March 2018 Reading Roundup

At the beginning of this year, I wrote a post talking about how I wanted to start doing monthly “reading roundups.” Three months into the year, this has become a reality.

March wasn’t my best reading month. As I talked about on my personal blog, I was in California for a week. I’ve also been trying to cut down on reading to make time for other things.

Without further ado, let’s dive into my March Reading Roundup!

What did I read in March?

Read: 10 books

Classics: 3 (The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald, No Promises in the Wind by Irene Hunt, Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry by Mildred D. Taylor)

This was a great month for ARCs (I read 4 – The Weaver’s Daughter, Winning Miss Winthrop, The Innkeeper’s Daughter, and Bound).

I also finally read The Great Gatsby! It was pretty awesome, but also … pointless. I can understand why it’s a classic, but on the other hand, it’s so futile. But then, what word better describes that era – the root of it, at least? A feeling of futility. I think there’s more to that book that I got in one read-through.

If you read my review of Bound, you know that I was surprised as to how much I liked it. It was truly God-inspired in many ways! Such a short book – but such an impactful message!

I have yet to review it, but Alicia G. Ruggieri’s series A Time of Grace was excellent! I finished the last book, A Love to Come Home To, in March … and just wow. Definitely some of my favorites now! (And the cover was soooo pwetty!)
