I told you about my super special awesome bookclub (The Book Democracy Book Club)where we are given a bingo card and random reading prompts. You read the book and a mod gives it a look over before checking off your box. It gives me something to look forward to every month, and helps me prioritize my massive TBR (To Be Read) pile.
Did I say massive? I meant MASSIVE.
One book gets to pull double duty and work for any prompt AND the free space. Woo hoo!
This month’s reads were:
Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli (Words Other than Title/Author on Cover)
The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness (Starts with K)
Auschwitz: A Doctor’s Eyewitness Account by Miklos Nyiszli (From Katie’s GR List)
Severance by Ling Ma (Not a Western)
Koko by Peter Straub (Published in the 80s)
Lullaby by Chuck Palahniuk (Author Last Name L or P)
Horns by Joe Hill (TBR Challenge/TBR Jar/ Backlist)
Truly Devious by Maureen Johnson (Mystery)
My favorite book of the month was, hands down, The Knife of Never Letting Go. It was so fresh and unique. I plan to finish up the series. But as a whole, I wasn’t thrilled with the books I picked merely because they were such downers. Way to read about Auschwitz, Vietnam, and SIDS, Mercedes. And during an international pandemic, nonetheless. I think I’ll try to lighten things up next month.
What are you reading? What’s the last awesome book you read?
