I didn’t read as much as I wanted to read this time around, but I did get in some good book time.
Just to recap, here’s where I said I would focus my reading time:
- Finishing up Start Here: Read Your Way Into 25 Amazing Authors, a great Book Riot production featuring some of my favorite new authors writing about some of my all-time favorite authors (I’ll let that sink in) – highly recommended!
- Starting Anna Karenina, a classic I want to read before seeing the latest adaptation (and one of the classics for January/February!)
- Toying with Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, a book that’s been sitting on my Kindle for far too long
- Listening to The Cutting Season, my latest Audible pick
And what happened?
- Start Here: Read Your Way Into 25 Amazing Authors: Finished! And easily worth the $2.99 if you’re a book lover. I’ll post a review in the next couple of days.
- Anna Karenina: Fail! I never started. Oops.
- Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children: Fairly close to finishing. I ended up getting really into figuring out what’s going on with this book. I’m not sure I love it, it’s just an interesting and quick light read.
- The Cutting Season: Finally getting into it. Sometimes I have to adjust to new narrators, but now I’m really loving this one.
This read-a-thon was hosted by Seasons of Reading, a blog hosted by The True Book Addict. The purpose is “a week of relaxed reading during which we can personally challenge ourselves and whittle away those ever looming TBR piles/shelves/libraries.” You can bet I’ll be participating again next year – this is one of my favorite annual reading events and such a great start to a new year!
