  • I read 5 1/2 books this month! That is seriously miraculous, I haven't read that many books in a month since Jan. 2011! 

    I'm only halfway finished with The Diviners by Libba Bray but it's like 600 pages so cut me a little slack!

    I also finished books 2, 3, & 4 of the Bridal Quartet by Nora Roberts and I loved them all. Sappy romance and weddings...there was no way I wasn't going to love it.

    Easy by Tammara Webber which I got for 99 cents on my Kindle and read just for a lark. Very mature YA...I liked it a lot more than I thought I would.

    I also finally read The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald and understand why people love it so much and hate that it took me almost 30ish years to read it!

    2014 Reading Goal: 85

  • Books 4-10 of the Midnight Breed series by Lara Adrian - this series was pretty good, not as good as BDB but decent. I look forward to the next book to see where she goes with it

    We Need to Talk About Kevin by Lionel Shriver - This book took me a while to read. The writing style was difficult but the last fourth of the book made up for it. This book blew me away.

    Dead Until Dark (Sookie Stackhouse #1) by Charlaine Harris - This was just okay, probably because I just started watching True Blood and had a major marathon of all the series, and this first book followed the first series pretty closely. I am waiting a while before I read the rest.

    Shadow and Bone (The Grisha Trilogy #1) by Leigh Bardugo - I was blown away by this one, I didn't expect to love it so much! Eagerly awaiting the next book.

    Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn - This book was disturbing but I loved and all the twists and turns to the story.

    Legend by Marie Lu - I enjoyed this one and I'm looking forward to the sequel

    Hex Hall, Demonglass, and Spellbound (Hex Hall 1, 2, & 3) by Rachel Hawkins - This was a nice fluff series that was a little different. I enjoyed them all

    Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta - Although the beginning was confusing, I loved this book!

    The Demon King (Sevem Realms #1) by Cinda Williams Chima - I really enjoyed this book and can't wait to read the rest. I bought the actual book so I just need to get myself to the bookstore to buy the others!

    Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi - Started out slow but I ended up really enjoying it!

    Books 1-6 of the House of Night series by P.C. Cast - This series is pretty "meh" for me. 2-3 stars tops. I borrowed them from a friend but she doesn't have the next three. Still deciding if I care enough about the story to buy the rest

     That puts me at 24 books for the month. These are all for my yearly book goal, I am now at 93 of 150, 4% ahead.

  • Winter Garden by Kristin Hannah - 4*s

    Blackout by Mira Grant - 4*s

    If I Stay by Gale Foreman - 3*s

    Unwind by Neal Shusterman - 3*s

    People of the Book by Geraldine Brooks - 3*s

    The Drawing of the Three by Stephen King - 3*s

    Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi - 3*s

    Where She Went by Gale Foreman - 3*s

    The Rose Garden by Susanna Kearsley - 3*s

     

    This month was just kind of meh for me.  Everything was good, but not great.  Except Winter Garden.  I did enjoy that quite a bit, but because it was right at the beginning of the month I feel like it was so long ago!  Hopefully my next book will be great!

    And also, everything I read was pretty highly rated on GRs so I think it was disappointing to me that I rated them below average.  I wanted to like them as much as everyone else!  

    I'm at 46 books out of 50 for my goal.  Obviously I'm going to surpass that goal.  I don't think I'll raise it.  I'll probably just see where I end up.
