This has been a very quiet reading month, since I had so much else going on. I was in Nepal for two weeks, and while I had grand intentions of reading many, many books on the plane, that totally didn’t happen. Then my parents were visiting. And I was reading The Bone Season so slowly! I finally gave up on that.
Past Month’s Reading:
I have once again managed to tick off 6 of the 8 books I nominated for my bimonthly TBR list. Treason, Treason! and Scapegallows will carry over into the next two months.
Here’s my March-April TBR:
The things I read were:
- Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery (children’s fiction – 3 stars – review forthcoming)
- Folk Tales of Nepal by Kesar Lall (folklore – 3 stars – not reviewed)
- The Best Bear in All the World by Paul Bright, Brian Sibley, Jeanne Willis and Kate Saunders after A. A. Milne (children’s fiction – 3 stars – not reviewed)
- Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie (crime/mystery – 4.5 stars – review forthcoming)
- Galax-Arena by Gillian Rubenstein (children’s fiction/sci-fi – 2 stars – review forthcoming)
I also DNFed The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon. I had really wanted to try to push through with this one, since I had bought a physical copy, but when I decided not to continue, a weight lifted off my shoulders.
As you can see, I’m a little behind on my reviewing at the moment, due to travel, family commitments, etc. But I’ve got a couple scheduled now, so I’m finding my groove again.
Physical book: As I finished Galax-Arena only today, I haven’t started a new physical book yet.
Audio book: Earthly Delights by Kerry Greenwood. It’s a cozy mystery set in Melbourne and I am enjoying it so far.
Planning to read next:
I will probably pick up Lessons in Letting Go: Confessions of a Hoarder by Corinne Grant next, seeing as I have it from the library. I’ll also post my full planned TBR for the next two months tomorrow.
