March Bookshelf

Ever since I've moved out of the city city of Atlanta, I've become a little bit of a hermit. The upside of my newfound solitude? so much more time to read. I knocked a chunk out of my goodreads challenge for 2017. I don't remember why I picked 20 books to read, but that's the goal. ANYWAYS. Here's what I read this month.

Into The Wilderness// I think technically I finished this one at the end of February, but I haven't blogged about it yet. So it counts. Obviously, I read this one because Diana Gabaldon was on the cover saying it was great. I liked this one, although it was a little slow. It fit into my long historical fiction narrative, so I would absolutely recommend it, but only if you're ready for about 850 pages of tight print. It is the first of a series, so it ends in a bit of a cliff hanger. I did't love it so much as to start the next one in the series though... 

Big Little Lies// Before you ask, I've only seen the first episode of the HBO show. I loved this book. It was different than what I have been reading and I absolutely devoured it. It's told in a choppy manner from three different narrators. I definitely didn't see the ending coming and I didn't feel like the twist was teased constantly (an issue I've had with books that I should read because I loved Gone Girl) Eventually I will watch the rest of the HBO show, but I have so many things on my DVR I feel like I'll never get to them. 

Dead Letters// This one was my very first Book of The Month book. It started a little slow but, once I got into it, I couldn't put it down. Honestly one day I was going to read a couple of chapters with my morning coffee and the next thing I know, I'd finished the entire book. I'm really excited about the whole Book of The Month thing too, because it's a built in suggestion every month! If you're interested in trying the BoTM, you can use my referral link here and get your first book for $1! 

All The Missing Girls// This is cheating, I have't finished this one yet, but I read 75% of it in the month of March and I'll probably finish it tonight (yeah, wild Friday night indeed!) This one made me a little dizzy at first, because it's not told in linear time, which took me a couple of chapters to get used to, but once I was used to it, I loved it. It's another one where I try to just read a couple of chapters and next thing I know it's been three hours. 

So, that's what I've been reading lately! Hopefully I will get better at my book reviews as we go forward with this... What have you been reading lately? Any suggestions? Do you use goodreads? Send me some suggestions!
