Is it really time for a new monthly TBR? Didn’t I just start February’s? So much happened in February this year, but it still doesn’t seem like it ought to be time for March! Alas, it apparently is, so here is my (maybe-)TBR list and a few goals for this month.
📚 The Hiding Place by Corrie ten Boom
📚 Participate in The Irish Readathon hosted by Elaine Howlin, Aoife, and Leanne Rose/Reading Ireland Month 2020 hosted by Cathy @ 746 Books, read at least one of the following books or another that is either set in Ireland or by an Irish author: A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man by James Joyce, Constellations by Sinead Gleeson, The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde, Milkman by Anna Burns, The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly
📚 Start one of the books from my 2020 Read or Donate shelf
📚 A Christmas-themed book
📚 Becoming Dr. Seuss: Theodor Geisel and the Making of an American Imagination by Brian Jay Jones
🍀 Post 3-5 book reviews
🍀 Read at least Irish one book
🍀 Attend a “Type-In” at a local independent book store (more info on this later)
🍀 Research crocheting for charity and consider picking a project
🍀 Decide what vegetables I want to grow this year, watch the weather and plant when it is time
🍀 Make major progress on my current knitting WIP (work in progress)
🍀 Begin preparing for Easter
🍀 Keep working on editing project
Have you started thinking about gardening yet? In truth, I don’t think I ever really stopped thinking about gardening this winter. Although I know that I will be much busier once we start planting, I’m really looking forward to trying some new things this year! I just need to finalize which new things I’m going to try this time, and which need to wait. Hopefully I will have this figured out by the end of March.
Do you have a favorite book set in Ireland or by an Irish author? This year is my first time participating in an Irish Readathon (and I decided to take on two!), and I was surprised how difficult it was to find books for it. Of course, I’ve read a few of the classics by authors such as James Joyce before, but finding contemporary books that fit my taste is much more difficult than I anticipated! If you have any recommendations, I would love to hear them.
Until the next chapter,
