This month is clean up reading so I can start the next quarter and the next season with a fresh, clean slate. The new books added to my TBR for this month is just book club reads.
First up, I need to get back on the series reading track. I’ve got Tempest (Old West #3) by Beverly Jenkins and Blue Skies Tomorrow (Wings of Glory #3) by Sarah Sundin. I started Appetites and Vices (The Truitts #1) by Felicia Grossman back in December and haven’t touched it since. I want to finish it so I can move on to book two in the spring.
Book club reads: The No.1 Detective Ladies’ Detective Agency by Alexander McCall Smith for the mystery book club at the library (which I have finished reading and HATED IT) and Uprooted by Naomi Novik for COYER. I’m skipping April’s book club meeting because the book chosen (by the host/library, not voted on by the members, which is not giving me a good feeling) is one I’m not interested in at all and I’m not going to waste my reading time reading other people’s assigned books.
For my B.A.B. reading goal, I am reading Colour Bar: The Triumph of Seretse Khama and his Nation by Susan Williams and In the Midst of Life by Jennifer Worth.
A reading challenge my library is doing on Beanstack is prompt focused, so I needed to read a book about space aliens. So I picked up from the library a graphic novel Star Trek: Manifest Destiny by Mike Johnson, Ryan Parrott, and Angel Hernandez.
Random choices: since the book club is already started to fizzle out, I picked up An Unladylike Profession: American Women War Correspondents in World War I by Chris Dubbs and Wild Rain (Women Who Dare #2) by Beverly Jenkins.
Middle Grade March is whatever my kids pick out. So far, my daughter borrowed Diana and the Island of No Return (Wonder Woman Adventures #1) by Aisha Saeed, Snowflake Freezes Up (Grimmtastic Girls #7) by Joan Holub & Suzanne Williams, Thea Stilton and the Secret of the Old Castle, and Trouble at Trident Academy (Mermaid Tales #1) by Debbie Dadey. I’m waiting on son to borrow somethings from the school library.
It is less than my usual, but if I have any month left over I will just start some April reads. The other clean up I need to do is write some reviews – I have a very long list of books needing reviews, even if it is just a few sentences. I lost the writing mojo back in October…I still don’t have my book review writing mojo back, but I am just going to post something and call it good.
