#bookaday Days 21 to 25


#21 Summer Read
My fave read this summer was Euphoria by Lily King. Three anthropologists caught in a love triangle in 1930s New Guinea.



#22 Out of print.
I loved Nancy Drew but I was also fond of the Dana Girls especially the older editions. This series is now sadly out of print.
 
 
#23 Made to read at school.
I didn't care for The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway the first time I read it but I loved it the second time around.
 
#24 Hooked me into reading.
I've been a bookworm ever since I started reading the Nancy Drew books at the age of eight.
 
 
 
 
#25 Never finished it.
Although I count The Secret History by Donna Tartt as one of my top three favorite novels, I just couldn't finish The Goldfinch. I made it to 40% before I decided I just didn't care about the characters or the plot.

  1. I've heard so many great things about Euphoria - looks like I need to add it to my TBR list :) I love that Hemingway book - its my favorite of his. As for The Goldfinch, I have to start it, but am putting off for the winter - seems like a book you'd read when its chilly outside. I'm hoping I get through it.

  2. So glad to meet someone else who couldn't finish Goldfinch - I skipped to the end simply to see if Hobie was okay.
