Quick Lit . March 2017

Ah, books. I promise, I’ll start writing about other topics soon (like my family, my new interest in sewing, or my upcoming trip to England!!!). But today is a Quick Lit link-up with Modern Mrs. Darcy.

Here is a look at what I’m reading in March…

This Is The Story of a Happy Marriage by Ann Patchett

I’m reading this collection of essays slowly. After reading Commonwealth last month, I decided I am going to become an Ann Patchett complete-ist and read all of her work. This came up first at the library. A bit different from what I’m used to, but still intriguing. There are also ties to Commonwealth and her upbringing, which I love!

Enchanted Islands by Allison Amend

I loved this book! This was a Book of the Month Club pick from last year (like a year ago) but it finally felt like the right time to read it. If you like stories about friendship, history, and adventure this novel is perfect. It’s just over 300 pages, so a quick read, and I couldn’t put it down.

Here I Am by Jonathan Foer

Sigh. I have such mixed feelings on this. Overall, I liked the story about the Bloch family and their family dynamics. But…it was too long. I listened to the audiobook (Ari Fliankos narrated and he is amazing) but I found myself wanting it to end sooner. So, mixed feelings on this one.

Caraval by Stephanie Garber

I feel like you had to be living under a rock if you haven’t seen the cover of this book on Instagram!! This is a debut, YA novel which typically isn’t something I would rush to get. But the audiobook came in at the library so I figured I would check it out. I’m about 1/3 of the way through and am intrigued. I’m being reminded why I don’t always love YA books (angsty teens) but the Caraval game is definitely intriguing. I’m looking forward to how this plays out!

This is a quick look at the books I’m reading (and listening to!) lately. I’ve also finished Pines by Blake Crouch and am finishing up Stranger in the Woods and can’t wait to share my thoughts with you later this month!

What are you reading lately?
