February has been a busy month and I only had time to read three books! I feel like a slacker!
Eligible by Curtis Sittenfeild takes top spot as as my least favorite book of 2017 so far. We read this as our February book club pick because it is "a modern retelling of Pride and Prejudice." Normally I love retellings however, this one bored me to death. I didn't like the story line, the characters, or the author. However, about half of our club loved it.
The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne is a book I have been meaning to read for years. I picked it up at 2nd and Charles almost a year ago and I finally opened it this month. I loved every minute of it, expect for the end. This is a beautiful story that I can see myself reading again and again.
Where do I start with Wild by Cheryl Strayed? I listened to this book on audio and I must admit that I did tune it out a couple of times (I also skipped the horse part, if you have read this book or watched the movie, you know why). I liked the idea of hiking a trail to get clarity on your life. However, Cheryl left for the trail to make better decisions and that didn't exactly happen. I could have done with a lot less toenail talk.
