When I realised it was the last day in March, and I thought I had 49 books on my ‘read’ list, I was really tempted to just drop everything and keep reading until I finished the one I was on. But actually, I had miscounted, and the book I was reading was only the 49th book. So I didn’t finish it in March, but if I had, and had then realised I was after miscounting, I would have been grossly disappointed, so it was just as well, really.
I already did a January/February roundup, so I really only need to talk about the books that I read in the last month here. And of course, if I’ve already reviewed them (as is the case with one), there’s not much more to say about that, is there?
So that’s quite a range of genres – some fantasy, some dystopia, some historical fiction, and some ‘women’s fiction’ (which I hate as a genre title. I would really prefer something like… lifestyle fiction, or similar.)
I finished one series (Stars Above, from the Lunar Chronicles) and was really sad to see it go, as well as reading an entire trilogy (Graceling Realm/The Seven Kingdoms) on which I’ll have a blogpost coming soon, and started a new series (Shatter Me/Destroy Me) which is the greatest example of purple prose I’ve ever read!
The top four books in the mosaic were all standalones – I’ve already reviewed Follow Me Back, and will have my thoughts on Brooklyn up before too long. I also watched the film of Brooklyn, so I’ll have a chat about that, too.
I’ve also blu-tacked two Reading Challenges to my wall – although I haven’t done a very good job of keeping them updated or ticked off. That’s on my to-do list as well!
Anyways – in terms of how I read in March, I was pretty happy. I posted a few blog posts as well, so I’m happy to be keeping this little blog going!
