In the month of November, I read a total of 11 books plus Gone Girl towards the end of October and Bridget Jones’ diary which I’m currently reading. For some reasons, I dumped Alice Munro’s Hateship Loveship – the movie poster in the cinema looked so promising- barely halfway. I have no idea why it was so difficult to read after several attempts. Maybe because it is a compilation of short stories which are grossly inadequate for me. I already had prejudices even before I started so that kind of explains it and set things in motion. Most of the books were picked by random selection but I was sure to include John Grisham and Nicholas Sparks as always. Their book marathons will not end itself. Contrary to popular opinion, I actually enjoy John Grisham’s books and not moved by any form of repetition of sorts. Maybe because I’m fascinated by the law profession. And then, I’ve finally started watching Suits from the beginning. So, it only feels right. JG never forgets to take me on a journey through the town of Memphis and I’m always present in his courtroom. That is something I appreciate a lot. As for hopeless romantics like me, i’m a total Nicholas Sparks’ groupie and I’m on a mission to reading all of his published works as well as John Grisham’s.
For next month, I think I’m gonna be dwelling on memoirs-which is also my new favorite thing- and Goodreads has done a fine job of recommending most, if not all of the best sellers. I’m currently on no. 36 of 40 in my reading challenge. I really hope I can read 14 more books before the end of the year to round it up but I really doubt it. But let’s see, never say never. By next year, I’ll be starting on a new slate. 50 books or nothing. Now that I think of it, that’s kind of meagre compared to my rate of roughly 10-12 books a month. Anyways, we shall see. I feel like I need to read as many books as possible before I graduate after which it will of course grossly reduce.
