Into the second month of this challenge and I have already read 5 books! This past week I read 2 books, both lighter reads and on the shorter side.
The first book I read was "a book you haven't read since high school", The Great Gatsby. I have to say I definitely had a different take on the book this time. Originally when I read it in high school I was looking for the happy ending to the love story between Gatsby and Daisy. However, this time I realized the shallowness of both characters and had no sympathy for their situations. Still a wonderful read, a true classic.
Next I read a book "that takes place on an island", Murder by The Seaside. I happened to find this book on bookbub , it is by an author I am not familiar with, but it takes place on Chincoteague Island in Virginia so it caught my eye. I enjoyed the book, a light mystery with a dash of romantic comedy. It was a nice light, entertaining read that went quickly. I enjoyed it so much that I did a bit of research and found there are two more books in the series have begun the second one for "book with a blue cover".
