Have You Hugged A Book Today?- June 2016

You guys! I was so into NaNo and Pokemon Go, I forgot my blog post! I’m so sorry, here we go!

ReadingChallengeJune16

I’m two books ahead of schedule! This is so awesome! I feel so accomplished this month πŸ™‚

Here’s the link to my star rating breakdown if anyone needs a refresher. It’s also up in the header πŸ™‚

  • What I’m currently reading (in order of Date Started)
    1. Outlander by Diana Gabaldon– Into Month #2 of reading this for the book club πŸ™‚ Still enjoying it, but I’m not sure if I’m going to continue the series. It’s really going to depend on the ending I think, and I’m nowhere near there yet πŸ™‚
    2. Wizard and Glass by Stephen King– Book Four in the Dark Tower series. This is where Mr. King lost me last time around. I’m powering through, but I have to say, I’m not all that interested in what’s happening here. It all seems pretty predictable to me, and I feel like I could live without it…
    3. Audrey Hepburn: An Elegant Spirit by Sean Hepburn Ferrer– This is a book that a friend let me borrow and I’m just now getting around to reading it. Because I’m a terrible friend like that (sorry, Peggy!). It’s a beautiful book and a nice read for a slow day on the couch.
  • Books I’ve FinishedΒ 
    1. Miles Errant (Vorkosigan Omnibus #4) by Lois McMaster Bujold- Five Stars
    2. The Walking Dead, Vol 16: A Larger World by Robert Kirkman- Four Stars
    3. The Walking Dead, Vol 17: Something To Fear by Robert Kirkman- Four Stars
    4. The Walking Dead, Vol 18: What Comes After by Robert Kirkman- Five Stars
    5. Hawkeye, Vol 6: Hawkeyes by Jeff Lemire- Four Stars

Fog’s Book Of The Month
The Slow Regard of Silent ThingsThe Slow Regard of Silent Things by Patrick Rothfuss

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I like that Pat put a warning that this book might not be for everyone. I can see how it might have been necessary. But I can also say that this book was definitely for me πŸ™‚ As with all of Pat’s books (I’m using the familiar form of his name because, by god, I feel like the man is my literary friend, fight me ;P), the language was beautiful, but I never felt like it was ostentatious or unnecessary. Every word used in the proper way, every phrase put in it’s perfect place πŸ™‚ Auri was lovely to read about, I loved her more than I have ever loved her before and I will never read about her in the same way again.

As Pat said, this book is for all of those that are a little broken. We are many. We are not alone. This book was a reminder that we are not forgotten and we are beautiful and we are loved. Yet another book that changed my life πŸ™‚

Extra! Extra!

I’ve started reorganizing my bookshelf and putting books into boxes 😦 I know, it’s a sad state, but not as sad as the piles currently on my floor. Stay tuned, I might post photos! πŸ˜‰

Until next time!
