Father's Day Book Challenge Update

I've finished two books. Obviously, I totally bombed on the challenge. When it became clear to me that I wasn't going to be able to read all of the books, I went to the strategy of reading enough to see if I thought my husband would enjoy it.

Books I bought:

This is one of the books I finished and I really liked it and think my husband will too.

I'm not finished with this one, but I bought it for hubby anyway. Think it will make for an interesting discussion even though I don't like this book.

I ran out of time to finish this one, but I bought it anyway. My husband loved the movie.

Books I didn't buy:

This was a "Did Not Finish" book for me. I'll try again because so many people liked it, but I know my husband probably won't be one of them.

I just don't think my husband would like the style or tone this book is written in. Maybe one day, after he's been reading for years.

I don't want my husband to like this book. Plus, I think he would find it as annoying as I did. (This was the second book I managed to finish)

I can't say anything bad about the author. There's much to admire in his actions and his service to our country. A true American hero. My husband was also in the Navy, so this is a book I thought I would be buying. But, his views are so opposed to my husband's that I'm just picturing the rant my husband will go on and I'm avoiding that by not buying this book.

Alternative books I bought:

I read this book a few months ago and loved it. I know my husband will too.

I got this book at the library for 50 cents. It looks unread and brand new.

Hope everyone had a great Father's Day with their Dad!


  1. I am so curious about Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. I need to read it before the movie releases!

    1. I hope to have the review done in a few days. Overall, it was a good book, though a bit slow at times.

  2. That's neat that you and your husband read some of the same books!

    Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter looks so bazaar, but I guess that's the point.

  3. You have been awarded the Liebster Blog Award!!!
