It’s been a pretty dang good reading year so far. Sure, there have been some less than satisfactory reads, but those have been few and far between. Being a newbie blogger (less than a year old), I’m still getting into my groove, but a mid-year post sounds fun and encouraging. So, without further ado, here goes:
According to the lovely Goodreads page, I’ve finished sixty nine books so far this year. I haven’t been counting books I read to my kids, or anything I’ve read for school, but it’s a pretty accurate count of my “me time” progress.
I’ve seen other posts listing top three books read, or even one favorite, but I don’t think I can possibly pick just one. Instead, I’m listing my top reads below, complete with links to any posts I’ve written. These are not in any particular order.
Duckett and Dyer: Dicks for Hire by Ganesh Nair: blog post forthcoming.
The Unlikely Escape of Uriah Heep by H.G. Parr: you can find my blog post here.
Two Like Me and You by Chad Alan Gibb: You can read my glowing review here.
Wicked Saints by Emily A. Duncan: I waxed enthusiastic about this book. You can read my post here.
Imaginary Friend by Stephen Chbosky: Read the many wonderful things about this book here.
For the Love of Books: Stories of Literary Lives, Banned Books, Author Feuds Extraordinary Characters, and More by Graham Tarrant: The only thing I didn’t love about this book is its name. Read my review here.
Daisy Jones and the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid: This book has shown up on many lists of favorites I’ve seen, for good reason. Here is one more glowing review.
Changeling (the Oddmire Book 1) by William Ritter: This book is fantastic and I loved every minute of it. Read why here
The Return of King Lillian by Suzie Plakson: The one is wonderful! Its release date is next Tuesday and I highly recommend it. Read my review here.
The Twisted Tree by Rachel Burge: This was a fun, spooky book. Check out my blog post here.
There are several other books I’m looking forward to reading this year, not to mention any unexpected treasures that I’m sure to meet. Happy reading!
