I’ve continued to set myself weekly reading goals and it’s continued to work quite nicely. Except for Tom Jones. On the one hand, I am enjoying this book a lot more than I expected. On the other hand, it’s 800 pages long and it’s dense and I’m getting a bit tired of it. I’ve renewed it for the final time from the library and I’m not sure if I’m going to get through the last 200 pages before I have to return it.
A Book of Luminous Things is a poetry collection so although I am including it in my weekly goals, I’m not in any rush to get through it. I read a couple of poems from it per day. I’m quite close to finishing Wuhan Diary and aim to finish Butter Honey Pig Bread this week too.
Reading highlight of February was probably Salt Houses. I’ll have a review up for that one later this week.
It’s not looking like I’ll get any of my library holds any time soon but that’s okay because I have a few ARCs to work my way through. I hope to begin Satellite Love once I finish Butter Honey Pig Bread (which is not an ARC but they are both e-books and I can’t read more than one e-book at a time!) Speaking of ARCs, I have a physical copy of The Push and I’m so curious about it but have also heard it’s quite dark so am a little nervous to start. Am waiting for the right time to read that one. I also have a borrowed copy of Shuggie Bain that I should begin once I finish Wuhan Diary. Kazuo Ishiguro is one of my favourite authors and his newest book Klara and the Sun comes out this week. I already have it on pre-order so that might bump some others lower down the TBR.
We’ve read The House at Pooh Corner this month with the girls which was a definite hit. We’ve read many of the individual stories with them before but not the whole thing and there were a few chapters that were new to them.
In my Bible reading plan, I’ve finished Ephesians, Philippians, Exodus, Leviticus, and Hebrews in February. I’m currently reading Numbers and Colossians.
