What I Read in May 2021

Eight books read in May – I am picking up steam a bit! I stuck to almost exclusively fiction in May, with one non-fiction self-help-y book thrown in. (Though there were several historical fiction novels… so maybe that counts for something?) These days, I am finding the compelling storylines of novels to keep me reading much more than nonfiction. 5 stars: The Book of Lost Names, by Kristin Harmel: I picked this up on a night I intended to go {Read More}

What I Read in April 2021

I read nine books in April, which was my most prolific month of reading yet. I’m thrilled by that! I think the trick was reading a lot of novels, which I’ve been enjoying more than nonfiction lately. However, I did sneak a few nonfiction (and historical fiction) books in… 4 stars: To Sir, with Love, by Lauren Layne: This was such a sweet and fun rom com!

What I Read in March 2021

I didn’t read quite as much in March as I would have liked, but I did read five books, all novels – I found they kept me turning the pages! I seem to have moved away from non-fiction in the last year, and I think that’s okay. There is so much non-fiction reading I’m doing for work and in my personal life, to understand COVID19 and how the world is changing, that maybe it’s okay for me to stick to {Read More}

What I Read in February 2021

Oops – not only am I really late getting this post up, but I also only read six books in February… and one was a picture book! (Recommended by my ski school trainer.) This was a busy month, but because it was also a short one, this means I’m only two books behind on where I need to be to hit 100 books by the end of the year. I can catch up! 5 stars: The Secret Bridesmaid, by Katy {Read More}

What I Read in January 2021

Buoyed by my success at reading 100 books in 2020, I wanted to start 2021 strong – and I did! 8 books read in January, which puts me exactly on track for my goal. I stalled out a bit when I found that reading nonfiction made me less eager to read at all, but I picked up some light fiction to break it up, and discovered that when I had a book I was eager to read, I made a {Read More}

What I Read in December 2020

I only read seven books in December – a bit less than the pace I was hitting earlier in the year, especially since I had a vacation at the end (though I spent it teaching skiing instead of purely relaxing). But that still means I read 101 books in 2020, which is one more than my goal of reading 100! This is the first year since 2017 that I’ve hit my goal, and I’m hoping I can keep up the {Read More}

What I Read in November 2020

Whoops, totally missed getting this posted sooner! I only read five books in November, but that still puts me well ahead of pace to hit 100 books this year. While many of my goals have changed this year due to COVID19, I’m thrilled that my 100 book goal is one that I am definitely going to hit. 4 stars: Christmas at the Island Hotel, by Jenny Colgan: I hadn’t read the Mure books in a little while, but Jenny Colgan {Read More}

What I Read in October 2020

I read seven books in the month of October – not as much as I was reading at the height of quarantine this spring, but still more than this summer. (I would imagine that I will be reading even more in November and December, as the weather gets colder and I’m less able to hit the trails.) That puts me at 88 books read in 2020, which is six ahead of where I need to be to hit 100 books {Read More}

What I Read in September 2020

I read a bit less in September than in previous months – it was a busy month for me! But I still read five books, which keeps me six books ahead of my goal to read 100 books in 2020. I can’t believe we’re already into the last quarter of 2020; this is going to be a good year of reading, for sure! 4 stars: Beach Read, by Emily Henry: This came highly recommended, and I thought it was good, {Read More}

What I Read in August 2020

I read 12 books in the month of August! That’s a significant step up for me, and I’m really glad my reading game is back on (rather than me just socializing and never taking time to read). I’m currently at 77 books read in 2020, which is 10 ahead of my goal to read 100 by the end of the year. Going to keep this momentum up in September, for sure! 5 stars: Rodham, by Curtis Sittenfeld: I love, love, {Read More}
