more Lucy Knisley equals a happy Bethwyn


Quite a few rereads this month. I was feeling the need for some comfort, I believe, so that's just the way it happened. And I also remembered how much I adore Lucy Knisley's work, so went on to purchase one more of hers during February, as well as placing another on order.

I jumped around a fair bit this month, first reading a review book about IVF (review coming soon), and then moving onto a YA novel featuring zombies and space, to name a few things. This was a bit out of character for me, as I tend to steer clear of anything involving zombies as much as I can, but I actually didn't know about the zombies til a bit too late ^^; It was still a fantastic book, and I read it very quickly! Not sure if I will continue with that series, though :\

A few graphic novels this month, only one of which was a review book - Sweaterweather by Sara Varon (review coming soon for this one too). Step Aside, Pops was a fantastic read, and made me laugh out loud while in public, so I think I will keep trying to find more Kate Beaton wherever I can!

I finally finished the second Cedar Ridge book, and I have to say I really enjoyed this one. The main female character has some health issues and, while mine aren't even all that similar to hers, it was refreshing to read about a romance character with that sort of background. The relationship was interesting to watch and I felt drawn in to what was happening very often - I am pleased with where this series is going, needless to say!

Ah, and then we get to the Wodehouse. Yes, I finally picked up some Wodehouse, after watching this video by Words of a Reader, one of my favourite booktubers. I immediately checked to see what Wodehouse my library had on shelf at that point in time, and it happened to be Tales of St Austin's, so I decided to give it a go. And I loved it. This tiny spark of love has quickly turned to a roaring fire, and I now have a couple of Wodehouse books winging their way towards me. The humour is just the right tone for me, and has cheered me many a night, now.

Finally, I finished the month off with a little Druidry reading. Howlin's book is really more of an intro guide, so I didn't get a whole lot out of it, but it was still nice to reconnect with that side of myself.

Right now I am reading more Wodehouse, and waiting on a few books on their way to me! I am so excited to read everything that I have ordered. What are you reading at the moment?

new bookmarks from The Sticker Alley! I am already using the Snape one :D

  1. There's nothing quite as comforting as rereading a favourite!

    So happy you love Kate Beaton! She seems like such an ace person as well - so funny, but so... aware? This recent comic of hers really touched me (you may have already seen it): http://www.harkavagrant.com/index.php?id=396 plus I love her family visit comics. Gahhhh, she's so great!! And so are you!!! <3
