2016 Reading Challenge - Book Scrabble - March

I failed for March!  I read one book.  Yes... one.  The reason is because I have an injured shoulder that I mentioned on my other blog (link).  Basically the short story is it's a slipped disc and intermittent pinched nerve that causes a lot of pain and muscle spasms and was the reason I had to quit my job and find a new one.  I have been taking muscle relaxers at night for the muscle spasms and they make me go to sleep pretty much as soon as my head hits the pillow (how novel!  I'm so not used to that!).  So I haven't been doing much reading at all.  So here is my one book for March...

I waited way too long to write this, so I don't exactly remember all the details, but my overall impression is that I liked the book although parts of it were extremely boring.  It was an interesting idea with interesting characters, but maybe needed some plot work... I'm no expert though, so this is just my opinion.  I enjoyed it though and if you like fantasty/romance you'll probably like this (if you can stick through boring parts and sort of obvious plot lines).

So far I'm not doing any better for April, but I'll work on it.  I actually really like the book I'm reading right now, I just can't read much at night because of the muscle relaxers.  I need to find more time during the day but I've been so busy with job stuff, doctors, chiros, physical therapists, etc.  Not to mention stressing over how to pay for all of it!  Fingers crossed things settle down soon.

P.S.  The letter I is only a one pointer so I failed on the Scrabble aspect this month too lol... If I'm only going to read one book for the whole month it really needs to be a ten pointer! ;)
