Traveling to Boston allowed me to read two books from start to finish, one on the flight out and one on the flight back.
I ended up buying In A Dark, Dark Wood by Ruth Ware because I couldn’t get my hands on it from the library. Entertainment Weekly released that Ruth Witherspoon is developing this thriller into a movie, so I knew I needed to read it. I’m into suspenseful books right now, and I enjoyed the dark side of this read. It was more predictable than I had hoped, but I still enjoyed the plot.
Mosquitoland, by David Arnold, is a YA book that had me snickering out loud. This isn’t a book I probably would have picked up normally. Thankfully, my friend Tracie highly recommended it, so I kept going. I ended up loving the main character. Her descriptions and comparisons are original and hilarious. I would read more books by this author. Arnold’s second book is scheduled to be released in the Fall of 2016.
I have three books left to read in order to make my goal of reading 50 in 2015. I’m currently reading Monster, as a possible class novel, and I’m loving Rediscover Jesus as my Advent read. I’ve been reading this book while I eat breakfast, and I recommend everyone start their day with author Matthew Kelly. For a final read, I ordered Wake Up Happy by Michael Strahan. The library didn’t have this book either, so I had to purchase it. I can’t wait to get my hands on it and read it over Christmas break.
