A very belated March Summary…
I must apologise for the delay of this post! Work and other aspects of life have been taking up much more of my time lately and in truth I felt I needed a little break from blogging. But I’m back! And as you can see I had an excellent March in terms of reading! I’m surprised I even had the time to read so many books, and so many of them were rated so highly. Choosing my book of the month was a doddle for me! It has to be Margo Lanagan’s The Brides of Rollrock Island. Margo is an author I have wanted to read for many years so it’s wonderful that she lived up to, and even exceeded my expectations! If you’ve never read any of her work, please do! You won’t regret it. Here is an overview of everything I read and reviewed in March, in order of how much I enjoyed them:
Book of the Month
Whatever age you are, and whether you’re male or female, please read this novel. It will definitely be a contender for my favourite book of the year, and I want to share it with as many people as possible! The Brides of Rollrock Island is a novel that deserves to be read, loved and cherished, and then read again. I’ve definitely learnt my lesson and now know never to delay in reading a novel by Margo Lanagan ever again.
The Brides of Rollrock Island by Margo Lanagan
The Paris Wife (audiobook) by Paula McLain
The Street Sweeper by Elliot Perlman
Four and Twenty Blackbirds by Cherie Priest

The Lifeboat by Charlotte Rogan
Lady Chatterley’s Lover by D. H. Lawrence
Plans For April
I still have a few reviews to post for a couple of books, in particular A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin, and I have just finished the wonderful When She Woke by Hillary Jordan. This month there are a few books I’m looking to read, such as The Light Between Oceans by M. L. Stedman, which is due for release at the end of this month, and I would also like to finally get around to Peter Carey’s The Chemistry of Tears. I have just started reading Annabel by Kathleen Winter, and can already say that at 50 pages in, I can’t put it down!
Apologies again for this month’s delay, I will try to be a better blogger, I promise! 🙂
