March in books

Good morning!

IT’S WRAP UP TIME!

March has been and gone (I was meant to post this last Friday, but honestly, I was just too tired and too interested in reading to turn my laptop on!). I was surprised by how many books I read in March – I didn’t think I’d done as well as I had! I mean, that’s probably down to graphic novels… but they’re still reading!!

IN MARCH, I READ 16 BOOKS

I am really pleased with how my reading is coming on and now that it’s Easter holidays, I’m racing on with that total!

ANYWAY… WHAT DID I READ IN MARCH?

Let’s start with graphic novels

My kids and I are still ADORING graphic novels, and since I managed to get most of these from Abe Books (my holy grail of second hand graphic novel buying), I raced through them and took them into school and we’re loving them!

Now some middle grade…

I was incredibly lucky with the MG I read during March – finishing off some series, starting new series and reading books by some of my favourite authors. I really got a wonderful mix of historical, contemporary and funny last month.

The solitary YA book I read…

53115328. sy475

My full review was posted on Wednesday for this… but for those who didn’t see that. This is the final book in the series and MY GIDDY GOSH-O. This was everything I didn’t know I needed with everything I wanted. Bex Hogan is a witch pirate and we should be eternally grateful that she graced our lives with this world!

I had such an incredible reading month and I feel incredibly lucky to have been sent lots of these books by publishers – so a massive massive thank you! It still blows my mind that people want to send me their books. All of the kids books will be making their way into school to be enjoyed and loved by my kids (either in my class library or the school library!).

SO BOOK CHALLENGES YOU SAY?

I’m still being EXTRA EXTRA tracking my reading on Goodreads and StoryGraph (I have thoughts about both… but I’m sticking with it for now!), Like I said, I’ve changed my goal to 104… so let’s see how that goes!

2021 BOOKS READ: 52/104

And that’s about it for this month!

    I read a LOT. My favorite book of those I read in March was probably Stephen King’s new one entitled “Later”. It’s one of his pulp fiction attempts and it was excellent! Not so much gore nor horror nor weird science fiction in it, but more just a good story if you like those kind of books (pulp fiction that is…like the old Ellery Queen’s or Earl Stanley Gardner). My reading aims for 2021 are fairly like last year and the one before that…If I find something I’d like to read, I’ll dive in, but no pressure. I’ve re-read a bunch of stuff too this year.
