Photobucket

Monthly Reflections, where we take the time to reflect on the previous month.

My February Goals...

Finish 2 "Random Reads" books
Finish another book from my "2015 TBR Pile Challenge Reading List!"

Books read:
Favorite Read This Month:

Not counting my reread of Tributary, my favorite read was ON THE FENCE. A great, clean YA read.

My thoughts on February:

I completed two of my goals for February. Unfortunately I wasn't able to read two of my "Random Reads", but I'll try to get at least one read this month!

Looking ahead:

My goals for March:

Read 12 books
Finish 1 "Random Reads" book
Finish another book from my "2015 TBR Pile Challenge Reading List!"

I went off of my Priority shelf on Goodreads and my Random Reads selection for March is...  The Train Stops Here by Gail Sattler


About the book:

Hard times that began with the stock market crash of 1929 are only worsening for Elliot Endicott. With his dreams crumbling around him, Elliot has one last hope: a job on the West Coast. He'll be taking the train--but not as a paying passenger. Louise Demchuck's father works for the railroad, and one of his duties is to remove hobos from the trains. Day after day, Louise's kind heart aches with compassion for the homeless men she sees. She always prays for them and does what little she can to feed them. What will happen when a hobo named Elliott crosses the path of a railroader's daughter named Louise? Will the locomotive whistle announce love or simply another disappointment?

  1. That's a good reading month! I feel like everyone I know loves Kasie West, and I still haven't even given her a try. On the Fence sounds good so I may read that one first. Good luck on your goals for this month!
