I liked this less than the two books at the top but this was still good.

I Read a Graphic Novel

I like that there were moments of silence and just pictures.  Even better this book made me realize I can read graphic novels again. Yay!

Blind Date With A Book:  Round Two

[image from amazon.com and synopsis from goodreads]

Part fairy tale, part mystery, part coming-of-age novel, this novel tells the story of Isobel Fairfax, a girl growing up in Lythe, a typical 1960s British suburb. But Lythe was once the heart of an Elizabethan feudal estate and home to a young English tutor named William Shakespeare, and as Isobel investigates the strange history of her family, her neighbors, and her village, she occasionally gets caught in Shakespearean time warps. Meanwhile, she gets closer to the shocking truths about her missing mother, her war-hero father, and the hidden lives of her close friends and classmates. A stunning feat of imagination and storytelling, Kate Atkinson’s Human Croquet is rich with the disappointments and possibilities every family shares.

The lesson is not that I can’t go randomly into books. It is that I need a environment that I can be comfortable picking up books I don’t know about. It is hard to just tell if a novel will be bad just from the cover or even synopsis. I have a way higher chance when picking up graphic novels/picture books of liking it so it is a easier environment to pick up books. I did not give a lot of input like I usually do but its been a while since I read these books and stuff.
