We are three months into 2020 and I am less than three months until my wedding! AHHH. At least the anxiety is giving way to excitement, especially because my bridal shower is in two weeks. Yet there is so much to get done still, between finalizing things with my vendors, doing the favors and all the little things that you don’t think of. It seems a bit daunting at times but luckily spring is coming, which always gives me more motivation to get things done.
But enough about my personal life, let’s get on with the reason why you are reading this post…books! I have some fun reads and rereads on the list this month. I tried to keep it light since I am going to be a bit busy and I am not going to be able to get into the heavy reading.
Book Club picks
“The Woman in the Window” by A.J. Finn
So I read this back in March 2018 for an old book club and ironically enough I am going to be reading it in March again for another book club. Funny how life goes in circles. I loved this book when I first read it back then and, to this day, I recommend it to anyone and everyone. It’s a page turner and leaves you guessing until the very last page. However, enough time has passed now that I don’t recall the specifics of this book so I am sure I am going to enjoy it as much as the first time.
“Matilda” by Roald Dahl
I haven’t read this book since I was a child. My book club, Society for Avid Readers Across the Hudson, is reading this book for March simply because they wanted a fun, light read. I love Matilda and enjoyed the movie just as much. It will be fun going to back to this book, which is currently collecting dust in the back of a book shelf.
“Midnight’s Children” by Salman Rushdie
This is the last book on the list for the Modern Library’s Top 100 Book Club. After this we have officially completed the Modern Library’s list. I started this book about a week ago but it’s a slow read as of right now. I am hoping that it picks up some steam or it’s going to be a long month. We don’t discuss this until the first week in April so we have some time. I also have heard nothing but good things about this book so here’s to hoping.
Barnes and Noble Book Club pick?
This one is a mystery as they don’t announce the new book until the discussion. That isn’t until March 4 so you’re just going to have to wait until the wrap-up to see what we read for March.
“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” by J.K. Rowling
You’re probably saying, “Wait, you’re not done with this yet?” I kind of got side tracked with other reads and threw this one to the side, but good news, I picked it up yesterday and I am hoping to be done with it by tomorrow. Then I can officially say that I have completed the series once and for all. It only took me how many years? Haha.
“Becoming” by Michelle Obama
I saved the best for last. Given that it’s Women’s History Month, I figured that it was about time that I should get to this book. It’s only been staring at me from my bookshelf since Christmas and on my TBR for even longer. I have heard nothing but good things about this book so I am sure I am going to enjoy it.
