Jenn at Booksessed has come up with a fantastic monthly meme to help all us eager readers organize our thoughts and books. I know me and if I write down what I'm going to do, I am far more likely to actually do it. At least, that's what I tell myself.
I have wandered into a bit of a rut recently. Six of my seven books completed in February were by one author (Peter Robinson) from one series (DCI Banks). I admit to being a bit OCD when it comes to new authors. When I find a new one that I like, I become almost single minded in my attempt to track down their catalog and read the entire backlog at once. Is this good or bad?
I need to branch out in March. First, I have committed to the Classics Club Spin for which I will be reading Agatha Christie's Endless Night. This book also counts towards my Books To Die For project.
Second, I have finally, finally found a Read-a-Long that fits what I want to read when I want to read it. Kim at Sophisticated Dorkiness and Lu (Regular Rumination) are hosting a six week jaunt through A.S. Byatt's Possession: A Romance. I read this book in college about a million years ago and have had it in my TBrR (that's To Be re-Read) stack ever since. If you enjoy literary mysteries, this is one of those that you just gotta try. The schedule is very low stress -- only five or six chapters per week -- with check-ins starting Monday, March 11.
Other random books on my nightstand include Gone Girl (Gillian Flynn), The Hound of the Baskervilles (ACD), and A Necessary End (Peter Robinson). Best wishes to everyone for a fantastic March!
