March Reading

The books I read in March:

Heads in Beds by Jacob Tomsky (library) actually I read this one in February, but forgot to add it to that list, a fun look at the Hotel industry!

Notorious Nineteen by Janet Evanovich (library) same old same old from Evanovich, but did make me laugh several times
Silver Linings Playbook by Matthew Quick (library) the movie was very true to the book
Sutton by J. R. Moehringer (library) inspired by our gangster tour in Chicago to read about this NYC bank robber
The Twelve Clues of Christmas by Rhys Bowen (library) lots of fun (I'm a huge fan)
The Walnut Tree by Charles Todd (library) more romance than mystery in this latest Charles Todd book
I Do and I Don't a History of Marriage in the Movies by Jeanine Basinger (library) Analysis of how marriage was portrayed in movies from silent films to the present. very good
The Art Forger by B. A. Shapiro (library) A great take on the Gardner Art Heist. I liked it a lot
The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky (library) OMG, loved it, cannot image how they can make a movie from this...hmmmm
The Empty Copper Sea by John D MacDonald loved reading this while on the beach in florida
The Secret Keeper by Kate Morton (library) WWII England intrigue, reminded me a bit too of Elizabeth Berg WWII stories also
Going Away Shoes by Jill McCorkle (library) short stories by one of my favorite authors
Creatures of Habit by Jill McCorkle (library) more short stories and I am not sure how I got out of the loop on these two books, but better late than never.
March by Geraldine Brooks (library) you know Little Women and their dad was off in the war, this is the story of their dad, reminded me of cold mountain a little bit
Reached by Allyson Condie (library) Okay, I had to read it to finish this trilogy, actually liked it better than the second one (maybe because it tied up loose ends)
Prima Donna by Megan Chance set in 1800's Seattle an opera singer flees her past
The Green Ripper by John D MacDonald This one should be read after Empty Copper Sea as some of the same characters return but could stand on it's own as well....You read Copper Sea aftewards and it is a bit of a spoiler
Bad Blood by Dana Stabenaw (library) Kate Shugak mystery
Proof of Guilt by Charles Todd (library) Ian Rutledge mystery
The Railway Detective by Edward Marston

20 books read this month

We LOVED "Sutton" and nary a day goes by we don't thank you for turning us on to the Charles Todd books! We're reading them from the first one and are on the 5th.
