  • A book based on the cover – The Museum of Extraordinary Things

For this challenge, I basically just went to the library and tried to pick up any book I didn’t already know that looked appealing. Since I ended up really liking The Museum of Extraordinary Things, I should probably do this more often. :)

  • A mystery or thriller – Murder on the Orient Express

My first Agatha Christie book! I’m not usually much for thrillers or mysteries, but I actually quite enjoyed this one. :)

  • A book about family – The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry

Yes, this is first and foremost a book about books, but family also plays a great part of the story, more so than for example romance.

3 Favourite Covers:

  • The Museum of Extraordinary Things
  • I Am the Messenger
  • The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry

3 Favourite Relationships (Romantic or not):

This ended up being yet another slow month for me. I did get to a few books I’ve been meaning to read for a long time, though, so I can’t really complain. Hopefully August will be better, but with me moving and all, I kind of doubt it.

Oh well.
