March recap

First of all, my sidebar widget lists aren't up-to-date because (1) I've been neglecting the blog and (2) I got an inexplicable error message each time I've tried to update them today. With any luck this issue will get resolved sometime in the near future.

Now for a bit of disclosure -
1. affiliate links (for more information see this post)
2. mentions of books I may have received for free

Books read in March

25. A Corner of White by Jaclyn Moriarty (post forthcoming) - Netgalley
24. The Friday Society by Adrienne Kress (post forthcoming) - library book
23. The James Joyce Murder by Amanda Cross (post forthcoming) - BookCrossing book
22. Currant Creek Valley by Raeanne Thayne (post forthcoming) - Netgalley
21. Green Corn Ceremonialism in the Easter Woodlands by John Witthoft - library book via interlibrary loan
20. Agent to the Stars by John Scalzi (see post) - borrowed from my dad
19. Grave Consequences by Lisa Bergren (see post) - Netgalley
18. Etiquette and Espionage by Gail Carriger (post) - personal copy

I gave up on -
The Thing About Thugs by Tabish Khair
reason: I hit my renew limit before I finished it so I had to bring it back to the library unfinished
