Hello friends, this week saw the beginning of a new month, and so, it is time to reflect back on my February reading. It has been a busy, rollercoaster month that has flown by in a blink of an eye for me, where I haven’t always found much time for reading, however here are the wonderful books I have been enjoying:
I started the month off with my second bout of Covid-19 and the utterly charming children’s classic, Anne of Avonlea by L.M. Montgomery, which was published in 1909. Whether bundled up in a blanket or soaking in a hot bath, it was wonderful to escape into more adventures with the imaginative and spirited Anne Shirley, as she starts working as a school teacher, makes new friends, helps bring up twins, and organises improving the town. Just what I needed.
Once I was all better and it was the school’s half-term break, I started re-reading the chunky young-adult fantasy, Eldest by Christopher Paolini, the second book from Paolini’s bestselling The Inheritance Cycle series, which was published in 2005. I have really enjoyed reacquainting myself with the next leg of Eragon and Saphira’s journey and training. Unfortunately, work, tiredness and general busy-ness slowed my reading down, but I am very close to finishing now.
Also, throughout February, I have been dipping in and out of the Christian non-fiction, Pray For Us by Meg Hunter-Kilmer, published just in 2021; a very interesting read exploring the lesser-known lives of seventy-five extraordinary people whose human struggles and limitations reveal the power of God’s grace. As well as the Celtic Daily Prayer: Book One by the Northumbria Community and my Holy Bible.
While that is actually only one book finished in February, what a lot of great reading I have managed to squeeze into what was a very full on month. Plus that one book was a cracker! So I am happy to announce that the children’s classic, Anne of Avonlea by L.M. Montgomery is my also my pick of the month! 🏆
