I haven’t been doing much in the way of reading since my husband’s diagnosis. In fact I only finished 6 things in February and one was a short story, two were graphic novels, and one I had started in January. I’m hoping to do better this month, but we have a minimum of six doctors appointments a week for my husband for the next seven weeks while he is having chemo and radiation treatments.
To keep myself more focused on what I want and need to read I purged my currently reading list of everything I’m just not going to get to right now. I’m trying to be realistic with what I have time to read and what I actually want to read.
In March I am hoping to read seven books.
Save the Cat Writes a Novel by Jessica Brody was supposed to be read in February but I just didn’t get to it. So I’m hoping to read it this month.
Year of Yes by Shonda Rhimes has been hanging around on my currently reading list for months and I need to just get it finished.
The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid was the book I got for my birthday that I was most excited for.
My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She’s Sorry by Fredrik Backman is another one I’m anxious to read.
Writing is my Drink by Theo Pauline Nestor is the book I’m supposed to read this month for my project to read 12 books about writing this year.
And I’m still working on The Writers’s Journey here and there.
There will also be a pick from my March 2018 Haul Revisit due to post on the 2nd.
A full month of reading. But almost all books I’m excited to get to. I’m hoping to read more, but I’ll be fine with it if I get to less. We’re very busy people these days and I don’t know yet how much extra care my hubby is going to need once he begins chemo.
What are you hoping to read this month?
