Sunday Salon: March's Accomplishments, April's Goals

March was one of the duller reading months I've had recently. I blamed it on review obligations but that's not really fair, since I'd read the same books anyway! For April, I'd like to focus on 2012 releases but I'm sure I won't stick to that 100%. It seems like every time I say I'm going to stick to a particular theme I end up going off course almost immediately! One thing I miss reading is nonfiction. So far this year I've read fiction almost exclusively. I still haven't read Steve Jobs, or Vera, or Travels in Siberia, or Roger Ebert's autobiography. I need to!

Today I'm finishing up the Hunger Games trilogy- I have about three chapters of Mockingjay and then I'll be able to write about the series sometime soon. I had a blast reading the hilarious Goodbye Kiss earlier this week; if you like noirs and crime fiction and you're not reading Massimo Carlotto, you really need to. I'll have a full review this week. It's the first one of his books I'd call funny but it really is.

Here's a question for you. What's the one 2012 release you think I have to read?

I'm fighting back a head cold and decorating the house for Easter today, as well as getting passport photos for our fall trip to Italy. What are you up to today? I hope you have a great Sunday. More Sunday Salon here.
