Amber Can Read : June 2017

Here’s what I’ve read since last month!

Amber Can Read

(Amber side note : Ughhhhh, I had this post written and formatted and just needed to add a couple more things to it before it was ready to be scheduled. I took a break from the computer, and evidently my computer got mad or sad or lonely or jealous and completely ate the post. Here’s attempt number 2 but probably without the wit and charm that the first draft surely was full of…)

Books read this month : 5

Book 1 : I Love You, Spot by Eric Hill – Charlotte received this as her Imagination Library selection recently, and we read it one night before bed. It’s a short, cute story. I think I need to read to her more often also!

Book 2 : The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah – This book was SO GOOD! I’m a sucker for World War II fiction, and this one did not disappoint. Definitely my favorite of the month!

Book 3 : Better Than Before by Gretchen Rubin – Not a fan of this one at all. It started out interesting by talking about personality types and why some people find it harder to be self-motivated to follow through on their goals (guilty), but then it became preachy and a bit condescending. Least favorite of the month.

Book 4 : Perfect by Cecelia Ahern – I have mixed feelings about this one. This series was originally supposed to be a trilogy, but she ended it with this book, so it’s just a duology (okay, I just wanted to use that word since I just found out that it was a word). This book was decent, but I think since I enjoyed the first one so much, I had really high expectations for this one, and I just felt meh at the end of it.

Book 5 : The Curated Closet by Anuschka Rees – Several fashion blogs I read had reviews of this book, so I wanted to read it and see what the fuss was about. It had some good takeaways, and I took plenty of screenshots of ideas that I want to implement, but I think this is not a practical project for me during this phase of my life.

Have any of you read anything good lately? I’ve got a book review coming up Monday. I can’t remember the last time I’ve posted a book review! I’m also going to share a couple of fun reading challenges I plan to participate in. I’m really excited to be reading more often than I used to! I think reading on my Kindle app helps a lot because I can read on my iPad in bed (especially since I finished watching the first season of This Is Us and am wandering around aimlessly now lol). The Kindle app is free, so download it
here to read eBooks on your devices! 🙂
