February was a happy, happy month for me! Lots of good news, we finished renovating our kitchen and one of our chickens finally laid her first egg, yay!
That’s Chyna – she’s an Araucana and her eggs are green. They can also be lavender or blue I read. Since she started laying in the beginning of the month she’s given us one egg every 2nd day. Until she started laying every day 4 days ago. And one of those was a massive egg 😀 We have 2 more Rhode Island Reds but they haven’t started laying yet.
I finished 3 books this month, just like in January. This time I liked them a lot more although none of them is a highlight for me. Still waiting on the first really awesome book this year.
What I read
Dune by Frank Herbert –> finished! I spent a lot of time talking about it and although it wasn’t such a big hit for me, some parts still impressed me. Still considering reading the second book, especially since it’s rather short. Can someone tell me, if there are more sandworms? 😀
Slash by Slash & Anthony Bozza –> finished! Sometimes I pick up one of my Boyfriend’s books. He mostly reads biographies and we just went to a Guns n Roses concert, that was much, much better than expected. Axl wasn’t as out of shape as I feared and Slash was GREAT! His lifestyle isn’t, though.. or wasn’t^^ Definitely interesting to read if you’re a fan.
The Singer of All Songs by Kate Constable –> finished! I didn’t even plan to read this but somehow, after the biography, I felt like some simple ‘magical girl’-Fantasy. The book was exactly what I expected it to be. Light and easy with likeable characters and a straight-forward quest. Lots of magic, lots of travelling, lots of clichees, a slowly developing romance and an ending, that was a bit of a let down. I will probably check out the other 2 books of the trilogy as well.
The City of Mirrors by Justin Cronin –> page 411. Oh man, this is too dramatic for me at the moment. And this one character I hated since book 1 turned up again, ugh. I will pick it up again later though. I really want to finish the whole trilogy and move on.
Books I want to read in March
Misery by Stephen King –> I know, that was on my Feb list already 😀
Arcanum Unbounded by Brandon Sanderson –> I miss Sanderson
A Cavern of Black Ice by J.V. Jones –> I decided to re-read this on our Western Australia-holiday in a few weeks.
