Hey! I finished reading my tenth book of the year last night!
I’m so glad I decided on a 35-book challenge this year; it makes for a gentler reading pace, especially since I’m writing at the moment as well.
Here is my list. Click on the title links if you’re curious about my reviews (the one for Silence, I warn you, is basically an essay) What are you guys reading or what have you read?
