March Book Review

I had big plans for March...

My last month before baby AND Spring Break? I definitely planned to make the most of this month and read several books...

Spoiler alert...I did not. I actually only read 2 books this month...and the second was not finished until a few days into April...but in my defense Lil' B's arrival was a bit of a surprise and labor was a little quicker than I anticipated so I didn't get any reading done at the hospital #AmateurHour

And while I didn't technically finish book #2 in March the majority of it was read in March, and it's my New Year's I make the rules :)

 I mentioned this book in February's book review and I was about half-way through. While I enjoyed the book I have to say it took me FOREVER to finally finish. In my was a LONG book and I was tired. Staying awake at night was tough...and weekends were spent finishing the nursery and finishing all the last minute things before baby. 

I haven't met a JoJo Moyes book that I haven't liked and this one was no exception. It's not my favorite of hers, but one I enjoyed none the less. I love historical fiction, and I especially love it when it's about a time period/event that I don't have a lot of prior knowledge with. I almost feel like I am learning and becoming more worldly, and enjoying myself at the same time :)

Sophia Kinsella is one that doesn't usually disappoint me...but something about this book druuuuuggggg ooooonnn forever for me. I am not sure if it is because my mind was busy thinking about baby's arrival...and then I finished it once he was born. I suppose my mind was not in a place to enjoy a book...even one as simple and mindless as this one :) I wouldn't say it's the worst, but I have read better. 

April is off to a good start...I have an ebook downloaded and it's been my best friend during the never ending nursing sessions and somethings at 2AM when lil' man decides he won't sleep unless I am holding him :) 

I have a feeling I will get through at least 2 books in April, but I won't make any promises!
