March 2017 Reading Roundup

April 7, 2017

The end of March zoomed past me, and here it is, the 7th of April and I’m just now getting to writing up the books I read in March.

Starting this month, I’m participating in the Hub Reading Challenge by Young Adult Library Services of the American Library Association. YALSA has pulled together a list of award-winning and noteworthy books for teens, and my library system has created a challenge to read 25 books from the list by June. Titles marked with an asterisk are my books toward the challenge.

Print Books (E-Books and Paper)

  1. The Pirate Hunters by Robert Kurson
  2. Agent of Chaos by Kami Garcia
  3. If I Was Your Girl by Meredith Russo
  4. Con Academy by Joe Schrieber
  5. The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden
  6. Midnight Taxi Tango by Daniel José Older
  7. Battle Hill Bolero by Daniel José Older28250908
  8. Panda Pants by Jacqueline Davies (read aloud for Library Story Time, to great acclaim by babies and toddlers)
  9. *Scythe by Neal Shusterman
  10. *Ada Lovelace, the Poet of Science by Diane Stanley
  11. *The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen
  12. Love, Lies and Spies by Cindy Anstey
  13. That Summer by Sarah Dessen (pro tip: do not read two Sarah Dessen books in the space of one month.)
  14. Georgia Peaches and Other Forbidden Fruit by Jaye Robin Brown

Graphic Novels

*Black Panther #1 by Ta-Nehisi Coates


Monstrous Regiment by Terry Pratchett

So, that’s 16 books finished for the month, bringing the grand total raised for EveryLibrary to $48 and it looks like I’ve read 4 for the Hub Challenge in March.

And just about every book I read this month was a library book, except for Midnight Taxi Tango, which I own.

Making a note here to write about the two books I didn’t finish this month: The Last of August by Brittany Cavallaro and Devil’s Advocate by John Maberry. Both are sequels I’d been eager to read, but they didn’t live up to the first volume in either case. Blah.
