For my March Goodreads Reading Challenge, I was supposed to read (a) a book that’s a collection of novels and (b) a book type you don’t usually buy. I had a book I was really eager to read that didn’t fit with this challenge so I decided to jump around a bit and come back to the collection of novels at a later time. So, here is what I read in March:
A book type you don’t usually buy: For this I went with a hardcover book. I do actually have a lot of hardcovers but the majority of my book purchases nowadays are eBooks so I figure it still counts! I read The Sound of Gravel by Ruth Wariner. It’s the true story of a girl growing up in a polygamous community in Mexico. I enjoyed the book and would recommend it.
A book in which the main character belongs to a minority: This particular topic doesn’t show up on my reading challenge list for a while but after winning an autographed bookmark, I thought I’d better read it! All of the main characters happen to be minorities – the main character is African-American, the love interest is biracial, etc. It’s a YA sci-fi romance. I believe this is the first book in a series and it’s only $0.99 on Amazon! I will definitely read the next book in this series when it’s released.
A book chosen for its cover: This is technically one of my April challenges but I finished the first two books and decided to keep going! I really did pick this book for its cover – so pretty! I will say that once I saw the cover, I also read the blurb, checked out a few reviews, etc. before I purchased it. It was actually a lot better than I thought it would be and was a quick read.
For April, I have to read: the book on my TBR list that matches my age! What did you read this month?
