March's Reading Challenge Review

March has been another great book month. I'm still staying ahead of my set book quota (seven books). I read nine this month. Also, the reading challenges are going better than expected. I completed three challenges and am close to finishing four more.

I finished Suzanne Collins' Hunger Game series. I think the second one might have been my favourite but they were all good and worth reading. I'm glad I read them before seeing the movie (which I haven't seen yet). Another great YA fiction was City of Bones, I liked the twists.

One of my favourite reads was Becoming the Answer to Our Prayers –Shane Claiborne & Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove. I picked it up Saturday at Jesus to the Nations missions conferences and had it finished by Sunday night. I will be re-reading it later this month.
