The first thing my 11-year old sister did once she woke up this morning was to pick up the books that she’s currently reading, and sit in front of the heater. She ended up reading for more than an hour. Watching her made me wonder when was the last time I did that? I used to have a morning ritual of drinking coffee while reading but I stopped. I need to go back to that. Nowadays I squeeze reading into my day. I read while waiting for the bus or at night when I can’t sleep but I haven’t carved out time to read. How do you incorporate reading into your day? Do you carve out time to read or read whenever you can?
March reading stack
Once again I didn’t read much from my February reading stack. I read two books from the stack: Lonely by Emily White and Someone Else’s Garden by Dipkita Rai. Both were great reads. Instead of posting a photo of my March reading stack so I think I’ll just share with you a few books I’m looking forward to read next month.
Madre by Liza Blakewell has been in my tbr pile for over a month now. I first heard about this book from Jen at Devourer of Books.
Pictures of Hollis Woods by Patricia Reilly Giff. This was on the syllabus for the children’s literature class I signed up for this semester. Unfortunately I had to drop the class when one of the kids became sick.
A Homemade Life by Molly Wizenberg. I’ve read so many great things about this foodie memoir but unfortunately my library only had the audio book of this. Who buys an audio book of a memoir that has recipes? I was finally able to get this at a discount, so I bought it.
I Love Yous are For White People by Lac Su. There was much media coverage for Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother by Amy Chua which led to so many discussions about tiger moms and parenting. Lac Su grew up with very strict parents who fit the “tiger” description. Instead of helping, the discipline hurt him and he ended up joining a gang and fighting again low self-esteem that he still has to deal with as an adult. I can’t wait to read this.
So now I’m off to continue reading the page-turning Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness. What are you reading this Sunday? Any books you’re looking forward to reading in March?
