March in Review

I read 7 books last month and reviewed not a single one of them. This is pretty unusual for me, as I normally don’t like to go more than a week after finishing a book before I review it (less than that is even more preferred).

I know the main reason that I didn’t write any is because I just didn’t feel like it. When I’ve had free time in the last couple of months, I’d rather play games or watch a show. The amount of reading I did was pretty low too. It took me a while to realize and then accept that it’s okay that my mom’s death at the beginning of February has been affecting me in subtle ways, including just not caring about being productive lately. It involves much more than my reading and book reviewing. I feel like I’m just starting to kind of come out of that fog, which is good, but I’m already struggling to remember details about the earlier books from the month. I suppose I’ll need to do some skimming to remember enough to write the reviews. And the further behind I get, the more I don’t want to do it. My reviews will probably be abbreviated for a while.

Here are the books I read in March:

Death Masks by Jim Butcher
One False Note by Gordon Korman
By the Shores of Silver Lake by Laura Ingalls Wilder
Beezus and Ramona by Beverly Cleary
The Cat Who Came to Breakfast by Lilian Jackson Braun
Where the Red Fern Grows by Wilson Rawls
The Inimitable Jeeves by P.G. Wodehouse

This list includes 1 re-read. My favorite book from March was One False Note. I started 2 series, continued 4 series, and finished 0 series. My ever-changing short list of to-be-reads, as well as a flag for the book I’m currently reading and an ongoing list of those I’ve read and posted about can be found here.

I’m also keeping my Goodreads page updated with a more extensive list of to-be-reads. Despite my almost too-long TBR list, I’m always looking for more to add. Feel free to offer suggestions of your favorites or just recent reads you enjoyed.
