Bout of Books 18 ~~ Day 5 Update + Read-A-Thon Challenge

Bout of Books 18

Today, I continued reading more of The Sound of a Wild Snail Eating by Elisabeth Tova Bailey. I read 77 pages today.

Below are my recommendations for books! Happy reading!

If You Like This, Try This book recommendations:

If you like historical fiction set in ancient Rome, then try reading I Am Livia by Phyllis T. Smith. It's an awesome read!

If you like listening to historical fiction novels, then try listening to Yellow Crocus by Laila Ibrahim and narrated by Bahni Turpin. I loved this novel and gave it a 5 star rating last year.

If you like sushi and are a foodie, then try reading The Story of Sushi by Trevor Corson.

If you like reading young adult trilogies, then I highly recommend reading the 'His Fair Assassin' Trilogy by Robin LaFevers. I loved reading Grave Mercy, Dark Triumph, and Mortal Heart.

If you like nonfiction books about encounters with wildlife, specifically whales, then try reading Grayson by Lynne Cox.

If you like books with a dog as the main character, then try reading The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein. The Art of Racing in the Rain is told from the perspective of a dog named Enzo. It is a must read for all dog lovers.

If you like reading celebrity memoirs, then try reading Bryan Cranston's A Life In Parts. I was surprised at how much I liked his memoir.


  1. I've heard so many great things about "His Fair Assassin" Trilogy. I think I'll add it to my buying list and read asap.

    Happy readings! ;)

  3. I've been looking for good historical fiction books set in Rome and I Am Livia is just the book I need! I love learning about the Roman culture. I've also just been rereading the His Fair Assassin trilogy and I have to agree - they're excellent YA books!
