March Reading Recap

I had a very fun month of reading! Here's the list:

Elantris by Brandon Sanderson: When the prince is struck down with the curse, he is thrown into the decaying city of Elantris and forced to figure out how to survive.

Pillage by Obert Skye: When Beck's mom dies, he is sent to live with his uncle, and there, he discovers some pretty cool things!

The Absolutely True Diary of a Part Time Indian by Sherman Alexie: Junior decides to go off the reservation to go to school. There's lots of good things and bad things that happen because of this.

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Burrows: A collection of letters in which a writer makes friends with a bunch of people on the island of Guernsey and how they lived through the German occupation.

Chains by Laurie Halse Anderson: A slave girl gets sold to a Patriot family in New York City just as the Revolutionary War breaks out.

Twisted by Laurie Halse Anderson: How a teenage boy copes with, and overcomes, depression.

Marked by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast: Zoey gets marked as a vampire and has to now go to the House of Night boarding school as she begins the transformation into being a grown vampire.

Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac by Gabrielle Zevin: Naomi falls, bumps her head, and now can't remember anything after 7th grade. How does she re-create her life?

The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan: The first in the saga of Percy Jackson's adventures wherein he discovers who his dad really is and rescues the missing lightning bolt!

My favorites of the month? It's a toss up between Elantris, The Guernsey book, and Chains. All were wonderful!

What was your favorite book this month?


  1. A good reading month! I read so little in March that I am just going to wait and recap March and April together.

  2. I like how you include a line about each of the titles ... I might have to do that myself next month.

    I posted my recap today as well, and my favorite was PEOPLE OF THE BOOK.

  3. You read a lot of good books! Hopefully April is just as full of good reads!

  4. Looks like you had a great month! Hope you have a lot of reading time in April.
