March reading wrap up

Okay, how is it April already? I AM NOT ON BOARD WITH HOW FAST THIS YEAR IS GOING SOMEONE MAKE IT STOP. But I digress. It's time to wrap up my March reading!

Books read: 35. What the hell?! I need a life. Someone find me a life immediately, because this is getting ridiculous.
New vs rereads: 17 new books vs 18 rereads. And considering I had a ton of new library books to get through, that's kind of surprising!
Most read genre: Continuing the trend, contemporary took out first place with 7 books. Fantasy and crime were in joint second with 5 books each.

Favourite book: I read a lot of fairly average books this month. The only one I rated above 4 stars was Perfect Fifths by Megan McCafferty, so I guess that was my favourite by default! (It was pretty damned perfect)
Least favourite book: Food for the Dead by Michael E. Bell. He's a folklorist, so from that perspective the writing made sense. But as a history book? It was kind of all over the place.
Favourite cover: I don't know what it is about it, but I really love the cover for The Shattering even though it's pretty standard.

Diverse Books Project: I'm a couple of weeks ahead of schedule at the moment, which is good because I've got an ARC that I desperately need to get to before I start on any more diverse books. Also, I need you guys to tell me which thumbnail you prefer - the ones with my face or the ones with just the book cover. I NEED TO KNOOOOOOOOOOOOW.











In March, I ended up reading 2 graphic novels, 4 non-fiction books, and 29 novels. There are links to all my Goodreads reviews below!

Three months in, and I STILL haven't rated anything less than 2 stars. I guess this means I'm getting better at picking books?? Then again, I've only given 5 star ratings to three books this year, and one of those was a reread. So I'm clearly not getting better at picking OMG AMAZING books. Sigh.

What did you read in March?

  1. I don't have a preference when it comes to your thumbnails. I like seeing your face in them but I also don't mind the ones with just the book. *sigh*

  2. I've given a LOT less 5-star ratings this year too. IT'S WEIRD. Last year I ended up with like 20+ "absolute favourites" and this year only 3 books have gotten on that shelf. I'm getting fussy. >.> Ohh 35?! YOU ARE AMAZING. I did 34, so I'm only just behind you. lol Although this month I've been slack. And all the books I have left to read are like 400+ pages so it's taking me a while to get through them. xD
