November Happenings and Wrap Up

Wrap Up

Wow, this month was rough. Most of the books I read were disappointing on some level. The shining light was A Monster Calls, which I recommend strongly. It’s been awhile since a book made me cry that hard. I’m going to be a real mess when the movie comes out next month.

The Girl on the Train – Paula Hawkins     6/10

         Movie: B-    (Emily Blunt: A+)

A Monster Calls – Patrick Ness     10/10

This month’s pick is Haruki Murakami’s Norwegian Wood.

I decided to read Murakami as a way to celebrate the one year anniversary of my blog! Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage was my first review, and I’ve been excited to tackle another work of Murakami for some time now.

Coming Up

Don’t know if I’m alone in this boat, but this month I’m concentrating on books that came out this year that I’ve really wanted to read. With only two months left, I’m gonna have to make some hard decisions.

There’s just too many great books to read!

I also wanted to give everyone a heads up that Thanksgiving Week I’ll be posting a Mini Review on Tuesday and then taking a break for the Thanksgiving weekend.

Anniversary

I wanted to thank everyone who has supported this page in any way. The first few months were rough, but I think now I know the direction I want to go. There’s a ton of book bloggers out there, so it can be hard to find your place, and you’re left wondering if your voice and opinion matter enough to continue.

After a few months, I realized that I didn’t have to read what everyone else was reading. Probably half the time my tastes will overlap with popular books, but I also love classics and discovering hidden gems. I read what sounds interesting to me, and hope I’m not alone!

There were growing pains, but I think the path is becoming clear.

Also, I want to thank my biggest fan, my husband. His support has meant everything to me.

 

Thank you, and as always I hope everyone has a great month of reading!
