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.

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.
