A Month In Books - March 2019

Welcome to March's Month In Books roundup! I will link this post up with Nicole's Monthly Wrap-Up Round-Up at Feed Your Fiction Addiction.

I read 17 books this month including both of my Books From The Backlog choices: Tortilla Flat and Minaret. I also read a collection of Hong Kong essays, a Malaysian fantasy, Nigerian noir crime, a Syrian war memoir, and a Chinese epic which turned out to be the longest book I think I've ever read!

Regular blog series:
In March I blogged Bookish Bingo and State of the ARC updates as well as a Cover Characteristics collection themed Looking Out To Sea. WorldReads featured books from Kenya and I will be 'visiting' Colombia for April's WorldReads on the 5th.


Now, on with this Reading Roundup!

Spotlights









My Book Of The Month could have been the brilliant My Sister, The Serial Killer by Oyinkan Braithwaite, but then I read The Old Drift by Namwali Serpell which just blew my mind!


I hope you have found some books to tempt you in this selection! You can keep up with my daily book posts on Literary Flits and don't forget all the Giveaways are listed in my Giveaway Linkup.

  7. I don't read much Asian literature. I'm not sure why not. I'll have to take a closer look at some of your books to see if one catches my fancy. Check out my March Wrap up at Girl Who Reads
