Reading Challenge Update

Thankfully, my reading life is not quite as behind as my blogging life.  This has definitely been the most difficult year of juggling all.the.things so far, but I’m still plugging away!  Unfortunately, between homeschooling and taking care of my family, reading, studying web design, and outlining/researching my next novel, this poor little blog has been grievously ignored again.  According to Goodreads, I’m 2 books ahead of schedule right now.  I’m not as happy with my progress on the more specific goals (You can read about all my reading goals for the year here) but I’ll be more focused on them this month as a result of that, so it’s not all bad!




What I read in February

I finished twelve books in February, 7 fiction and 5 nonfiction.  A couple were books that I made a lot of progress on in January.  Most weren’t planned reads, just found on the library shelf. A Hobbit, A Wardrobe, and A Great War by Joseph Loconte was one of my favorites, and Rethinking School revolutionized my world.  The Fellowship is always delightful to go through, but my perception of it really deepened after reading Loconte’s book.  That Summer by Lauren Willig was a particularly fun novel for me; I love stories about people discovering the past, and it was just that kind of book!  The other novels were pretty good, too.  Mostly historical fiction, and my least favorite is the one that wasn’t historical fiction.  What can I say?  I like what I like…

March Reading Challenge Plans

I’m going to really focus on finishing up the books I’ve had in my currently reading stack for a while.  I have at least 10 library books right now, and more on hold that I need to pick up.  But, I’ll save y’all from that until I’ve actually started reading them and just give you the ones I’m actively involved in right now.
