Looking Back : March 2012

I read six books this March:
1. Little Dorrit by Charles Dickens
2. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
3. The Sisters Brothers by Patrick DeWitt
4. Confessions of a Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella
5. The Gates by John Connolly
6. You Deserve Nothing by Alexander Maksik

My favourite book of March was a difficult one to choose, but if I had to pick I would go for The Sisters Brothers by Patrick DeWitt. Mainly because it's a book I wouldn't normally pick up, but I did because it was one of the books that was featured in the TV book club on Channel 4 (or More 4?), and I'm glad I did because it blew me away. Another book included in the TV book club was You Deserve Nothing which I also really loved. I had been avoiding The Night Circus a bit because I was scared it wasn't going to live up to the hype but I finally picked it up in March and I was so happy that I finally did because it was amazing and magical! Due to it being Charles Dickens bicenary in February I decided to pick up one of his works and I finally finished it in March. That work being Little Dorrit and I really savoured the writing. The next book read in March was Confessions of a Shopaholic which I thought was hilarious like the film. The final book was The Gates by John Connolly which was alright. I think I would have enjoyed it more if I was a kid but it was still a fun unique read.

Oh I wanted to read The Night Circus! I'm a little scared of it too because I heard all the hype AND I heard it's huge! Glad you enjoyed it!
