Reading Queue is a monthly meme where you share what books you plan to read for the month. You can hop to other blogs and see what others are reading and maybe find someone reading the same thing as you! Or you can ask for people to vote on what you should read next if you can’t decide. Reading Queue is hosted by Book Tasty and Books: A true story.
A Classic – Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas
This is going to be my 1000+ page book for the year. I’m really excited to listen to this one on Whispersync (where it keeps your place between the audiobook and the ebook). I love the idea of switching between the ebook and audio to hopefully finish it faster. And it solves my problem of “reading” two books at the same time if I’m listening to audiobooks and reading.
For Fun – Edenbrooke by Julianne Donaldson
Because who doesn’t want to read a Regency Romance for Valentines Day? I’m only picking two books this month because it will probably take me almost the whole month to finish Count of Monte Cristo.
For Book Club – Queen of the Big Time by Adriana Trigiani
This is a small town story about a family over three generations. I’m getting it on audiobook from the library and I’m excited to read it.
For Fun – Wheat Belly by William Davis
My aunt lent this book to me but then the audiobook came in at the library so I’m listening to it now. It brings up a lot of interesting questions about genetically modified wheat and how much wheat is really in our diet.
How I Did Last Month
So I liked the first half of this one. The second half was the longest, most boring flashback that I’ve ever read and was anti-Mormon to boot. So mixed feelings about this one you could say.
I loved this one! It had a Percy Jackson feel to me since it was about Greek Gods and what they would be like if they were still around today. So it was a retelling, but mostly Bree just made mythology her own and she rocked it. It was a great paranormal romance.
I’m currently reading this one. I can see that there are readers that would love this book but it’s not connecting with me. If I don’t love it by 100 pages I will probably DNF it.
I didn’t get to this one this month. There were too many awesome books that came in at the library so I read those first.
My first audiobook ever! I loved it!! In fact, I don’t think I would have liked the book if I’d just read it since it was written with a strong southern accent that was difficult to read but it really added to the atmosphere to hear some one read it with a southern accent. And I could understand the audiobook. It was a great story about religion and growing up.
I loved this book. The brain is fascinating. It’s designed to make everything it can into a habit so you can use your resources for other things. It was interesting to read about all the stories from personal to companies to social change and how the theories apply to them. But it was also practical. The appendix has a step by step process on how to change a habit. Changing my bad habits is still going to be hard, but I finally feel like I understand how to do it now. This isn’t a book that makes you feel guilty for having bad habits. It inspired and empowered me to make changes that I’ve always wanted to. I’ve been telling everyone to read this.
I think this was supposed to be a book but it was really one long, tedious list of all the charities ever. There were a few stories here and there but really the whole book jumped from college scholarships from Denmark, speaking of scholarships people are giving money to green energy in Denmark. And then there were more lists about the charities that he had listed. I’ve never listened to such a boring audiobook. Ok this was only my second audiobook but I can promise you – I doubt I will ever listen to one that is more boring than this one.
