So that’s another 36 books that I need to try to finish in March. That’s a lot of books, so there is no way I’ll be able to finish all of them, but I’ll try to get through as many as I can. I didn’t do that well last month, so I’ll try to do better this month.

I’ll be doing this each month, I’ll keep a monthly tally. And I’ll summarize each previous month. So that each month we can figure out how I did after last month’s revisit and keep track of how many books I have to read

I’m looking forward to reading all of these books! Have you read any of these books and if so, which was your favourite? Thoughts? Any of these on your TBR? Which ones do you recommend I read first? Let me know in the comments.

Let me know what you all thought of each of these books if you read them or if you want to read them!
