I removed the link for the Classics Challenge. Did you notice I only read one book? I really wanted to do that one but other books kept getting in the way. Congrats to those of you who did finish the Challenge and thank you to Booklogged for organizing that. Who knows, maybe next time I’ll do better.
So this month I read six books and four of those came from my stacks. Yay. Granted I keep buying books so the unread stacks don’t seem to go down. Ever.
Here’s what I read:
New Moon by Stephenie Meyer
Girls of Tender Age by Mary Ann Tirone Smith (my review)
Except the Dying by Maureen Jennings (my review)
Sleep Toward Heaven by Amanda Eyre Ward
Love is a Mix Tape by Rob Sheffield (my review)
The Myth of You and Me by Leah Stewart
Two non-fiction reads! That’s quite something for me. It’s hard to pick favorites from this list but Girls of Tender Age is really a standout. We all know that I love Edward Cullen but there wasn’t nearly enough of him in New Moon. I think I found a new favorite detective in the Maureen Jennings series. Sadly, I was disappointed with Myth of You and Me. I promise to post more on that later and I can’t wait for the discussion over at Written Word in a few weeks.
For now I’m working through four books but I’m looking forward to the other reads March will bring.
