Monthly Reads March 2008

Happy April's Fool Day!

Do people still make pranks on April's Fool day? Anyway, 1st of the month means Monthly Reads list! Seriously, I'm really glad I started this habit...

So March was a so-so month reading-wise. I have a total of 13 books read, which is not bad, but definitively down in the numbers so far for 2008. Also, considering that I didn't read at all while I was on my trip, it's really not bad...

So here are my reads:

1) The Perfect Wife by Victoria Alexander: C-
2) Making over Mr. Right by Judi McCoy: B
3) Personal Demon by Kelley Armstrong: B
4) Thigh High by Christina Dodd: B
5) The Healer by Sharon Sala: B
6) Every Move You Make by Carla Cassidy: B
7) To Dream Again by Laura Lee Guhrke: B
8) Witch Blood by Anya Bast: C+
9) Illegal Possession by Kay Hooper: B
10) Dagger Star by Elizabeth Vaughan: B
11) Touch of Evil by C.T. Adams & Cathy Clamp: C+
12) Touch of Madness by C.T. Adams & Cathy Clamp: C-
13) Twisted by Andrea Kane: B

So a lot of B reads, i.e. okay/good reads... but no wowzer :( And I thought I've reviewed a lot of books this month, but I guess not what I've been reading :D Anyway, if anyone has read the same book as me and is interested in a buddy review for Breezing Through, let me know :P

Oh, also... what are you guys looking forward for the month of April? I already got Dagger Star and The Healer... so that leaves Dark Needs at Night's Edge by Kresley Cole and The Brass Bed by Jennifer Stevenson, both coming out at the end of the month. There's also Strike Zone by Kate Angell, but that one I've pre-ordered and waiting for it to be shipped any day now... and finally, I want 50 Ways to Hex Your Lover by Linda Wisdom , but it's not in any of my bookstores! Why?!?!


  1. Sorry you did not like Witch Blood very much. I almost bought Dagger star today but hubby said i had to wait. I do have Strike Zone at home and will probably start it soon.
    I cannot wait for Kresley Cole's newest, I like that series. Another I am awaiting is Emma Holly's newest, Demon Fire.

  2. my March reading list is just sad. not one book I think. :( Oh wait... I know I have at least one. LOL!

    But there were no pranks done over here. I would have totally fallen for it too since I'm sad like that.

  3. Kris - Witch Blood was okay... It's hard to say, but the read wasn't bad... it's just at the end, it seems a bit cliche.

    You have Strike Zone?!?!?! Lucky you!! Good news for me is that they just shipped it to me. I hope to have it for the weekend.

    Isabel - What book?

    It was quiet yesterday... but then, I'm at work and most ppl here are sour instead of happy... so there wouldn't be any pranks played. In french, April's Fool Day is called "Poisson d'Avril" which means "Fish of April" so when we were still in school, ppl would try to stick paper fishes on other ppl's back. Weird, I know.

  4. I have to go get Elizabeth Vaughn's book! A "B" grade is good enough for me!

  5. I played a fun book-related prank on April Fool's Day. I was doing a children's program for 1st- 3rd graders(legends and stories about stars), and I hid all my colorful picture books and just had this huge tome about astrophysicists. I told them that if we got through it before the hour was out, we could do a craft, too. Their little eyes just about popped out of their heads, teehee. I'm such a nice librarian. :-D

    They did laugh at the joke, though!

  6. Katie - I hope you enjoy it! Can you email me? natuschan @ gmail . com (without the space)

    Darla - That was very, very evil of you! LOL :) but it was a nice prank :P
