The last time I participated was in February and I had a few goals in mind then:
- I did manage to read Lady Catherine, the Earl, and the Real Downton Abbey. (Linked to review)
- I also read The Green Ember (and I strongly believe that everyone else ought to do the same).
- I began the book Watching the English: The Hidden Rules of English Behavior and am a little over halfway through with it. (It's rather long. I tend to read it in fits and spurts. But I do plan to finish it.)
I feel like I've been reading a bit too much non-fiction of late and am rather eager to dive into some fun fiction. I also really feel like I've been lacking re-reads in my diet of late. I like hearing new stories, of course, but I also miss visiting with some of my old friends and I'd like to catch up with them and soon!
Instead of creating a reading plan to follow for this coming month, I'll create a reading wish list. It is roughly the same thing and it would include the following:
The complete Anne of Green Gables series. Yes, all of them. In a row.
And that would probably fill up my entire reading month in a nice and tidy way. I just really miss Anne and would love a visit!!
I did, however, accept three books for review which I will be getting to and which will distract me from Anne:
1. The first is Hutterite Diaries: Wisdom from My Prairie Community. I'm just too curious.
2. The second is Melanie Dobson's newest title, Shadows of Ladenbrooke Manor. I've read two other titles by Dobson and enjoyed them both so when I was offered a chance at this one, I leapt on it. We shall see!
(Other Dobson titles reviewed HERE and HERE.)
3. The third is likely to raise eyebrows and that is: The Accidental Feminist: Restoring Our Delight in God's Good Design. I just have to.
The above three titles will be read and we'll just see how much Anne I can squeeze in. The urge grows stronger to fellowship with her every day.
