March Twitterature – Book Roundup in Short Form

It’s the middle of March, so it has become time for yet another Twitterature by Modern Mrs Darcy Roundup (you can see the ones for February and January here).

The past month has been good for reading, I have managed to finish 7 books, which is a lot even for me. I have been travelling for work for the past 1.5 weeks, covering the Oracle Nordic Apps Days in Helsinki, Copenhagen and Oslo. It was a lot of fun, but it was also a lot of travelling – the upside of that being, that it gave me a lot of time to read.

Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell: Loved the premise of it, but it was really hard to get into the book and I didn’t really care about the characters.

On the Road by Jack Kerouac: I wanted to love it, but I can’t care for books that glorify cheating, domestic abuse and the random destruction of property. (Read my full review)

The Ultimate Guide: How to Use Twitter for Social Selling: Pretty much does what the title says, introduces you how to use Twitter as a sales tool – especially for Business to Business.

Safe Haven by Nicholas Sparks: Ok for chic lit. I dislike being “told” rather than “shown” and the ending was completely ridiculous.

You Are a Writer (So Start Acting Like One) by Jeff Goins: Great introduction to the nuts and bolts of writing, especially in terms of the mindset you need to have.

The S&M Feminist: Best Of Clarisse Thorn: Great compilations of articles and essays concerning S&M, feminism, sex-positivism, gender, relationships etc. Highly recommended. (Read the full review)

The History of Love by Nicole Krauss: Really loved this book, the writing style is incredibly beautiful, as is the story line – and no, it is not a chick lit. (Read the full review).

What have you been reading this month? As always, feel free to follow and connect with me on Goodreads.

  1. I’ve heard several raves about Safe Haven recently, which I haven’t read but was considering. Thanks for your review. I think it’s going to save me a few hours 🙂

  2. Ah yes, Kerouac, the writer you want to love, but end up feeling so sorry for. Good on you for trying, though!! I read Jeff’s book a few months ago and loved it. Tried The History of Love once but couldn’t get through it. Going to need to try it again.

    • Yeah, I wanted to like Kerouac, but I just couldn’t get there.

      The History of Love is definitely worth another try!
