It's hard to believe that it's already summer. This means more time outdoors and lots of summer reading. As I line up which books to read during this season, I'm reflecting on my completed spring challenge, which I took right down to the wire.
My challenge was to "spring clean" my reading piles by participating in Spring Reading Thing 2013 hosted by Sandra at The Musings of a Book Addict. Here are the five books I chose to read:
These books were wonderful and enjoyable in their own ways. Briefly stated, Beautiful Ruins and The Book of Lost Fragrances are rich with interesting characters and exotic locales; Me Before You is a thought-provoking look at the impact of a tragic occurrence on family relationships; Fonduing Fathers is the latest entertaining installment in the White House Chef series which I adore; and Cinder is an imaginative, futuristic retelling of Cinderella.
While this only made a small dent in my book piles, meeting the goal has created an exhilarating forward momentum for more summer reading.
Enjoy life with books . . .
