Reading Challenge - Book 1

I'm actually a little late getting into the swing of things again. I finished my first book for the 2016 PopSugar Reading Challenge last week.

The first book I finished is being listed as satisfying the 34th category - a book from the library. I kind of feel like that's cheating, as I get a vast majority of my books from the library. But that's the first category I came across on the list where this book fit.

The Pursuit of Alice Thrift by Elinor Lipman was a very entertaining book. It's about a very intelligent intern, Dr. Alice Thrift, who is more than a little bit lacking in social grace and good judgment of people. When a man decides to woo our endearing Dr Swift, she really doesn't know what she's in for.

The characters were very engaging and quirky, and they do thankfully fall into a happy ending. I almost wish there was another book to follow-up. I will look again at other books by this author to see if something else appeals to me, as I enjoyed her writing style.

Sounds like an interesting book, maybe I will add that to my book list to read for this year. I have a lot of books I am already reading. I am a slow reader to which doesn't help.
