I am so grateful to be done with March… This month felt especially long, mostly because of the weather. One day it was snowing and the next it was 70 degrees. It really just made me long for full-on spring. On the positive side, because the weather was so nice on some days, it really had me prioritizing my audiobooks on long walks. I normally listen to one audiobook every other month but this month I finished two! If you are struggling to fit reading into your day, I highly recommend listening to an audiobook.
Now onto what I read this month
The Midnight Library: I have to preface this book by saying there is a trigger warning for suicide. This was an absolutely amazing book that I have been recommending to everyone. The premise of this book is that between life and death there is a library with infinite books about your life based on different decisions you make and you get to live out as many of those lives as you’d like. It deals a lot with regret and finding your place in the world.
The Escape Room: I could not put this book down! It had been a while since I read a really good thriller and I can’t recommend this one enough. It follows a finance team who is invited to an escape room challenge to work on team bonding, but things do not go as planned. You won’t want to put this book down, so I recommend planning a late weekend reading session.
Caste: This was one of the audiobooks that I took on long walks and it was eye-opening. This book dives deep into the American Caste System and how it compares to India and the Nazi regime. It is a longer audiobook and has a lot of topics that need time so I highly recommend bringing a journal on your walk or having a second audiobook on hand after you finish 1-2 chapters of this one.
My Friend Anna: Oh my gosh was this a great find! I downloaded this audiobook after hearing it mentioned in a Facebook group and it did not disappoint. This book follows the true story of Anna, a fake heiress who cons a Vanity Fair writer out of $40,000. I listened to this while driving or walking and just didn’t want it to end.
Infinite Country: This pick was for my March Book Club. If you want to join for April, you can learn more here. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and one that I think will be talked about a lot this year. ”How this family came to occupy two different countries, two different worlds, comes into focus like twists of a kaleidoscope.”
