March 2023 Reading Wrap Up #MarchReadingWrapUp

I hope your March reading has been satisfying!
Here’s my March 2023 Reading Wrap Up.

March 2023 Reading Wrap Up

March 2023 Reading Wrap Up (collage of covers)

In March, I enjoyed some varied reads. Out of the 10 books completed, I had one 5-star read, four 4.5-star reads, three 4-star reads, one 3.5–star read, and one 2-star read that wasn’t to my personal taste.

My most memorable fiction read this month is The Cuban Heiress by Chanel Cleeton, a unique and pageturning histfic/mystery inspired by a real event (review coming soon). The most overall thought-provoking read this month is Atlas of the Heart by Brené Brown (review coming soon).

Fifth Avenue Glamour Girl by Renée Rosen (ARC)

3.5 Stars. (ARC) Historical Fiction. I was expecting this to be more about Estee Lauder.  (Review coming soon)

New Girl in Little Cove by Damhnait Monaghan

2.5 Stars. Historical Fiction. Canada. This has an enticing premise that set up my expectations only to be disappointed. Others may love it, but it was not to my taste (religious profanity, negativity toward the Catholic church, inexperienced teacher that initially borders on unqualified). Not reviewed and not recommendable if we share reading tastes.

Happy Reading Book Buddies!

“Ah, how good it is to be among people who are reading.”
~Rainer Maria Rilke

“I love the world of words, where life and literature connect.”
~Denise J Hughes

“Reading good books ruins you for enjoying bad ones.”
~Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

“I read because books are a form of transportation, of teaching, and of connection! Books take us to places we’ve never been, they teach us about our world, and they help us to understand human experience.”
