Read in March 2013

Woah…. March was a crazy reading month! I set a personal record with 33 books. I’m not quite sure how I managed that, but 7 of these were graphic novels, and some of the other books were rather short reads (like Anthropology and Griffin & Sabine). I think that sadly, a lot of these books were read because it’s the husband’s busy season and while he still comes home on time, he works from home till pretty late, sometimes till 11.

    1. Yeah I’m not quite sure how that happened! 😛
      I quite loved Regeneration. I wasn’t sure about it at first – war novel and all, but very well-written


    1. I think I understand why some adore this book. The character of Owen Meany is just so unique and quite unforgettable. And their journey through childhood and all the secrets they uncover together is quite something. But then again if you’ve already given it a few chances and it has you thinking about the many other books out there waiting for you, well, there are too many books out there waiting…!
