That was the month that was February 2014

Well after a bright start in January to my blogging year my blog went of the rails slightly last month ,but I had Amanda in hospital thankfully she is ok now and near the end of the month I have used the last of my holidays for 2013/4 so have actually just done not a lot and recharged my batteries but now start to wind back up with the Iffp longlist out in a little under a week I need to review and catch up on books I may have to read for that .but last month I managed to read 11 books and reviewed 8 books also had Pushkin press fortnight which I loved the fact so many people joined in celebrating a publisher I love .I also had a great interview with Hélène Gestern q& a .Also added the Blogging meet up in June in Sheffield

    A nice selection of books there Stu – and glad to hear Amanda is better! I plan to finish the large Russian I’m reading at the moment – it will probably take me most of March to recover!

    Hi, Stu,
    I’m so glad that your lives are getting back to a point where you can fully indulge your love of reading and blogging!

    As for March, I’m reading Geraldine Brooks’s March for Caroline’s Literature and War Readalong on March 31st. If I may be so bold, I believe Brooks is a brilliant writer. I think the best of her novels that I’ve read so far has been People of the Book. Just over-the-top incredible. She is top-tier and should be watched!

    I’m also hoping to get into Wolf Hall this month and Jack London’s Call of the Wild or White Fang. I want to read him before winter is over.

    Best of books to you!
