The Heroine's March 2012 Reads

This entry is a bit late since we are now settling down in our new home in San Diego (blog post to come). I didn't read anything the last week of March, so I think I did pretty well. I am happy that I am getting back into reading and a bit of writing. Today I put together my office/spare room so it hard not to feel happy! Anyway, here are my March Reads!

The Space Between by Brenna Yovanoff
Between the plot and setting, this book kept me engaged from the very beginning. I had no clue what was going to happen next.

Blood Magic by Tessa Gratton
I finally read all books by The Merry Sisters of Fate (which includes the book above), and I believe this one is my favorite out of all their work. I'm a huge fan of witch books, and this one was no different except that it is different. The switch between two perspectives and their journey into blood magic kept me reading. There are twists and turns that I didn't see coming, and that is one reason why I am looking forward to the other two books in the trilogy.

Legend by Marie Lu
Mockingjay pin an awesome friend
gave me for the movie.
Our last event in Fargo
before the big move.
This is another one of those novels that switches between two perspectives-- and it is more than worth of it. Seeing both sides of the story as pieces are fitted together have this book moving at a fast pace that also kept me guessing at what would happen next. One of the big revelations wasn't too surprising, but it doesn't matter to me. This dystopian was well written and I am ready for more!

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
This is a re-read that I decided to do before the big movie (which I concluded is utterly breathtaking). There is one scene that I wished stayed in the movie (Spoiler: Peeta losing his leg and Katniss's reaction), but it was great preparation in some of the little details. I can't wait to read the next two (again) as the other movies come out.

Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi 
There aren't many books that I leave unfinished so I hope not to have this section often. I couldn't get into this writing, and since I have quite a few books on my list, I figured it was time to move on. I do give books between 50-100 pages to decide, and sometimes it just happens. I will refer you to a review by a friend that did finish the book just to be fair.

Currently Reading
Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi

Happy reading!
