March Wrap-Up

 

March wasn’t as a great a month as I thought it would be -- too much overtime, too little sleep. I read nine books in March and here's the breakdown:

 

5 Stars: 1

Sherlock: Chronicles by Steve Tribe

 

4 Stars: 2

The Killings at Badger's Drift by Caroline Graham

Death in the Tunnel by Miles Burton

 

3 Stars: 4

Death of a Hollow Man by Caroline Graham

The Dragon Throne by Chrys Cymri

Relativity by James Swallow

Superman: Secret Identity by Kurt Busiek, Stuart Immonen

 

2 Stars: 1

The Force Awakens by Alan Dean Foster

 

1 Star: 1

The Apple Tart of Hope by Sarah Moore Fitzgerald - I'm still kind of angry about this one.

 

Reviews: 9

 

DNF: 1.5

Planet X - This is already in a pile ready to be donated or passed off to my nieces if they want it.

The Indomitable Ten - I plan on giving this book one more chance before writing it off. I might start on the short stories in the back and work my way forward.

 

I didn’t get to Lord of Chaos in The Wheel of Time series. I had planned on reading it toward the end of the month, but I made the mistake of picking up The Indomitable Ten first and it kind of killed my desire to read anything too intense or long, ditto for Infinite Jest. I did not complete the second volume of The Annotated Sherlock Holmes -- I have a little more than 200 pages left to go. I’ve also been slowly duplicating my library and reviews on Leafmarks based on the recommendations from both Murder by Death and Bookstooge’s Reviews on Board. Thanks guys!

 

 

April Reading List

 

My reading list for April isn’t too set in stone. I'm in the mood for Mystery right now, so most of my TBR is made up of that genre. Of course based on previous experiences, I'll plow through 5 or 6 books and then decide I need some Fantasy or Sci-Fi. Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon is April 23rd (two days before my birthday) and I have a tentative list, but that might change once again, depending on whether or not I burn out on Mystery earlier in the month.
