#FridayReads – The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night by Mark Haddon

I have not read this book before. It is the book that my book club voted to read this month. The meeting is on Sunday and I still have like 100 pages to read! Which shouldn’t take me that long. I hope.

But so far it’s a very interesting book wrote from a completely different kind of voice that I haven’t seen before. It’s pretty interesting.

#FridayReads: Drums of Autumn by Diana Gabaldon

2016-04-22 18.34.02I have not been good about doing my #FridayReads posts the last few weeks so this one may be a bit lengthy. I’ve read a handful of books the last couple of weeks. I’m currently half way through my reading challenge this year! I’ve read 32/60 books! It’s starting to look like I’m going to beat my goal if things keep going the way they are.

This week I am currently reading Drums of Autumn by Diana Gabaldon. This is the fourth book in the Outlander series. It’s the first time I’ve read these books in a while. They’re pretty lengthy so I need to take breaks sometimes and read some other stuff. I’m still working on Chronic Resilience. I got distracted by some of the other books I’ve been reading so I haven’t read much of that book in a while.

Some of the other books I’ve read over the last couple of weeks are:

  • Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo
  • Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo
  • The Witch of Duva by Leigh Bardugo
  • The Demon in the Wood by Leigh Bardugo
  • The Too-Clever Fox by Leigh Bardugo
  • Little Knife by Leigh Bardugo
  • The Tailor by Leigh Bardugo
  • When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi

I really wanted to finish the Grisha series by Leigh Bardugo which is why I read so many of her books recently. It was a really good series and I’m happy with how it ended! When Breath Becomes Air was a very good book. It’s about a doctor who gets terminal cancer and has to deal with the fact that he can’t cure himself. It was a really good book but if you read it you need to make sure you have tissues for the ending! It got me pretty good. It was the pick this month for book club so I will be discussing it on Sunday. It will be interesting to see what everyone has to say about it.

#FridayReads: Dark Places by Gillian Flynn and Chronic Resilience by Danea Horn

This week I am reading Dark Places by Gillian Flynn. It’s an interesting book so far but it doesn’t beat Gone Girl. That book was so intense!

I’m still working on Chronic Resilience. I’m about half way through right now. I decided to use my Girls With Guts notebook as my journal. It seemed fitting considering what GWG represents and what Chronic Resilience is about. If you haven’t read this book by Danea Horn yet I highly recommend it! I’m enjoying it a lot ao far.

#FridayReads: The Wolf Border by Sarah Hall

The two books I cam currently reading are Getting Things Done by David Allen and The Wolf Border by Sarah Hall. The Wolf Border is  the book club pick for the month of March. I actually had it listed in the ballot for a couple of months so I’m glad it got picked.

I’m reading Getting Things Done to help me with time management at work. Work tends to overwhelm me too easily when things get crazy. I end up getting behind so I’m hoping this book helps me learn to deal that and be more productive.
