I read pretty much anything, from fantasy (City of Stairs by Robert Jackson Bennett) to romance (Bared to You by Sylvia Day) to classics (Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad).  The only genres I don't read are self-help and comic books/graphic novels.

My March Reading

The Heat of the Moment - Katie Rose Best Man with Benefits - Samanthe Beck Dreams from My Father - Barack Obama All That Remains  - Patricia Cornwell Cruel and Unusual  - Patricia Cornwell The Body Farm  - Patricia Cornwell From Potter's Field  - Patricia Cornwell

I'm surprised I only managed seven books as I feel as if I've been powering through books the last nine days reading at every chance I get, but at the same time I'm pleased that I read that many considering the fact that it took me nearly a month to read Obama's biography and I didn't get my motivation back till the last quarter of the month.

 

In terms of quality this has been a super month - one 3, four 4s, and two 5s - it'll be a shame to call that single three star the worst book of the month since I actually liked it, but not as much as those crime thrillers from one of my favourite authors.  The books that I read this month are listed below with links to their reviews.

 

1. The Heat of the Moment (The Boys of Summer, #3) by Katie Rose, you can read my review here

 

2. Best Man with Benefits (Wedding Dare, #4) by Samanthe Beck, you can read my review here

 

3. Dreams from My Father by Barack Obama, you can read my review here

My Reading Stats for March

 

  • 7 books in 31 days, that's an average of 0.22 books per day
  • 2495 pages in 31 days, that's an average of 80.48 pages per day and 356.42 per book
  • 7 books with an average rating of 4.14 stars
  • My fastest read was Best Man with Benefits, despite not being in the mood to read I managed 149 pages in one day
  • My best is a toss up between my two five starrers, All that Remains and Cruel and Unusual, but I have to give it to Cruel and Unusual because I loved Temple Gault as a villain and this is the first book to showcase my favourite character, Lucy.
  • My worst obviously has to go to the lowest rated Best Man with Benefits, but this was a particularly good month so my lowest rated was by no means a bad book, it's actually also my fastest read for the month so while it wasn't perfect it definitely held my attention for a few steamy hours.

 

Hoping for higher quantity, but no slacking on the quality for next month.  Talk to you all later and have a great day, Sarah.
