    If I finished The Sixes tonight (which I'm hoping to do) then I will have finished 14 books this month. Not too shabby, IMO. I'm currently at 57/125. Per my GR goal tracker I am ahead by 6 books.

  • City of Lost Souls - liked it better than the last

    Insurgent - meh

    Beautiful Darkness - liked it

    Hoping to finish Daughter of Smoke and Bone tonight. No idea why it is taking me so long to read it. I like it, but for whatever reason I keep pushing it aside.

    "People talk about escapism as if it's a bad thing... Once you've escaped, once you come back, the world is not the same as when you left it. You come back to it with skills, weapons, knowledge you didn't have before. Then you are better equipped to deal with your current reality."

    2014 Reading Goal: 85

  • Very slow reading month for me, mostly due to migraines.  I was way ahead on my progress toward 75 for the year, so I'm still ahead.  I only finished six, and one of those was a very short children's book, and another a still pretty short children's chapter book.


    Insurgent, Veronica Roth - *****

    Cloudette, Tom Lichtenheld - ***

    Pocket Kings, Ted Heller - ****

    The Mysterious Disappearance of Leon (I Mean Noel), Ellen Raskin - *****

    The Gap Year, Sarah Bird - ****

    Please Ignore Vera Dietz, A.S. King - *****


    ETA:   Forgot to include my reread of The Lover's Dictionary (*****).  I wish Goodreads had a way to include rereads in one's totals.
