A fourth of the year has passed us by which means if I’m to stay on track with my reading goal I need to be at 25 books finished. It was close this month sneaking in a ninth book to stay on track, but I managed it. This month featured a new author or two, making progress on a series, and reading my favorite author’s newest book.
The books I read in March 2014:
- Meta by Tom Reynolds
- The Stormlight Archive: Words of Radiance by Brandon Sanderson
- World of Warcraft: Wolfheart by Richard A. Knaak
- Hollow World by Michael J. Sullivan
- Half Way Home by Hugh Howey
- Thrall: Twilight of the Aspects by Christie Golden
- Warhorse by Timothy Zahn
- The Seafort Saga: Fisherman’s Hope by David Feintuch
- The Seafort Saga: Voices of Hope by David Feintuch
Out of that list my favorites were Words of Radiance and Half Way Home. I was waiting nearly four years for the Brandon Sanderson book and it was fantastic. Half Way Home was a bit of a surprise. I was expecting it to be good because I like Hugh Howey as an author, but it ended up being my favorite book of his I’ve read to date. I was also very impressed by Michael J. Sullivan’s Hollow World, which he sent me an advance copy of in return for a review. I had a hard time putting it down after I got started.
The only book from March that really didn’t do much for me was Wolfheart by Richard A. Knaak. I just didn’t connect with it very well, but that’s okay, if I only have one book out of every eight or nine that I don’t connect with perfectly I think I’m doing pretty well. I also made it through books four and five of the Seafort Saga, which should allow me to finish up the series in April with little trouble.
Speaking of April, I’m looking to get the Seafort Saga finished by reading the last two books. I’m also going to read the two newest David Dalglish books I’ve been waiting for and I’m also going to drive through a few more random novels on my Kindle in my continuing quest to clean it out entirely.
