Book of the Month Giveaway:

March’s Book of the Month is Rainbow Rowell’s absolutely beautiful Eleanor & Park. As you can tell, it earned one of my very rare five star ratings, because, on finishing and writing up my review, I could come up with not a single point of criticism, not even a minor one. I am so excited to see YA novels branching out like this. Oh, also, the hipster part of me wants everyone to know that I reviewed it before it received the John Green seal of approval. Just saying.

  1. This is me bowing to the amount of books you’ve read. I don’t think I’ve even read 30 books yet this YEAR. LOL. Go you!

  2. Amy says:

    Wow!! That’s a lot of books!! You are flying through books. I wish I read faster lol!!

  3. Bonnie R says:

    30?? Wow. You’re my hero. I need to read faster.
    Aww.. you read the Cats of Tanglewood Forest too. I thought that was super cute. 5 stars for Eleanor & Park though is awesome, I’ve been hearing tons of great things about this one. 🙂

  4. You a reviewing ninja Christina, you are just a ninja of all sorts I guess haha. I really want to get my hands on Eleanor & Park, I think I will really liked that one!

  5. KM says:

    Only one 1-star book? That’s a good month! You seemed to like a lot of the books you read in March. Hooray!! 😀

    • Christina says:

      I don’t give out the really low ratings very often. 2 star means it’s just not for me, but I think others will like it. 1.5 is getting skeptical. 1 is where I’m pretty much telling people not to read the book. .5 is BURN IT NOW. lol.

  6. Kelly says:

    30 books in March alone?! I doubt if I’ve read 30 books this year! I’m happy if I get 1-2 a week lol

    Also, great to see so many positive reviews! Though I’m disappointed by all the negative reviews I’m seeing for Unremembered; I had had high hopes for that one 🙁

    • Christina says:

      Well, technically, I didn’t read all of these in March. They’re the reviews I posted in March.

      Unremembered I mostly felt bad for. It’s just not good. It tries, but…no.

  7. I have seen a lot of book bloggers review this book and raved about it. My curiosity is peaked!
