I read 5 books only in February, which is very low for me. I think the virus we all had affected me more than I realized. I slept alot for one week, and am still going to bed early. I am disappointed however, I usually try to read 8, and am aiming for 10 books per month this year, to try to reach my 100 books goal. Right, so I am going to have to read, read, read, in March!
February Book totals
1. Dragonsinger - Anne McCaffrey
2. Dragondrums - '' ''
3. Moving Mars - Greg Bear
4. The Harper's Quine - Pat McIntosh
5. Where Late the Sweet Birds Sang - Kate Wilhelm
I enjoyed them all very much, though I think Moving Mars will be my favourite of the month. The Harper Hall Trilogy are really close behind, though.
That said, I am finding I am longing for some Jane Austen and other classics, to read The Morville Hours, to read my library books - especially Connie Willis. Then yesterday I went to Chapters and discovered they have a buy 3, get one free deal going on all their books. So, naturally, I found some!
Books bought last night:
Directive 51 - John Barnes
The Man on the Balcony - Maj Sjowall/Per Wahloo (#3 in the series)
Sworn to Silence - Linda Castillo (Amish murder mystery, looks fascinating)
Raising Stony Mayhall - Daryl Gregory (zombies!!! looks very good)
This looks like my reading history for the last year, with mystery, science fiction, and horror making the major total of what I read. I really want to read Raising Stony Mayhall, it sounds so interesting too. For someone who has nightmares about zombies, I seem to be reading my fair share of their fiction recently (and really enjoying it. They still give me the creeps, absolutely, though).
Things I'm thinking of doing:
This is a book blog, and yet I have been failing spectacularly at reviewing the books I'm reading. This is never because I don't like the books, it's because I just don't get around to reviewing them. I've decided that I am going to start a random post called Books I Should Have Reviewed. This will give me the freedom to look at the books that I've read recently and not reviewed, as well as go through my blog history and pick books from previous years that I haven't reviewed yet. I also hope it will get me posting more regularly again.
So how was your February reading? Are you pleased with it, or did life sneak in, as it often does?
