Ellinor (1001andmore) My strategy for this year, reading no library books, clearly is not working. I read 6 library books before finishing the first book I own.

1. Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt (read 09/01/15)

Marina (sonnenbarke) Haha Ellinor, I understand you! I've started well with a couple of owned books but now I'm already champing at the bit to go to the library... I have to restrain myself!
Good luck with your climb!

Looking good...and some classics in there!


message 23: by Ellinor (new)

Ellinor (1001andmore) I'm really making much better progress than expected. I guess it is all to the amazing new bookshelf my husband gave me for Christmas. Now I don't have to store my books in boxes anymore but can actually see what I've got. It used to be, I'd like to read that book now but I have absolutely no idea where it could be. I could spend hours just looking at the books!

I was quite surprised by it and I really liked it. It is entirely not what I expected of a Russian writer. It's partially a passionate love story, partially a ghost story and partially something else. Definitely worth a read and a quick one at that.
