My Personal Tumblr   

This is my third year on the blog. Last year I read 26 books and the year before: 30. I'm upping the ante this year and I'm going to try to read 35 books. My blog is just a way for me to keep track of what I've read, I probably won't post much else here, if anything but if you're looking for recommendations on books, check out what I've read. If I absolutely hated something, more than likely, I'll say I didn't enjoy it.

Book 13
The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck

No Steinbeck book can ever compete with how much I loved East of Eden.

Book 2
The Price of Salt by Patricia Highsmith
I read this book because it’s a lesbian fiction “classic”. However, I was not crazy about it and only started to like it/feel indifferent about it at the very end. I found the characters incredibly frustrating so much so that I couldn’t relate to them or take anything that they did seriously. Kind of fitting that it’s called “The Price of Salt” when the characters are so fickle that everything they do much actually be taken with a grain of salt.

Year 3 Book 1
Trader by Charles de Lint
If you’ve been following this blog you know that I don’t often write descriptions for the books I read, but I need to write a little something about this one.
Pretty much anyone who has talked to me about literature knows how much I love Charles de Lint. I’ll buy any book of his that I come across in a second hand store. While my collection is still too small for my liking it consists of about 11 books or more.
This novel combines the fiction from him that I love and with an added perk: there’s a lesbian storyline! I’m not sure if I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading a book that had a lesbian couple in it that isn’t the main focus of the book.  Don’t get me wrong, I love that. But it’s also really nice, and really comforting to read a book with an lgbtq relationship that’s just “there”.
