|2017 books read shelved here|
On a positive note, two of my favorite books of the year were ones I finished in November - Mary Oliver's Blue Horses and Paul Auster's 4 3 2 1.
|2017 Favorites shelved here|
In terms of the goals I set for the year - 30% non-fiction and 50% borrowed - I didn't do so well:
Ms. Marvel ("comic with a female superhero") on Monday (yep, already a day late for 2017) and I gave it one star. Here's my review:
"I'm done with comics. I just don't enjoy them. I love the illustrations in children's books, but for anything else, I want my stories with words, not pictures."The 2018 Read Harder challenge has two more comics. On Monday, I decided not to participate. Yesterday, I finished What She Left Behind, the first selection for this year's neighborhood bookclub. I gave it two stars. Gah, this is not a good start! Hopefully, the other books I'm currently reading will get me back on track
And because I'm curious, I'm also going to track book format (audio vs kindle vs real book).
We'll still have Book Bingo this summer (with no squares for comics or short stores 😉). More on all of that come spring.
....whew another very long post. If you're still reading, thank you for sticking with me! And do you have any recommendations on a book that would get me out of my early 2018 slump? please share!
