|Month in Review For March 2017: Back Into Books Again|
I read more books in March than I managed in February (which was all of 2) and also more posts, so I think I'm recovering a bit of my previous energy for bookish things. I blame it on less inclement weather and also, my internet is working well now.

Favorite of the Month: Tie between Windhaven by GRRM and Lisa Tuttle and The Long Dark Tea-time of the Soul by Douglas Adams- the latter was hilarious and random in the way I needed it to be, and the first had me dreaming of having my own wings.
Least Favorite of the Month: Definitely The Earl's Defiant Wallflower (The Dukes of War #2) by Erica Ridley, which had me liking the beginning and furious at the glib ending.
Most Interesting of the Month (or Book I Learned the Most From): China Dolls by Lisa See- she has a knack for immersing the reader in history in a way they don't often think about.

Planning to Read in April:
I also read Way Station by Clifford D. Simak- it was really good but not like I expected it to be. I hope to write a review for it soon, but we'll see. For vintage sci-fi it was far ahead of its time, but there were some things I did find problematic.
