March 2021 Reads!

I told you about my super special awesome bookclub on Facebook (The Book Democracy Book Club) where we are given a bingo card and random reading prompts. You read the book and a mod gives it a look over before checking off your box. It gives me something to look forward to every month, and helps me prioritize my massive TBR (To Be Read) pile.

One book gets to pull double duty and count for its prompt AND the free space. I read a few more books than usual this month. We went into Covid_19 lockdown on my birthday in March of last year, and I think I was having some emotional ups and downs with the anniversary. Reading freed my mind from that.

March’s reads were:

Black Sun by Rebecca Roanhorse (Female Author)

Inspection by Josh Malerman (Published in March)

Neverworld Wake by Marisha Pessl (Mystery)

Nothing to See Here by Kevin Wilson (Free Space)

The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood (Dystopian AND Adapted Book)

Murder at an Irish Christmas by Carlene O’ Connor (Set in Ireland)

The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath (Rory Gilmore Challenge)

99 Red Balloons by Elisabeth Carpenter (Lucky Charm on Cover)

I also read a few extras.

Edwina by Willow Rose

One Plus One by Hoo Moyes

How to Work for Yourself by Bryan Cohen

21 Days to a Novel by Michael a. Stackpole

March’s book total was 12 books, and my favorites were Nothing to See Here, The Bell Jar, and The Handmaid’s Tale. I wrote a short review for each book on Goodreads.

Have you read anything especially memorable lately?

  1. You did read a lot in March! I read several books in March, but my two faves were Hard for Hope to Flourish (an anthology by Bell, Maxwell, and Ouphe) because the stories were unique and scary. And my other March fave was White Noise by Rhonda Parrish, a way-cool zombie poetry collection that seriously isn’t as cheesy as it sounds.:-)

  2. I haven’t heard of any of those, Priscilla! I’ll have to check them out. Thank you!
