Bookish Update: March 2014

bookish updates mar 2014

Sorry this post is a few days late! The past week has been a bit rough for me, but now that the weekend is finally here (and I’ve gotten some sleep!), I can focus on what’s really important. 🙂

Currently reading: The Quick by Lauren Owen

Books read in March:

  1. Ellis Peters, The Raven in the Foregate
  2. Elizabeth Blackwell, While Beauty Slept
  3. Kathryn Miller Haines, The Girl Is Murder
  4. Caprice Crane, With a Little Luck
  5. Lorna Goodison, By Love Possessed: Stories
  6. Hannah March, The Complaint of the Dove
  7. Kate Quinn, Mistress of Rome
  8. Frank Baker, Miss Hargreaves

Favorite: I have to go with Mistress of Rome — even though it’s a total soap opera, it was a completely addictive read!

Least favorite: With a Little Luck — it wasn’t terrible, but there was absolutely nothing original or interesting about it.

  1. Deanna Raybourn, City of Jasmine
  2. Lauren Owen, The Quick (ARC)
  3. Ismail Kadare, Broken April
  4. Kristan Higgins, Waiting on You

      I didn’t know about it either, until I randomly saw it sitting there in Barnes & Noble! Of course, I still haven’t read A Spear of Summer Grass yet, so I am WAY behind!
