Good morning peoples.
February kicked my ass. I read 10 books… but 7 of those were graphic novels, so really I read 3 books. I’m trying not to feel to bad about if, because there’s really not much I could do about it. Work is busy, and likely to remain so until probably early April. No point in moaning about it. Let’s take a look at my original pile for February:
Yup, there it is. Fail. And The Rosie Project was a re-read. The other book I read was The Martian by Andy Weir, which was actually pretty great, just so you know.
Let’s see at what I’m looking for March.
From the top to bottom…
Outlander by Diana Gabaldon – OBVIOUSLY a re-read. I’ve been wanting to re-read the Outlander books again for a while, but I was holding off because the newest one comes out in June and I didn’t think I could re-read them all before then. And I might not be able to. But I think reading while I’m super busy might be easier if I’m re-reading – it won’t require as much focus. And the Outlander series are my comfort books. And well, it was my birthday on Thursday and I wanted to read Outlander so that’s why I started to do. So there.
- Ex-Communication by Peter Clines – This is the third book in Clines’ series about superheroes in a zombie apocalypse, which is obviously just fun to read about. And I know the fourth book is out, so I should probably finally read this.
- The Remedy by Thomas Goetz – I rarely accept books for review, but the publisher pitched this to me really well, and it sounds interesting. It’s a true story about the quest to cure tuberculosis, and how Arthur Conan Doyle was involved and how it resulted in his creating the famous character of Sherlock Holmes. Come on, how could I say no?
- Me Before You by Jojo Moyes – Yes, everyone. I will read this damn book. I’m sure it’s awesome and I have no idea why I haven’t gotten to it yet.
- Page by Paige by Laura Lee Gulledge – I found this browsing around the graphic novels at the library and the art looked really great, so why not.
And of course, I’ll probably fit in other graphic novels because those are my jam lately. I know Saga Volume 3 comes out late this month, and I’m definitely going to buy more of the Chew books soon.
I know this is a relatively modest pile, so let’s hope I can actually manage it! Be good to me, March.
What do you guys have your eye on this month?
