I don’t usually do a “monthly” post of what I’ve read but I’ve been doing such little blogging I decided to break tradition and do January Books Read post..
January: 2013 I read 5 books. That’s not a large count but I maintain that if I average one a week I am more than happy with myself. Although the book count itself is not large.. I think I did well with the page count!
1. The Dead Secret..................Wilkie Collins (316 pgs)
2. The Black Dahlia Files........…..Donald H Wolfe (416 pgs)
3. Beautiful Creatures...........….Garcia & Stohl (563 pgs)
4. Clara Bow.....................…...David Stenn (400 pgs)
5. Eleanor Roosevelt................Blanche W Cook (608 pgs)
As of Today I am reading Eleanor Roosevelt Volume 2 and have read 145 pgs. A little slow going.. I’ve had a bad few weeks with depression and anxiety and stress.. but I try to read some everyday anyway.
So.. I loved the Dead Secret probably because I love Wilkie Collins lol…
As for the Black Dahlia.. I remember hearing stories of it but reading about it was very interesting indeed!
Beautiful Creatures was an unexpected surprise of a read and I see they’ve made a movie from it!
Clara Bow I read more because I enjoy reading of how Hollywood got its start and how things were “back in the day” and of course to know more of the person I am reading about..and Clara Bow (the IT girl) was actually quite a sad story.
Eleanor Roosevelt.. wow. What a lady and what a humanitarian! When you read about her and her marriage to FDR you can easily get the impression that she helped him be the President he became! But he didn’t deserve Eleanor, at least I don’t think so.. however they did find a way to have great respect and admiration for each other even after FDR cheated on her. Super good information in this book!
That’s it for me… any favorites you read in January???
