At the beginning of the year, I decided to participate in the Embarrassment of Riches reading challenge hosted by Author Patricia Burroughs. The goal of the challenge is to make a dent in that stack of books I’ve intended to read, but never found the time.
This month I read:
The Cold War – A New History by John Lewis Gaddis – This is non-fiction and as the title suggests, a historical overview of the Cold War from its postwar inception until its end in the early 1990s. It was a fascinating read and I enjoyed Gaddis’ easy writing style and occasional sarcastic barb aimed at those leaders he felt lacking. *cough cough Kennedy cough cough*
Slightly Dangerous – Mary Balogh – No one have a heart attack. This is indeed a romance novel. I do enjoy a good romance every now and then. This one I particularly enjoyed, probably because it is a take on Pride & Prejudice. I like it so much I might put in the “will read again” stack.
Moscow Rules – Daniel Silva – This is the 8th or 9th installment in the Gabriel Allon series I’ve been working my way through for a while now. I must say, it was not my favorite – I would even go so far as to say I didn’t like it. Yikes. I hope I’m not coming down with a case of Silva fatigue. I have to get through book 12 or 13 (I’ve lost count) before the next one comes out this summer.
My goal is silver so I’ve read 3 out of 24.
I’ll take that considering I can be a painfully slow reader.
So, what are you reading? What’s in your TBR stack?
