Monthly Reading Review – March 2015
In March I have read:
A Momentary Delay by Reha Camuroglu ★★
Delayed Penalty (Dartmouth Cobras book 5) by Bianca Sommerland ★★★
Pretty Guardian Sailormoon (Short Stories vol 2) by Naoko Takeuchi ★★
No Second Chance by Harlan Coben ★★★
The Spinster and the Earl (Gentlemen of Honor: Book 1) by Beverly Adam ★★★
Legends in Exile (Fables: Book 1) Bill Willingham (Author), Lan Medina (Illustrator), Steve Leialoha (Artist), Craig Hamilton (Artist) ★★★★
1. How many books you’ve read last month? Are you happy with the amount you read?
March was especially busy month for me, but I managed to read 6 books and start two that I will continue reading in April
2. What was the book that made a best reading for you last month? Any scenes or character that made a lasting impression?
The best read of March for me was Legends in Exile (Fables: Book 1) Bill Willingham (Author) et all. I gave it four stars as an interesting intro to a new graphic novel series. I loved the almost any scene with Bigby Wolf! This fairy tale retelling will be continued!
3. Were there any not so good books for you last month? What made it hard or not enjoyable to read?
Pretty Guardian Sailormoon (Short Stories vol 2) by Naoko Takeuchi was kinda dissapointing. Plotholes could not be atributed to strange Japanese culture quirks anymore. Sadly I still like the characters and the general idea but I hate to admit that I might have outgrown this manga series….
4. How did the books you were reading last month fit in your reading plans if you had any?
Lately my reading plans consist of trying to fit the books that are already on my TBR pile into reading groups and book club monthly challenges. So far I get to squeeze one or two per month. My “reading in the moment” is suffering a bit tho
5. Any updates on the series you are reading or are you starting any new series?
I’ve finished the last volume I had avaliable from a few series I’ve been reading. These include: Sailor Moon manga series and Dartmouth Cobras series. Also I read two books that were first in the series, one of which I will be continuing. Last but not least I finally got to start reading Pale Demon from The Hollows series by Kim Harrison – next book of the series is waiting on my shelf for a few months now.
6. Would you like to recommend any books or authors you’ve been reading this last month?
I have two recommendations from March:
First a graphic novel series Legends in Exile (Fables: Book 1) Bill Willingham (Author), Lan Medina (Illustrator), Steve Leialoha (Artist), Craig Hamilton (Artist) Interesting for all who like fairy tale retelling. You can find my review HERE
Second is The Hollows series by Kim Harrison
Excellent urban fantasy series with many interesting characters!
Continuing reading for April:
Pale Demon (The Hollows book 9) by Kim Harrison
Gerard’s Beauty (Kingdom Series (Hall): Book 2) by Marie Hall
