March Confessions

Ireland- March 2010
March is always a good month, because spring arrives and hopefully warm weather....or in my case, the promise of warm weather.  It was also my birthday a few days ago, which is another reason I love the month of March.  

I read a lot of books (for me!) this month and I'm hoping I keep up this trend in April.  I also hope that the weather warms up and I can finally do some reading outside on my deck.  I'm not sure Mother Nature got my memo though. 

Books Read in March:
1.  The Vespertine by Saundra Mitchell
2.  Women Know Everything by Karen Weekes
3.  The Summer We Read Gatsby by Danielle Ganek (Review to come)
4.  A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray
5.  Miles from Ordinary by Carol Lynch Williams
6.  Chime by Franny Billingsley
7.  Wither by Lauren DeStefano
8.  Where She Went by Gayle Forman
9.  The Time-Traveling Fashionista by Bianca Turetsky
10.  The Summer of Skinny Dipping by Amanda Howells (Review to come)
11.  We'll Always Have Summer by Jenny Han (Review to come)
12.  Bumped by Megan McCafferty (Review to come)

My March Top Five:

1.  Favorite Book: We'll Always Have Summer by Jenny Han- AHHHHHH! I have become even more obsessed with this series.  I am such a fangirl! It's getting embarrassing. I'm a Jenny Han addict. For real.  Keep your eye out for my review next month.  

2.  Biggest Surprise: Wither by Lauren DeStefano- I really enjoyed this book; it was a fantastic debut!

3.  Biggest Letdown: Bumped by Megan McCafferty- I am such a huge fan of McCafferty, but this book didn't work for me.  My review will be posted soon.

4.  Favorite Post:  My Bookish Pet Peeves- Creating this list was a form of therapy for me.  I enjoyed it way too much.

5.  Favorite Part of March: My birthday! I celebrated with friends and family by going to a bunch of wine tastings at the Brandywine Valley Wine Trail. What more could a girl ask for?

March Giveaways:
1.  An ARC of Miles From Ordinary by Carol Lynch Williams
2.  An ARC of Huntress by Malinda Lo
3.  Gone With a Handsomer Man by Michael Lee West


  1. You had a great month with some amazing reads. Hope April treats you well too.

  2. I love your confessions posts. I have had a terrible month for blogging in March. I feel like I'm juggling everything. I am hoping April will be better. I've missed reading your blog posts. Looking forward to reading yoyr reviews to come :-)

  3. I'm afraid to read Bumped...I read the first page and I saw tons of slang, which like I said scares me! I also loved Wither and We'll Always Have Summer!

  4. I don't like the Bumped's cover so I have no inclination to read it. I'm being a little book snob. I know.

  5. Happy Birthday a few days ago!! I started Bumped, but had to put it down for a while. I just really couldn't get in to it. I loved Wither and We'll Always Have Summer so so much!

  6. Happy belated birthday! Like you, I'm ready for spring. We currently have snow on the ground in northeast Ohio from a freak snowfall on Wednesday. As April is finally here I hope and pray I've seen the end of snow for the year (or at least till December!)

    Great job with reading and reviewing this month! You had a good month. I enjoy reading your reviews and other posts. I like participating in the Top Ten meme too. Hope you have a fantastic April!


I really appreciate your comments. Thank you!
