While I have enjoyed reading all of these books, it takes dedication to keep the pace of 10 books a month. This is why goal setting for me is so important. So many things have happened in my life over the last 30 days. If I didn’t set this goal for myself I would not have accomplished reading 30 books in 90 days. Literally 4 days before, I realized I was only at 29 books and really wanted to stay the pace of 10 books per month. I have about 10 books at home or on my iPad ready to read, but none of them were really exciting to me at the moment. I knew in order to get that 30th book read, it would need to be a book I was excited about. I found it:
This Is How You Lose Her by Junot Diaz was just the book I needed to read. It was so good, I read it in one day. Such a page turner. The book is a collection of stories on a variety of relationships. It’s a bit vulgar, but all the way real. The writing was quick and sharp. I really enjoyed it. Junot Diaz is a writer I’ve heard a lot about and this book was quite popular. I was not disappointed.
