Overall Reflection:
Well it certainly has been an interesting month of reading. The book that I most thoroughly enjoyed are: Original Sin, All Unquiet Things, The Iron King, and Soulless by Gail Carriger. I was most surprised by Soulless. I had not anticipated that I would enjoy it as much as I actually did. The Sky is Everywhere is a close second...I enjoyed it much more than I had originally thought I would. I think I ruined the book version of Shutter Island by watching the movie beforehand, though the movie was incredible. I was most disappointed by Shadowglass. I had previously enjoyed Shadowfae by the same author. However, Shadowglass just didn't live up to my expectations. Many of the books that I read and enjoyed were books I discovered by reading blog reviews. So many thanks to my fellow book bloggers for recommendations and discoveries! :) I look forward to another month of reading and blogging in April!

  2. A nice, strong month! And 7 books is quite good--especially since you had a bit of trouble recently. :)
