine at War – M. Micheal. I downloaded this as it was free and i have to say that i didn’t like it unfortunately. I just felt like it rambled on and didn’t have any structure. I also found the subject horrific and upsetting.
43)The Opposite of Fate – Amy Tan (hardback book, 2012 book) This book was picked as a read for the Rory challenge. This was a memoir that went into detail about the author’s life and works. I want to read more of her books now
44) I Know You Got Soul – Clarkson (paperback, 2010 book) I had this book as i really liked the presenter and loved him on TopGear. However, i didnt enjoy his book to much.
45)Just a Kid, A Guard at the Nuremberg Trials by Emilio DiPalma. This was fantastic. I really enjoyed this memoir, i love everything about the second world war and it was fantastic to have yet another perspective on this horrible event.
Books carried over
Paperback – I’m currently reading Secret Diary of a Demented Housewife by Niamh Green. Its a chick lit book that is quite funny in places and would probably appeal to lots of housewives everywhere.
Kindle – Before and Gone by J.M. Pierce. This is a sci-fi book that talks about being abducted by aliens and then the end of the world happening. Not too sure if i will read more in the series
Bed Book – Still reading Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J. K. Rowling. I’m now at the part where Harry figures out the egg and im really getting into the story now.
