Since I´m not going to finish another book today (I´m halfway through both Mankell´s Daisy Sisters and Krauss´ Man Walks Into A Room, but they´re both wonderful and I don´t want to rush), I´m going to post about my reading month now. I´m a bit surprised that I actually managed to read a solid four books in February. Uni is keeping me very busy with three end-of-term papers (which I somehow have to complete till March 20th), and after spending about ten hours a day on the computer or reading articles, my eyes won´t always cooperate with fun reading at the end of the day.
But, enough with the complaining. I still had a great reading month. I managed to post reviews for all four books:
What Was Lost (Catherine O´Flynn)
PopCo (Scarlett Thomas)
The Vesuvius Club (Mark Gatiss)
Mud, Muck and Dead Things (Ann Granger)
Three of them were by new-to-me-authors, and I enjoyed all of them. This month I also finally found a crime book by someone other than Agatha Christie that I liked and which is also the first one in a new series. My favorite this month is Catherine O´Flynn´s What Was Lost, a wonderful and sad story of being lost- in every sense of the word.
Of course I didn´t read any classics or German literature this month AGAIN, but this is a personal challenge that I´m determined to finish this year.
What was your reading month like? Are you satisfied?
