Welcome to the post that is all about what I have been reading lately. Included in this post is how I am documenting what I have been reading - in a 4 x 8 Citrus Twist kits album (you can see the remainder of the inserts for this month's reading documenting at the bottom of this post). In addition I have included 'thoughts' on each of the books I have read, below.
A couple 'dud' reads for me, Suh a Fun Age, and This Time Next Year; and a surprising 5-Star read, The Incredible Winston Browne - and can I say if you don't read Sean Dietrich's, daily column / blog - you must! Plus, a couple other really good 4-5 Star books: The Last Thing He Told Me, Dragonfly, The Guncle, and The Paris Library. Honestly, my favorite book of the month is a toss up between The Incredible Winston Browne and Louise Penny's, The Madness of Crowds. I am extremely comfortable with Penny's books now that I can read them, usually, in a day. Although, I didn't finish The Madness until past my bedtime. I am almost finished re-reading through the In Death series by J.D. Robb, reading book 50, Golden in Death and I give almost all of the books in the series 5 Stars as they're my favorite genre.
I will be hosting my book club again in September. I am really looking forward to gathering together to talk books. We'll be reading The Rose Code in September and selecting our October - December books. I'm compiling the books now for us to choose from.
