When I come to pull these end of month lists together, it’s always such a nice feeling when you can look over all your titles and feel like you enjoyed every single one. As was the case for my March reads.
There was a little variety in there too – some months I read 100% fiction – but here I have not only a non-fiction choice but a children’s book too. I know. Excelling myself.
My March Book Reviews:
(Click on book title for my full review.)
/ What the World Needs Now: Bees by Cheryl Rosebush
/ The Soul of a Woman by Isabel Allende
/ The Castaways by Lucy Clarke
/ Asking for a Friend by Andi Osho
/ Lord Edgware Dies by Agatha Christie
/ His Only Wife by Peace Adzo Medie
/ Tall Bones by Anna Bailey
/ Madame Burova by Ruth Hogan
/ Last Night by Mhairi McFarlane
So yes, my non-fiction read was The Soul of a Woman a brilliant feminist manifesto that was wildly thought-provoking and informative. The same could be said (not the feminist part) of my children’s book – it was all about the importance of bees and a great way to introduce environmental issues to children.
Fiction-wise, from an Agatha Christie classic (a good one too!) to a modern thriller about a plane crash (The Castaways) to books that celebrate friendship and warm characters (Asking for a Friend, Madame Burova and Last Night) and ones that open up a whole other culture to me (His Only Wife) – specifically looking at traditional and arranged marriages in African culture and a woman who doesn’t want to be part of that – these were all brilliant reads and I’d happily recommend all of them!
I’m now cracking on with my April reads and very excited to share those with you. Already off to a great start, I’m reading Greenwich Park by Katherine Faulkner – an excellent thriller. Can’t wait to see how it ends!
