March Monologues

I know it’s the second day of March, but I still wanted to post a to-do list for this month. I started this blog on February 19 this year with a grand total of… four posts. I’m hoping to do much, much better this month.

Here’s a list of the books I got/borrowed this month- and it’s not an In My Mailbox meme or whatever; I don’t get enough books every week to talk about anyways. So here goes.

  • Across the Universe by Beth Revis- I’m halfway through this one, and it’s oh-so-good.
  • Delirium by Lauren Oliver- another dystopian novel- I love dystopian books.
  • The Eternal Ones by Kirsten Miller- about forever love. Good thing it doesn’t have vampires in it.
  • The Mockingbirds by Daisy Whitney- it seems really interesting, something like a teen detective crew.
  • Paranormalcy by Kiersten White- I’m generally not a fan of paranormal novels, but hopefully this one’s different.
  • Fat Vampire by Adam Rex- a funny vampire story? Get outta here. But that’s exactly what this book is, so I’m looking forward to reading it.
  • Fever Crumb by Philip Reeve- I’ve read Philip Reeve books before, so I’m happy I got a YA book by him.
  • Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare- I’m probably one of the only people who hasn’t read this series yet. Can’t wait to read it!
  • Ship Breaker by Paolo Bacigalupi- another dystopian novel! Yay!
  • Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly- a historical fiction novel, so yay again.

So yeah. That’s my reading quota for March. I also decided to change things up a little, so in my reviews, instead of just having a blurb on my opinion of the book, I divided my views into four parts:

  • Why I picked the novel– pretty self-explanatory.
  • The story– whatever unique aspects I loved or other interesting stuff.
  • Characters– who was memorable, who was meh.
  • Relatability factor– how much I could relate to the characters/setting. I guess it just shows how good of an experience it was for me.

New month, new goals. And this month’s goal for me is to have monologues every other day. Yep, it’s going to be tough, but I’m going to try my best at this. Of course, it’d be real nice if my monologues turned into dialogues. Sigh. Just wishful thinking…?
