March, the Sprint month for half the globe, is just around the corner!

What do you plan to read?

I hope so too. I'm back to school in March, so... anyway, I'll manage.

Melissa Schubert | 21 comments I'm hoping to get through The Tsar of Love and Techno, Wolf By Wolf and Salt to the Sea. If I do manage to read all three then I might start Me Before You

Melaslithos | 1645 comments So, I'm a bit late this month, since I just got back home last night, with a terrible plane trip back home (stuck in Moscow airport because of the snow...).

Beside what I already mentionned in the February thread, I also read:
Cast Me Gently by Caren J. Werlinger

And I would like to read:
Season of Migration to the North by Tayeb Salih North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell

I might also continue on reading the stories of short stories from Belizean authors. Not quite sure yet. Or maybe After Dark if we do the buddy read this month. Not quite sure yet.

But mostly, I need to write reviews for all the books I read. Since I was on the road, with patchy internet connection, I read a lot, but didn't write much about it.

Well, right now I am reading Alien Child by Pamela Sargent Alien Child by Pamela Sargent (Netgalley), then I plan to move on to Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children (Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children, #1) by Ransom Riggs Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs and then The Magician by D.A. Pupa The Magician by D.A. Pupa, a gift from the author.

Not sure I can squeeze them all in March but we'll see.

Melaslithos | 1645 comments Well, I was not really on track this month with what I had planned. Some books were already mentionned in the February thread, but here is the final list of what I read this month:

Hannu Rajaniemi Collected Fiction by Hannu Rajaniemi Cast Me Gently by Caren J. Werlinger Snakes and Earrings by Hitomi Kanehara The Jacaranda Flower by Toril Brekke Ping Wing Juk Me, Six Belizean Plays by Michael D. Philips After Dark by Haruki Murakami Athènes by Alphonse de Lamartine

To be fair, I haven't finished this last book yet, but since it is really short, I think I'll have finished it by tonight.

I realise, seeing them all lined up like this, that it's a lot of books. But the books I have been reading this year are much shorter than my average book from last year.

Wow that really is a lot of books, even if short.

I only managed to read 4, most of them also fairly short:

The Oddfits by Tiffany Tsao The Pit (Watchmaker's Hell #1) by L.A. Barnes Alien Child by Pamela Sargent The Magician by D.A. Pupa

Well, page-wise, it looks like you read more than me (I am not counting Hannu Rajaniemi: Collected Fiction, since I actually read most of it in February).

Oh well I am very proud of myself then, since I feel I have been reading close to nothing O.o

At least comparing to how much I used to read before I got my current job.

It's not so much that I want to be able to say that I have read a lot of books. It's that not having enough time to read makes me have trouble focusing on the story, which is quite troublesome.

Sometimes I do have a bit of time but am so tired I will choose other entertaining options that do not require such focus.

Oh well, hope this passes soon.
