2017 Book Riot Read Harder Challenge:
It’s another slow month on the Read Harder front. Remember how I said I was going to do better this year? Whoops. I did check off “Read a book you’ve read before” with Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn, bringing my total completed up to six.

Erin & Kirsten’s Year of Pulitzers, 2017:
Oomph. American Pastoral was a whopper of a book and neither my mom nor I particularly enjoyed it. As Kirsten put it, “I can appreciate the writing and will agree it is probably an insightful description of mostly white men at a certain time … but I don’t particularly want to spend anymore time looking for other reviews/analysis about it.” We’re going with The Bridge of San Luis Rey by Thornton Wilder as our next Pulitzer pick.

As always, I am a fairly active Goodreads user and you can find me at goodreads.com/emurch. If you have any thoughts about any of the books I’ve read this month leave a comment or tweet me @GameandRead.

If you want more Game & Read, we have videos on Youtube and post pictures on Instagram. You can find us on Facebook, and listen to our weekly podcast available here on the blog and on iTunes and Stitcher.

Until next time, happy reading!

–Erin
