Best Book of March/April Preview

March was an absolutely amazing month for reading, folks. I'm having a tough time picking a favorite...We're going with Cinder by Marissa Meyer, which earned a 4.5 stars from me and totally lived up to all the hype.
In case your curious, Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins was the close runner up. I recommend both, actually.

There were a couple of DNFs in March. I couldn't get into First Drop of Crimson by Jeaniene Frost. I find that, while I love Cat and Bones, I'm not crazy about her writing style in other contexts. That happens to me sometimes. I also barely got into Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick, finding it too stupid to be worth the library fees it would have cost me to keep it. I think my enjoyment of Hush, Hush, which was based on a lot of guilty pleasure, was in fact a fluke.

So what's coming up in April? 

First of all, on April 3, you'll see my review of Night Sky by Jolene Perry go live. I agreed to read it for the book tour, and ended up really loving it. I can't seem to get enough contemporary romance lately.
Lover Reborn by J.R. Ward--66% read, and I'm not going to lie, it does not suck. The last book had me worried that the series might be on a hopeless downward spiral...but this one does not suck.

Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake--About 50% done. This one came really highly recommended. I'm excited to see where the story goes.

The Next Door Boys by Jolene B. Perry--7% done. I liked Night Sky so much, I just really wanted more from this author.

Princess Charming by Nicole Jordan

Daughter of the Forest by Juliet Marillier

Young Avengers by Allan Heinberg (A Things I Read For Love Review)

Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins

The Masque of the Black Tulip by Lauren Willig

Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen

Kind of a different mix this month, but I'm excited about it. Happy April, everyone!


  1. I'm glad that you had such a great reading month in March. And I look forward to hearing what you think about Along for the Ride as I really enjoyed that one.

    I hope April is just as good to you as March was :)

    1. Yeah, I found Sarah Dessen's name on an "If you like Stephanie Perkins, you'll like..." type of list, and I'm so excited to try her out. I'm glad you liked it!


Thoughtful comments are appreciated! I always respond to them, and I usually return the favor! Happy reading!
