Reading

March 2020 Wrap Up

Good Lord!  This has been the longest month of all time.  I was talking to coworkers who have been off on various self-isolations.  One said she was on day 12.  I swear I thought I hadn’t seen her in about a month.  Every day is lasting weeks.  Anyway, for an update on my status in all this see yesterday’s post.

I read all the books this month.  Seriously.  In retrospect I can see I was trying hard to distract my brain.  Once I stopped going to work my reading dropped off a cliff.

I present the biggest reading month (actually 3 weeks) ever:

I read this series.  I loved it.  Great world building and relationships between characters.  Go read it.

I read this series. This really should have been three books but she cut the story up whenever there was a cliffhanger. I wouldn’t have read the whole thing if it wasn’t on Kindle Unlimited.

 

I read another series.  This one was really good.  I 100% recommend.

I reread a favorite series and then realized that there is a new novel out.  I’m saving that.

I read a few books in other series I like.

I also managed to read a few standalone books.

I started some new series.  

 

That’s a total of 30 books.  What????

 

The books I read were:

  • 2 audiobooks
  • Set in the U.S. and fantasy lands.

 


From My Shelf

I’m adding a section to encourage me to read books that I’ve had sitting around for a long time.

What book didn’t you see above?  Yeah, the one I absolutely promised I was going to read in March.

I started it.  I just got distracted.  Will work on this.  


Reading All Around the World challenge from Howling Frog Books

  • Read a nonfiction book about the country – or
  • Read fiction written by a native of the country or someone living for a long time in the country.

Nothing new in my comfort reading month.

    30 books is just wow! Clean Getaway is a book I really want to read. I’m glad you were able to make the most of this crazy time and quarantine.

    That is… a LOT of books! Go you! I’m on week three of being home, but am having trouble focusing enough to actually read.

    I’ve gotta ask–with that Lily Archer series–do the abs play a prominent role?

    I just added Mindtouch, Upright Women, and How We Fight for our Lives to my TBR. I’d never heard of the first two before, and I just realized that I follow Saeed Jones on Twitter but haven’t read his “real” work!

    Hang in there-

    Yes. That’s a lot of books. I have been working from home for only 2 1/2 weeks but I swore I was on week four until I counted days. Keep on reading. It’s a good distraction. Stay safe!!!!
