I am really proud of my March reads list! I definitely read out of my comfort zone this month!
The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up
The hype surrounding this book was intriguing, but I have to admit, I was a little disappointed. The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo was not at all life-changing. I did like her light and slightly humorous writing style and I did find some of her ideas helpful, but I wouldn’t say it was the best “minimalist” viewpoint. While her goals are definitely achievable, I really don’t think it’s practical for everyone.
The Husband’s Secret
I’m addicted to Liane Moriarty’s books! The Husband’s Secret was a thrilling read full of real-life emotion and heartache. If you’re looking for an emotional page-turner, then this is definitely for you! I love that her books are suspenseful and deep, but not super dark. I think Truly, Madly, Guilty will be my next Moriarty read!
War Storm broke my heart. It ended the Red Queen series by Victoria Aveyard, and it ended the struggle for freedom that began in the first book. The ending left me wanting more and yet happy at the same time. This author is truly a genius and deserves all of the awards!
I’m so glad Aveyard decided to write another book as an addition to the Red Queen series. Broken Throne gives more details and some historical background into the characters and plot of the series. I think I will be posting an in-depth review of the complete series soon, so stay tuned for that post coming in April!
The Jetsetters by Amanda Eyre Ward was the March pick for ReesesBookClub; It gave me spring break and wanderlust vibes! I wrote an entire blog post dedicated to The Jetsetters Review, so definitely check that out for more details!
This cute graphic novel by Shannon Hale, LeUyen Pham, and Jane Poole is definitely not my usual go-to reading material, but I actually really enjoyed it! Real Friends is a perfect little book to read while you drink a hot tea or coffee. When you have a spare minute or two during the day, you can easily start and stop this book without feeling like you need to finish it. I probably won’t read many graphic novels in my lifetime, but it was cute and pushed me out of my comfort zone a little!
My Not So Perfect Life
Sophie Kinsella did it again with her book, My Not So Perfect Life. Her writing style is so easy and light, but her stories and characters still have depth and meaning. I loved Katie’s character; I can definitely relate to her wanting a fabulous “Insta-worthy” life while also struggling with her own identity. For those who love a good rom-com, you’ll definitely fall in love with this book!
