Can I just say that March has been such a weird time? The coronavirus has affected almost everyone at this point. I’ve been telecommuting for over two weeks now. To say there aren’t perks of working from home would be a lie. I like being able to just roll out of bed and still wear by pajamas while checking my work e-mails. I’m pretty sure my dog Ollie is both happy and confused as to why I’m saying home every day, lol. But telecommuting also has its challenges. For me, that’s mainly the motivation to actually do work. But that’s another story. 😛
Anyway! March is finally behind us. Did it seem to last a really long time to you or was that just me? 😜 One of the funnest things I’ve done this month is attend the North Texas Teen Book festival, which is where a large portion of this month’s book haul comes from.
So…let’s get to it!
As usual the wrap-up is first:
Would Like to Meet by Rachel Winters – ★★ 1/2
Want by Cindy Pon (audiobook) – ★★
All-American Muslim Girl by Nadine Jolie Courtney – ★★★★★
The Lucky Ones by Liz Lawson (ARC) – ★★★ 1/2
Little White Lies by Jennifer Lynn Barnes (audiobook) – ★★★★
All Your Twisted Secrets by Diana Urban (ARC) – ★★
My Plain Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, & Jodi Meadows (audiobook) – ★★★ 1/2
Crave by Tracy Wolff (ARC) – ★ 1/2
The Perfect Escape by Suzanne Park (eARC) – ★★★
When I look back at March’s reading I remember All-American Muslim Girl so vividly. My goal was to write a review for it, but I never got around to it. Needless to say, I simply adored the book. It was cute, a little cheesy, and has such an important message that I think is relevant to everyone, regardless of religion.
The biggest disappointments this month were definitely Crave and Want.
My review of The Perfect Escape will post on Thursday if you’re interested!
Now for the book haul…
It was a fun month of releases and books in general. I definitely think this telecommuting helped me read a total of 9 books this month. I don’t know what next month will look like in terms of a wrap-up, but the book haul should be smaller… I hope. 😅
Let me know how your reading month went in the comments. Feel free to link to your wrap-up and book haul as well! 🙂
