One month into my 52 week challenge, and I think this will be my favorite challenge yet. I am loving it! The books from last month were all great picks. I laughed, I cried, I learned a thing or two. Mission accomplished!
Here is what’s on the literary menu this month:
The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch: I’ve listened to his talk about a million times and I think I love it more every time. The reviews on this book say it combines the same humor, inspiration and intelligence that made his lecture such a phenomenon. I’m so looking forward to reading it.
As You Wish: Inconceivable Tales from the Making of The Princess Bride by Cary Elwes: Unless you have been living under a rock, you are probably aware that The Princess Bride Movie is a cult classic and one of the greatest movies ever made. So this book, filled with set secrets and backstage stories, is the one I am most looking forward too!
Don’t Let Me Go by Katherine Ryan Hyde: I’ve read a few of Katherine’s books before and really love her writing style. Pay It Forward, which was turned into a major motion picture, was my favorite. So I’m excited to escape into her latest fiction.
Paper Love: Searching for the Girl My Grandfather Left Behind by Sarah Wildman: Ever since listening to the author talk about her book on NPR I’ve been fascinated by this story. It sounds like the story straight out of a Hollywood movie, but it is so true. That makes it even more compelling.
The Death Class: A True Story About Life by Erika Hayasaki: This is another book recommend by my friend JJ. My daughter is a total science nerd and JJ thought The Girl might be interested in this one so I gave it to her for Christmas. Well, now it’s my time to read it. 😉
