What I Read in March 2016

I managed to read four books in March! I'm actually surprised I got through that many.

Maisie Dobbs by Jacqueline Winspear
I read this title for a library adult reading challenge. I needed a mystery title and struggled finding something in that category. Unfortunately, it didn't end up being much of a mystery and wasn't a story I was excited to keep reading. However, I did appreciate the strong female character! I finished it, despite not loving Maisie Dobbs.

Brave Enough Cheryl Strayed
This is a compilation of quotes and so many of the messages resonated with me right now. I like Strayed's style and figured I would enjoy this book. It's a quick read & if you're looking for some inspirational quotes, this should do the trick.

Goodnight June by Sarah Jio
I don't read a lot of fiction, but when I need something light and not so serious, I turn to Sarah Jio. I really enjoyed this book and maybe it's because the main character was so much like me, especially in the beginning of the story. I felt like Sarah had been following me or something. The story was pretty predictable, but I still liked it. I'd recommend any of Jio's titles if you're looking for a more light read.

When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi
This book keeps showing up everywhere, so I am sure you have seen the cover or heard about Paul's story. I knew this one was going to be a tearjerker and it was, especially at the end. I truly appreciate my life, struggles and all, but I really did after reading this true story. I love learning more about the medical field and it also fulfilled that nerdy side of me. Kate from A Small Things Blog actually wrote a wonderful review of it last week and I thought I'd simply share her link here instead of trying to sum up my thoughts.

Hope I can get through this many books in April! I'm not off to a great start this month though and am looking for recommendations.

  1. Probably my favorite book from the past year in book club was All the Light We Cannot See. For something lighter, but still interesting, we just read My Salinger Year. I'd like to read more too!
