I’ve done significantly less personal reading this year than I wanted to. There is the standard 20 mins a night per child. So I have Dr. Seuss, David Shannon, and various other children’s books several times. I did, however, start listening to audiobooks with the kids.
I think we are going to have to reread The Bad Beginning this coming year. I’m really excited about the Netflix series based off of that, A Series of Unfortunate Events. 🎆
My Read Books
I really enjoyed The Visitor, Five Down, Magic Rises, and Magic Breaks. I also read The Time Weaver which I have consistently enjoyed this series, even if I have skipped a few of them. Great part is that the books can stand alone. 🙂
I am currently trying to finish up Truth or Beard before the new year. It is hilarious but seriously Duane and Jessica just need to fuck already.
This year I had hopes of reading a lot more than I did but that’s okay. My life is drastically different from when I could read a couple hundred books a year. My goal for next year will definitely be a lot smaller at least to start with.
So far for 2017…
We have A Dragon’s Guide to the Care and Feeding of Humans, The Worst Night Ever, and Pip Barlett’s Guide To Magical Creatures. The only one I wasn’t sure if the kids would like is The Worst Night Ever. It was one of the few at our local library so I thought we would give it a try. Hopefully we enjoy all of them.
My TBR Books
I have tons of books on my TBR list but I did just buy Kushiel’s Dart with some of the book credit I still have at B&N. I’ve heard both good and bad things about this book so here’s to hoping I enjoy it.
From there I’m not sure what I will read. So many books. So little time.
