Question of the month from #TBR2018RBR:
Have you challenged yourself with a genre outside of your “comfort zone” this year?
Yes, I have. I’m no fan of fantasy; yet I have
forced braved myself to finally read The Lord of the Rings (yay me!) Did I
enjoy it? Not really… ha! Only because it’s an epic tale and beautifully
written that I can get through the three books.
It is four and a half months to the end of 2018, and I have some exciting books to read. Also, I will be participating in the 13th Readers Imbibing Peril (RIP) challenge, which will start next month. I have three or four books on my TBR pile that I’m going to read through September and October:
- The Turn of the Screw by Henry James
- The Blind Assassin by Margaret Atwood
- The Innocence of Father Brown by G.K. Chesterton
- The Whistler by John Grisham
If there is still time, I might also squeeze in Agatha Christie’s Why Didn’t They Ask Evans?
How is your reading pace right now? Will you join in #RIPXIII too?
