I’m running a little behind on putting this up, but here’s a rundown of what I was up to reading- and blogging-wise in March.
Books Read (with links to my reviews):
Candor by Pam Bachorz
In Too Deep by Amanda Grace
Rot & Ruin by Jonathan Maberry
Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare
Partials by Dan Wells
Anne of Green Gables by L.M Montgomery
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
Interesting Tidbit: I wrote a series of posts about the dystopia genre in the lead up to the Hunger Games movie– why I think it’s so popular, how awesome it is to see strong female heroes, and what messages authors convey through their portrayal of violence. I really enjoyed writing these analyses and getting to discuss them with my readers. Hopefully I’ll be able to put these sorts of posts out on a regular basis!
In the Works: I am reading After the Snow and listening to Unwind right now. As for the rest of April, I plan on reading A Wrinkle in Time for the Book Hoarders Anonymous read-along. I am also being inundated with library holds, so I have The Way We Fall and Starters waiting for me. At some point I will actually get to the pile of books I’ve bought recently. I am trying to keep my fingers off the library’s “hold this” button.
What I Learned: I really like blogging and am not half-bad at this whole thing! Still much more to learn, though!

I just finished Starters last night! I’m hoping to be able to review it for this coming week. I really like it, lots of twists. ~Maggie
Good to hear! I’ve seen mixed opinions, so I am looking forward to seeing what I think myself!
