How time flies and we’re already into the second month of this year. January has been wonderful to me, bookish-wise. I finished reading four books last month, two of which were my Required Readings for January. On the average, it seems I managed to finish a book each week, which is already a feat, considering that I have to squeeze in reading between lawyering, teaching, and wedding planning! 😀
To recap, here are the books from my January Required Reading list and the link to the reviews:
- Pigs In Heaven by Barbara Kingsolver. This is a delightful story and it was a wonderful learning experience to read about the Cherokee nation
- Ocean’s Apart by Karen Kingsbury. I have found another Christian fiction author to love.
On to my February Required Readings. For this month, I have chosen (again) two books to include in my list:
- Cupidity: 50 Stupid Things People Do For Love And How To Avoid Them by Marco and Hayley Dimarco. I won this book at an OMF Literature giveaway over at Tricia’s blog last year and I have planned to read this book just for this love month. 🙂
- Angela’s Ashes by Frank McCourt. I have already read so many raves about this and my copy has long been buried in my to-read pile so it’s high time to brush of the dust and read this highly acclaimed book.
These, plus a very thick book, A Game of Thrones, which I have agreed to read together with Tricia and Tina. I am hoping to do as well as I did last month in my Required Readings considering that I still have three more currently-reading books in my shelf and that the wedding is just three months away!
Good luck to me! 🙂
