What I Read: March
Look at that sad little stack of books! I'm afraid that March was rather a slumpy reading month for me. (Mostly because of that first book, which I struggled through for almost the first half of the month.) As always, click on the titles for my Goodreads reviews.
Dangerous, by Shannon Hale. I love Shannon Hale. She's written some of my favorite books and I'd consider her one of my favorite authors, but wow. I don't really know what this was, and I don't know what to even say about it. It was like a crazy, bizarre, action-y, sci-fi teen romance that was originally going to be a trilogy but instead got crammed into one book. Hmph. I should have put it aside, but I wanted to see how much weirder it could get.
Life Among the Savages, by Shirley Jackson. I really enjoyed this! So far, Shirley Jackson has not let me down. This was so different from her usual books, but it was very funny. I love her writing style and I can't wait to read more by her.
Last in a Long Line of Rebels, by Lisa Lewis Tyre. I expected more from this middle grade novel, especially with such an adorable cover. (I know, I know, but I can't help it.) It handled racism in a graceful way and I love the little realistic bits that pop up in books like these, set in the south. But it wasn't as special and amazing as I'd hoped.
