BOOK TALK: March 2016 in Review

Yes, that title says March.  Because I am so far behind and I like to have these monthly wrap-ups to help track some stats on my end.  So, bear with me as I catch up over the next couple of days, just in time to wrap up the month of May!

The TOP POST for the month was two-fold.  My Spring 2016 Bloggiesta post had the most comments.  My little interview with a local author had the most hits, but I also believe it should have had the most comments because it was so much fun.  In fact, I believe my recent inactivity on the blog really hurt in getting the word out there about this one, so if you haven't had a chance to check out Author Jamie Ford Shares His Favorites, go check it out now!!

My TOP PIC for the month was a fun one courtesy of #BBIMarch (a special Instagram challenge from Book Bloggers International).  It featured my little literary pup and my current read (which will appear as my favorite for the month below!).

The BOOKS READ for the month were pretty sparse.  Reading for my Indigenous Lit class took priority during the month, and I simply didn't get much time to read in the evenings beyond books for class.

  1. The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett
  2. Ceremony by Leslie Marmon Silko
  3. Robopocalypse by Daniel H. Wilson
  4. Fool's Crow by James Welch

Though I didn't have a lot of books to choose from, the choice for my FAVORITE READ was really not a hard one.  Fool's Crow by James Welch was a book that I may never have picked up if it weren't for my Indigenous Lit class, and I ended up loving it.

I will be back tomorrow for my monthly wrap-up for April, and later this week to wrap-up May.  Then, I can get back to talking about books in more detail!!  It's good to be back!!

Since March was so long ago, let me ask you something a little different . . . what has been one of your favorite reads of the year so far?
