I’ve had a great start to my reading year. Last month I read eight books, two were in translation, a non-fiction, fiction and YA books. I like that I had a bit of variety and hopefully this is a good sign for the year to come.
I participated in the Virago Week readalong, granted I still haven’t finished my book but it’s in progress, and I just saw that Persephone Reading weekend is at the end of this month – woot! I have three or four Persephones waiting for me so that will be the perfect time to pick one up.
I’m still working on some book reviews of recent books read. Some I’ve really enjoyed so I must tell you about those.
I started a new book the other day, The Ice Princess by Camilla Läckberg. So far I’m not sure what to think of this mystery. A woman moves to her hometown after the death of her parents and the death of a childhood friend. She starts to write a book about the friend and discovers secrets. I’m finding that some of the characters, who should care or show some emotion, don’t seem very affected by the death of the friend. Let’s see how it continues.
Now, it’s time for me to climb in bed with a good book and rest up. We had a lot of rain and wind last night which woke me up so I need to catch up on my sleep.
That’s the scoop so far. How was your first month of the year? Hopefully off to a great start.
