One of my goals was to read 3 fiction books this month. I thought I would share what I have done so far.
The first one was Water for Elephants:
I really liked this book. It was a fast read. I loved the atmospheric quality to it. You could tell the author researched life in a circus. I heard the movie is not all that great, which is a shame because it could be done really well. I am sure not on the scale of The Greatest Show on Earth. Have you seen that movie? It’s long and, dare I say it, epic!
The second book I finished was The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. Funny, this was not a book I ever read. I know it is pretty common for high school reading, but I think you need to be a little older to really appreciate it fully.
You can get a free copy of this to read in any e-reader or cloud reader or PDF file at this link from Feed Books
It’s really a story during the Great Depression about rich people and what money can do to a person and also a story about obsession . Considered one of Fitzgerald’s best works. It’s actually not very long, either. I finished it in just a few days. It’s amazing when you read a book like this and realize how much crap writing is out there when compared to this.
I highly recommend reading both of these!
I had a little trouble finding my third book. I get a lot of samples on my Kindle and so many of the samples of popular books bored me! I have also joined Good Reads. You can click on the book below to find me there and be my friend 😀
This has currently caught my attention, seeing as part of it is set in New Orleans!
