I haven't done this in a while, but January is f-i-n-a-l-l-y over and I read a lot this month - take that you sunless, gloomy, depressing sky. I've read some fun books recently to release me from my doldrums. Check out J Kaye's book blog to see what other's are reading too!
I just finished -
The Last Dickens by Matthew Pearl
The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan
Chocolat by Joanne Harris
All these took my mind off my extremely white skin!
And I'm just finishing up this week -
Rough Stone Rolling - A Cultural Biography of Mormonism's Founder Joseph Smith by Richard Lyman Bushman
This book is over 500 non-footnote pages of deep, dense material on the early Mormon church and its first prophet. Very interesting that's for sure.
Becoming Jane Eyre by Sheila Kohler
Short and sweet. I really love the cover of this one.
And Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins
I finally got this one from the library. Whew! Collins has a way of hooking her reader from the beginning. I hear there's a cliffhanger at the end though. Drat...
So good bye January. I will not miss you even though reading brought me through the solitude of your gray skies.
Happy February 1st!
Fun things to do this month:
Light candles all over your home on Candlemas Day, Feb. 2.
Watch the movie Groundhog Day on Feb. 2 as well!
Invite your friends over for a Valentine's day tea party.
Read as much Georgette Heyer as you can.
Make a batch of fudge or heart-shaped suckers.
Rent Out of Africa and watch it while eating the fudge.
Wear read lipstick at least once - out in public even!
What are you going to read to ring in February?
