what i read: march 2014 / part 2 / hello, rigby!

since i read a few more books than normal last month, i’d figure i shouldn’t overwhelm you with all of them at once. here’s part two of what i read last month, just in case you’re like me and like picking up a few new books (or, 12) every month.

What I’m currently reading:

Divergent by Veronica Roth Book Review
Divergent by Veronica Roth
Yep, still reading this.

What I read in March:

When Mountains Move by Julie Cantrell Book Review

When Mountains Move by Julie Cantrell / ★★★★ / Okay, I am not one to read Christian Fiction, but this was actually really good. I can’t get behind a preachy book, and this was not one of them. The story was really engaging, there were quite a few plot twists, and the ending was a cliffhanger, almost literally. Not only that, but characters were all really well written and you find yourself getting lost in their troubles, strengths, weaknesses, and turmoil. Definitely would like to see more from this author.

Mastering the Art of French Eating by Ann Mah Book Review

Mastering the Art of French Eating by Ann Mah / ★★★★ / I would highly recommend NOT reading this book unless you want to be hungry while reading it. Seriously, the food descriptions were amazing. I’ve never wanted to go to and eat around France more than when I finished this! Interesting travel and life anecdotes were interspersed with culinary knowledge, recipes, and foodie escapades. Totally jealous of Ann Mah’s french food adventures!

Andrew's Brain by E.L. Doctorow Book Review

Andrew’s Brain by E.L. Doctorow  / ★★ / This is a short read but my god it was awful. I was 25% through when I gave this book the axe. If you enjoy bizarre ramblings of an old man, you will like this. Not for me though. #sorrynotsorry

The Silent Wife by A.S.A. Harrison Book Review

The Silent Wife by A.S.A. Harrison / ★★★★ / I first started this in eBook form, then found it through the local library on audiobook to finish because I just couldn’t get through it but read so many raves. Glad I persisted, because I really enjoyed listening to this! Okay, enjoyed might be a strange word to use for a book about a philandering husband who knocks up a woman half of his age whom happens to be his best friend’s daughter… but I’ll let you decide what you think of it. ; )

Glitter and Glue by Kelly Corrigan Book Review

Glitter and Glue by Kelly Corrigan / ★★★ / A memoir about a mother-daughter relationship, I enjoyed this one. I see a lot of my mom in myself the older I get, so I could relate in some regard. I would probably recommend this to a bit older adult than me, however. I didn’t quite feel the connection between the daughter as a parent to her mother, and just couldn’t relate to that. Overall, a good read nonetheless.
