2015 Required Reading: March

Required Reading 2015

I panicked a bit when I found out that it’s the start of another month. Thankfully, I quickly got over my senseless anxiety because I decided that I will have to make do with what little reading time I have and that I only blog as a hobby so I have to wait until I have extra time on my hands. That said, please bear with the uninteresting queue in my recent posts on this blog because as much as I want to, I can’t help but post a Required Reading entry tonight after a similarly entitled entry, if only to update you of my reading progress. (At least, I was able to do some reading despite the blog silence.)

But first, a quick recap of my February reading:

  • Β Perdido Street Station by China Mieville. I am almost halfway through and I am starting to get to the more interesting/icky parts. Excellent, what’s the term? — world-building — by China Mieville.
  • Love Walked In by Marissa de los Santos. 3/5 stars. Would have rated this a little lower were it not for Teo Sandoval. I hope I get to write more thoughts on this in the coming days.
  • First Frost by Sarah Addison Allen. 4/5 stars. A sequel to Garden Spells, First Frost was an enchanting read, as every Sarah Addison Allen book I have read. This reminds me to start working on my review backlog. Too many good books to write about!

For March, I have lined up three books: a spill-over from February, a TFG Book of the Month, andΒ  The Reading Club’s Book #2.

March 2015 Required Reading

  • Not By Sight by Jon Bloom. This is The Reading Club’s Book #2 (which is actually a reboot of our original Book #2 — John Piper’s Desiring God —Β  which we decided to abort because John Piper’s writing needs more chewing than we can allow ourselves to do for the time being, haha!)
  • The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy. TFG’s book of the month. I haven’t started yet, and I’m a few weeks behind schedule but I will catch up soon. The reason for my delay is because of this next book which is ~
  • Perdido Street Station by China Mieville. A spill-over from February, this tome is starting to get even more better and I can’t just put it down that easily, hence, the decision to just do a reading marathon on the TFG book of the month.

That’s it for this post. I hope to write more in the coming days especially that I am brewing a mini-project for the blog which involves some short stories, so please stay tuned for that.

Have a happy March, everyone! πŸ™‚
