March Reading Round Up

March picked up the reading pace a bit, with book club, an audiobook, a recommendation from my students, and Spring Break.  I did hit my ten books and, after a week of relaxing and reading, I realized that I'll catch on my goals over the summer if I get behind.

I already blogged a couple of my March reads--Beneath Devil's Bridge by Loreth Anne White from my book club and The It Girls by Karen Harper from a Blind Date with a Book event.

But since I was quite busy, here's what else I read in March:

One Last Shot: Based on a True Story of Wartime Heroism: The Story of Wartime Photographer Gerda Taro by Kip Wilson - This YA book caught my eye and I loved the fact it was written in verse.  Not expected, and my first poetry book of the year.

The Wild Robot Escapes by Peter Brown - Another recommendation from a class I was subbing, and since I read the first one, I had to read the sequel.

The Overdue Life of Amy Byler by Kelly Harms - This one keeps coming up on a few Facebook book pages I'm on, so I grabbed it while my Kindle Unlimited was still active.

28 Days by David Safier - My second audiobook of the year, and a look at the resistance during WW2.

The Job by Janet Evanovich - My other Blind Date with a Book choice, I didn't even remember that Janet Evanovich had another series besides Stephanie Plum.  This one was listed as mystery, and the first line also caught my eye! "FBI Special Agent Kate O'Hare slouched back in her tan leather executive office chair, looked across her desk, and surveyed the lobby of the Tarzana branch of the California Metro Bank."

Deadly Tide by Brian Spangler - I love his Detective Casey White series, and this novel is a bit of a prequel to that series, with the back story of Jericho Quinn, Casey's partner.

So, This is Love by Tracey Andreen - Another sequel to a book I read last year, the first was recommended by a friend who is friends with the author.

Book Lovers by Emily Henry - This one was recommended by several friends, so I grabbed it at the library.  They weren't wrong when they told me that I'd enjoy it.

So, this month included 10 total reads including one audiobook, two blind date books, one book club pick, two YA ish, and four other picks.  Ten a month is my ideal situation, so this month, I made it!
