Favorite Book of the Month:

The Girl Who Chased the Moon by Sarah Addison Allen - I forgot just how much I enjoy this author's books and was so glad I picked up this one.  Listening to this one was just a delight.

Least Favorite Book of the Month:

I had my first DNF this month - A Paris Apartment by Michelle Gable.  I may end up picking it back up because I did find it readable but I really disliked the characters so I doubt it.

But my least favorite book that I finished this month was The Bettencourt Affair by Tom Sancton.  I don't know if the events in the book were just to recent so it just felt like he said/she said gossip or it really was just he said/she said gossip.  I think it would have made a great article but if I hadn't been listening to the audio I wouldn't have made it through this one.

How was your reading in March?


  1. Congrats on reading 20 books! I wish I could read that many. My TBR would be a lot more reasonable.

  2. Great reading/listening month. I can't stand an audio that is constantly a barrage of he said/she said. That is a clear indication it won't work for me.

  3. Fantastic job with reading! Happy April!

  4. You did well on reading goals!! I'm impressed.

  5. Great job! I had a good reading month too.

  6. You did some good reading in March! Too bad about The Bettencourt Affair. I know it's an interesting story(my daughter worked for L'Oréal in NYC after college) but maybe not worth a whole book...

  7. What a great month of reading! 20 books is amazing!

  8. 20 books is pretty awesome!

  9. I didn't like one of Michelle Gable's books and now she is off my list! I enjoyed the Sarah Addison Allen book but it sounds like audio was great. Great audio listening.

  10. Looks like you had a great month!

  11. I've been trying to cut back to one book a week and make myself do other things. It's kind of working... I only read six this month. 😁

  12. You had a great reading month! I hope April is good too.

  13. You had a fabulous reading month! 20 books is amazing! I do need to read more of Sarah Addison Allen soon.

  14. It sounds like you had a good reading month, despite the books you struggled with. I hope you have a great April!
