The Official List of Books Read In February

This post is about me tackling one of my 2013 resolutions. Won't you follow along?

Well, February was not a great month for trying to read. I was driving to work quite a bit and things were happening in the evening and it just didn't happen. Hopefully this month is a little better in that regard. That picture up top was taken at Book & Pie Club last week. Pretty fun and nice to see some lady friends!

9. "Skinny Bitch" by Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin
10. "Cloud Atlas: A Novel" by David Mitchell

I did not like "Skinny Bitch" really at all. The way it was written annoyed me and I could see this book as only being good for people who had zero clue at how the choices they make on a daily basis in life affect their bodies. I guess if you really needed to start somewhere and could get past the naggy way it was written it would be a great book.

I stopped reading "Cloud Atlas" in the second section. I don't usually just stop reading books, but I couldn't pay attention at all to it. Many of my girlfriends loved it, though!

I really, really liked "Waste and Want." It was SO interesting!! I would definitely recommend it! I got three books at Book & Pie Club so I'll start reading those soon.

Past months of books read: January.

  1. Thanks for the recommendations. I'm always looking for a good book to read.

  2. Oh my... go you! I honestly haven't read an entire book in months. Anytime I have writing to do (fiction) I feel like I have to stay away from most books because I tend to accidentally mimic style. I SO need to read again though. I agree with Skinny Bitch. And, I can't get through Cloud Atlas though my husband swears it is amazing.

    1. I think "Cloud Atlas" is one of those "love it or hate it" books, like there is no in-between. My other friends that read it all LOVED it and had really big emotional responses to it.
