I didn’t recap February because I only read two books. 😦 But March was better!
As a reminder, here are some of my reading goals:
- 150 books total.
- 50,000 pages.
- 40 non-fiction.
- 10 classics.
- 10 books translated into English (excluding those on my “classics” list).
- 15 books outside my comfort zone.
- 22 books off my TBR list.
This month, I read:
- 10 books
- 3211 pages (& 17 hours of audiobook)
- 1 non-fiction book
- 3 books by male authors
- 1 book out of my comfort zone
- 1 book from my TBR list
This was actually a really good month for reading! I haven’t quite figured out how I’m going to count audiobook hours in comparison to pages, but I am still on track with page count, even minus the listening hours. I made more progress on my diversity goals than the last two months, but it’s still pretty standard…
- Ice Like Fire, by Sara Raasch. 2nd book in a trilogy. It was, surprisingly, maybe better than the first book.
- Robot Dreams, by Isaac Asimov. I’ve read a lot of Asimov novels and collections, but it has been a few years. I enjoyed this reminder of his brilliance.
- Lois Lane: Fallout, by Gwenda Bond. I met Gwenda at a book fair and immediately wanted to read her YA novel about Lois Lane. It was good. [And book 2, Double Down, is coming out May 1!]
- Summerlost, by Ally Condie. This MG novel just came out and is wonderful, beautiful, thought-provoking, and haunting. See my review.
- The Rose Daughter, by Robin McKinley. I really, really like Beauty and the Beast stories and I really like McKinley’s writing, so I loved this book. 2 thumbs up!
I also enjoyed The Riddle (Alison Croggon) and House of Hades (Rick Riordan).
