February Reading

I’m still trucking away, working toward my goal of reading 50 books by the end of 2015.  I’ve made quite a dent so far.  I’m sure when I’m busy this summer I’ll be happy I had such a head start early in the year.

FebBooks

Here are February’s books:

7.  Defiance — Shelly Crane

8.  The River — Beverly Lewis

9.  The First Husband — Laura Dave

10.  Sisterland — Curtis Sittenfeld

11.  Forrest Gump — Winston Groom

12.  I’ve Got Your Number — Sophie Kinsella

13.  If You Were Here — Jen Lancaster

14.  Remember Me? — Sophie Kinsella

15.  Angel Falls — Kristin Hannah

16.  The Undomestic Goddess — Sophie Kinsella

17.  American Sniper — Chris Kyle

Favorite book:  If You Were Here.  The main character in this novel seemed to be the poster child for Murphy’s law.  The further you got into the book, the more you were able to predict that crazy things that were going to happy.  However, the writing is good.  It’s humorous without being too ridiculous.

Least favorite book: Forrest Gump.  I know, this surprises me, too.  This is one of the few instances where a movie ended up being better than the book it was based on.  The book version is much less wholesome than the movie.  I really had to push myself to even finish reading.  The entire book is written from Forrest’s point-of-view, complete with the southern dialect and phonetic spelling.  It was rough.

What do you think?  Have you read any of these books?  What’s the last book you read?

  1. I have no idea how you find time to read. Sometimes I can sneak in 30 minutes if I delay sleeping or maybe steal a couple of hours on the weekend if I get a BRAND new book. Mostly I’m just pre-reading for K. Good times.

    • I stay up way too late some nights and I don’t watch tv. I also received a Kindle Paperwhite for my birthday. So when I’m up at night with Moxie I can read for 15 minutes or so rather than just play on my phone. This month was an anomaly. I don’t typically read through quite so many.

Tell me what you think! I reply to as many comments as I can.
