March Reading



I had an excellent month of reading, both with regard to quantity and quality. I read four books and listened to four others and each and every one was exceptionally good. I discovered a new mystery series, which I am eager to continue reading, and I also read my first 5 star book for the year. Can you guess which one it is? (No fair looking at Goodreads!) I'm terribly behind with my reviews, so bear with me. I'm going to try to get all of these posted before the end of the month. 

Have you read any of these gems? 

The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion

The Crossing Places by Elly Griffiths

The Bear by Claire Cameron

Heads in Beds by Jacob Tomsky

The Janus Stone by Elly Griffiths

The Next Time You See Me by Holly Goddard Jones

Tiny Beautiful Things: Advice on Love and Live From Dear Sugar by Cheryl Strayed

Wonder by R. J. Palacio

    1. April is starting out well, Diane. Just need to make more time for the books and less computer time.

      Thanks for your comment about the tulips. It's an older photograph, but one I love. Our tulips are up, but haven't bloomed yet. The daffodils are, though!

  3. You did have a great reading month. I have The Rosie Project downloaded to my Kindle and I've read Wonder (loved it). The rest of your reads are new to me!

    1. Kay, the picture of the tulips is from a few years ago. I can't wait for them to start blooming, although my daffodils are quite cheery right now. I really need to remember to plant more tulips next fall. Think I can remember before it's too cold? ;)

  6. Wow, March WAS a great month for you. I had my first 5 star read (at last), too. The tulips are gorgeous!

    1. JoAnn, I know! March was really amazing, as far as reading good books. April isn't starting off too shabby, either. I love my tulips, but wish they lasted longer. My daffodils seem to hang on much longer than the tulips.

    1. So far, April is just as wonderful, Iliana. I plan to head out on the porch in a few minutes and continue with my current book (The Precious One by Marisa de los Santos). Then I'll head out for a walk and listen to A Canticle for Leibowitz. Hope you're having a good weekend!
