March 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:
- The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt
- Slaap by Haruki Murakami
- The Grand Sophy by Georgette Heyer
- Ask the Passengers by A.S. King
- Adaptation by Malinda Lo
- The Odyssey by Homer
- Een mooie jonge vrouw by Tommy Wieringa
- 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 🙁
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!
What 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!
