April Reading Wrap Up

Literature

April was a great month for many reasons and reading 10 books this month was definitely one of the high lights. But before you think I’m insane, and read instead of sleeping, no worries, some of these books are quick reads, and one in particular is a little one.

December Reading Wrap Up

Literature

In the beginning of December I finished my reading challenge – I had read 50 books and there was still a month left. So I read more, surpassing my challenge with four books, and proving to myself that if I set my mind to it, I could spend hours and hours reading books! Here are the books I spent many hours with, because a few of them are what one would call – big books!…

So, here are some of my recent reads.. all of which I have read during November (yes, I haven’t really slept this month, in…
