Eleanor and Park | Rainbow Rowell
post image

I'm running behind (but what else is new??), but here's my March wrap up. Not great. I started a couple others, and I'm still working on them. THUG is really good so far, it's just hard to consume too much at one time with issues being so prevalent these days... I started Illuminae on audio via #Libby but returned it after less than an hour bc it was too many narrators and jumping between time for me to keep up while at work. #MagicalMarch #WrapUp

CoffeeNBooks I loved Eleanor & Park! It was the first Rainbow Rowell novel I read, and now I'm hooked on her books! 4y
vkois88 It's not my first, but I'm definitely hooked on her books!! There's a certain underlying vulnerability to each of her characters that draws me in to just about every one. 4y

These are my #MarchStats #WrapUp. A great month with great reads! And I'm happy about my male/female author ratio 💪🏼
#BestReadofMarch you ask? It has to be either The Bluest Eye or Asking for It - both very powerful books!
Thanks ladies for hosting these great photo challenges - I had tons of fun!


Kalalalatja Great month! Glad you liked Asking for it 👏 4y

kspenmoll @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @britt_brooke @emilyhaldi @MrBook @vkois88 Thanks all! Some really good reads...but also on reflecting on how my mysteries I read, think I needed to escape real life a bit this month! They are my go to when I want to bury my head or am overwhelmed. ❤️📚 4y

I had a pretty good month. I also realized that unintentionally all but 2 of my books this month had #LGBTQ themes 🙌🌈 It was so hard to pick a #BestReadOfMarch since I read across so many genres this month. But you really can‘t go wrong with Marlon Bundo. So great. #ReadingResolutions #MarchStats #MagicalMarch #WrapUp #MarchInBooks

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Well done!!! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 4y

#MagicalMarch #Wrapup #ReadingResolutions #MarchStats 6 books this month vs 4 last month & I'm on track for my Goodreads goal. I didn't make progress on any of the other reading challenges I'm doing this year because I've been binging on the Dune series, one of my all-time fave series. Once I'm done with my #epicreread, I'll get back to the challenges. #BestReadofMarch is a tie between Dune Messiah & Children of Dune. #MarchinBooks

AmandaL I read the Dune series years ago and I remember devouring it. 👍 4y
Andrew65 Well done! 👏 4y
TK-421 @AmandaL Every time I've read it I've devoured it too! 4y

I loved every single one of my March reads.

Five books this month is not as many as last month but better than an average month for me #MarchStats #Readingresolutions @Jess7
#WrapUp #MagicalMarch @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @vkois88

And even though I loved them all, I highly recommend All the Ugly and Wonderful Things #BestreadofMarch #MarchInBooks @maich
