I was all set to link up with Anne @ Modern Mrs. Darcy and write up this month’s Twitterature Report and share with you the books I’ve been reading this month when I realized something horrifying:
I haven’t finished a single book in the last month.
What???? How is this even possible? I’ve been reading all the time, I thought. But then I remembered all the books I’ve picked up and put down – all the book I’ve set down to pick up another seemingly more important title and yes the end result is a half dozen books I never actually finished reading. So I thought I’d share with you the books I’ve been reading, but haven’t finished – because that’s better than nothing right?
It all started with…
In early 2014 I set out to read the Sherlock Holmes novels. But after finishing A Study in Scarlet I quickly lost steam and moved onto other things. Like book club picks and fluffy chick lit. And Benedict Cumberbatch.

American Gods by Neil Gaiman
My book club read this in March. I read half but lost the motivation to finish after the meeting in which I simply learned too much about the ending – my own fault. Fascinating concept but kind of a bear to actually read. My husband is enjoying it.

Emily of New Moon by Lucy Maud Montgomery
After I abandoned American Gods, I decided to treat myself to some L.M. Montgomery – I loved the Anne of Green Gables series and quickly got hooked on Emily’s story as well but I didn’t read fast enough and had to put it down before finishing so I could read the April book club pick.

The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway
My book club is reading Hemingway this month. I do not like Hemingway. This is my first time reading one of his novels but I was biased against it after reading The Paris Wife and for some reason reading this book makes me angry. Not sure if I’ll finish it though it is blessedly short.

Annnyway that is what my month of reading has looked like, more or less. A lot of classics, some good some less good, none finished. Hopefully April will be kind enough to let me finish at least one book.
