I'm getting a bit worried for this year's 50 book challenge. It is almost June and I'm a little under halfway there. In theory this pace should be fine to finish, but there are still some crazy months left - months where I know I won't have much time to read.
BUT, I think I discovered my problem. I'm currently slogging through a very well-written book (Suite Francaise) about WWII. The book before that was about WWII as well. The one before that - suicide. I have been reading a lot of great books this year but the majority of them are well, depressing. And there is enough depressing stuff out there at the moment - and if you doubt me just go get gas!
So, dear blogland, I'm entertaining ideas for some new reading material to balance out the list. I'm looking for comedic, light-hearted, uplifting books (which isn't to say that bad things can't happen but you know what I mean). If there is chick lit you love let me know. If there is a Narnia-esque series out there, tell me about it. I need a break from high tragedy books. Summer is coming and my reading list is far to serious!
This is also a wonderful opportunity for any lurkers out there to post a comment - sometimes I wonder if I'm just talking to myself out here! (Naturally, I talk to myself plenty so I guess it isn't awful if my blog is that way too, but I'd like to know who is reading.
Thank you in advance dear blogland - and I promise, Argentina pictures are coming soon!
