I read 6 great books this month. Isn't there just something about curling up with a warm mug under blankets and reading? But I also can't wait for a cool glass of lemonade and patio reading too (Come on, spring!). Ok....let's get to the books. By the way, I spent part of the month on maternity leave so I don't expect to read as many books in March. A girl can try, though....my "want to read" list is long!
4. The Royal We by Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan: I really enjoyed this love story! It's basically a Lifetime movie meets the story of Megan Markle and Prince Harry meets classic chick lit. I love me a story that spans time and this one follows the American Rebecca Porter on her journey from college dorm days to her transformation to sophisticated royal wife....with lots of ups and downs in between. It was heartfelt, cute, funny and.....long (about 500 pages). About 100 pages too long in my opinion, but overall, I was glad I read it.
5. Sisters First by Jenna Bush Hager and Barbara Pierce Bush: I really enjoyed this book written by the Bush twins about their life story. I think Jenna is just adorable on The Today Show and life inside The White House fascinates me (I wrote my senior thesis on First Ladies). I love how this story isn't told chronologically but rather through anecdotes about dating life, being a college student with a secret service team in tow, their awesome humanitarian work, what it's like to hear your dad bashed in the media, and more. I had no idea both Laura Bush's family as well as George Bush 41's were plagued by baby loss. This was a quick, interesting read.
6. Look Again by Lisa Scottoline: This book was a recommendation from my mom and I really enjoyed it. It follows a woman who discovers her adopted son's picture on a Missing Children sign. She investigates and uncovers all sorts of drama and deception. This one reminds me a lot of Jodi Piccoult's books. I highly recommend this one if you're looking for a juicy novel to get lost in.
I'm ready to dive into my March reads!
