Monthly Wrap Up

March 2019 Wrap Up

Another month gone by – insane! I still am not entirely sure how on earth we have finished the first quarter of 2019. Time flies! Anyhoo … March was an ok reading month for me. I was able to finish 5 books and I DNF’d one. (And I’m still frustrated with Goodreads because it’s going to count my totals wrong this year – the John Adams book I finished this month is a two-book series – TWO books – Goodreads counts it as one. NO! Two books = two books. Ugh. Rant over.) Anyway, here’s what I read in March:

And Then There Were NoneThe Hunting PartyJohn Adams (Smith)Simple Genius15th Affair

Okay, so when I went back I realized that I never posted a review of And Then There Were None … oops! Long story short – I really enjoyed it! Definitely recommend that one! Also, look for my review of 15th Affair later this week. Best book this month? Probably The Hunting Party. The DNF? The Enchanted April by Elizabeth von Arnim. It was the March selection for the Modern Mrs. Darcy book club. I read to page 83 and then sent it back to the library. It just didn’t work for me. I didn’t like the characters and I didn’t really care for the storyline, I spent a week reading those 83 pages and decided that it wasn’t worth “toughing it out” and sent it back with no regrets.

Moving on … I wasn’t very active here on the blog this month, I just didn’t have much drive to get onto the computer to be honest. But here’s what I did post (other than the reviews which are linked to the book covers:

Off the blog March passed relatively uneventfully. I did participate in a 5K with my running buddy on St. Patrick’s Day. My overall time was right in line with where I usually am for 3 miles, however my first mile I did have my best time: 14:59! Woo! I run at a snail’s pace, but I don’t really care – I’m still getting out there and staying active. I got new running shoes this month too! They’re awesome! I hadn’t realized how worn out my previous pair were until I slipped the new ones on. We got the kids signed up for t-ball and baseball – they start practices this week. This is Katelyn’s first year playing and she’s so excited! This is Garrett’s 4th season, so he knows the routine. Of course I’m not really looking forward to the 3-4 days at the ball fields, but the kids enjoy it so that makes me happy. I saw two movies in the theater this month: I took Garrett to see How to Train Your Dragon (cute!) and then Nathan and I went and saw Captain Marvel (good).

Well, I think that’s about all I’ve got for now. Hopefully I can get back into my groove with posting and be a little more active around here.

Happy reading!
