Goodreads Challenge:
22/100 books read

Book Riot Read Harder Challenge:
To my list of challenges met I am adding…

  • Read a biography: Spectacle: The Astonishing Life of Ota Benga by Pamela Newkirk
  • Read a book over 500 pages: A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara (815 pages)

As promised, February was a much slower reading month than January. I did not participate in any readathons and I am deep into my last semester of graduate school, so much of my reading time has been taken by required reading. I did read 6 books this month, including A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara which clocked in at over 800 pages. March includes a road trip to Florida and back, and I am almost done with my thesis (YAY!), so hopefully my next wrap up will be longer.

Don’t forget you can read detailed reviews of all the books I read at goodreads.com/emurch, and if you have any thoughts about any of the books I’ve read this month tweet me @EMurch. Until next time, happy reading!

–Erin
