Books read in March 2009

1. American Gods by Neil Gaiman
2. The Cement Garden by Ian McEwan
3. Rumour Has It by Jill Mansell
4. Goodnight, Beautiful by Dorothy Koomson
5. The Eye In The Door by Pat Barker
6. Remember Me? by Sophie Kinsella
7. Looking For Alaska by John Green

Seven books this month. Not bad considering the hectic few weeks that I've had. And I've been trying to review more of the books that I read as you can see, even if they are mini-reviews! Look for a review of Looking For Alaska coming soon. I've mentioned it already, it's partially the inspiration behind my Doing Something Different Project.

It's been an OK month for reading, but I'm hoping for better in April. In March it always felt like I wanted to be reading but had no time for it so I always felt a bit surprised that I had finished a book. Plus, while reading one book I always felt like there was a different book that I wanted to read more or that I thought I would enjoy more than my current book. I'd like to say that won't be the case for April, but already I've started reading Pale View of Hills by Kazuo Ishiguro but desperately want to put it down and read Marshmallows for Breakfast by Dorothy Koomson instead. Oops!

My favourite book of the month? American Gods or Looking For Alaska. What was yours?


  1. I loved American Gods! What an excellent reading month you had...

  2. I really enjoyed American Gods. My favourite read this month - hmm jury't is still out on that one. I still haven't done my monthly roundup - will do mine as part of my Sunday Salon. I can't actually remember how many I read!

  3. I get that way especially when I have a ton of books that I am dying to read. It makes it really hard for me to focus on just one!

  4. Cement Garden is the only one of these that I have read. I am going to go read your review right now. Was a strange book!
