In mid-March, I moved to a new city and started a new job at the end of the month. My count was down from February, but considering four of my seven books were after I was already working full time, I was happy with the number.
- Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes (March 07)
- Modern Romance by Aziz Ansari (Mar 13)
- Why Not Me? by Mindy Kaling (Mar 17)
- Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge (Mar 27)
- The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie (Mar 29)
- Ice Like Fire by Sara Raasch (Mar 30)
- Anatomy of a Misfit by Andrea Portes (Mar 31)
The best book from this month was definitely Modern Romance. I finished it and immediately wanted to read more books like it (If anyone has recommendations, I would love some). I really don’t read enough nonfiction, and this was such an interesting and engaging approach. Like with Ready Player One, I recommended it to my boyfriend and we both liked it.
My one other note for the month was that I read The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian on audiobook. Sherman Alexie is the narrator, and at first I was confused as to why he was reading it. I was told by a friend that authors or actors reading an audiobook is fairly unusual, but it was a great choice. His accent is so specific, and it really enhanced and informed the story in a way that a professional narrator wouldn’t have been able to do.
