Author Marathoning Wrap Up...

Ok so my author marathoning month didn't go as well as I'd hoped, best laid plans and all that... The thing is though, I really really REALLY want to read all of the books that I listed at the beginning of March, so I've decided to extend my author marathon month until the end of April. As you know I am on a book buying ban until Easter and that is actually going really really well. I've used my library to get myself a an audiobook for the car and I still have library books out to read as part of my author marathons so I'm finding it really easy not to buy any books. There are a few books out on 10th April which I need to read and review, but apart from that, I really will try and stick to the authors I want to marathon.

In march I actually ended up marathoning an author I hadn't planned to, and you can see th results of that marathon later on this week actually. I read the finding sky series by Joss Stirling, all three books plus the novella... Such fun! 

Although I didn't read all the Rebecca chance novels I wanted to read, I did read her latest novel which I also reviewed for you and that was Bad Brides. I still may go back to the other books I've have of hers because I do want to read them all! 

I read two books by Jane Costello but still have the only book of hers I haven't read, Nearlyweds to read. I know this will be a quick and easy read because I absolutely love her books so I may just add that on to my April reads meaning that ill have read three works by Jane by the end of the marathoning period! The books I read by her were, the Mini Break and The Time of Our lives, both of which I reviewed for you as well! 

I got round to reading one of the Malorie Blackmans that I own, but not both of them. I read Noughts and Crosses in the Month of March and my review of that will be up next week! 

I also read 2 episodes of The Arcad which, I suppose, could count as marathoning as well...

The other books I read this month were Take Mum Out by Fiona Gibson, which I reviewed...

The Little Beach Street Bakery by Jenny Colgane, which I also reviewed...

And Finding Colin Firth by Mia March, again I reviewed this for you guys too...

I am currently reading The Accident by CL Taylor and listening to A Hundred Pieces of Me by Lucy Dillon (loving both and over halfway through both as well!)

I will definitely try and read my Jennifer E Smitth collection next month which now has The Geography of You and Me added to it. I also want to read some more of my Rebecca Chance collection. I would love to read the Keris Stainton books I showed you and the David Levithan books as well. Here's hoping I might get round to some of them. 

You can also expect reviews of The Accident by CL Taylor and A Hundred Pieces of Me by Lucy Dillon.

Let me know if there's anything in particular you'd like me to read and review next and I'll try and prioritise that/those books for you! 

Happy reading!
