With only two books that were read in the month, it's easy to pick the favourite and least favourite of the month. Shannon wins for favourite - although I prefer the author's other works, this one is still a good book. Galveston wins for least favourite - which was a book that didn't work for me at all. Not what I expected.
1) Galveston - Paul Quarrington - 3.5/10
2) Shannon - Frank Delaney - 7.75/10
Since I only read two books this month I didn't make too much progress on my challenges. Although, it does look like I'll finish the War Through the Generations Challenge this year. I'm still happy with my progress and should be able to finish all my challenges and personal goals this year, as long as I don't have a month like this. I believe there is another reading challenge coming up, so that should help.

The only new place I went to this month was a fictional Caribbean island. I also travelled to Ireland.
Books that Followed Me Home
Even with the move, 11 books still followed me home! Opps! I bought 5 of the leatherbound books Barns and Nobles has. And luckily for me Chapters/Indgio has started selling them, so all but the fairy tale books came locally. I hope to see more of the books come too!
The Complete Fairy Tales of Hans Christian Anderson (Leatherbound)
Grimm Fairy Tales (Leatherbound)
Jane Eyre - Charlotte Bronte (Leatherbound)
Wuthering Heights - Emily Bronte (Leatherbound)
Alice's Adventures in Wounderland and Other Stories - Lewis Carroll (Leatherbound)
The Bishops Man - Linden Macintyre
Under the Hawthorne Tree - Ai Mi
Requiem for a Dream - Hubert Shelby, Jr. (EBook)
The Penguin Book of Irish Short Stories
The Penguin Book of Scottish Short Stories

And that was my march. Happy Reading!
