The first month of reading for 2018! I have set my Goodreads challenge this year to 75 books which translates to roughly 6 books a month. Yikes! Certainly doable as some months I keep picking up books that I can’t put down. I think I could have managed more this month but for some reason I keep starting books then putting them down. I think I have 3 or 4 that I read a pretty decent chunk of and then picked up another. Not a great habit. Anyways, here are the 5 books that I read this month.
# of books read: 5
# of pages read: 1,629
Average book length: 325.8 pages
Goodreads 2018 Challenge: 5/75
How to Build a Girl by Caitlin Moran
(PopSugar Reading Challenge: A book about feminism)
The Andromeda Strain by Michael Crichton
(PopSugar Reading Challenge: A book made into a movie you’ve seen)
Sourdough by Robin Sloan
The School for Psychics by K.C. Archer
Chocolates for Breakfast by Pamela Moore
A pretty mediocre batch of books read this month. I’m really hoping that February gives me a 5 star read. These were all just alright to me. Do you have any recommendations on what to pick up next? I am thinking of picking up Glitter by Aprilynne Pike as the main characters name is Danica and it is set at Versailles.
What was the best book you’ve read this month? Let me know!
