Books I’m Reading (Or Tried to Read) This Month- January 2022

It’s the new year and, after a very busy 2021, I’m trying very hard to clean up and organize my things. When I was busy, I let my organization go downhill. I don’t like it when my organization is poor, so I spent my free time this month trying to get things back into order. One of the major organization problems I’ve struggled with is with my books. I love books, but I don’t have a lot of places to store them well.

Since I’m in the process of reorganizing my books, I decided to pick up a few books I wanted to read, or already started reading, and read them or finish them. I already made a dent in my to-be-read pile of books, but I wanted to talk a little about three books that I’m reading, or, in the case of one, tried to read, and what I think of them right now.

Stay Sweet by Siobhan Vivian

I mentioned I was reading Stay Sweet in 2021. The book is about an eighteen-year-old teenager who works at an ice cream stand during the summer. On the summer after her senior year, the owner of the stand suddenly passes away. Even though the stand could close for good, it is reopened by a twenty something distant relative of the owner. Throughout the summer, she must continue to work at the stand as the head employee, deal with the changes in the business caused by the new ownership, and move on from the passing of the stand’s owner and how different her handsome relative is.

Even though I liked it, I had problems continuing to read it because I was busy and I already read it and forgot about it. I really enjoyed reading it the first time, but, at that time, I wanted to read something new. So, I put the book aside and didn’t pick it back up until this month. It is still as enjoyable as the first time I read it, but now I am more determined to finish reading it the second time that I was in 2021.

 

Take Me Home Tonight by Morgan Matson

I really love Morgan Matson’s books and I was elated when this one was published in 2021. The style of her novels are similar to teen movies from the 1990’s and 2000’s. The plot is about two teenage girls who are stuck in New York City for a night. As of this post, I’m on the second chapter. It is a hundred or so pages longer book than Stay Sweet, so it will take me a little longer to read. I don’t expect to finish it by the end of the month. I’m still looking forward to dedicating more time to read it after I finish Stay Sweet.

 

Win or Die: Leadership Secrets from Game of Thrones by Bruce Craven

As the title suggests, this book is a self-help book about leadership inspired by characters from the TV series Game of Thrones. Even though I watched Game of Thrones, I purchased this book for a friend of mine. My friend is a bigger fan of the series than I am and was curious about the book. The copy I purchased for him is from the Dollar Tree. After I got it home, I decided to read a little of it before I gave it to him. It sounds interesting. In the sections I browsed, it talks about the different characters, their leadership traits, and how it affected the world around them. Even though I won’t be reading the book in it’s entirety, it looks like an interesting book.

 

Well, that’s all for now! Thank you for reading!
