Library Check Out – March 2019

Hi friends! Sorry – I didn’t mean to fall off the radar this past week. I wasn’t able to make much time for writing, but that opened up time for other things that filled my bucket – I hope to share more about that soon. But we’re approaching the end of March, so it’s the perfect time to share my library books for the month.

As always, thanks to Bookish Beck for creating and hosting this monthly link up. March is usually a weird reading month for me and this year has been no exception. So without further ado, here’s my library report!

Library Books Read

  • The Crossing Places by Elly Griffiths – This was fairly enjoyable! The best part is that the main character, Ruth Galloway, is an archaeologist living in a cozy little cottage by a saltmarsh. I love cozy little cottages! BUT – I did wish (many times) that Ruth would stop complaining about her weight!
  • The Grave’s a Fine and Private Place by Alan Bradley – The 9th Flavia de Luce – what a cheeky little girl she is! I think it’s time for me to put a pause on this series, but Flavia is such a great character!
  • Good Riddance by Elinor Lipman – I hated this book. I only kept reading it because large chunks were set in New Hampshire. What an utterly unlikable main character!
  • The More of Less by Joshua Becker – I wasn’t wild about this book either. I enjoyed reading about the experiments for minimizing and the experiences of others that he brought in, but it felt a bit too basic for where I am right now. That should probably be a hint to me — I KNOW the benefits of minimizing and how to do it, so I should probably stop reading about it and do my best to embrace it!

Currently Reading

  • Home by Marilynne Robinson – Robinson is so great at digging into her characters. I wasn’t expecting this one to be told from the perspective of Glory, a seemingly minor character in Gilead and Robert Boughton’s daughter. I was expecting it to be through Boughton’s eyes, but once again — Robinson has delighted me by giving me something unexpected and rich with details.
