Favorite Book of the Month: I have no idea. Most of the books I read were really good, but I don’t foresee myself purchasing any of those I don’t already own or rereading any of these any time soon. So I pass on this question.
Interesting Tidbit: I listened to two audiobooks this month. I find I usually like them, but that they take me forever to get through given my (thankfully) short commute! Also, I read exclusively fiction this month and almost all YA. I tend to go through phases in my reading and right now I am having a YA moment.
In the Works: I am working on In Too Deep right now. As for the month of March, I plan on reading Anne of Green Gables for the Book Hoarders Anonymous March read-along. I also am hoping to get to The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe and a zombie book I picked up called Rot and Ruin. I also recently grabbed Paper Towns and The Book Thief from the used book store, so I hope to get to those, too. Finally, I have at least a half dozen holds I am waiting for from the public library. I expect that a few of those books will come in to round out the month! (Looks like I’ll be busy!)
What I Learned: Apparently YA lit is much more my wheelhouse than I previously knew. I’ve been reading it almost exclusively lately. I also learned that blogging is fun, but a lot of work. I am enjoying it, though!
