Monthly Wrap-Up: March 2017

March marks my first full month of blogging here at Spotlight on Stories, so what better way to finish off the month than with a wrap-up post?! It was a pretty good month for me, with seven books read.

Book of the Month:
A Conjuring of Light by V.E. Schwab – The eagerly anticipated final part of her Shades of Magic trilogy lived up to the hype and left me with a bit of a book hangover!

Runner-Up: The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet by Becky Chambers – A fabulously original, almost cosy sci-fi novel with diversity, a lovable cast of characters, and an emphasis on found family.

Least Favourite: Everfair by Nisi Shawl – Fabulously inventive concept but the execution never lived up to the premise.

Seen on Stage:
Pinocchio (ballet) by the National Ballet of Canada – Review
Of Human Bondage (play) at Soulpepper – Review
Genus & The Concert (ballet) by the National Ballet of Canada
