This was a really slow reading month for me because it was mostly get-ready-to-have-a-baby month. We’ll see if I accomplish anything the rest of the year. 🙂
- North! Or Be Eaten, Andrew Peterson, children’s fantasy ⭐️⭐️⭐️
This author came to visit our school last year and I have heard so much about this series. This book is the second of four in The Wingfeather Saga. I have honestly been surprised at how much I like it because fantasy is usually not my thing. I really liked the first book. For most of this one, I felt kind of annoyed at the constant escape from perilous situations. It felt like the same thing over and over again. However, the developments at the end were enough to make me really glad I read this one and ready to move on to the next book.
- The Monster in the Hollows, Andrew Peterson, children’s fantasy ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
This is the third book in The Wingfeather Saga and definitely my favorite so far. I loved the developments in this book and found myself close to tears several times. It is so easy to relate to Janner as a firstborn, with all the responsibility that comes along with that. I can’t wait to get into the fourth book!
- The Warden and the Wolf King, Andrew Peterson, children’s fantasy ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
This was my favorite of the four books. I loved it and there are so many beautiful things about it. I am, however, very frustrated with the ending and wish there was another book.
- Persuasion, Jane Austen, classic literature ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I started out trying to listen to this on audiobook and found it difficult to keep all the characters straight. It was much easier with a paper copy. This book has been sitting on my bedside table waiting for me for weeks, and I finally picked it back up and read almost the whole book in a day. I didn’t love it as much as Pride and Prejudice or Emma, but it was still wonderful and I’m so glad I read it. There were several times I laughed out loud or read funny passages aloud to David. Anne wasn’t my favorite of Austen’s heroines but I was invested in her story anyway.
