Monthly Wrap-Up March 2014

March was a bit slow for this reader. (I blame vacation.) I only read 8 books, and one of those was basically a comic for pity’s sake. What I lacked in quantity I surely made up for in quality as this was a great month in reading.

Lost Lake by Sarah Allen Addison

The Moon Sisters by Therese Walsh

Above by Isla Morely

Frog Music by Emma Donoghue

The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin

Justice League Vol. 1 Origin by Geoff Johns

The Frangapani Hotel by Violet Kupersmith

Below Stairs by Margaret Powell

The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry was easily my favorite fiction of the month. Read it! Even thoughย Below Stairs wins favorite nonfiction by default (it was my only one!) I want to point out that it was absolutely delightful.

How was March for you? Do you have a favorite book of the month? I’d love to hear about it below!

  1. I definitely want to read AJ Fikry after all the great things I've heard, maybe a book about loving books will be just the spark I ned!

  2. I'm so close to finishing A.J. Fikry (under 30 pages)! It's probably one of the best books I've read this year. I also read The Frangipani Hotel and it was okay. I really want to read Frog Music, but not sure if it will happen any time soon. I haven't read anything by Emma Donoghue. She actually lives not far from my in-laws.

  3. I can see Fikry being in my tippy top faves of the year. It's fantastic! I really liked Frangipani…thought it was so spooky and lovely ๐Ÿ˜€ If you want to read one of Donoghue's books I'd read Room. It's different from anything I've read before or since.

  4. I'm about halfway through Fikry and it's the perfect book for book lovers and book bloggers. I've flagged so many gems of passages so far. I have The Moon Sisters on my floor right now but think I need to get back to East of Eden first. Happy April missy!

  5. Stuck in an airport for very many hours, I read Coetzee's 'Summertime' in its entirety. I enjoyed the irony, but ended up feeling very sad for him. He wasn't laughing as he wrote it, I'm sure. Some memorable lines, but I wasn't riveted and caught up in the read as I was for 'Disgraced.' However, the 'voice' of the Brazilian was amusingly evocative.

  6. Fikry is nearly perfect ๐Ÿ˜€ I think it was written with bloggers in mind…that's what I'm telling myself anyway, lol. I'd like to re-read and mark up my copy like I should have done the first time! Happy April to you as well, have a great one!

  7. So glad I stopped by and found out about A.J. Fikry! I think eight books in one month is pretty productive. If I can read 6-8 books in a month I feel pretty happy. I had a lot of deadlines and tons of grading in March. I kept reading, but things were pretty quiet on the blog.
