year of books – june

2014 goals, reading

I finished my June read a couple weeks ago, but life is busy you guys! And I haven’t gotten around to writing it down before now. And I just know you’ve been waiting on pins and needles.

I picked up Maria Semple‘s “Where’d you go, Bernadette?” on a whim while at the bookstore looking for something else. I’ve been hearing chatter about it for a while, so when I saw it, I already knew I would like it. 
I loved it. It was so fun and quick to read. So quick that I started it Friday evening and finished it Saturday afternoon. It was so fun and quirky; it was just the break I needed from all the heavy Alaska stuff.
On that note, I decided not to finish “Spirited Waters.” It’s a fine book, but not quite my blend of tea. So I’m done feeling guilty about not finishing it. 🙂  
Anyway, I’m on to start and power through Game of Thrones. I started book one last week, and I’m more than halfway through. It’s fantastic. I have book two at the ready.
I also picked up “Tiny Beautiful Things: Advice on love and life from Dear Sugar,” by Cheryl Strayed.  She is the author of “Wild,” which I read while moving to Alaska last year and loved so much. I’ve heard so many good things about this one, and I’m excited to get into it.
