Reading Review: March 2019

Welcome to my Monthly Reading Review.
This post is my attempt to keep track of how I’m doing with my reading challenges and resolutions.

BOOKS I’VE READ

   

The Last By Hanna Jameson

The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon – Technically I don’t know whether this book should appear here as I haven’t finished it yet, but it’s occupied the majority of my reading time this month, so why not?

Total Library Books Read This Month: 2
Total Own Books Read This Month: 0
Overall Total Books Read This Month: 2

Total Library Books Read 2019: 8
Total Own Books Read 2019: 2
Overall Total Books Read 2019: 10

MY READ OF THE MONTH

I haven’t finished it yet because it’s such a massive book, but I have to name The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon as my Read of the Month.
I may have mentioned previously that when I collected this huge tome from the library I was amazed; I had no idea it was such a big book, and I decided that if it wasn’t really great then I’d take it back, because I didn’t want to keep carrying around such a heavy book (talk about laziness!).
And then I disappeared into this wonderfully created world of brave ladies and talking dragons and I was totally lost to reality. I begrudge having to put this book down, it’s so good.

BEAT THE BACKLIST

My total for this challenge is currently 5 books read. So far I’ve read:

The Adventure of the Christmas Pudding (Poirot #35) by Agatha Christie
The Stranger Diaries by Elly Griffiths
The Psychology of Time Travel by Kate Mascarenhas
The Girl in the Tower by Katherine Arden
Taken at the Flood (Poirot #28) by Agatha Christie

This year I’m having a go a something a little different – Beat the Backlist Bingo. I have no idea how many of these boxes I’ll manage to tick but it’s a little extra to add to my challenge.

Book with under 1000 Ratings on GoodReads – 830 for The Stranger Diaries at time of Completion.

Part of a trilogy – The Girl in the Tower by Katherine Arden

New-to-me Author – Kate Mascarenhas with The Psychology of Time Travel

Cover with your Favourite Colour – Taken at the Flood (Poirot #28) by Agatha Christie

GOODREADS

So far this year I’ve managed to read (almost) 10 books.

GOALS

  • My reading goals have definitely fallen by the wayside in the face of my massive book, but I guess I’ll consider it an achievement to read such a huge book. When anyone asks me what I’m reading and I tell them how many pages it is I’ve been confronted by several looks of horror for some reason. They don’t know what they’re missing!

So concludes March’s Reading Review. See you again next month
