Read and TBR for March and April

A whole quarter of 2019 is finished. One more full month of teaching for me and then it’s time for a little break! I’ll still be working in May and June but at least I’ll have some extra time to focus on other projects too.

March was, oddly enough, a more successful reading month than Feb even allowing for the extra couple of days. I finished 13 books this month but that does include two that I started in Feb; and one that I finished in the morning of April 1 but I’m still counting it! I’m ahead on my Goodreads Challenge so I can slow down a bit when the vacation months hit and I have other outdoor activities to work on. I got through three more books from my physical TBR, for the year, so I can get some more… hopefully I won’t go too crazy but we all know how that goes!

Here’s what I read in March.

In terms of the cozy mysteries I got through Restaurant Weeks are Murder, Bat Wings, Rings and Apron Strings, Chutes and Ladders, The Case of the Killer Divorce, Above the Fold and Below the Belt and Once Upon a Spine. I read and listened to Merciful Secret, a suspense. On the romance front I read It’s In His Forever and In the Heir. Historical Fiction provided two entertaining reads in The Only Woman in the Room and Prince of Secrets and Shadows. Things We Need to Say and Six of Crows completed my list for March. I’ve included the links where I already posted the reviews and I’ll post the other reviews later this month.

I’m looking forward to three of my April reads in particular. Crooked Kingdom is the Six of Crows sequel that I can’t wait to get into! I so understand all the hype surrounding this duology. I’m really looking forward to a buddy read of A Charm of Finches by Suanne Laqueur. It’s the follow-up to An Exaltation of Larks. And I’m very excited to be doing another beta read as well! More on that later. I’ve also got an author request for Murder From Scratch and I want to tackle a book from my Kindle Unlimited backlog. A quarter of the year is already over and I haven’t started any of the three classics I wanted to read so I at least want to start, if not finish, one from that list too.

Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo

A Charm of Finches by Suanne Laqueur

Murder from Scratch by Leslie Karst

Corelli’s Mandolin by Louis de Bernieres

A Scone to Die for by H.Y. Hanna

Mistaken Identity Crisis by James J Cudney

Looking forward to these joys! Any particular book you are looking forward to this month?
