2015 has not been the best of years so far. Not in a it’s-cold-and-I-feel-grumpy way, but more like everything seemed to go wrong for a few weeks in a row, which pretty much led me to quit reading for at least 10 days. It was nothing serious, we are all fine at home, and for that I’m grateful every night. Also, things have gotten better during last week, I’m now planning lots of updates and posts, and I’m back to reading. Actually, I’m finding it really hard to put a book down and sit down to write and do research! For what I’ve read in other blogs, January has not been the best month to many of you either, so here’s to a better February for everyone, full of reading, great books, and lots of reviews. Meanwhile, these are the books that kept me sane last month:
- I finished The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty, which I had started back in December.
- Because everything was feeling so wrong, I picked up Kay Scarpetta #7, Cause of Death, and I found solace in the autopsy rooms and the morgue.
- I discovered Rebecca Scherm’s Unbecoming, a terrific novel on crafting your identity in your 20s.
- Still Missing by Beth Gutcheon was the first Persephone Book I read and now I can’t wait to lay my hands on another one.
Stay tuned because all the books will be reviewed here in the next 10 days.
So, since it’s Monday, and it’s February, what are you reading? I still haven’t picked up a book after finishing Still Missing because I thought the postwoman would bring some books today. Alas, she hasn’t. But don’t worry, it’s not like I’ve run out of books 😉 Meanwhile, we are expecting a snowstorm tomorrow, that will more likely than not keep me home reading and writing until Sunday. I know, lucky me!
