Monthly Rundown: March 2018

Books Read = 9

Sure did. NINE?! The hell did I even do last month? Well, I worked my ass off and was so tired that I was going home and relaxing, not having the brain power to do anything but. I did manage to post a single review this month so I guess the month wasn’t a complete loss.

Audiobook Review – Red Sparrow (Red Sparrow Trilogy #1) by Jason Matthews

Unreviewed Reads

Best of the Month: The Hidden Oracle (The Trials of Apollo #1) by Rick Riordan ★★★★
I took a very long break from reading any Riordan for no particular reason but The Hidden Oracle was so very enjoyable. I immediately read the second installment and I’m already dying for the third. Ties into the original Percy series nicely.

Least Favorite: You & Me & Why We Are in Love by Aurelia Alcaïs ★
This bizarre poetry collection was so, so bad. “Pamela has found a very young lover. He could be her son. She doesn’t love him – she adores him.” I mean… seriously?

Biggest Surprise: Eligible by Curtis Sittenfeld ★★★★
I’ve had this one for ages but I had to read the original P&P first… I finally got around to that last year. And this one was all sorts of fun and loved seeing how the classic was translated into a modern tale.

Biggest Disappointment: Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli ★★★
Now hear me out: I enjoyed this, I did, but it didn’t resonate with me as it did with most other readers. (My bestie loved it.) This isn’t super my genre though so I was taking a chance on it as it was. I loved the movie though for what it’s worth.

  1. I have a copy of Eligible that I’d like to get to, especially since your post reminded me that I have it. Glad you loved it! I’m very fond of P&P retellings. I know what you mean about not wanting to review books, though. I am so tired after working a full time job and then for some reason when I get home from work, my family wants me to do stuff for them. The nerve! Make your own dinner so I can read!
