I loved doing the Scones and Crackers read-a-thon last week. I hope that any of you that joined in enjoyed it as well.
I plan on trying to do another one around the beginning of 2017.
So keep that in mind and I will announce that sometime in December or January.
I was able to get a lot of reading done last week! I picked quite a few shorter books that only took a couple hours to read so I was able to get done even more than I thought I could.
I will briefly share what I read but I will go into more detail about each book in individual reviews to come! I will link each one to the reviews as they are posted.
I was able to mark off each of the challenges:
1) A book by one of your favorite British authors:
For this one I read Stancliffe's Hotel by Charlotte Bronte.
2) A non-fiction book:
For my non-fiction category I read C. S. Lewis' autobiography, Surprised by Joy.
3) A book of poetry:
I read The Golden Store, an illustrated selection of poetry by William Wordsworth.
4) A play:
I read Much Ado About Nothing by William Shakespeare.
5) A book that takes place in your favorite British location:
Towers in the Mist by Elizabeth Goudge takes place in Oxford which was one of my very favorite places we visited in England.
I still had a couple of days left and so I was able to read two more books.
First I read Billy and Me by Giovanna Fletcher. It was a bit longer but it was a really easy read so only took a couple of days.
I had one more C.S. Lewis book and another Jane Austen book that I was hoping to get to but we ended up having a really busy weekend where I didn't get very much reading done.
I had a little time on Saturday and Sunday so I grabbed Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen adapted into a graphic novel by Nancy Butler and Sunny Liew.
Because it as a graphic novel it only took a couple of hours.
Overall it was a great reading week. There weren't any that I hated and only two that I didn't love.
More to come!
