So how did your reading month pan out?


  1. Wow, so many good books! I have All Summer Long in audio format - hope to listen soon. Have a great March!

    1. I think it would be awesome on audio Mary, so hope it is.

  2. Wow Kathryn quite the month! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Very productive month! I hope you read some Fantasy and memoirs in March. For some reason I'm into memoirs a lot lately. My February wrap up is coming up this Sunday. I'll be back to add the link :)

    1. I do love fantasy and I enjoy a memoir now and then as well, but just depends on what's in the calendar!! Actually I should look at memoirs on NG next time I'm there.

  4. For whatever reason, I just dropped doing month-end-updates. :/ It's not by design at all. Haha. Congratulations on reading so many "new-to-you" authors. I'm working on reading more diverse books, too. I'm currently reading Mischling by Affinity Konar. Great progress this month, Kathryn!

  5. 11 books is pretty good!! Happy March!

  6. Great month! I am eager to get the new Karen White book...and it's been too long since I read a Dorothea Benton Frank book. Have a great March!

  7. Oh...I hope you enjoy The Shadow Sister - I love this series and ended up liking the audio version! I know you had reservations about the narration, but I had no problems with her. I have the Pam Jenoff book on my shelf - hoping to get to it soon - I love her writing! One of my favorite books of hers if The Last Summer at Chelsea Beach - so good! I need to get my hands on the new Sarah Jio book - I've only read a few of her books, but so enjoy them!

    Happy March!!!

  8. It was a productive month and you have so many great reads! The Susan Mallery looks great and I've been meaning to read most of your other authors. I keep hoping to start that Lucinda Riley series. It sounds like something I would absolutely love! Hope March is amazing!

  9. February does fly by. I was surprised at how much I read. Looking forward to many of these books.

  10. 11 seems the magic number for people's reading this month. I love the cover of the Karen White novel. Really eye catching.

  11. An amazing month for you, Kathryn. Eleven books is great!!

    I didn't do a post, but I read the most books I have ever read in one month this past February. I read seven books...I normally read two or three. :)

    Loved Readers of The Broken Wheel. Three of the five authors are new to me. I only know Pam Jenoff and Katarina Bivald.

    Looks like some good titles coming up for you.

    Have a great weekend and month of reading in March.


  12. You had a great month, Kathryn! I really want to read The Orphan's Tale.

  13. Wow, I am always SO impressed by how many books you read in a single month! 4-6 is normal for me, and reading 8 books in one month is a really remarkable month for me.

    Sounds like a lot of great books in a short month. I'll come back to link-up my monthly summary...and soon as I finish my reviews for last month & write my summary!
