March Wrap-Up

March is done and dusted so we’re now a quarter of the way through 2022. It seems scary how quickly time seems to pass nowadays.

March was a quiet month with no holidays or excursions anywhere which of course meant that there was more time for reading. In fact I managed to read an amazing 27 books. It’s incredible how much more time I have to read now that I’m mainly retired. I also had one book that I didn’t finish. That’s really unusual for me as I generally skim read my way to the end of a book but I couldn’t get to grips with No one is talking about this by Patricia Lockwood.

Net Galley books read in March

I made a real effort this month to only request books that I definitely wanted to read and to try and reduce the number of books on my Net Galley shelf. I think I did fairly well as my review rating is now up to 86% and I have less than 20 books on my shelves.

Apart from the DNF, all my books this month were 3 stars or higher and most of them were 4 stars, books that I really enjoyed reading but just not quite at that amazing level of my favourites.

My ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ reads for this month were:

Saint Death’s Daughter by CSE Cooney (NetGalley)
To Paradise by Hanya Yanagihara
Islands of Abandonment by Cal Flynn
Medalon by Jennifer fallon (reread)

April might be a slightly quieter month in terms of reading as we have various things planned but I have some amazing books lined up to read.

  1. Wow, you read so much this past month! 🤩 And To Paradise!! I absolutely adored that book, too – it might not have made me sob quite as much as A Little Life did, but still left me in an extremely emotional book hangover, so I’d agree that your five stars are very justified! 🥰

  2. WOAH! That’s an awesome reading month!! Congrats on 86%! That’s exciting. I’m trying to get to 100 but I doubt that will happen because some of these arcs don’t release until Sept. lol I hope you have an amazing April!

      1. I’ve hit it a couple of times!! Mostly, bc I catch up and go a bit before I’m approved for something. I get declined a lot. lol!

  3. Wow, you sure had a great March! Congratulations on the 86%! Well done. I’m trying to do the same, but it’s taking time for me as I haven’t been reading as much as I usually do. Nice
