What I Read: March 2021

My Goals
  • Start to transition to reading primarily on Kindle and return back all my library book. Yes, I’m enjoying it! I do love pretty book covers, I’m not sure I’m going to give all mine up or even stop buying them, although for the present I am. But this is SO convenient.
  • Update my reading Excel list. I’ve not kept up on this very well. Too much work, I’m not sure I will.
  • Reevaluate Storygraph. I’ve not used either of these things. I need to look at Story Graph closer to see what stats it provides, I want something quick like Goodreads, but I want more reliable stats.
  • March TBR
    • Read¬†The Pomeranian Handbook
    • Finish¬†Factfulness.¬†This is a book borrowed from my Dad, probably should finish before I move out.
    • Finish¬†How to Raise a Perfect Puppy.¬†No, and I’m not 100% sure I will, too much information I feel.
    • Finish¬†The Girl with the Louding Voice: A Novel
    • Continue to participate in the¬†Sense and Sensibility¬†Read Along, which is so much fun, and I need to participate in more read-alongs, I should seek out ones for books I have on my TBR. I love this, I’ve missed more structured book discussions. Once we are done I’m going to rewatch the movies and Elinor and Marianne Take Barton.
    • Continue to participate in the¬†Villette¬†Read Along. I‚Äôm really enjoying this, definitely prefer the lesser known Bront√ę works. Definitely enjoying it, I’m getting to all of the M. Paul Emmanuel scenes that are gems of wit.
    • Get caught up on¬†The Silent Bells¬†serial
Other Reading

Thanks to my kindle I read 8 Georgette Heyer novels. 5 stars doesn’t give enough nuance. I have a lot of 3’s of these on Goodreads, but I think that they rank more like 4 to 6 or 4.5 to 7 which is quite a difference. I’ve put them here in order of liking as best I can remember or judge.

  • Sylvester,¬†Devil’s Cub
  • The Reluctant Widow,¬†Regency Buck
  • The Foundling
  • The Masqueraders
  • Powder and Patch
  • Cousin Kate

I finished the pomeranian book (different than above) that I’d started. And I also read¬†Greensleeves¬†by Eloise Jarvis McGraw which I greatly enjoyed until it (and the heroine) took a nosedive at the end attempting to be all deep, realistic, psychological or whatever and being instead completely flakey and fickle. Ugh. Ugh. UGH.
