The High’s & Low’s!

Obviously I had a lot 4 star reads.  They were all good, I enjoyed them.  My highlights in March were Mercy Thompson, but that’s obvious.  I think the biggest shocker was my obsession with The Foxhole Court.  More than my obsession, I think I’m so hung up on it because I can’t believe I love it as much as I do.  It’s so flawed, but those characters just burrowed inside me and I can’t let go.  Even now I find that I can’t stop thinking about them.  I know this will be a reread series.

On the opposing side, I can’t way I was super disappointed about anything.  I suppose the book I disliked the most was 72 Hours.  I think they story had so much promise, but the writing and characters couldn’t take it all the way.  I think, in a few months, I won’t remember I even read it.

Favorites Around the Blogosphere

In all my blogging travels, there were a few blog posts that I loved and want to share.  First, Deanna at A Novel Glimpse gave us Ed Sheeran songs that should be romance novels, and I didn’t disagree.  I think Mr. Sheeran writes the most romantic songs on the radio.  I’d read these books.

Nerd in New York talks Diversity in reading, which is a topic that is important to a lot of us.  I particularly liked the breakdown of this post, and the statistics.  It was very well done.

How about, are you a book addict?  Whether you are, or your not sure, you should read this article by Mind of a Book Dragon.  Make sure you click her link to the first article in February.

I’ve not read Carve the Mark, but I did read the Divergent series.  While I’ve never considered myself a fan of Veronica Roth, I have found myself intrigued by how her new book was received.  If you haven’t heard, or it interests you too, read Bookmark Chronicles author review of Veronica Roth.

Finally, I stumbled on this article at The Book Corps, all about Adults reading YA, and why there is nothing wrong with it!  Obviously there’s a stigma against an adult reading YA.  I think most of us have heard it, or dealt with it.  I know it’s a peeve of mine, and if it’s one of yours, pop in and read her article.  It’s another well written post.

I have a feeling I’m going to love April.

What is your list for April?  Do we share any picks?

About Birdie

Don’t look for her in any bar, club, crazy raging party, or anywhere there may be a large gathering of strangers. She’s more likely to be found tucked into the corner of the couch watching one of her favorite shows, or preferably under a comforter with her current novel.
