Read With Me

After finishing book #13 of the year today, I figured I could share the links to my reviews on the Cannonball site. I’ve honestly been too lazy to cross post, so this is going to just be a massive update.

I feel like I’ve read 100 books already but it’s humbling to know I’ve only finished 13. Goodreads (friend me and we can share!) says I’m 2 books behind pace now. Woo hoo!

Sorry I’ve been such a loser with updating. I have been reading a lot and have posted reviews on the Cannonball Read site only.

Most of the books I’ve tried have been too dry or dense and I end up tossing them to the side. As historical fiction, this obviously has a much lighter feel but I think probably gives an honest depiction of it’s central characters. That being said, I know nothing about the central characters other than random TV shows here and there, so I can’t judge how “legitimate” the story is. Continue reading
