Reading List for February 2023

Cover for the book 'The Spaceship Next Door' by Gene Doucette

We have just completed two full months in 2023, and it is time for February's reading list. Last month I said there would be at least one new title, this did not happen. I started a sequel to a book I had listened to, but I just did not find it all that compelling.

This is not the first book in the last six months that I have given up on because I did not find it interseting or compelling. I am not sure if this is the authors' writings not being interesting or if i just have a lower tolerance for uninterseting books. Furthermore, these authors are ones that I have enjoyed in the past, and continue to enjoy their books, but the latest of these two authors just have not done it for me.

Last month I listened to 12 books and none of them are first-time listens.

This month I want to highlight a book that I have listened to before. The title is "The Spaceship Next Door" by Gene Doucette.

When a spaceship lands in Sorrow Falls, a lovable and fearless small-town girl is the planet’s only hope for survival

Three years ago, a spaceship landed in an open field in the quiet mill town of Sorrow Falls, Massachusetts. It never opened its doors, and for all that time, the townspeople have wondered why the ship landed there, and what—or who—could be inside.

Then one day a government operative—posing as a journalist—arrives in town, asking questions. He discovers sixteen-year-old Annie Collins, one of the ship’s closest neighbors and a local fixture known throughout the town, who has some of the answers.

As a matter of fact, Annie Collins might be the most important person on the planet. She just doesn’t know it.

This is a longer title, but it is well worth the listen. I do find it to be an entertaining book. It is the first in a series, but I have not listened to any others in the series yet. As a side note, this is not one of the unintersting titles mentioned earlier.

I am not sure if there will be any new titles in March, but we shall see.
