Last week I asked all of you which play by Shakespeare I should read this summer. And the winner is Macbeth. I’m really excited to read this one since so many of you said that you loved it. Thanks for all of the votes! I am hoping to catch some productions of Shakespeare’s plays this summer in London. If any of you know of some please let me know. It would be cool to read Macbeth and then to be able to attend a live performance.
I had several reading goals last month. I read Mistborn: The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson for a group read hosted by Carl. We have two more discussions left for this book. In addition I read Coventry by Helen Humphreys for a readalong hosted by Caroline. I am almost done with Eldest by Christopher Paolini. The one book that I totally failed with last month was the one by J. M. Coetzee. I started Dusklands but had a hard time getting into it. I will add it to my reading goals for May since this book is on my 1001 list and I can’t skip it. All in all I am quite happy with my reading in April. When I set my goals I thought it would be a relaxing month, but my calendar filled up quickly. This may sound like an excuse and it is. But I read for pleasure so I don’t get down on myself if I don’t reach all of my goals. Life is stressful so I see no reason to add more stress. Also I like to set goals since I know I will work towards them. I may not succeed 100% but I do make progress. And progress is better than not accomplishing anything at all.
For this month, I hope to read three novels. I will do my best to get into Dusklands. Also I have signed up for another group read hosted by Carl. We will be reading Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman. If you would like to sign up please visit his blog. Also, I hope to read David Copperfield by Charles Dickens. I didn’t read any Dickens last month and I really missed him. Time to get back on my project of reading ten of his novels this year. This one will be my fourth novel.
What are your goals for May?
