Spring is truly upon us now! The weather here in Minnesota has been really amazing for February and it looks as though that will continue in March. I’ve certainly been enjoying the warmer temperatures and look forward to what March will bring both in terms of weather and reading!


Here’s what I planned to read this month, what I actually read and what I’m planning to read in March!


February 2017 TBR List:
  1. White Trash, Nancy Isenberg (finish)
  2. The Two Towers, J.R.R. Tolkien
  3. March, John Lewis, Andrew Aydin, Nate Powell
  4. 1984, George Orwell
  5. A selection of African American poetry, various authors


Actual February Reads:
  1. The Two Towers, J.R.R. Tolkien (in part)
  2. The Hobbit, J.R.R. Tolkien
  3. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (Screenplay), by J.K. Rowling
  4. A selection of African American poetry, various authors


A short month ended up yielding a short reading list for me as well. I didn’t get to two of the books from my list, but I just ran out of time and had other things going on. I switched up a lot of my reading plan for February, taking out two books and instead adding in The Hobbit so that I could participate in a group read with some friends. I didn’t get an enormous amount of reading done this month in general. It happens!



Monthly Favorite

I have to say my favorite read of this month was The HobbitThis has long been one of my very favorite books and my reread of it this month was no less enjoyable. When you return to certain books there’s almost a feeling of homecoming. Returning to the Shire and to that familiar cast of characters is such a treat.


March 2017 TBR List:
  1. The Alchemist, Paulo Coelho
  2. White Trash, Nancy Isenberg (finish)
  3. Writing Down the Bones, Natalie Goldberg
  4. The Two Towers, J.R.R. Tolkien (finish)
  5. March, John Lewis, Andrew Aydin, Nate Powell
  6. The Return of the King, J.R.R. Tolkien


Middle Earth March

We’ve got another group read coming up in March, celebrating the works of J.R.R. Tolkien. I’ll be joining in for half of The Two Towers and The Return of the King part of the way into the month. If you’d like to join, there’s no reading schedule, just jump in with whatever Tolkien book you’d like at any time! Whether or not you have time to join in on the reading, you can participate in posting Tolkien-themed photos on Instagram using #MiddleEarthMarch. Search the tag to see what others are posting and to get the full list of prompts!


What are you looking forward to reading in March?
