Off to a good start with my usual mix of fiction and graphic novels (Hawkeye! Clockworks!). And somehow I finished reading two Dan Simmons books this month, The Abominable (Mt Everest madness) and The Fall of Hyperion (sci-fi goodness).
March seems to have been a month of kid lit. Homecoming by Cynthia Voight, A stitch in time by Penelope Lively, Cart and Cwidder (Dalemark Quartet #1) by Diana Wynne Jones were some of the highlights of this month. Also my boy turned 3!
Ooh in April I got hooked on Brian K Vaughan’s Saga as well as the very bizarre Morning Glories! And my other boy turned a big old ONE!
The highlight of May was Monique Truong’s Bitter in the Mouth. An absolutely amazing unforgettable book!
In June, new-to-me authors included Rachel Hartman, Maggie Shipstead, Howard Cruse, Laurie Colwin, Kathryn Ma. And I read Goldfinch. That was quite a feat.
I read a book called Everything I never told you and it is on almost every “Best of 2014” book list I’ve come across!
I started a new comic series, Terry Moore’s Strangers in Paradise, and fell hard for its characters and their relationships. And it was Read-a-thon time! The kids ‘helped’ so I didn’t get much reading done!
Nonfiction November got me finally reading some more nonfiction this month! Roz Chast’s graphic memoir was probably my favourite read.
I’m tackling the books I’ve been really wanting to read! Like Life After Life by Kate Atkinson and The Woman Upstairs by Claire Messud.
It’s been a fun reading year. How has yours been?
