It’s no surprise that I read, like A LOT. My reading goal for 2019 is 52 books and I’m happy to say I’m well on my way. I also read a lot of different genres as you’ll see. So here’s what I read in February 2019, and a brief description
* Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert – Genre: Lifestyle
Description: Oh happy day, finally someone has written a book about how much FUN a creative life can be, why, and how. I thoroughly enjoyed the book which displays Gilbert’s insightful, witty style perfectly.
* The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien – Genre: Classic Fantasy
Description: The classic that started it all a fabulous romp through middle earth and the making of a small hero. If you haven’t read it for awhile, it’s just as good the next time around.
* Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams – genre: Science fiction/fantasy
Description: Fun and drama to book. Adams takes a really good poke at life here in the lower end of the galaxy. If you (like me) have somehow lived this long without reading the actual book, go read it. I’d call this one “cerebral fun.”
* Predators Gold by Philip Reeve – genre: Action/fantasy
Description: Book two of the Mortal Engines series doesn’t disappoint. In a post apocalyptic world, our young heroes are once again pitted against evil forces, and their own hearts. A great read.
* Small Favor (book 10 of the Dresden Files) by Jim Butcher – genre: contemporary fantasy/mystery
Description: Clearly, I’m a Butcher fan. I’m happily rolling along in the dark, slightly scary, mind twisting and absolutely funny world of Harry Dresden, the world’s only professional wizard. Yep, a wizard PI. This ain’t no Potterville folks, lots of dark occult, lots of comedy, a sprinkling of sexiness and poof, perfect recipe for “can’t put it downness.” My only issue with the entire series is that once I get close to the end (say 75% read) I literally cannot stop.
* Waking the Warrior Goddess by Dr. Christine Horner – genre: Health
Description: The book is basically about the scientific documentation and application of the ayurvedic and integrative medicine. Although it’s focus is the treatment and prevention of breast cancer, the principles and suggestions apply to most, if not all of us.
So that’s what I read last month. We’ll see how I do for March! Twelve down, forty to go!
Til next time ~Peace ~JPP
