Books of the Month: March

           

    Here is a list of a few books I read this past month that really jumped out at me. All of them are different and would be good for any reader; they aren’t just drawn towards one specific person. If you haven’t read these books then I would suggest you read them yourself and see how amazing they are. So here are the ones I enjoyed this month:

–        Sister by Rosamund Lupton.- I wrote a post about this, mainly focusing on my relationship between my two sisters and how this book dwelled upon that. Here is the link to that post:

–        The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Annie Barrows and Mary Ann Shaffer- I also wrote a post about this. It is a very witty, funny novel about a small island’s Germany occupation during World War II. Here is the link to the post:

–        In the Garden with Jane Austen by Kim Wilson- This book focused on the importance of gardens during the Regency period on England along with their important in Jane Austen’s novels. If you think back to her novels, a great many important scenes took place in a garden and the book highlights Jane’s love for a well-kept garden. If you are a garden lover then this book is a great addition to you collection and a great book for any Jane Austen lover.

–        Me and Mr. Darcy by Alexandra Potter- I wrote a post about this as well, focusing mainly on me and my connection with the main character of the novel. It is a perfect chic lit novel for anyone to get into; just a fun quick read which would be perfect for the upcoming spring and summer months. Here is the link:

So there are all my favorites for this month. I haven’t been reading as much as I would have liked this month but it happens that life catches up with me once more. I hope everyone had a good month and that you get a chance to pick up some of these fantastic works. I would also like to say that this will be my only post for the week since this week I will in Wales/Gloucestershire to gain some R&R (Rest and Relaxation) at my family’s cottage. I am looking forward to getting out into the English countryside since it is the place I prefer more than the city. Maybe I am more like Jane Austen that we prefer the country lifestyle to a busy city. I hope everyone has a good week!

Have you read any of these books? If so then what did you think??
