Once again, I read a lot of great books in March. You can see them all here (affiliate link), and below I’m sharing a bit about the best ones below.
I enjoyed Allegiant (Divergent Series) by Veronica Roth, although not as much as the previous two books in the trilogy. However, it was still a fun read – and even more fun is that since it’s a Young Adult book, I’ve been able to discuss it with my daughter and her friends (although they are all still on the first and second books). With the movie coming out this month, I wanted to be sure I’d read all the books – I think we’ll make a fun girls outing and take our daughters to see it. Although there is more violence in it than I’d like in a Young Adult book, overall it’s an interesting story and worth reading. It also leads to some interesting discussions on nature versus nurture. My rating: 4 out of 5
I LOVED Cold Tangerines: Celebrating the Extraordinary Nature of Everyday Life by Shauna Niequist. She has such an amazing writing voice – when I read her collection of essays, it feels like she’s a close friend sharing her thoughts and feelings. Love her. In fact, I loved the last essay so much that I wrote a portion of it in my journal – it’s such a good reminder of how I want to live my life, that I wanted to be able to re-read it often. Recommend this book: My rating 5 out of 5.
This book is one I think every family should read. It’s chock full of helpful advice and fun ideas to increase happiness within your family. Will everything work for your family? Probably not, and the author is quite candid about that, but many of the ideas will be helpful – and are very thought-provoking. I enjoyed this book enough to buy myself a copy after I checked it out of the library – it’s a book I believe I’ll reference again and again. My rating: 5 out of 5.
So what were YOUR favorite books this month? Any good ones planned for next month? We’ve got Spring Break coming up so I’ll be loading up my Kindle soon to give myself plenty of vacation options, and always appreciate recommendations!
