March Favorites and Stats

It’s hard to believe we started the month in Tennessee with short trip to Georgia before heading home after a month away. I never did write about it and it’s not going to happen now, although never say never.

My plan for Women’s History Month was to only read books by women I had read before. Due to poor (ie none) planning for the month I was able to accomplish reading a woman everyday, but not always someone I’d read read before.

In March I read 35 books and watched 2 bookish movies. For the year I’ve read 101 books in 90 days and watched 3 bookish movies (picture books are definitely padding this number :))

In March I read 20 physical books, 3 audio books, 3 e-books.

    I still haven’t read Tana French but I got her newest book for Christmas. Now to make the time to read it! I read 3 of your fiction titles!

      I hope you like it. I’ve only read two Tana French books and I’ve loved them both. They are both older though so I look forward to seeing what you think of her newer titles.

    So impressive! I’d heard mixed reviews about The Only Woman in the Room but maybe I’ll give it a go since I’ve been really fascinated by Hedy Lamarr. And your book photos are so spot on! I’m loving the creativity. You have inspired me to take more time and take pics of my books for reviews.

    I’m over halfway through The Likeness of Tana French’s series…I am enjoying it but the plot is sooo dumb. So I’m looking forward to Faithful Place since it’s getting such great reviews!

    • stacybuckeye says:

      If you know a lot about Hedy Lamarr the book might not work for you, but since I knew nothing I was good.
      Thanks about the photos. I’m enjoying my 10 minutes of creativity every day πŸ™‚

    Even without the picture books, that is a lot of reading medium/big books! Love it! Without picture books, I can’t get into double digits even.

    Murder on the Orient Express is on my list for April. I’ve watched one of the recent movies based on the book so we’ll see if I stay hooked to the book. Happy April!

    I’ve still only read In the Woods by Tana French. I have all her other books. I don’t know why I haven’t read them. Story of my reading life. LOL Looks like you are doing great with your challenge, Stacy. Have a wonderful April in books!
