Monthly Recap – February 2015

monthly recap february

Another month gone! A short one this time, though. Looking back, it appears that I have read very little in February. Oops! I guess that’s what you get for reading two books at the same time — neither one gets finished quickly. Oh well, better luck in March, I guess.

I did read quite a lot of literary criticism, since I have started the course for my bachelor thesis. I’ll be writing about Paul Auster’s New York Trilogy, and I’m quite excited about it, actually! I’m also quite nervous and stressed out about all of it, though, but I’m sure everything will be all right. I just hope I’ll have enough time to catch up on my TBR! Participating in this Read-a-Thon at the Caffeinated Book Reviewer might be a good idea…

Anyway, let’s get on with the recap!

As I said, I didn’t read a lot this month. For my BA thesis course I read Lord Arthur Savile’s Crime, which is a short story by Oscar Wilde (and only about 26 pages long). It was quite an enjoyable read, and it’s also been fun to take a more in depth look at it in class.

The first novel I read in February was a Dutch one, called Liefde bij Wijze van Spreken (literal translation: Love in a manner of speaking) by Yves Petry, which was a good read. The prose was especially beautiful.

Last but not least, I finally read Cinder by Marissa Meyer, and loved it! I ordered Scarlet already, and can’t wait to read that one.

I’ve been reading Jane Eyre ever since February 12, and I’m still not even halfway through… It’s not because I’m not enjoying it, I really am, but I just haven’t found the time to read it a lot since then. That’s partly due to the fact that I’m also rereading The New York Trilogy at the same time. I’m actually listening to the audiobook, and this is my first audiobook experience. It’s quite nice, but I think I do prefer just reading the novel myself. It’s nice to give my eyes a bit of a rest, though.

And that’s all that happened on the blog this month! I hope to be reading some more of my TBR in March. Let’s at least finally finish Jane Eyre this week!

  1. That sponge cake looks fantastic! And we’re thesis buddies (is that a thing? I’m making it a thing.) I’ve been working on mine as well and askldfjlajd.

    Anyways. Yay for Cinder! I really love that book. I’ve read Scarlet too, but I haven’t gotten to Cress yet. It’s my favourite YA science-fiction series so far. I hope you can get some reading done in March despite the busyness, and good luck on your thesis!

    • Thank you! And that’s totally a thing, yes! I’m not very far along yet. Actually procrastinating writing my research proposal right now. It would be fun to rant about our theses to each other!

      I really loved Cinder! I’m still (not that) patiently waiting for Scarlet to arrive after ordering it from the Book Depository a while back. It should be here by now!

      Thank you and good luck to you too! 🙂
