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’m really enjoying this, definitely prefer the lesser known Brontë 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.
