|Where are they?|
Yay, May! It was already 10 degrees outside yesterday, and we took a nice walk. Felt good to wear a spring jacket for a change.
Reading wise, it was an odd month. I struggled with some slumps, which usually doesn't happen. As a result, I have several books now that I have started but have put aside for time being - "A Tale of Two Cities" by Dickens and "Wolf Hall" by Hilary Mantel. I have been struggling with classics, I only read one Classics Club book in April and that is not good. My main steam has all gone on books from Women's Prize longlist - three of those last month.
What I read in April 2013:
* E. Zola "Germinal" (for Zoladdiction event and the Classics Club)
* K. Atkinson "Life After Life" (Women's Prize shortlist)
* K. Garcia and M. Stohl "Beautiful Creatures"
* G. Willow Wilson "Alif the Unseen" (Women's Prize longlist)
* F. Segal "The Innocents" (Women's Prize longlist)
524 + 473 + 563 + 426 + 436 = 2522 pages (why can't I sometimes pick, like, really short books?)
Plans for May:
- I want to read more classics. Currently I am half-way through Margaret Atwood's "The Blind Assassin", which I added to my CC list, and I would also like to proceed with "A Tale of Two Cities".
- I decided to take part in my first readalong - we will be reading "The Hound of Baskervilles" by Arthur Conan Doyle (hosted by Unputdownables). It won't enable me to tick off a CC book, as I have added the complete collection of Sherlock Holmes stories there, but it will be progress.
- I am also fairly sure I will try to take part in the week long readathon Bout of Books 7.0. It's going to be interesting choosing books for that week.
