Read with me! I read a lot of books, but mainly young adult books that I pre-read before I let my third grader read it. I decided in mid-December 2021 that I wanted to start reading more for me. I set a goal for myself to go back and read a lot of the classics that I either never read at all or never read correctly (hello cliffs notes!). I have a goal in 2022 to read 50 books! I also got two scratch off posters as Christmas presents for me to start tracking some of the “must read” books. (This one from Uncommon Goods and this one from Pop Chart.)
You can also follow me on Goodreads to see what I am currently reading and my reviews on the books that I have read!
The Lost Apothecary – I loved this book! I love the back and forth between the characters and time periods. I loved how everything intertwined. And I really liked how it ended (there were a lot of people that did not though). Would definitely recommend!
The Paper Palace – I would have given this 4 or even 5 stars until the last few pages of the book. I really did not like how it ended. If you are okay with an “open to interpretation” ending, then you may really enjoy it. Otherwise, maybe skip this one.
War and Peace – This is the first book I chose from the scratch off lists. It is really good and I am really enjoying it but it is a heavy read. The book is broken up into 4 sections, so after each section I am taking a break and reading a “fun” book before going back to War and Peace.
And here are the books I want to read first this year … let’s see how far I get!
