Happy February, my friends!
I am writing from the excitement of birthday week at our house. My husband and I both have birthdays coming soon so we are all excited to celebrate!
January was a great beginning to my reading and reviewing in 2019. I got in a great rhythm writing reviews and caught up quite a bit on them. And thanks to The Chronicles of Narnia, my reading took off this month too. Here’s what I read in January and my big plans for February!
I finished 9 books in January (including 5 from Narnia).
I reviewed 10 books in January!!
Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen
Becoming Mrs. Lewis by Patti Callahan
The Vanderbeekers of 141st Street & The Vanderbeekers and the Hidden Garden
by Karina Yan Glaser
The View from Saturday by E. L. Konigsburg
Number the Stars by Lois Lowry
The Westing Game by Ellen Raskin
Good Masters! Sweet Ladies! Voices from a Medieval Village by Laura Amy Schlitz
Treasure Island by Robert Lewis Stevenson
The Help by Kathryn Stockett
I started my next Classic and a book that’s been on my TBR for years (which I finished February 1st).
I hope to continue my strong start to 2019 with my February goals!
I plan to finish and review The Chronicles of Narnia. I have two more books to read in the publication order for my reread (which is fantastic BTW, definitely my favorite way to read them!)
Read my next Newbery Medal Winner. Here’s my short list.
Finish The Tempest (which I am really enjoying thus far. I’m a Shakespeare nerd!) and start my next classic. I’m thinking a little Emerson next.
Read and review a recent eARC book I’ve received.
And a few that I’m hoping to read from the library and my shelves.
What are you reading in February?
