I didn’t do very well on my Summer Holiday reading challenge – I only finished 3 of them. I did start Generation X but gave up after 25 pages because the pretentious narrative tone and writing style annoyed me to the point where I couldn’t bear to carry on. I switched that book for You Against Me by Jenny Downham instead but am only 26 pages into it. I also stared The Diary of An Ordinary Woman by Margaret Forster which wasn’t on my list and again am on about page 25… there’s a theme here…
So, I haven’t even started one of my August/Summer books, gave up on one and started two entirely different ones. Not my greatest success story ever.
The books I read were really good though – It’s about time I read both Looking For Alaska and Forest of Hands and Teeth as they have been on my reading list for months!!
Hopefully next month my reading will stay a bit more on track. Maybe.
