How is everyone doing today? Today I’m bringing you my March reading wrap-up!
March was not a good reading month for me. I picked up, started, and didn’t finish a lot of books. I plan on finishing all the books I started, it’s just I wasn’t in much of a reading mood in March.
Similar to last month, this post will have a section for Stats, Books Read, Books Purchased, and a NetGalley section.
In total, I finished 3 books in March and it looks like I read 1,285 pages.
Of those 3 books, 1 was romance, 1 was mystery, and 1 was fantasy.
One of the books I finished fell into the middle grade age category and two fell into the adult category.
As far as format goes, all 3 books were physical books in March.
One of the books I read was on my backlist and two were new purchases.
You Had Me at Hola by Alexis Daria – This romance book was a lot of fun. It was cute and it makes me want to read more celebrity romance books. I liked the family aspect and I’m looking forward to reading the next book in this series.
One, Two, Buckle My Shoe by Agatha Christie – I wasn’t a huge fan of this Poirot book. There have been a handful of Poirot books that get a bit too caught up in conspiracy theories and this book is one of them. I did enjoy Poirot in general though and I like it when Inspector Japp makes an appearance.
The Girl Who Drank the Moon by Kelly Barnhill – It took me a while to get into this middle grade book, but I ended up really enjoying it. I thought the story had a lot of layers to it and it also had some wonderful characters. This book also featured a tiny dragon and a swamp monster, which instantly made the book great.
Earlier in March, I went on a book store crawl with one of my best friends. This was a dangerous adventure that resulted in a lot of Agatha Christie books being added to my shelves. I don’t remember all of the Agatha Christie books I picked up, but I will list the non-Christie books I picked up. I also picked up a handful of books from Book Outlet and Indigo this month.
- A Lot Like Adios by Alexis Daria
- A Thousand Ships by Natalie Haynes
- A Curious Beginning by Deanna Raybourn
- Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo
- Vera Wong’s Unsolicited Advice for Murders by Jesse Q Sutanto
- The London Séance Society by Sarah Penner
March trended in the wrong direction for me.
I started the month with a 50% feedback ratio and I ended with a 48% feedback ratio.
I started the month with 78 unread books and I ended the month with 82 unread books. I added Love at First Set by Jennifer Dugan, Sunshine Nails by Mai Nguyen, The Secret Book of Flora Lea by Patti Callahan Henry, and The True Love Experiment by Christina Lauren
I’m cautiously optimistic that I’ll be able to improve those numbers this month since I have lots of train reading planned today and on Saturday.
