Literary Life: March in Review

Where has March gone? So quickly it has passed.

I spent the latter half of the month at the Daunt Books Festival, and the former half looking forward to it.

I’ve somehow managed to have an alarming amount of books I’m reading at once (three) so I will be spending the beginning of this month catching up. Thank goodness for Easter Weekend.

Currently Reading:

Half of a Yellow Sun by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
The Odyssey by Homer
When You Are Engulfed in Flames by David Sedaris

Unfinished:

None!

I’ve Read:

  1. The Fire Sermon by Francesca Haig
  2. Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro
  3. Circe and the Cyclops (Little Black Classics #70) by Homer
  4. So You’ve Been Publicly Shamed by Jon Ronson
  5. Howards End by E.M. Forster
  6. How To Be a Heroine by Samantha Ellis
  7. The Music Room by William Fiennes
  8. Agnes Grey by Anne Brontë
  9. Our Spoons Came From Woolworths (re-read)

In other news:

As per usual, as Monday is a bank holiday in England, and thus a day of holiday for me, I won’t be writing a review. I will be back again this time next week.

How was your March? Do anything fun? What did you read?

March just flew by for me too! Well done for still finishing so many books. I finished a little down on previous months. Happy reading in April :-)

My March was weird! A very weird month for me, for a lot of reasons. I was glad to see it arrive, and I am simply delighted to see it go. But I did get some good reading in, and for the first time ever, I loved a Nick Hornby book, which is a very happy place to be. :)

Have fun catching up on reading! I am so far behind with reading actual books because I’ve been too busy reading fanfics! I hope I get in the mood to read actual books again soon!

And oh, wow! You read Howards End? I’ve read Maurice by Forster, but I’ve yet to try his other books. Will need to add more of his books to my to-read list!

I’ve read The Odyssey and that’s it…it means that I’ve got a couple new books to add to my never-ending list. :D My March was completely uneventful, nothing of remote interest happened beyond the fact that I’ve started reading again. Lately I seem to be going through periods where I don’t want to read, but I want to read. :/ As for what I read in March, uhm…I read: The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty Mila 2.0 by Debra Driza Cutting Teeth by Julia Fierro The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd Another Little Piece by Kate Karyus Quinn… Read more »

March was pretty good. Nothing fun, but did read at least one good book: To Kill A Mockingbird. This Saturday, I’m supposed to go see David Sedaris, but I haven’t read When You Are Engulfed in Flames. I have read a few others of his so I should be somewhat prepared.
