March Wrap Up

02 Apr

I read a lot of books in March.  Many of them were short and/or fluffy.  Many of them were enjoyable, but not many of them were outstanding.

I had a hard time with my review writing this month, and I’m not happy with several of them.  I also have several pending that I’ve tried to write, but have not yet succeeded.  Hopefully I’ll get to those this week.

Books read:


  1. Formula for Murder (Maternal Instincts Mystery #3) by Diana Orgain (review coming)
  2. The Uncoupling by Meg Wolitzer (review coming Tuesday)
  3. Guilt by Association by Marcia Clark (review to come)
  4. Where She Went (If I Stay #2) by Gayle Forman
  5. Stiltsville: A Novel by Susanna Daniel
  6. The Orchid Affair (Pink Carnation #7) by Lauren Willig
  7. The Mistress Of Nothing by Kate Pullinger
  8. Beaglemania (Pet Rescue Mystery #1) by Linda O. Johnston
  9. Horns by Joe Hill
  10. All That’s True by Jackie Lee Miles


  1. Feed by M.T. Anderson (review coming)
  2. True Grit by Charles Portis
  3. Doctor Who: The Taking Of Chelsea 426 by David Llewellyn
  4. The Lady Most Likely…: A Novel in Three Parts by Julia Quinn, Eloisa James, Connie Brockway
  5. Savor the Moment (Bride Quartet #3) by Nora Roberts
  6. Dying for Mercy by Mary Jane Clark
  7. Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver
  8. My Fair Godmother (My Fair Godmother #1) by Janette Rallison
  9. Room by Emma Donoghue


  1. Science Fair Season: Twelve Kids, a Robot Named Scorch . . . and What It Takes to Win by Judy Dutton (review coming)

This brings my yearly total to 44 Books read: 20 paper books, 3 Nook books, 20 Audio books, and 1 all of the above.

My favorite books of the month were Science Fair Season and Where She Went.

I’ve got a lot of books I plan to read in April, and these first two days of Strep Throat have been putting a damper on those plans.  For my book clubs, I have The Unit by Ninni Holmqvist and The Finkler Question by Howard Jacobson. For blog tours, I have Heart of Deception by M.L. Malcom. Somehow I thought I had more tours, I hope I’m not forgetting anything!  I’ve got a lot of other books to read, and in particular,  I’m really looking forward to The Bird Sisters by Rebecca Rasmussen.

I’m in good shape with my reading.  I just hope I get out of my writing slump, and feel more comfortable about my writing process and writing results!

    Great month! I’ll be interested to see what you thought about The Unit. I think it will make for a great discussion.
