Jan 04, 2018 My Personal Reading Awards from 2017
I didn’t do as much reading this year as I have in years past due to our traveling schedule however, a happy byproduct of this is the fact that I got really into podcasts. I am hooked. I pretty much listen to one podcast everyday now. So if you have a podcast you love please share!
Since I spent so much time doing a Favorite Things giveaway I thought that I would take a moment to go through my most memorable books from 2017 and give out my personal awards for the year! If you want to check any of them out I’ve conveniently added links. Feel free to suggest any new reads as well in the comments section! I have some long flights this year and a few beach days sooo it would be greatly appreciated.
Longest Book: The Persimmon Tree
It was entertaining most of the time . . .
Story I am Least Likely to Mimic: American Kingpin
The true story of the man who built a billion-dollar online drug empire AKA the Dark Web from his bedroom. It is a place where anyone could trade anything—drugs, hacking software, forged passports, counterfeit cash, poisons, or hitmen . . . I just don’t see myself taking a turn in this direction 😂
Story I was Surprised Most by: Ready Player One
This was a surprisingly fun read! It had been a while since I started a book and instantly was swept into it. This book was simply pure 80’s entertainment at its finest. I started it and didn’t want to put it down.
Most Book Club Worthy: The Elephant Whisperer
This is the touching story of a heard of Elephants and a man who protect each other. A seriously wonderful read. I wanted to move to Africa and work on a game reserve for a few months after reading it.
Most Uncomfortable: Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers
This book was absolutely fascinating in a very macabre sort of way. It is a strange read about what happens to bodies post-mortem who are involved in some of sciences least to most common experiments. Might be a little gross for most of y’all
Current Read: Big Magic
