I decided last year that I spend way too much time online, generally being enraged by Facebook, so in 2018 I’m turning off the computer and picking up my books. (Yes, I know, I’m working on this site right now instead of reading, but I have been good so far!) I’ll keep track of the books I finish here, and hopefully by December 31st the list will be better than it was in 2017.
I didn’t read much in June, same as May. I have a work deadline of July 6th, but once that’s gone, I’m back on it!
31.) Norse Mythology, by Neil Gaiman. I love everything Gaiman, but I didn’t LOVE this one. Everyone else seems to, so I made the effort to finish, but feeling a little meh afterwards.
32.) The Woman in Cabin 10, by Ruth Ware. I found the protagonist incredibly annoying but the store was uber-suspenseful. I wanted to find out what happened to her, even if I didn’t really care one way or the other. 🙂
33.) The Baking Life of Amelie Day (Middle-grade Novels), by Vanessa Curtis. When I was a kid, I was fascinated by stories of children with an illness or injury. Does anyone remember Making Half Whole, or Just Like Always, or Waiting for Johnny Miracle? They’re the reasons I picked up this one. Such a sweet story.
