It’s ridiculous how fast this year is going by. I did read somewhere if there’s nothing new and different going on in your life, it seems like time is passing by fast. Do you guys think that’s true? Looking at my life, I’m not really doing anything different – yet. It’s just the usual with school for me and homeschooling for the kiddos. I need to change that.
In February I read a total of 16 books, a combination of children’s books, graphic novels, and exactly one book of fiction. Highlights include:
- The Wizard by Jack Prelutsky (Thanks, Andi, for the recommendation.)
- Boy, Snow, Bird by Helen Oyeyemi
- Boxers by Gene Luen Yang
- Malcolm Little by Ilyash Shabazz
- Light in the Darkness by Lesa Cline-Ransome
- Off to the Market by Elizabeth Dale
- Mousterpiece by Jane Breskin Zalben
- The Tree Lady by Joseph H. Hopkins
- Aphrodite by George O’Connor
Favorite children’s book: Malcolm Little by Ilyash Shabazz. The book is about Malcolm X’s childhood. It was a sweet read though a bit sad. I expect it to win some awards next year.
Favorite adult read: Boy, Snow, Bird by Helen Oyeyemi. You can read my thoughts here.
Overall, February was a pretty good month with a lot of interesting reads especially with all the nonfiction picture books.
One of my goals for this year is to tackle my tbr mountain but I’ve been ignoring it. It’s so hard to read from your own stac k when there are so many shiny new library books to read.
Chris and Debi have decided that their reading theme for March will be Memoirs and I think joining in will be a good way to help me get some of my own books
read. I haven’t made a list just yet but give me time.
What are your plans for March?
