Hey, bookworms! How’s the start of 2018 treating you?
As mentioned in my recent blog posts, my reading challenge for this year will be 30 books.
While I’ve been devoting myself to prayer and bible reading for the first 30-40 days of the new year, I’m going to get started with my reads in hopes that I can reach my goal early.
Let’s get started with my January reads…
1. Alex & Eliza
Okay, so I never finished reading this book last year and I have to admit that I was highly disappointed with myself because I was truly enjoying this read. But I’ve decided that I’m simply going to move forward and finish reading it. I’m still somewhat in the first few chapters of the book, so it’s not like I’m cheating by reading something i’m halfway through.
The prequel to this book- Gingerbread- was one of my favorite reads in high school. I had no clue that there was even a sequel, but at least now I get to know what happened to ‘Gingerbread’s’ main character Cyd and see where what becomes of her.
3. Peter Pan
There are several reasons why I didn’t finish this book last year… one of them being that Peter Pan annoyed me. He’s portrayed as a (kinda) lovable character in the Disney movies but in the books I feel he’s worse. Either way, I decided to suck up my bitterness and finish the story like a champ. So here we go…
4. Heroes, Gods, and Monsters of the Greek Myths
I read this book back in my sophomore years of high school and became obsessed with greek mythology after reading it. The stories found in this short book are simply fascinating and I’m happy to be re-reading it again.
