I need to first apologize for the extreme lack of blogging that’s been occurring this month! It’s been very busy here in the Denny-Ryder household. First, I’ve been job searching! I can happily say that after some stress, I’ve found a job which I think fits me perfectly – bookseller!
On top of job searching I’ve been planning a baby shower for my sister, who is due with the first baby in our family in April! I’m SO excited to become a first-time aunt and welcome my niece Charlotte into the world. As a book lover you can guess what I’ve begun collecting for her. There are books all over the house, just waiting to be read to her.
With that bit of housekeeping out-of-the-way, on to what I’m reading this month!
I’ve been on a bit of a Young Adult reading kick recently, so continuing in that vein I’m reading the second book in Eve Marie Mont’s Unbound series, A Touch of Scarlet. I literally finished the first book, A Breath of Eyre, yesterday, and found myself totally intrigued by a series in which the main character gets to live inside her favorite classic literature novels. In book one Emma gets to live in the pages of Jane Eyre. In book two she travels to The Scarlet Letter, and in book three (due out in March) she travels to the pages of The Phantom of the Opera. It’s a really unique series and I’d recommend it just from what I’ve read so far.
Next on the list is John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars. I know what you’re thinking – how have I not read this book yet!!?! Now that the trailer for the film has come out I realized that time was running out for me to read it, hence its addition to my list this month.
Finally, I’ve picked up The Accidental Feminist by M.G. Lord. As a big fan of old films and Elizabeth Taylor, I’m interested in learning how she raised the public’s collective consciousness about feminism through her films. From Butterfield 8 and Cleopatra, to Giant and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, she was a powerhouse performer that rocked roles about strong female leads.
Well folks, enough about me. What are you reading this month?
