Happy Memorial Day everyone!
Today is a quiet and lazy day. I am worn out from the last few days, and so I am relaxing in front of the fan in my office and thinking about what to write. I was able to have lunch today with a friend, and she gave me this little book where you can record the books you’ve read and what you think of them.
It reminded me of what I did last year around this time. In the post I listed all the books I was able to read in five months and what I thought of them. This time its been longer, though. This is really for my benefit, mostly, as I have a terrible memory.
What could I have possibly read in a year??
Here we go, and in no particular order…
Audio Books I’ve listened to:
American Sniper, by Chris Kyle
Call the Midwife, by Jennifer Worth
I Was Here, Gayle Forman
Matched, by Ally Condie
Beautiful Creatures, by Kami Garcia, Margaret Stohl
The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel: The Alchemyst, The Magician, The Sorceress, The Necromancer, by Michael Scott
The Maze Runner, The Scorch Trials, by James Dashner
The Color Magic, by Terry Pratchett
The Long Earth, The Long War, The Long Mars, by Terry Pratchett & Stephen Baxter
The House of Hades, by Rick Riordan
The Ocean at the End of the Lane, by Neil Gaiman
The Wind in the Willows, by Kenneth Grahame
Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear, by Elizabeth Gilbert
A Curious Mind: The Secret to a Bigger Life, by Brian Grazer
Whatever You Do, Don’t Run: True Tales of a Botswana Safari Guide, by Peter Allison
And other books, not on audio:
The Raven King, by Maggie Stiefvater
The Iron Warrior, by Julie Kagawa
Winter, Fairest, by Marissa Meyer
Hmm…not a bad list, although its clear I need to read more books that aren’t on audio. I think its time to focus on reading some more adult fiction, non-fiction and science fiction and fantasy. And this doesn’t include the Harry Potter series that a listened to again this year on audio. (I think I have an obsession!)
What do you guys like to read? Read anything new recently?
Happy writing (and reading)!
