Murder by Death

I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.

March: In like a lion, out like a lamb.

To say I've been in a reading slump the last two weeks would be a bit of an understatement.  I've started no fewer than 4 books, only to put them down again and find something else to do.  Like dust, or load the dishwasher.  I despise doing both, so we're talking serious slumpage.  I blame it all on The Last Days of Summer - a book so good it temporarily ruined me for all other books, and was my favorite read of the month.

 

Still, overall, I read 13 books (17 counting re-reads) this month.  

 

2 of them were non-fiction so I'm still on track with that personal challenge.

    

 

5 of them ticked off prompts on the 2015 PopSugar Challenge:

A Book with more than 500 pages:  The Candy Bombers

A Book more than 100 years old: The Secret Garden

A Book based entirely on its cover: The Hiss-story of Magic

A Book with a colour in the title: Vision in Silver

A Book with a love triangle: Devil in the Deadline

        

 

I decided to try to beat my reading slump back with an immersive re-read of one of my favorite UF guilty-pleasures:  The Paranormal Scene Investigations series.  I'd like to say they helped me meet my re-read goal, but since I've previously reviewed them all, they don't count.  I do think they got me out of my slump though.
