Good morning and happy April (and a happy belated Easter to those who celebrate it)! I missed the opportunity for a Sunday Salon post yesterday because it was actually sunny and we decided to start going walking again. This has made me very happy; after the majority of March was completely gloomy, the weather is finally going in the right direction. And it’s very nice to be outside and able to enjoy some of the British countryside again.
In March I read 14 books, a number that actually astonished me. Reading for 50 minutes to an hour extra on the train every day makes a huge difference, but I’ve also noticed that I pick shorter or kindle books to read as they’re easier to carry. In any case, I’m very pleased, not least because my TBR number has gone down for the first time in months, but I’m also wondering when I’m ever going to review all of these books!
- The Painted Bridge, Wendy Wallace
- Fair Game, Patricia Briggs
- The Ultimate Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Douglas Adams (regular readers will recall that I started this in January – so not entirely read in March)
- Strong Poison, Dorothy L. Sayers
- The Second Empress, Michelle Moran
- Chasing Magic, Stacia Kane
- Sins of a Ruthless Rogue, Anna Randol
- Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald, Therese Anne Fowler
- Cold Days, Jim Butcher
- The Devil’s Heart, Cathy Maxwell
- The Snow Child, Eowyn Ivey
- Four Sisters, All Queens, Sherry Jones
- The Family Trade, Charles Stross
- By a Thread, Jennifer Estep
Sadly, no non-fiction this month, although I am actually reading Catherine the Great by Robert K. Massie right now.
Favorite of the Month
Easy for once! Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald was completely captivating and sticks out to me as one that I’ll remember for a while.
