Reading Recap March 2024

 I didn't read much this month, but I here's what I DID read!

Beartown by Fredrik Backman: A story about a town and a hockey team, and how that town LIVES for the hockey team, and how that all falls apart one day. Told from many points of view from many different townspeople, and how they all deal with the situation in their own many and different ways. Another great book by another great author! ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Flippin' Skaters by Teresa Richards: I was hoping for a cute sort of YA story, but it wasn't as cute as expected. Something happened, and our girl doesn't even know what, but suddenly she is getting cyber bullied, and she has to figure out how to deal with that, and to also figure out what actually happened. As the title suggests, she ends up skating as her distraction to real life. ⭐⭐⭐

Fairy Tale by Stephen King: What a fun readalong book this was! Crazy that it's over already! This is the story of our boy Charlie who discovers something in the shed of his neighbor. It takes half the book to lead up to us finally finding out what's in there, but the build up to that was lovely. This book definitely lives up to its fairy tale title with many nods to fairy tales, and a general fairy tale vibe. It was a very enjoyable reading experience. ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Plans for April:

  • I'm deep into The Dark Forest and will hopefully have that done this weekend!
  • I'll be reading Carrie Soto Is Back for book club.
  • I've started a YA called An Improbable Season by Rosalyn Eves.
  • I'm hoping to participate in Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon this coming Saturday...for the first time in years! Hopefully I'll some light fun easy books in my stack for that.
  • Maybe I'll keep working on my Count of Monte Cristo re-read.
