In March, I read:
- Irises by Francisco X. Stork, a teen/YA novel.
- The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake by Aimee Bender, a unique novel I read for our library's book discussion.
- An Abundance of Katherines by John Green, a teen/YA novel and my first John Green, finally!
- The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid, a hilarious childhood memoir by Bill Bryson.
- Glory Be by Augusta Scattergood, a middle-grade novel set in Mississippi in the 60's.
- Falling Together by Marisa De los Santos, a novel listened to on audio.
My favorite? Tough call, but I think I enjoyed The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid the most, though The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake was a close second.
As for my 2012 Reading Challenges, I added 5 new states to my Where Are You Reading list: California, Texas, Mississippi, Iowa, Pennsylvania and added a second book set in Tennessee. I didn't read any new dystopian novels this month, but I did read my first memoir of the year for the Memorable Memoirs Challenge. For the 12 in '12 Challenge, I added one more book (for a total of 3 so far) from my TBR shelf, all 3 recommended by my husband. It's clear I should have listened to him and read these long ago! And I finally added one title to the What's In a Name Challenge: something you'd see in the sky (thunderbolt). I was starting to wonder if I'd ever make progress on that one!
