My Weekend Readathon

I had a three day weekend and decided to spend it doing as much reading as I possibly could.  It was my own little three day readathon.

I went the library and got myself a giant stack of books to pick through.

By the end of my three day break I had finished four books (three of mine and one chapter book with Bug) and started the two on the right.

Yes, yes Twilight is trash.  I still love it.  Sue me.

I love weekends where you have absolutely nothing planned and all you need are a good book and a hot cup of coffee to be happy.

My October Book Pile

I once again worked eight hour days all week so I was only able to read during my breakfast time or at night if I forced myself to stay up late.  Work hours stink for my reading but are great for our grocery budget!

I read six books on my own this month and three chaptered books with my Bug.  We normally average one and a half books per month but she just LOVES Beverly Cleary and wanted me to read more and more each day.  I ended up reading one book to her for an entire hour at the kitchen table one night.  She's going to be so disappointed when we finish all of the Cleary collection (and we are getting pretty close to it!)

My favorite this month was This Is Where I Leave You by Jonathan Tropper. I watched the movie a while back and liked it so much that I immediately put the book on my TBR list so I could read and rewatch it again. 

My least favorite was probably The Vegetarian by Han King because the translation was so jumpy and I hated every single character in it.  I am so glad it was a short book.

I reread Six of Crows because the last time I read it I was just eh about it and wanted to give it another chance before reading Crooked Kingdom.  Happily, it went a lot quicker the second time around.
