2017 Reading Challenge - September 30 update

Hello, and welcome to my 2017 reading challenge update.

Here's the background story: last year I decided to accept Goodreads' reading challenge for the first time, and I failed. Not by much, but I still failed. So this year I decided not only to do it again but also to challenge myself even more - I want to read 110 books in 2017!

So...where am I?


Well, as of today I'm on track! Yay!

And I have already read two more books, for which I still need to write and post reviews!


Here's a sneak peek of all the books I've read so far (you can find the reviews for all of them searching by author at the bottom of the side bar or going to the book reviews page). 


Here's to three more months filled with books. And if you want to find me on Goodreads, I'm here.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Review: Wishful Drinking

Book Review: Wishful Drinking, by Carrie Fisher, 4 stars

✩✩

The bestselling author of Postcards from the Edge comes clean (well, sort of) in her first-ever memoir, adapted from her one-woman Broadway hit show. Fisher reveals what it was really like to grow up a product of “Hollywood in-breeding,” come of age on the set of a little movie called Star Wars, and become a cultural icon and bestselling action figure at the age of nineteen.
Intimate, hilarious, and sobering, Wishful Drinking is Fisher, looking at her life as she best remembers it (what do you expect after electroshock therapy?). It’s an incredible tale: the child of Hollywood royalty—Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher—homewrecked by Elizabeth Taylor, marrying (then divorcing, then dating) Paul Simon, having her likeness merchandized on everything from Princess Leia shampoo to PEZ dispensers, learning the father of her daughter forgot to tell her he was gay, and ultimately waking up one morning and finding a friend dead beside her in bed.
Wishful Drinking, the show, has been a runaway success. Entertainment Weekly declared it “drolly hysterical” and the Los Angeles Times called it a “Beverly Hills yard sale of juicy anecdotes.” This is Carrie Fisher at her best—revealing her worst. She tells her true and outrageous story of her bizarre reality with her inimitable wit, unabashed self-deprecation, and buoyant, infectious humor.
