So.. you remember when I said I wasn’t going to buy too many books this year.. well it’s only the second month in 2018 and I went on a rampage! First off, February selection for Book of the Month was on a whole new level, I wanted 2 of the 5 choices.. so instead of being a smart sensible woman, I picked up another one then my usual one a month. But they were having an exclusive offer on The Power, which I have been having a hard time tracking down, and then it just has gone down hill from there this month. Sorry bank account for the books, Wayfair, and the Girl Scout Cookie purchases this month. It didn’t help that my friend’s daughter is Girl Scout so I had direct access to what I wanted. Don’t worry, we will be better behaved next month (yeah right).
- BOM – The Power by Naomi Alderman
- ARC – Love and Ruin by Paula Mclain
- ARC – How to Walk Away by Katherine Center
- ARC – The Other Lady Vanishes by Amanda Quick
- ARC – Laura & Emma by Kate Greathead
- BOM- The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah
- BOM- The Philosopher’s Flight by Tom Miller
- Introverts in Church: Finding Our Place in an Extroverted Culture by Adam McHugh
Taking Up Residency:
- Ready Player One by (I read this book ages ago! But since the movie is due out next month, I am trying to re-read it before I see it.)
- Year One by Nora Roberts (Still reading this… the book freaks me out a little bit so I only feel safe reading it in the daytime, lol)
- Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind by Yuval Noah Harari (There is nothing brief about this book.. its a whopping 500 page, dense novel about the history of humans… yeah)
- The Power by Naomi Alderman – I am almost done with this book and I am breezing through it! I can’t get enough of this world and I like Naomi’s simplistic writing style, it’s quite refreshing.
- Pretty Little Mistakes by Heather McElhatton – this is one of those ” choose your own adventure” books. I picked this up one night since nothing else was exciting me at the moment and enjoyed an evening (or two) getting lost with different versions of my story.
- The Italian Party by Christine Lynch – Taken place in Siena, Italy during the 1950’s, a recently married American couple move to Italy with secrets of their own. I had mix feelings about this book, and I am quiet surprised I finished it but I love certain parts of the plot line, and I found other not necessary to move the story along. However, it was a lovely little read to have before bed.
I’m afraid not much reading was happening this month, work got the best of me and I often fell asleep within 5-10 pages of reading. Oh well, maybe March will be a better month for finishing up books.
