Books I Walked From

I read a lot of books at once.  I do this because I am often in the mood for a specific something to read.  Whatever that thing is, I don’t always know.

Some books are left behind in the sure for a book that gives me all of things I need.

In January, these books are in my “I have no yet finished these, but I am going to finish them someday” pile:

This book was brought to my attention by a friend who had heard the author interview on NPR.  She said, “I think you should listen to this interview on NPR.  The girl sounds just like you!”

I listed to the interview, and while I do not think that Groff sounded like me, I did enjoy the interview.

I borrowed the book from the library.  I completely loved what I read, but it was not the book I was looking for.

So, I returned it, and added the book to my To Be Read pile.  I look forward to getting back to this book in the summer.

How To LoveHow To Love by Thich Nhat Hanh

I was on a mission in January to read as many books about mindfulness as I could.  As it turns out, I get burned out on books that are about the same subject matter.

I read two other books by Thich Nhat Hanh (it is important to mention here that he is a fabulous author and teacher, and you should read him if you’ve not yet), and by the time I got to this one, I was still full.

I heard about this book somewhere on BookTube.  It sounded interesting, so I check it out from the library.

I had to put this book down, because while I enjoyed it at the start, I got a bit tired and bored of the main characters.

The writing was beautiful, but I was having a hard time connecting with the characters.

I aim to pick this one up again before the year is up.

We all know by now how much I love Longmire.

The only reason I put this book down was time  I did not have enough time to read this book as diligently as I wanted to.

I have put the book in the bedroom, and I look forward to reading it bit by bit over the next couple of months.
