Jessika (jessika_56) Flatland A Romance of Many Dimensions by Edwin A. Abbott

Apparently, I'm into math books this month... I finished Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions. It was an interesting concept but I had a hard time getting into it.

Jessika (jessika_56) Sir Cumference and the Sword in the Cone by Cindy Neuschwander Sir Cumference and the Isle of Immeter by Cindy Neuschwander

I finished Sir Cumference and the Sword in the Cone and Sir Cumference and the Isle of Immeter, which are #4 and 5. I have #6-8 on Scribd, but I'm having trouble finding #9 anywhere readily accessible. Hmmm..

Veronica  (readingonthefly) | 1631 comments Have a great month, Jessika, and good luck pushing those numbers. :-)

The John Cleese book should be funny.

Thanks! I've had a very busy week and have stalled out a little bit, but I hope to get back to it this week.

Jessika (jessika_56) Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell

I finished listening to Eleanor & Park today. I really, really wanted to like this book. But it was filled with too must angst and unrealistic teenager interactions. The most interesting part to me was Eleanor's mom's storyline, but sadly, that was never resolved. I still gave it 3/5 stars, but I was expecting a 5/5 star read.

Jessika (jessika_56) The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

I finished The Hate U Give a few days ago, but forgot to update. This book has had a lot of hype, which I try to avoid, but all in all, it was very good. Was it a 5 star read because I've never read another book like it, and it dealt with unfamiliar subject matter? That was definitely a contributing factor. But it was very good.

Jessika (jessika_56) Sorry for lack of updates - been very busy, and going out of the country tomorrow. Will update when I return.

Enjoy your trip!


message 13: by Jessika (new)

Jessika (jessika_56) I had an amazing trip to BEAUTIFUL ICELAND!!!! I'm back now, and trying to get caught up. I never read as much as I think I will on vacation, but I do have a couple updates to finish out September.

Frindle by Andrew Clements
I finished Frindle, a cute children's story about the power of words for my 50 books in 50 states challenge.

The Total Money Makeover A Proven Plan for Financial Fitness by Dave Ramsey
I also finished reading The Total Money Makeover: A Proven Plan for Financial Fitness, which is probably not a great book to read while I'm spending money wildly on vacation, hehe
