March Recap

Source
Holy cow! How in the heck is it already April?! I don't know where all the time goes, but it goes so quickly and there is NEVER ENOUGH. March went pretty well (although quickly, as we've already established), and I read 12ish books. The ish is because one was just a short story so it probably doesn't count, but I'm counting it because I'm the boss of this blog and 12 sounds better than 11.

One of the big things I did on the blog this month was join The Classics Club. Hosted by Jillian at A Room of One's Own, I've made it my goal to read 70 classics in the next five years. Check out my sign-up post or the page I added to find out more!

The other HUGE March event was.... THE HUNGER GAMES MOVIE. Seriously. I die. I saw it twice in one day, but I haven't written anything about it yet because I just haven't been able to collect all my thoughts. There was so much I loved about the movie, but I did have a few minor quibbles. I have a major book crush on Peeta, but felt that the movie took away some of his complexity. So I'm going to direct you to THE MOST AWESOME AND SPOT ON post about Gale & Peeta by Sarah Enni. I mean, seriously y'all, she perfectly identified the problems with Movie Peeta. And her bestie Danielle had me LOLing with her Movie Gale observations.

March was a really good month for reading because I LOVED several of the books I read. Stephanie Perkins' Lola and the Boy Next Door and Lauren Oliver's Pandemonium would probably take top billing as new favorites, but I also re-read The Hunger Games trilogy and those are some of my old favorites.
