Monthly Recap
And because I would miss doing it, my favorite bookish posts of the last week:
How was your March? 
Link up with your highlights, monthly recaps or favorites below!


  1. I LOVED Undecided. It was a book I kind of needed. Looks like a great reading month for you!

  2. Wow, 19 books, that’s a lot. I see so much love for Undecided around blogosphere. I need to pick it up soon.

  3. I am so excited about the fact that YA authors are going to write about superheroes! I am not big on comics so I cannot wait to read actual YA novels :)

  4. NINETEEN books? Wowzers! I do good to get six to eight read each month. Go you!

  5. I am impressed! 19 books is amazing! I used to read that much but my daughter keeps me way too busy these days. I can't wait to read Every Heart a Doorway. I have it pre-ordered so I hope to be able to read it right away. Hope you have a fantastic April!

  6. I also can't wait for The Raven King! Hopefully I can avoid all spoilers until I have a chance to read it!

  7. Woah, you read a ton of books in March. That's awesome! I did okay, but not nearly as much as I probably could do. Granted, I started a new job so getting used to that these past couple weeks. I have a ton to read/review in April though, so my number this month will probably be crazy high! haha


  8. Second time I've seen Undecided today. Think I need to check that one out! What a great month - awesome numbers!!

  9. Eeep! You had such a FANTASTIC month in books!!! I'm dying to read Undecided!! I wasn't approved on Netgalley, but I'll be buying it for sure in the near future. I HAVE to read it!! :) Hope you're enjoying your weekend!

  10. This comment has been removed by the author.

  11. Wow Eva you've been killing it with your reading in March, I started off really well, but things just got hectic for me :( But I'm thrilled to see Undecided as one of your favourite reads, it definitely ended up being one of my favourite reads for this month and one that surprised me the most (as I didn't think I would like it so much!) I hope you have a wonderful reading month in April!

  12. I feel like I have been seeing Undecided *everywhere* the last few days. And every mention of it is someone gushing over it. It's like a message from the universe that I need to read this book. :) I'm more excited about it than ever!

  13. Wow amazing month for you! I'm dying to read Just Fall.

  14. oh it looks like March was a great month for you. Looks like there was some great articles done on some good topics. I should read At The Edge and Undecided...especially since you enjoyed Undecided so much. I did like Study of Seduction quite a bit.

  15. Undecided looks so good! Wow, looks like you had an amazing month. :D

  16. Oops, I just deleted my own comment. That's so annoying.
    Anyways! 19 books is amazing! I haven't a month like that in forever. I need to read Undecided, since you liked it so much, it must be good. Also, Relief Map kinda caught my eye.

  17. What a great reading month, you had! Undecided is new to me, but I'll be checking the library later to see if it is available there. I'm still waiting on my next epic read this year. I've seen a few really high praises for Relief Map and a few scathing ones, too. I'm on the fence about reading that one. Congrats on such a good month!

  18. Looks like you had a great month! I hope you enjoy Every Heart has a doorway. I really enjoyed that one. I just wish it could have been longer. :)

Review: History of Wolves by Emily Fridlund

History of Wolves by Emily Fridlund

Blurb from Goodreads:
Linda has an idiosyncratic home life: her parents live in abandoned commune cabins in northern Minnesota and are hanging on to the last vestiges of a faded counter-culture world. The kids at school call her 'Freak', or 'Commie'. She is an outsider in all things. Her understanding of the world comes from her observations at school, where her teacher is accused of possessing child pornography, and from watching the seemingly ordinary life of a family she babysits for. Yet while the accusation against the teacher is perhaps more innocent than it seemed at first, the ordinary family turns out to be more complicated. As Linda insinuates her way into the family's orbit, she realises they are hiding something. If she tells the truth, she will lose the normal family life she is beginning to enjoy with them; but if she doesn't, their son may die. Superbly-paced and beautifully written, HISTORY OF WOLVES is an extrao…
