Sandi Shilhanek | FAREWELL FEBRUARY

February 28, 2010

Sandi ShilhanekSEEING REDAs promised in January it’s my monthly update about what I read this month. I managed ten (10) print books, and five (5) audio books. I read one new author for sure, and possibly a second, but I would have to check my reading logs from years past to be sure.

I succeeded in reading the challenge word from one of my yahoo groups which for the month of February was red. I read Seeing Red by Susan Crandall. It’s a romantic suspense one that started out making me wish I had even more time to read that day than I did. With the conclusion of Seeing Red I’m keeping my goal of reading a book a month for this group’s word challenge.

However, the same group is also doing a TBR challenge. Last month I read two titles from my tbr and was so excited! This month I got to pick new titles because you have to always have three titles to choose from. I unfortunately only read one of my TBR challenge books. I read It Happened One Night by Lisa Dale who was a new to me author. Wish I could say I was just wowed and couldn’t wait to read another book by Ms. Dale, but unfortunately I wasn’t. I have her debut release Simple Wishes on my kindle and I shall read it…in fact now that I think about it, I think I’ll use that as my March replacement title…what great incentive!

Did I have a favorite read? That’s a really tough question, and I would have to say it’s a three way tie between One of a Kind Family by Holly Jacobs, Winter Garden by Kristin Hannah, and Honeysuckle Summer by Sherryl Woods.

As for the audios…I got really lucky and enjoyed them all! How I ever survived a long commute before audio books is beyond me! If I have to pick one I’m going to pick Comfort Food by Kate Jacobs because the narrator does a great job in changing voices and some of the characters have accents, so I’m sure that couldn’t have been easy!

Your turn! How was your February? Did you complete a goal you had set for yourself? Did you read a great new author? Perhaps a fantastic new story by an old favorite? Help me add to my TBR!

Until next week happy page turning.
