March Reading Wrap Up

 


April already?! March flew by in a haze of I didn’t really do anything, but it seemed kind of busy. I read 11 books for the month. 


⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

🎧The Lager Queen of Minnesota- charming, heartfelt & delightful.


🎧 Thank You for Listening- Julia Whelan is my audiobook queen & can do no wrong. 


⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

🎧The Golden Spoon-cozy mystery set in the world of reality tv competitions. A fun read! 


🎧The Lost English Girl-WWII historical fic & family drama. Lots of food for thought in this one including religion, racism, & women’s rights. Really enjoyed it. 


🎧 Wolf Trap- an entertaining action thriller with lots of moving parts. Edge of your seat read! 


🎧Hang the Moon-historical fic set in the rural south during prohibition. Lots of family drama & girl power! Main character Sallie Kincaid is a definite girl boss. I thoroughly enjoyed this one. 


📖The House Party- thought this was YA but was really more adult even though it revolves around kids who threw a rager of a keg party. 


📖The Star-Crossed Sisters of Tuscany- generational family drama with a family curse & tons of secrets. Loved the Italian settings and upbeat Aunt Poppy. My whole book club enjoyed it. 


⭐️⭐️⭐️

📖The Island of Missing Trees-buddy read with two booksta pals. I didn’t throw this book across the room like one of them confessed to doing. This book had some good things going on but just too many messy parts got in the way. 


📖Better Off Dead- I’m a long-time Jack Reacher fan girl, but Lee Child seriously needs to ditch his brother as cowriter. Either that or just let Reacher finally settle down in a crime-free place with a great diner that has strong coffee and delicious pie. 


⭐️⭐️

Stay Awake-I can’t believe I actually made it through this whole book. The plot relied on way too may coincidences to move it along. Way too much repetition got boring. S.J. Watson’s Before I Go to Sleep is a better choice than this one for a story about a main character with memory loss. 


Thank you Simon & Schuster Audio for the gifted copies of The Golden Spoon, The Lost English Girl, Wolf Trap & Hang the Moon!
