March Reading Roundup

Heartstone - C.J. Sansom Paris: The Novel - Edward Rutherfurd The Crown - Nancy Bilyeau The Secret Diary of Eleanor Cobham - Tony Riches Sent - Margaret Peterson Haddix The Claimant: A Novel of the Wars of the Roses - Simon Anderson Crime and Punishment - Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Larissa Volokhonsky, Richard Pevear Why Authors Fail: 17 Mistakes Self-Published Authors Make That Sabotage Their Success (And How To Fix Them) - Derek C. Doepker

My reading this month didn't go at all as planned. In my March Reading List, I had a whopping 4 books that I didn't get to, but 3 of these were not on it. So much for the monthly TBR keeping me on track!


This is a learning process, and I'm learning more about how I read - audiobooks, Kindle, and traditional - and how it needs to affect my reading plans. 


Reviews for the month can be found below:

Heartstone by CJ Sansom 5 stars (If you haven't read Sansom, you must!)

Paris: The Novel by Edward Rutherfurd 4.5 stars

The Crown by Nancy Bilyeau 4 stars

Sent by Margaret Haddix 3.5 stars

The Secret Diary of Eleanor Cobham by Tony Riches 3.5 stars

The Claimant by Simon Anderson 3 stars

Why Authors Fail by Derek Doepker 3 stars (really more like 2.5, I must have been feeling generous.)

Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoyevsky 1 star (Don't judge me!)
