March Monthly Recap

It's been a lovely reading month. I've been enjoying it all. I think some of my top tens of the year will end up coming from this month. I don't know. I guess we'll see!

Here's what I read:

Raven Stole the Moon by Garth Stein: A mom tries to deal with the death of her son by running away to Alaska and getting wrapped up in its local legends.

The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell: The story of a space exploration mission and it's tragic end.

I Kissed a Zombie and I Liked It by Adam Selzer: Vampires are so full of themselves. Zombies are were it's at!

Unwind by Neal Shusterman: Three kids destined to be "unwound" bond together as they figure out how to escape their destiny.

My Double Life by Janette Rallison: Because Alexia looks so much like pop singer Kari, she is hired to be her double and goes of on a Hollywood adventure

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll: Alice falls down a rabbit hole and has a wild, weird adventure.

The Great Hunt by Robert Jordan: Rand and his friends search for the horn and the dagger, while he meanwhile, discovers more and more about his uniqueness.

We the Children by Andrew Clements: Ben embarks on a quest to save the school!

Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld: As WWI starts,  Alek runs for his life, while Derwyn joins the Darwinist army.

Bel Canto by Ann Patchett: (re-read):  A group of party goers, who have gathered to hear a famous opera singer, end up as hostages instead.

Favorites of the month: The Sparrow, Unwind, The Great Hunt.... and Bel Canto held up as a re-read.


  1. You had a busy month! I'll be interested to hear whether you liked Bel Canto as much on the reread. I plan to get to it again before our meeting.

  2. I liked Leviathan so much! I'm looking forward to reading Unwind. I've got it on my husband's Kindle but we can't find the charger so I don't know when I'll get to read it.

  3. Glad to see two of my favorites in your top 3 of the month. I really must read Bel Canto at some point - it's already been on my shelf for years ...
