Favorite Book of the Month:

Vera Wong's Unsolicited Advice for Murderers by Jesse Q. Sutanto - I thoroughly enjoyed this and still think about the characters periodically.  This was one of those books that I was sad to see the last page.

Least Favorite Book of the Month:

Withering Heights by Dorothy Cannell - I wanted to love this book but unfortunately the execution fell flat for me.  It was one of those books that I really should have DNF'd but I kept hoping it would get better.  Unfortunately, unlikable characters and a lackluster mystery kind of sank it.

Where My Reading Took Me This Month:

Domestic Travel -

In the U.S. I visited Texas, Arizona, North Carolina, and Georgia for the first time and revisited California, New York, Washington, and Maryland.

International Travel

In addition to my usual trips to England I also visited Wales, Morocco, and went on a cruise that stopped at Gibraltar.  

How was your reading in March?  Where did your books take you?


  1. I like how you tell us where you "visited" through reading. Right ow I am in Australia but many times I am in England or Ireland.

  2. It looks like you did very well. I haven't tallied all my stuff yet. I did read 10 books I own. It felt a bit slower reading than February.

    Anne - Books of My Heart

  3. That's some seriously good reading for March, I seem to have gone into brain fog and read a lot more slowly these days but still enjoying what I read.

  4. YOu had a great month of reading. I have Vera Wong's Unsolicited Advice for Murderers on my tbr.

  5. I don't even know how many books I read. Two, maybe? 😅 I was annotating Jane Eyre as I read, so it probably took three times as long to read. 😯

    You are doing fabulous. You read more books this month than I have all year! 😎

  6. What a great reading month! This is the second mention of Vera Wong I've seen today... sounds like a really good book.
