My Reading List

March Books Read

  1. Sister a novel by Rosamund Lupton-A powerful story about the love between two sisters.  This book had me from the first chapter.  I needed to finish it, it is full of suspense, love and just all those things that make a good read.  I was shocked at the ending and hope there is a part 2. I hope it doesn’t end the way I think it did.  That’s how I know a book is good, I want to keep reading this book!!
  2. We were liars by E. Lockhart-this book was kind of predictable.  Even still I did enjoy reading it.  I think the author wants you to be able to predict the ending, kind of like everyone knows except for the main character, Cadence.  Which I think is pretty powerful writing.  Like you know, but you still want to see how Cadence takes the news when she finds out.  I was not disappointed by this book.
  3. Boundaries in Dating by Dr. Cloud and Dr. Townsend-I read this book for a second time, because it really is full of so much information and I learned so much the first time I read it.  I found myself adding to my notes and highlights, because I am in a different season of my life now, so different things spoke to me.  I will continue to recommend this book!!!
  4. The Covenant (Abram’s Daughters Book #1) by Beverly Lewis- I am looking for book 2.  This book is from the perspective of 4 sisters who are growing up under the Plain folk laws.  I loved how simple and beautiful this book was.  I will be reading the entire series!!
  5. Men we Reaped a Memoir by Jesmyn Ward-I did not complete this book.  The beginning started off so morbid that I couldn’t get past the second chapter.  This was my second attempt to read this book, so I will be donating it.
  6. Lillian Boxfish Takes a Walk by Kathleen Rooney-I did not complete this book.  It dragged on talking about an elderly lady spending New Year’s Eve alone, etc.  I didn’t make it past the first few chapters.  I will also be donating this book.

I read 4 books during the month of March.  I haven’t met my 5 books a month goal at all this year.  That is completely ok with me though.  I think I put so much pressure on myself to just read, that I forgot to just breath! I have to take time to let my brain just rest.  I have incorporated mindful techniques during my daily regiments so I won’t be reading as much as I originally planned.  I don’t think I will meet my goal of 60 books by end of year.  Which I am totally ok with.  I would much rather take small steps in my reading goal and enjoy my reading time, compared to making reading a chore to complete.  I will continue to post reviews on the books that I read.  I may or may not do a monthly recap in the months to follow.  I have also switched my focus from reading the books on my book shelf to just purging the books I know I will never read.
