For those that have followed my posts, you’ll know that I was sick twice in January and February. The second time I was sick I injured my shoulder during one of my coughing fits. It was a slight muscle strain, but it’s been over a month and my shoulder injury has gotten worse. I went to see my doctor today and she says that there’s a pinched nerve along with the sore muscle. She’s given me some anti-inflammatory and pain meds. So I’ve had quite a busy day today. What helps besides these meds and a heating pad (well, actually my muscles prefer a cold compress more when it’s bad)? Well the fact that I think I finally got out of my reading slump helps.
So today I was thinking of posting some of my TBR books. But I didn’t have the time. And before I get too groggy to post this and read my books for tonight I thought I’d just list off some books that I’m working on for the month.
Please do leave comments.
I haven’t been able to get to any of the comments in the past couple days because of my shoulder, but I will very soon. So if you’ve read any of these books or have comments, please do.
➡ Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. 34% rereading. I’m rereading this with the audiobook. It’s been a fun read with it.
➡ Castle Rackrent by Maria Edgeworth. 6% read. I’m reading this book because of the holiday that’s coming up, St. Patrick’s Day. In a previous post I talked about this author and how influential this book is. So far it’s been a slow read but thankfully it seems like it will be a short one.
Un-pausing those books I’ve started but haven’t completed:
➡ First Frost (Waverley Family, #2) by Sarah Addison Allen. 11% read. I’ve read the first book, Garden Spells, last month. I really liked this. So far First Frost is a good continuation of the Waverley Family.
➡ Confessions of An Ugly Step-Sister by Gregory Maguire. 27% read. Let’s see… I read about a quarter of this book about two years ago and it’s been waiting for me to continue reading since then. What’s put me off in continuing reading this is because I saw the 2002 movie with Matthew Goode and Stockard Channing before I was interested in reading this. I loved the movie. Now it’s been a while since I’ve watched that movie so it’s now the perfect time to continue reading this. I hope.
Tonight I think I’ll be nodding off to sleep with the Jane Austen audiobook. Goodnight all.
