Monthly Review – March 2014

Posted March 31, 2014 by Michael @ Knowledge Lost in Monthly Reading / 0 Comments


As March comes to a close it is time to look at our reading journey for the month again. This month we took a look at Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides, a fascinating look into Greek heritage and intersexuality. I hope everyone has had a wonderful month of reading and had time to fit this award-winning novel into their busy schedule. Still a lot of action happening with the reading challenge as well; looks like two hundred books been added this month. For those who don’t know about the reading challenge, there is still time to join in the fun, so check out my post here.

A reminder that next month’s book will be The Magician by Levi Grossman for our fantasy theme. I haven’t read this novel before but I’ve heard good things. Marketed as Harry Potter for adults, which makes me a little worried. I’ve not read Harry Potter before but always cautious when a book is marketed to be the next of anything.

Highlights for my month’s reading included Middlesex of course but also By Blood We Live by Glen Duncan, and Alif the Unseen by G. Wilson Willow. The biggest highlight was Truman Capote’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s, an exciting novella that surpassed all my expectations; heaps better than the movie. What have you been reading this month and what were the highlights?
