So far I am on track for my goal of reading 50 books in 2016. So far I have read:
- The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark by Jill Tomlinson – I know this is a children’s books and I am not going to cheat by adding all the books I read with Evelina but this is a ‘proper’ book in length with actual chapters. It was a favourite when I was small (despite never actually being afraid of the dark myself). It’s the story of Plop the barn owl and all the people he meets tell him how great nighttime is.
- Someday, Someday, Maybe by Lauren Graham – this was my first audiobook finished of the year – some might argue that listening is not reading but I think it counts. I enjoyed this story about a new actress making her way in New York. It certainly helped having Lauren Graham (herself a successful actress known for her roles in Gilmore Girls and Parenthood amongst other things) read her book as it added to the entertainment factor. It won’t win any literary awards but it was engaging and enjoyable – I don’t really want much else from this kind of book.
- Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan – this book is written from the point of view of two different teenagers called Will GRayson with each author taking one of the Wills. The Wills bump into each other and their lives are changed by the meeting. It’s pretty typical Green/Levithan YA fayre and I enjoyed it without LOVING it.
Next up: Allegiant by Veronica Roth and To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee.
