March 2021 Reading Wrap Up
How was your March reading?
March was a great fourteen-book reading month. Because I read several Middle-Grade books for Middle-Grade March, I’m dividing my list between adult and middle grade.
My favorite fiction read of the month is Radar Girls by Sara Ackerman closely followed by The Women of Chateau Lafayette by Stephanie Dray, and my favorite nonfiction was Open by Andre Agassi. My favorite middle-grade read was Ghost by Jason Reynolds.
Did we read any of the same books?

Five Middle Grade Reads
A series of four (that follows a track team and their coach) by Jason Reynolds: Ghost (5 Stars) (my favorite of the four); Sunny (5 Stars); Patina (4 Stars) Lu (4 Stars).
Although I listed these in order of my favorites, the four Reynold’s books should be read in order because there’s a small cliffhanger at the end of each. African American. None reviewed.
3 Stars. Native American. Not reviewed.
