Ah, March…

Ah, March…

brilliant monthsMarch was odd. I felt like I barely had any time to read. I was extremely busy and I really desperately had to squeeze in some reading time.

And yet I still managed to read 8 books? How?! When did this happen?

These are the books I read in March:

  1. The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt
  2. Slaap by Haruki Murakami
  3. The Grand Sophy by Georgette Heyer
  4. Ask the Passengers by A.S. King
  5. Adaptation by Malinda Lo
  6. The Odyssey by Homer
  7. Een mooie jonge vrouw by Tommy Wieringa
  8. Mostly Harmless (Hitchhiker’s Guide, #5) by Douglas Adams

It was a good reading month! My highlights for the month are Ask the Passengers and The Odyssey. I ended the month with Mostly Harmless, the last volume to the Hitchhiker’s Guide, and was left kind of disappointed 🙁

Vaslav I did more than reading this month. On March 1st I also went to the Oscarweekend, a two day event where they show 25 different Oscar movies each day (and you can watch 5 of them), where I saw Twelve Years a Slave among others. Two weeks ago I saw Shakespeare’s Julius Ceasar, a really cool adaptation of the play with local drumbands! And last week I saw Vaslav, a stage adaptation of one of my all time favourite books by Dutch author Arthur Japin. I hope the book will get translated to English sometime soon!

LGBT MonthWhat will I be reading in April? Well, most of the books (if not all) I’m going to read will be for the LGBT Month hosted by Cayce and Laura! Make sure to sign up! It’s going to be an awesome event! Also check out #LGBTApril on Twitter!

And, keep an eye out because… I will be hosting a giveaway! 😀

As for myself, during the event I will probably be focusing on literary fiction and not so much on YA (I’m saving that for the year-long LGBT YA challenge) 🙂 Very excited for the event!

    1. Aaaaand LGBT Month has begun! WOOOOO 😀

      I should be reading 4-5 books each month (I’m aiming at 52 in a year, so one per week). But I have no idea how I ended up reading 8 since I didn’t have any time to read XD But it still happened….

      I’m a bit wary of Oscar movies too, but Twelve Years a Slave was really really good!

  1. How did you like Goldfinch? I picked it up the other day because…..I liked the cover.

    Also, 8 books in one month? I have this vivid image–which is actually a rationalization–of you somehow distilling the words from those books in some vat, then imbibing the concentrated serum. Otherwise, I can’t believe it. I just can’t.

    But that’s the envy speaking.

    1. I really liked The Goldfinch but I totally get the negative reviews too. It just goes on, and on, and on… and on….. Some parts I didn’t like as much but by the end of the book my overall feeling was that I loved it 🙂

      And 8 books… I DON’T KNOW. I REALLY DON’T KNOW. I have no idea how that happened! I had no time whatsoever! They just crept onto me and suddenly it was all “*BOOM* you’ve read 8 books!”.
