A Month in Review - March '09

March was definitely a great month of reading! I can't remember the last time I read so many wonderful books. And, in spite of the low rating for Revolutionary Road, my book club had one of our best discussions ever, so that made it worthwhile.

Click on the titles to read my reviews.

The Penderwicks by Jeanne Birdsall (3/5)

Revolutionary Road by Richard Yates (2/5)

The School of Essential Ingredients by Erica Bauermeister (5/5)

Still Alice by Lisa Genova (5/5)

The Help by Kathryn Stockett (5/5)

The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton (DNF)

Favorite of the month: Tied between The School of Essential Ingredients by Erica Bauermeister, Still Alice by Lisa Genova and The Help by Kathryn Stockett.

  1. Wow, three 5's in one month. That would be a great month for me.

  2. Framed - It was a GREAT month for me. Unfortunately, I think I've hit a slump. :(
