Here's the books I read this month, the last one being mere minutes ago!

The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls: The author tells a tale of childhood neglect that will make you rejoice in her eventual escape.
Beyonders: A World Without Heroes by Brandon Mull: Jason and Rachel are sucked into the world of Lyrian where they work together to overthrow the evil Emperor.

My Jane Austen Summer by Cindy Jones: Lily escapes the sadness of her life by going to England to participate in a Jane Austen literary festival and hopefully fulfill her dreams of living in a novel.
Favorites of the month: Room for sure, followed by The Glass Castle... and my re-read of I Am the Messenger. They were all good though!
Plans for April:
- Finish Lord of Chaos, ASAP, because I'm having YA cravings that I need to address
- Read Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie for book club
- City of Bones! Once and for all!
- Read The Pun Also Rises for a TLC book tour late in the month
- Finish up the Chaos Walking trilogy with Monsters of Men
- See what all the fuss is about The Name of the Wind
- Figure out something small, quick and easy to read during the readathon
Here's to a new month of reading! What are your plans?
