A Month of Reading: February

And that’s February gone. Already my numbers have dropped, and yes, it’s a shorter month, but it’s not THAT much shorter.

All up, I read eight books, four short of my target. My 22 in 2022 challenge is going okay though, I read another one for that, although I am aware that there are not 22 months in the year, so clearly, I’m going to have to start reading more than one book a month to have a hope of getting to 22 by the end of the year. As to my classics shelf, all I did was ADD to it, rather than actually read anything off of it. If I sound disappointed in myself, it’s because I kind of am. When I was consistently reading 12 books a month, I also still had three children requiring more parenting than what they need now and I was working almost full time as well as running the Australian Women Writers Challenge. I have more time on my hands now, and yet, I still keep falling short of 12 books a month. I am determined to get that average back, so watch this space.

Over to February:

Total Books Read for February – 8

Favourite book: Violeta by Isabel Allende, Loveland by Robert Lukins, and The Islands by Emily Brugman

Least favourite book: The Gilded Years by Karin Tanabe

Until next month…good reading!

  1. I’ve been in such a reading slump over past few weeks – I think the return to work and school has sucked my energy, and I reckon I’ve ended up watching tv (mindlessly) rather than reading 😕

  2. Oh doll, don’t be so hard on yourself ❤️ I’m reading far less than I “normally” would too, but I figure that’s because, y’know, things *aren’t normal*! And the great thing about books is that they’re not going anywhere, they’ll be there for us whenever we’re ready. Sending you reassuring hugs (and pats for Zeus!).
