March Reading Wrap Up

march wrap up

March was a pretty good reading month for me! I didn’t read quite as much as I’d hoped, but I did find some new favorites. Overall, I’m happy with the ten books I read this month; I didn’t rate anything below a 3 (though one of them was a borderline 2). And even the ones I didn’t love, I’m glad I read, because they’re books I’d been meaning to read for a while. I feel I should mention that this month was a first for me in that there is one book I didn’t give a rating to, and that’s simply because it was a self-published book that felt like a draft, and I didn’t feel right rating something that didn’t seem finished to me.
