At least I’m not 3 weeks behind in posting this like I was last month! February saw a marked improvement in my reading over January. I actually read a couple books I was really into (starred below), which was a welcome change! Blogging-wise, I’ve been keeping to one review a week, which is my goal, but I think that I’ve lost A LOT of traffic, comments, and followers lately. Is posting once or maximum twice a week a real turn-off to people? Maybe it’s because I’ve had a harder time keeping up with others’ blogs? Maybe it’s because I’ve also been reading mostly adult lit and some older titles lately? I’m not sure… I’m not expecting to have a huge following, but it is really disappointing to not have the same level of interaction I was getting in the past. I know a large part of that is that what I’ve been putting in has been diminishing, but I really don’t have more time to commit to the blog, so I guess it is what it is.

In the Works: I just started The Death of Bees by Lisa O’Donnell, which oddly is the second book I’ve read in last month that is set in Glasgow. So far, so good. I also checked out the audiobook of Across the Universe from the library, so I plan on starting that once I remember to put the CDs in my car. I’m still reading Blasphemy by Sherman Alexie in the spaces between other books. I’ve not got really grand plans for March other than to keep up reading and blogging as long as I am up to it. I’m nearing the end of my pregnancy (I’m due April 9th), so I’m trying to finish prepping for the baby (the nursery I keep getting asked about is no where near done… it’s barely started, in fact) on top of getting more tired on top of everything else. So we’ll just wait and see how things shape up!
What’s new with your reading/blogging? Read anything good lately?
