Happy April, everyone! It is sunny (ish) and really quite mild in London at the moment so I'm definitely feeling ready for Spring. There's something about the sun that puts me in the mood for reading so, if the weather stays like this, I think April will be a very bookish month. Enough about April, let's have a look back at March.
In my March Reading post I set out a load of reading goals for the month. Did I achieve them? Not likely!
- Spring clean (finish) books at my bedside
- Read feminist literature for Classics Club:
Herland, Wollstonecraft, Awakening Finish No Name
14. No Name by Wilkie Collins
15. Fagin's Boy by Christina E. Pilz
16. At Break of Day by Elizabeth Speller
17. The Shock of the Fall by Nathan Filer
18. Dracula by Bram Stoker
19. Herland by Charlotte Perkins Gilman
20. Perfect by Rachel Joyce
I'm pretty impressed with the number of books I've finished this month. There was a moment where I thought I wouldn't finish anything at all (slumpin') and then BAM, the reading mojo hit me hard. Aside from being disappointed by Fagin's Boy and wanting to scream at the representation of Mina Harker in Dracula, I have loved every one of these. I have to thank the classics in there for being such good palate cleansers for all the emotionally draining reading I've been doing (I'm looking at you Filer and Joyce).
I've been pretty quiet on the blog front this month. The words have not been flowing when it comes to reviews, as they haven't been all year, but I've been enjoying creating other posts - I hope you've enjoyed reading them.
On the blog...
- I listed my hopes for Spring Reading
- I mused on the pros and cons of comfort reading rather than comfort eating
- I posted my recommendations for books about books
Even if March was an odd one in terms of blogging, it has been a wonderful month for reading. Long may it continue!
Was March good to you? Have you read any of these books?
