Time for a reading update! By the way, I am SO GLAD I started doing this little reading challenge this year. It's made me realize how much I love getting lost in a book.
1. A book you own but haven't read
3 - a book you pick solely because of the cover
4 - a book your friend loves
8 - a book at the bottom of your "to be read" pile
9 - a book with a color in the title
10 - a book set somewhere you've always wanted to visit
11 - a book you started but never finished
12 - a book with a lion, a witch, or a wardrobe
15 - a book of poems
19 - a book you were supposed to read in school. But didn't.
20 - a book "Everyone" has read but you
22 - a book with pictures
23 - a book from the library
24 - a book you loved... read it again!
25 - a book that is more than 10 years old
The first book I read this month satisfied #4 and is called The Storyteller by Jodi Picoult. A friend let me borrow one of Jodi's books a couple of years ago and I loved it. I asked her for a recommendation for more books by this author and she said this was her favorite one. It's a heavy read about a heavy subject - the Holocaust - but it was absolutely amazing. It tells stories from a survivor and from an officer at a camp. I read it very quickly because I just couldn't put it down.
The next book I read in June was Big Little Lies from Liane Moriarty. I'm using it for #1 because I bought it sometime last year and hadn't read it yet. It's a mystery book that kept me guessing and my jaw dropped at the end of it -no spoilers though. :) It's a great easy summer read. I started it before vacation, but read most of it on the way home from South Carolina.
