Once I made a list, joined a book group and got down to business, reading at least one book a month hasn’t been hard. In fact, some months I’ve read more than one. My next book is The Namesake. Everyone keeps telling me I need to see this movie, but I’d really like to read it first. Hopefully I’ll put a dent in it over the holiday weekend. In the meantime, here is a recap of May’s books.
I breezed through this book. There are some really great ideas in here for “upcycling” clothing. I didn’t read it cover to cover including the patterns like I did with Bend the Rules Sewing, but it definitely got my creative juices going.
I liked this book. It reminded me that creativity doesn’t always start with Crayola. I made a list in our “things to do” book of some of the activity ideas that are too old for M right now, but there are lots we will start incorporating in our day to day routine.
This was a book for book club. I liked it ok. It was a fast read: started and finished it during the slow hours of our garage sale. I expected it to be more inspirational, but it has a lot of serious themes that just made me kind of sad. I didn’t see the ending coming, either.
This is considered a juvenile book, but there are a lot of adult themes. If M were to read it when she is older, we’d have to discuss it for sure.
