I didn’t get many books finished this month, but I’m still pretty far ahead on my reading challenge. That’s a good thing, as I may be getting busier with house/farm related things soon.
Man Repeller: Seeking Love. Finding Overalls.
Man Repeller is fashion blogger Leandra Medine‘s memoir about how fashion influenced her life. It’s been on my TBR list since it was published in 2013, and it’s been sitting on my shelf about that long too. This book, like Medine’s blog is hilarious and doesn’t hold anything back.
It even makes me want to own a pair of harem pants, though I’m still not sure that anyone but MC Hammer can really pull off the look.
Tik-Tok of Oz
Tik-Tok of Oz is the 8th book in the Oz series by L. Frank Baum. This book follows the adventures of a shipwrecked girl, the Shaggy Man (who first appeared in Road to Oz), Polychrome (who also appeared in Road to Oz), and Tik-Tok as they travel to the land of the evil Gnome King to save the Shaggy Man’s brother. Along the way (like in all Oz books) lots of magic, and illogical mischief ensues. If you’re looking for a quick read that doesn’t require much brain power, an Oz book is a nice place to start.
The Clue of the Tapping Heels
The Clue of the Tapping Heels is Nancy Drew book #16. This book follows Nancy and her friends as they visit with a woman who is hearing mysterious tapping in her house at night. Once Drew and her friends arrive, it is also discovered that a thief has been stealing the Persian Cats the woman breeds. There is lots of danger for Nancy along the way, but in true Nancy Drew form, everything comes out all right in the end.
Books I’m Actively Reading
Hopefully you’ll see these books in the finished books section next month.
Books I’ve Put Aside and Plan to Finish Later
Let’s be honest. It’s been so long since I started a couple of these they will probably either become DNF (Did Not Finish) books, or I’ll have to start all over. I feel like such a slacker.
Have you been reading much this month? I’d love to know what books you’re reading. Do you get into a “groove” reading a certain type of book?
I have used affiliate links for the books in this post. Using an affiliate link to purchase any of these books won't cost you any more, but it does help pay for website hosting and other expenses - like buying more books.
