I did a ton of reading, tweeting and writing this month, guys. Between the audiobooks and the library, I’ve had quite a variety of reads this month, though most of them were fiction, as usual. Looking back, I read a lot of good books this month. Some, like Anne of Green Gables, were re-reads, but they still did not disappoint!
The Lord of Opium – Nancy Farmer ★★
Aristotle & Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe – Benjamin Alire Saenz ★★★★★
Dear Fang, With Love – Rufi Thorpe ★★★★
Anne of Green Gables – Lucy Maud Montgomery ★★★★
The Secret Language of Stones (ARC)- M.J. Rose ★★★
Labyrinth Lost (ARC)- Zoraida Cordova ★★★★★
The Wild Rose – Jennifer Donnelly ★★★★
Dreamer’s Pool – Juliet Marillier ★★★★
Tower of Thorns – Juliet Marillier ★★★★
Messenger – Lois Lowry ★★★
True Enough – Farhad Manjoo ★★★
Son – Lois Lowry ★★★
Hunter’s Oath (ARC) – Michelle West ★★★★
I also wrote quite a bit for work and for the blog, adding two new columns, joining a book tag for the first time, and did a blogger blind date!
I started a #tbt column that I couldn’t help but talk about The Witch of Blackbird Pond. I’m not sure yet how often I’ll do these, but I like doing them, so I hope you like reading them! I also started up Series Saturday, which will be done twice a month. The first series I wrote about was the Books of Bayern by Shannon Hale, which got a beautiful new set of covers! I’ll have another Series Saturday up next weekend for the Sacred Hunt Duology.
All of this added up to a pretty packed month, and I’m really pleased with it. With all the reading I did, I am very close to finishing my Goodreads goal for the year, and I’m debating upping it to 100 or maybe 125. I’ve had a goal of 100 books in the past, but only reached it once because life got busy, but I’m reading like 9 books a month, minimum.
Did you read some of these books? What do you think of them? And should I raise my goodreads goal, or just keep reading and see how far I get?
