February Reading Wrap-Up

February was definitely the month of Drood. At just under 800 pages, it took up a good part of my reading time in February. It's been awhile since I read a book with more than 500 pages (I think Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows was the last one that took me over the 700 page mark; I read it in January of last year) and it was nice to get lost in one story for so long. In addition to Drood, I read 10 other (significantly shorter) books.

1. A Monstrous Regiment of Women by Laurie R. King
2. The Kerry Hill Casecrackers: The Case of the Lighthouse Ghost by John F. Warner and Peggy Nicholson
3. The Girls of Lighthouse Lane: Katherine's Story by Erika Tamar
4. The Berenstain Bears: The Haunted Lighthouse by Jan Berenstain
5. Drood by Dan Simmons
6. The Case of the Missing Marquess: An Enola Holmes Mystery by Nancy Springer
7. Afghan Dreams: Young Voices of Afghanistan by Tony O'Brien and Mike Sullivan
8. A Letter of Mary by Laurie King
9. The Mystery of the Dark Lighthouse by Laura E. Williams
10. Three Cousins Detective Club: The Mystery of the Haunted Lighthouse by Elspeth Campbell Murphy
11. Dear America: A Light in the Storm by Karen Hesse

Plans for March:
  • Finish up the last few books for the lighthouse book project I'm working on.
  • Continue re-reading the Mary Russell books in preparation for The Language of Bees in April.
  • Catch up on reviews. I've gotten a little bit behind in my reviewing, so be looking for lots of reviews this month!


  1. Even with the chunkster, you still had a good month. But they do slow down your reading. I just finished a 560 page book and am nearing the end of another book of the same size. So I'm not surprised that my totals for this month will be low. Hope you're progressing with your March goals.

  2. I'm so enjoying the Mary Russell books! THE MOOR is my favorite so far. I can't believe I've never read them before.

    Looking forward to seeing your thoughts on them soon. :)

    (Oh, I just noticed that you are currently reading PEOPLE OF THE BOOK. I'm listening to the audio version myself - I love it so far!)
