A Man for All Seasons was good. I read it quickly and was nostalgic for my obsession with the Tudors. I had no time to indulge or even start my next book, however, because life and work became ridiculously overwhelming. Today was the first day of winter break, and I finally had time to slow down.
On to shelf #7
I had a lot of options on this shelf, and I was drawn to March by Geraldine Brooks. I probably should have done a little more research on it before starting, because it’s a retelling of Little Women from Mr. March’s perspective, and I have not read Little Women. Oops! I know the story well enough, so it hasn’t been a problem. I’ll write more once I finish it.
I’m lucky I picked March because I’m planning next year’s reading challenges, and many of the books I haven’t read on this shelf fit various categories.
Books I’ve read:
- Firekeeper’s Daughter by Angeline Boulley
- Witness by Jamal Brinkley
