What I Read Last Month

IMG_476112795Jan reading and a sneak peak at Feb

On my kindle:

The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins

I heard so many people talking about this book that I had to read it. Although it was a great story and very well written I think because I had heard so much about it turned out to be a bit anticlimactic for me. I did figure out whodunit before the end.

On paper:

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

I reread this for my Literary Pairings Book Club and enjoyed it even more especially with the lively discussion we had at book club. It prompted me to watch the mini series with Colin Firth – the only one you should watch – and the movie with Kiera Knightly – if you are a Jane Austen purist skip this one. (spoiler alert we are pairing it with Major Pettigrew's Last Stand for this month's meeting)

Dress you Family In Corduroy and Denim by David Sedaris

As if I don't take part in enough challenges I decided to join the Barrington Library Reads new year challenge on Goodreads. Each month we read from a different genre and January was humor. I really like Sedaris' books and what I like even more is when he shows up on my This American Life podcast. 

 I am doing the 2016 Reading Challenge on Goodreads and also trying to blog more in 2016 so posting once a month should keep me accountable. 

Read any good books lately?
