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.
Without further ado, let’s dive into my March Reading Roundup!
What did I read in March?
Read: 10 books
Nonfiction: ~2 (Escape from Warsaw – based on a true story – and Economics in 1 Lesson)
Contemporary: Bound by Victoria Lynn
Favorite Book of the Month: A Love to Come Home To
Least Favorite Book of the Month: Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry
Most Anticipated: The Great Gatsby
Least Anticipated: Economics in 1 Lesson (school book, haha … not sure why I even added it to Goodreads, but I did, so … yep)
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!)
What did you read this month? What were your favorite books? Least favorite books? Have you read any of these … and what did you think of them?
