What I Read in March

I read 10 books in March, bringing my total for the year up to 33, about 1/3 of my goal of 100 books for the year.

traveling-with-ghosts-9781501107795

Traveling with Ghosts, by Shannon Leone Fowler. (Read to review.) This was sad, but a good read. Definitely made me want to travel.

the bone witch

The Bone Witch, by Rin Chupeco. (Read to review.) Nice fantasy read, and I’d be interesting in seeing more of the series.

if not for you

If Not for You, by Debbie Macomber. (Read to review.) I do love this author’s books, and this book is part of a linked standalone series I like. A pleasant, quick read.

YONC

Year of No Clutter, by Eve. O Schaub. (Read to review.) A funny book dealing with a not-so-funny subject. The author’s voice is fantastic.

the rules do not apply

The Rules do not Apply, by Ariel Levy. (Read to review.) I found this one just “meh,” as the author seemed to criticize everyone around her, and ignore her own shortcomings.

the orphan's tale

The Orphan’s Tale, by Pam Jenoff. (Read to review.) A dark read, but a good one, dealing with the Holocaust and circus life.

A Long Way Gone, by Ishmael Beah. (Cultural book.) This is a memoir about a boy soldier’s life in Sierra Leone. Not for the faint-of-heart.

quests of kings

Quests of the Kings, by Robert Evert. (Read to review.) Another “meh” book. I found the main character to be a major pain, but to act like everyone else was the pain. Also pretty distant.

The Age of Innocence, by Edith Wharton. (Classic book.) I enjoyed this, but I know by now that Wharton’s characters don’t ever get happily-ever-afters. Not that there should be one in an affair.

Not a Fan, by Kyle Idleman. (Spiritual book.) I love Idleman’s voice. He says hard things, but his voice makes it so much easier to hear.
