I got the idea for this post from a YouTuber (a dash of ash) who did the same thing. I think it’s an excellent idea to show all the books since it is close to mid year. Also, I don’t talk about every book I read so I thought this would be informative. In this post you’ll see all 15 books I’ve read thus far this year, why I chose to read them, and what I thought.
April and May were both very good months. I finished four books in April, which is pretty good for me, and although I only read one book in May, I wrote more than I ever have. I also purchased some of my most anticipated books of the year (aka The Summer Children, Ace of Shades, and Brightly Burning.)
This Top Ten Tuesday topic was surprisingly difficult. Every book that I read that is not set in my surroundings is usually a fantasy book set in a made-up place. I know that there are lots of YA Contemporary Fiction books set in other countries but I don’t usually read those. I know that there are good ones but I feel like a lot of them have spoiled main characters that don’t want to be where they are and I get annoyed. These are the the books that I’ve either read or am interested in reading that are set in another country.
This post is inspired by my recent trip to Home Depot. I went with my friends to look at plants when our nursery of choice was closed for the day. I used to work at Home Depot in the garden department and that time made me very interested in plants. Just being there made me very excited for spring and summer! I loved gardening last year and this year I’ll be even more prepared and I’ll also have twice as much space to plant. So these are all the plants I think I’ll definitely be able to grow.
February was a really interesting month. I did not do much and took no pictures so I’m not going to do any photos from my camera roll and instead share a story from my travels on Ohio roads.
The Top Ten Tuesday (hosted by The Artsy Reader Girl) topic for today was originally “Books That I Am Not Too Interested In Reading Anymore.” This would have been perfect except for I just deleted a bunch of books from my Goodreads list because I didn’t want to read them anymore. I didn’t want to read them anymore and so I obviously can’t remember a single one! I think this topic will do fine as a replacement because series are hard to read.
This post is a collection of things I’ve noticed in my reading experience. They range from surface level things that anyone can see on a book when they just pick it up in the store to details that come about deeper in one’s reading.
