Happy leap day everyone! I spent the day at work, which made it more or less a normal day, but I really can’t complain because I love my job and everyone I work with (even when they point out that I came in dead last in our Oscars pool…) That being said, I’m thankful for an extra day of reading! Speaking of reading…
This month, I read:
*The Illegal by Lawrence Hill (My first Canada Reads book this year!)
*The Trouble with Goats and Sheep by Joanna Cannon
*Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter
*Birdie by Tracey Lindberg (Canada Reads book #2!)
*A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara
*She’s Not There by Joy Fielding
*13 Ways of Looking at a Fat Girl by Mona Awad
I feel like I read a good mixture of books this month: The Trouble with Goats and Sheep and She’s Not There were really really great mysteries; The Illegal was a fantastic book that I had meant to finish a long time ago; Birdie was an interesting and tough read; A Little Life left me in pieces; and I hate to say that I was a little underwhelmed by Beautiful Ruins and disappointed by 13 Ways of Looking at a Fat Girl (or, more accurately, by its cover copy).
All things considered, if my reading matches these past few months, I’ll be very very happy.
Have you had a good reading month? Did you read anything that blew you away? Did you read anything that left you underwhelmed?
