I know I promised I would be back yesterday, but we have had such a hectic few days I didn't get enough time to write a post or check out any one's blogs, so big apologies from me. I wonder why when the kids are off school, my life becomes far more hectic and I don't even get time to pick up a book, let alone read one. I am hoping for a bit of quality time this afternoon as the girls have to go dancing for a few hours, but as the house is in desperate need of a hoover and a dust, that might not happen.
Anyway, I thought I would catch up today and round up my reading for the month of March.
I read 11 books this month and have to admit finding it a real struggle to keep up with my reading. My usual evening reading routine really didn't happen this month, as the girls seemed to have lots of things on. I also seem to be reading slower, I definitely don't read as many pages each night as I used to.
Here are the 11 books I managed to read.
1) The Girl With The Glass Feet by Ali Shaw
2) The Brontes Went To Woolworths by Rachel Ferguson
3) The Quickening Maze by Adam Fould
4) To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
5) Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistlestop Cafe by Fannie Flagg
6)The Book of Tomorrow by Ceceila Aherne
7) Book Doctor by Esther Cohen
8)Brooklyn by Colm Toibin
9) Helen Keller by Margaret Davidson
10) Cold Comfort Farm by Stella Gibbons (to be reviewed)
11) Un Lun Dun by China Mieville (to be reviewed)
I had lots of favourites this month. I absolutely loved The Girl With The Glass Feet, Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistlestop Cafe, Brooklyn and Cold Comfort Farm. They are all jostling for that top position and I couldn't possibly pick one as the best.
I absolutely detested Book Doctor and The Quickening Maze wasn't much better.
I successfully wrapped up two challenges this month, The Typically British Challenge and The Bibliophillic Challenge, but still have way to go on all the other ones. Also as I finished two challenges, I added two more, with the Once Upon a Time Challenge and The Non Fiction Five Challenge.
I also started my personal challenge travelling around America and read three books so far for the state of Alabama. I have a few more books to go before I move onto Alaska.
Up until the end of March, I read 39 books, which I don't think is too bad for a quarter of the year. I would really love to get to about 15 this month, but unless I get a whole weekend without any commitments in it, that might not happen. How many did you read this month?
