2017 March Reads

Three months checked. Nine more to go. Have a look at BookLikes bloggers March bookish roundups and let us know how are you doing in your 2017 reading challenge.

 

Illuminae - Jay Kristoff,Amie Kaufman Kill't Dead...Or Worse: Sex, murder, and toxic waste: Nowhere Else But Texas - Richard Carleton Hacker Crooked Kingdom: A Sequel to Six of Crows - Leigh Bardugo The Faerie Guardian (Creepy Hollow, #1) - Rachel Morgan

Hello fellow book lovers.  I hope you all had a great month of March. For me it went by way to fast again, there is never enough time in a month for all the books I want to read. I'm just glad that we are starting to head into April and the weather will hopefully be nicer.   I'm also caught up on ARCs, well almost but I think we never really caught up with them, because luckily we always get more... continue reading

 

Major Conflict: One Gay Man's Life in the Don't-Ask-Don't-Tell Military - Jeffrey McGowan Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game - Michael Lewis The Girls Who Went Away: The Hidden History of Women Who Surrendered Children for Adoption in the Decades Before Roe v. Wade - Ann Fessler Rick Steves Travel as a Political Act - Rick Steves

Overall a not great reading month, with some serious low-level ratings. A lot of disappointment in the content of some of these books. But I am either on track or ahead on some challenges, so at least I am not falling behind while traveling around. Best part of my reading this month is finally visiting the British Library and its long standing exhibit... continue reading

 

The Dutch Girl: Renegades of the American Revolution - Donna Thorland Mackenzie's Mission - Linda Howard The Forbidden Duke (The Untouchables Book 1) - Darcy Burke Undiscovered - Anna Hackett

I finished off so many series (some I decided to give up on) thanks to my themed month. Those selection books will be denoted with ***book cover***. I'm really happy I do this, it helps to vary my sub-genres and whittle down my tbr books that I would normally keep shoving to the side. April is my Singles month, which basically consists of me blindly pulling out two books (one contemporary, one historical) from my closet boxes... continue reading

My Tardy March Wrap-Up

 

 
March 2017 (better late than never, I guess)
 
New Reviews Posted
(clicking on cover will bring you to my review @ Blogger, sorry I'm too lazy to format this twice!)
 
 
March in Review:
 
♦ March was a pretty lame month of reading and I have no excuse. Yikes, I really jumped on the slacking wagon and stayed there most of the month. I read and reviewed 4 books, 2 of them audios.  
 
♦ I'm still on track for my Goodreads Challenge so things could be worse!
 
♦ I did DNF one of these books so I guess I'm getting better at quitting when I should?
 
Reviews Coming Soon/Posted in April:

This month I'm hoping to pull something surprising from the TBR pile and catch up on my audiobooks before requesting more of them! How's your month looking?

Angel’s Monthly Wrap Up – March 2017

 

WOW, March is over and April is here. I did some gardening this month. The weather has been rain and then sun, then back to rain. We only get a few days of clear weather then more rain. I’m ready for the warm sunny weather to stay. The days that it’s been nice I’ve been reading outside. It feels good to be outdoors.

Owner/Review and mind behind Angel’s Guilty Pleasures. However what I am not is a writer. I apologize now for the grammatical and punctuation errors I make, because I know I’m going to make them. I’m a mother, wife, dog owner, animal, and book lover. My favorite animals are horses. As for reading I love all things paranormal & urban fantasy. My favorite shifters are dragons!

Best part of my reading this month is finally visiting the British Library and its long standing exhibit (the BL is between special exhibits at the moment)! Unfortunately, visitors can't take pictures of the documents/books in the exhibit so I don't have any to show you. I am going back for the upcoming exhibit on the Russian Revolution, which turns 100 this year. The British Library will also do an exhibit on Harry Potter this year.
