Monthly archives "February 2016"


IMG_1396[1]Back in December I posted the covers of all the books I read for 2015.  I honestly can’t remember how many there were, but I do remember that I didn’t hit my Goodreads reading challenge goal of 100.  When I say reading challenge, it isn’t actually much of a challenge other than to keep track of the books read during the year and while I’ve seen all sorts of different “challenges” that require you to read a book from this genre or that genre, most of them seem daunting with the requirements to complete them.  Just a little FYI …  I have an issue when I don’t complete things, it sort of BUGS me!  So, although, I like a good challenge and they look fun, I’ve never committed myself to one.  However, I saw this one, above, floating around and felt it looked simple enough that I could do it.

On the recommendation of a friend, for January, I picked A Walk To Remember by Nicholas Sparks.  I’ve AWTRnever read the book or seen the movie, and to be honest, I have a love/hate relationship with Sparks’ books.  Meaning, I either really LOVE them or I really HATE them, most usually the later is simply because I don’t like how it ends  While I won’t go into a full review of the book, I did enjoy it, although I was somewhat confused on the ending, but I don’t want to give any spoilers away in case there is someone else that hasn’t read it.  It’s one of Sparks’ earlier books and I can definitely see his writing has evolved over the years. It’s a quick read, approximately ninety five pages on my Kindle, so it didn’t take too long.

I haven’t picked my February read yet. I’ve had a couple recommended to me, but none of them have really grabbed my attention and said “READ ME.”  So, I’m reaching out to you guys, recommend something you think I’d like.

And Happy February!
