This year i decided to read one book each month amounting to 12 books. The stakes could have gone higher but with a project, report and work at hand that balance could not go beyond that. I started, i laughed, i felt teary, i dozed off, i felt that some authors needed to redo their books; to some the suspense they left me with needed a book 2 to it and to another i gave up! At times a month would wind up without finishing a book and i had to squeeze it as another was awaiting.
Am glad that this year has been my year so far since i have been able to achieve most of my resolutions and hope the trend continues. As for 2017 i double the books, 2 books a month to make it to 24. Yey and then i shall be the nerd that reads a book each week. Gods speed.
Back to the books I’ve read this year i can summarize them as follows:
Most comic book: Blackass by Igoni Barrett
Most emotional book: Finding me. A decade of darkness, a life reclaimed. A memoir of Cleveland kidnappings by Michelle Knight
Most boring book: The Prague Cemetery by Eco Umberto
Re-do your books: And the mountains echoed by Khaled Hosseini and The Prague Cemetery by Eco
