February Reads

Ok, so where did January go?! Holidays are over and the year’s in full swing!

So I’m a bit late in starting this, but in all fairness I wasn’t introduced to the idea until mid/late January. My younger brother has set himself a goal for the year to read two books each month, and I’m jumping on the bandwagon with him.

I used to be a huge bookworm and as a kid/teen would read at least 2-3 a week. With a 2yr old and a 6 month old (who has just started crawling) reading has fallen by the wayside. So I’m setting myself the same goal as my brother, to read two books a month – one religous, one not (either fiction or non-fiction depending on what I’m feeling).

This month I’m starting off with One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp and Persuasion by Jane Austin. I started reading One Thousand Gifts early last year and got side tracked with life, so I’m looking forward to getting stuck in to it. I bought Persuasion years ago in a book-binge frenzy and have never gotten around to actually picking it up.

I’d love to hear any recommendations for reads throughout the year! I’ll post monthly what I’m reading and the progress I’m making. I’ve got a few books in mind but don’t want to get bogged down with a long book list right at the start (very unlike me, I love my lists!!) Rather I think I’ll just take it month by month 😊

What will you be reading this year?

  1. Read “One Thousand Gifts” some years ago now and still keep a gratitude journal! A lovely (and inspiring) read. I, too, am on the current family bandwagon. After 22 years of home schooling (!) I’m finally getting around to reading some of the books I collected for our library. I am starting with some Science Fiction Fantasy. I have just completed “The Prince in Waiting” Trilogy by John Christopher. I enjoyed the twists and how unpredictable the narrative could be but, on the whole, was a bit disappointed in how the story ended. I am currently on book two of five, of “The Dark is Rising” sequence by Susan Cooper and am enjoying it immensely 🙂 Don’t know if I’ll manage two a month, but I aim to make my way through ALL the books on our shelves that I haven’t read before!!!
    And, of course, there is the joy of revisiting some of our favourite storybooks with my eldest granddaughter – such fun reading familiar stories with a new audience 😀
