Annabel’s Books read March

This month has been so busy. I didn’t get as much reading done as I’d planned – or anything else for that matter.

I have a confession to make too!  I read a non-TBR book for my blog – The White Hare by Michael Fishwick – I wanted to take part in the blog tour for its publication (review here).

Here’s a photo of what I read in March (including the Sarah Dunant which should have been in February’s photo).

Of those pictured above, the ultra-slim Abigail’s Party and Mother of Darkness are also non-TBR books – but were review copies for Shiny so excepted.

This makes just 5 books from the TBR in March (I realise I’ve included Mr Pye in Feb and March).

So in total I managed just 15 books from my TBR in three months…

How did you do?

Annabel’s February reads

I read 10 books in February  (one not pictured, and I’m counting the 3 Ladybird expert books as 1 as they total approx 75 pages of text).

Strictly speaking, the Ladybird books and my tenth book – the new Sarah Dunant were cheats, as I got them this year – but both were to be reviewed for Shiny New Books, so are among my permitted exceptions, as not for my blog.  Will you allow me that?

Of the rest, three came from my TBR shelves (Peake, Porter and Zink), the rest were review copies I had before Jan 1.  I’d particularly recommend Paradise City by Joe Thomas (reviewed here), Swimming Lessons by Claire Fuller and English Animals by Laura Kaye.)

Can’t wait to hear how my co-host Lizzy is doing, and you too…

Have you cheated yet? Is it still fun?
