What I Read in February

Does it seem unfair to anyone else that February is shorter than all the other months? There’s less time to read!

Books I finished reading in February:

  • Heaven Official’s Blessing (Volume 1) – Mo Xiang Tong Xiu
  • The Odyssey – Homer

Books I’m currently reading:

  • The Golden Compass – Philip Pullman
  • Harrow the Ninth – Tamsyn Muir
  • Heaven Official’s Blessing (Volume 2) – Mo Xiang Tong Xiu

Did you have enough time to read in February or were you wishing for a few more days like me?

What I Read in January

The new year started with me starting to read a lot of books. I’m still reading most of them.

I set a goal of 30 books for the year so I have a decent amount of reading to do.

Books I finished reading in January:

  • The Hobbit – J.R.R. Tolkien

Books I’m currently reading:

The Golden Compass (His Dark Materials, #1) by Philip Pullman Amazon.com: Harrow the Ninth: Locked Tomb Trilogy, Book 2 (Audible Audio  Edition): Tamsyn Muir, Moira Quirk, Recorded Books: Audible Books &  Originals cover-the-odyssey - New American Economy

  • Heaven Official’s Blessing (Volume 1) – Mo Xiang Tong Xiu
  • The Golden Compass – Philip Pullman
  • Harrow the Ninth – Tamsyn Muir
  • The Odyssey – Homer

Did you start reading a bunch of new books because the new year is an ambitious time of the year? What’s your reading goal for 2022?

What I Read in November

I never know what to expect when it comes to reading in November. Trying to write 50,000 words in a month can really interfere with reading time, but sometimes making a book come out of my brain really makes me want to shove more books in there.

Books I finished reading in November:

  • Lore Olympus: Volume One – Rachel Smythe
  • Dark Lord of Derkholm – Diana Wynne Jones

Books I’m currently reading:

  • House of Many Ways – Diana Wynne Jones
  • Gideon the Ninth – Tamsyn Muir
  • Year of the Griffin – Diana Wynne Jones

What books did you read in November? Did you end up taking a break from reading to focus on writing during NaNoWriMo?

What I Read in July


July was a weird month for reading. I kept bouncing from one book to the next without actually finishing any of them for most of the month. Then in the final week of July I reached the end of multiple books. It was a bit strange to close out the month with so many conclusions. I’m not sure that’s happened to me before.

Books I finished reading in July:

  • The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue – V. E. Schwab
  • Rogue Protocol – Martha Wells
  • Persuasion – Jane Austen

Books I’m currently reading:

  • House of Many Ways – Diana Wynne Jones
  • Six of Crows – Leigh Bardugo
  • The Poppy War – R. F. Kuang
  • Exit Strategy – Martha Wells

What did you read in July? Have you ever jumped around between different books only to finish several of them within a few days on each other? I’m still not sure how I feel about it even now.
