How is it already April? Seriously. The days are just flying by this year.
Maybe it's because the weather is crap, but I read a fair amount in March. I finished eight books in March for a total of 3,120 pages. That brings the yearly total to 20 books and 7,237 pages. I'd say that's a pretty good start on my 77 book goal for the year.
So what'd I read?
Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead
The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion
Living Proof: A Novel of Key West by Kevin May
Unleashing Mr. Darcy by Teri Wilson
The Game Changer by J. Sterling
Broken Harbor by Tana French
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
Hyperbole and a Half: Unfortunate Situations, Flawed Coping Mechanisms, Mayhem, and Other Things That Happened by Allie Brosh
Definitely a mix
And now for the brief reviews, complete with number of stars

what I’m reading, what I think and what’s been added to my to-read list.
Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead ****
Go read last month's reading recap for a full review of the series. This was a decent ending to a six-book series, it tied stuff together.
The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion *****
I had no idea what to expect when I picked this up. I put it on my to-read list because it was a catchy title. Turned out to a fun story.
Living Proof: A Novel of Key West by Kevin May ***
I picked this up after seeing it on a counter in a little off the beaten path restaurant (with amazing quesadillas) I ate at in Key West. It was a quick read.
Unleashing Mr. Darcy by Teri Wilson ****
This was cute. A fun read.
The Game Changer by J. Sterling ***
A decent read, but it was kind of annoying that it seemed like every other word out of the male main character's mouth was profanity.
Broken Harbor by Tara French *****
One of my favorite books this month. I really, really like this author. She creates a story that leaves you guessing until the very end.
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell *****
Another one of my favorites. There was something about this story that just sucked me in. I seriously devoured this book in 24 hours, and that included taking breaks for sleeping and watching a lot of NCAA basketball.
Hyperbole and a Half: Unfortunate Situations, Flawed Coping Mechanisms, Mayhem, and Other Things That Happened by Allie Brosh ***
I don't read this blog, so I'm not sure exactly how it ended up on my to-read list. It was OK. The chapters about the dogs were the best. That and the one about the goose.
So that was March. In what might be a first, I actually don't have a stack of books sitting on my table waiting to be read and my hold list at the library is non-existent. Guess I better starting sifting through my somewhat lengthy to-read list and try to find some titles. Anyone have any suggestions?
