march

i finished three books in march. but i also read several trashy magazines, so, it wasn't a complete wash.

first) shopaholic and baby by sophie kinsella. i've been waiting for this for over a year and it did not disappoint. becky's shenanigans were hilarious as usual and the writing was quick and snappy. very satisfying.

second) max acevedo writes vampire mysteries, effectively combining two genres i use to love more but now read as guilty pleasure. i read x-rated bloodsuckers and enjoyed it a lot, though probably not as much as his first novel. the mystery was completely impossible to figure out before the reveal, which was a little bit of a "big plot dump" at the end. but there were a lot of gunfights and hi-speed chases, and also some werewolves. so. fun, anyway.

third) after helpwess talked about this series i went to the library and picked up angus thongs and full-frontal snogging by louise rennison. i absolutely love this series! it's funny and smart, and not dumbed down for the intended ya audience. it's also not needlessly trashy like someother teen fiction i've browsed before. i'm very excited for the rest of them.

total for the year is up to 9. hopefully i can step it up over the summer.
