March was thriller month! Four of the seven adult books I read were thrillers, with the other three being one romance, one fiction, and one motivational.
My 2 favorites
Other Birds by Sarah Addison Allen. I posted about it here. She is one of my very few auto buys.
My Darkest Prayer by S.A. Cosby. I’ve read all three of his books, this being his debut. He’s grown into a must read for me.
I read 21 books for kids. 10 non fiction picture books, 8 fiction picture books, 3 middle school fiction.
My 5 favorites
Snow Treasure by Marie McSwigan. Middle school historical fiction based on Norwegian children smuggling gold out of the country on their sleds while Nazis watched, unknowing.
King Sejong Invents an Alphabet by Carol Kim and Cindy Kang. Education is for everyone!
Rice from Heaven by Tina Cho and Krug Jin Sing. A beautiful true story of South Koreans sending food to their starving northern neighbors by balloon.
Zhang Zheng and the Incredible Earthquake Detector by Randel McGee. Great story and fabulous illustrations.
My Dragon Boat Festival by Bing Ge and Li Li. I thought this book looked too childish for Gage, but when we read it together it was a good jumping off point and I loved the illustrations.
I’ve read 69 books this year, less than I would like, BUT, I really am trying to find a life balance.

I’m not a huge fan of Sarah Addison Allen, but I’ve heard so many good things about Other Birds that I couldn’t resist it when I saw it on the shelf at the library. I’ve read a few pages and look forward to sinking into it tomorrow. We’re camping (in our rv) for the next few days, but it’s supposed to rain A LOT so I plan to curl up with my book.
My favorite book in March is tied between Signal Fires (Dani Shapiro) and The Lost Man (Jane Harper). Both were so entertaining and thought-provoking!
I hope you can stay dry and enjoy the book.
