Oh, Nightstand, how I love and hate you. You remind me of all that I want to read and all that I was not able to get to. Yet I still cannot resist participating in this monthly meme, hosted by 5 Minutes for Books. Although it's almost like torture, I'll continue to plot a course and see how closely I can stick to it.
This past month I have focused almost exclusively on Narnia. I absolutely love The Chronicles of Narnia Reading Challenge, hosted every year in July right here at Reading to Know.
This year I read The Horse and His Boy aloud to my kids and we just finished reading The Last Battle (review forthcoming). It's been a lovely month in Narnia and, if possible, I love it more than I ever have in the past.
Also in conjunction with the reading challenge, I read Live Like a Narnian (linked to review). I can't say it was my favorite or that it was completely awful. It's just not my first choice. It's worth noting.
Currently, the kids and I are reading 101 Dalmations together along with the classics book club group.
In July I also managed to read the following, all titles linked to my reviews:
I am currently in the middle of the following titles (slowly poking my way through):
Other Books I plan/hope to read may include, but are not limited to:
- The Brothers Karamazov (I WILL be reading this one with the aforementioned classics book club.)
- Lady Catherine, the Earl, and the Real Downton Abbey
- The Forgotten Garden: A Novel
- Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire (Nobody spoil ANYthing about Potter, PLEASE! This is my first time through the series!)
Beyond that, we shall just see what happens!
Now I'm off to see what you mentioned your nightstands so that I can make my own reading list longer and more complicated.
