Here's what I managed, and the first one hardly counts:
Cinders and Sapphires by Leila Rasheed: This was a sneak peek about a girl who becomes a lady's maid in a big house just as the master brings home a new wife and kids to add to the mix.
Mind Games by Kiersten White: Two sisters are wishing they can escape a sort of prison school where they have to use their powers to better the boss.
Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel: An interesting look at the life and times of Thomas Cromwell, advisor to King Henry VIII.
The Scarlet Pimpernel by Baroness Orzcy: A group of British guys have set up a movement to rescure French nobles from the guillotine during the Reign of Terror and are lead by a guy known as The Scarlet Pimpernel.
With or Without You by Domenica Ruta: The author recounts her hazardous early life living with a drug addicted mother.
Favorites: The Scarlet Pimpernel was lots of fun to re-read, and I really enjoyed both Wolf Hall and Mind Games too. Wow, what different books these two are to put next to each other!
I'm really sad I never quite got to Old Man's War! It will still happen, it will.
Plans for March:
- finish the Vanity Fair read along, I'm a quarter through!
- finish The Runaway King, I've got a good start
- read The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks for book club
- read Fragments
- read Pivot Point
- read The Tale of Lucia Grandi for a book tour
- read Strands of Bronze and Gold, an eARC for review
- read The Immortal Rules
Argh! Think I can do it?
How was your month?
