March 2013 Book Round Up

3 Apr

Well thats another month gone, another very cold month and hopefully the cold weather will start to go away now. The last couple of days the weather has been very sunny so hopefully it will continue to warm up a bit. My reading this month has been about average i managed 6 books but i have wanted to read more this month so that can only be a good thing. According to Goodreads i have read 17/80 books so far this year which is 3 books or 4% behind schedual. Never mind I have plenty of time to catch up yet.

Books Read

12)Life of Pi – Yann Martel (2010 book, paperback book) I did really enjoy this book especially the twist at the end. I didnt really see that one coming and it did leave me thinking.

13) Dangerous Liaisons – Pierre Choderlos de Laclos (2013 book, e-book) I really did not enjoy this book i struggled to understand what was going on in this book.

14)Fifty Shades Freed – E. L. James (2012 book, ibook) I really liked this book even though i thought i wouldnt and it was a good end to the series.

15)Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix – J. K. Rowling (re-read, Hardback book) This is my 2nd favourite book in the series and i really loved it. I love revisiting this magical world.

16)Ground Truth – Patrick Bishop (2013 book, paperback) This book was a present for me this year and i have to say i did enjoy it even though it did go into the horrible aspect of the war in Afghanistan.

17)What is it About Yorkies? – Dr Harry Jay (2012 book, e-book) This was a very short read however i did enjoy it.

Books carried over

I am currently reading Wolf Hall by Hillary Mantel. This book was picked for the April reading circle and while i am enjoying it its a little confusing with all the characters. Still i think i’ll end up liking this book.

I am also re-reading Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince and although I’m only a couple of pages into it i am already enjoying it.

    Whoa, why the sudden splurge of Ian Fleming? 😛

    Haha, it’s so awesome when you can tick off a book from one of your challenges, even if it is the same book for multiple challenges, it really makes you feel like you’ve achieved something!

      🙂 I mentioned to my boyfriend that i would like to read the James Bond books one day and he brought me all the original ones that Ian Fleming wrote!

      I’m loving the fact that I’m reading more books for reading challenges this year too 🙂
