The dreaded short month. I’m keeping my blogger resolutions so far. Barely. I’m doing the absolute minimum, but that’s okay. It’ll get better (at least that’s what I tell myself).
Read: 7 books
- As I Lay Dying by William Faulkner
- The Narrative of the Life of Fredrick Douglass by Fredrick Douglass
- I am the Messenger by Markus Zusak
- No Place like Oz by Danielle Paige
- I Kill Giants by Joe Kelly
- Fairest: Queen Levana’s Story by Marissa Meyer
- Killer Cruise by Jennifer Shaw
Reviewed: 5 books
- The Stranger by Albert Camus
- Noggin by John Corey Whaley
- The Opposite of Loneliness by Marina Keegan
- The House on Mango Street by Sandra Cisneros
- The Alchemist by Pablo Coehlo
- Holden Caulfield Syndrome (I’m trying! My goal for next month: two.)
- …No books come to mind…
- 963 Bookmarks
- So far, I seem to be meeting all my challenges. I’m making headway on the A to Z author challenge, and I’ve kept up reading at least one classic a month (I read two in January and February!)
- I’m about a book or so behind on my reading schedule for my ending 90, but I think I’ll catch up by the end of the year.
- BILLY JOEL CONCERT: Phillips Arena, Feb. 28
- Little known fact, I am obsessed with Billy Joel. I tend to lean toward older music, much to the dismay of my friends and excitement of my dad. He got me three tickets for Christmas (me, him, and a friend) and the day finally came last Saturday. His voice is still perfect and hearing Piano Man live was absolutely magical.
- Read: I am the Messenger by Markus Zusak (It’s a reread, but it’s still my favorite.)
- Reviewed: The Stranger by Albert Camus
- Discussed: Not a lot of options here…
- Haul: No options here…
- Bookish: I am so close to 1,000 bookmarks I can smell it…
- Non-bookish: Obviously the concert!
Maybe this month I’ll have time to take a solid whack at the stacks of books I need to review.
