Books I Intended to Read in March (but Didn't)
Because March was the longest, most stressful month of my life (in recent memory, anyway).
- •The stack on my nightstand
- •The Conscious BrideI'm getting married in just under two months. A friend recommended this to me, but flipping through, it seems mostly about how "all of the stress and tension is really about the loss of your identity." Weird.
- •13 Ways of Looking at a Fat Girl by Mona AwadI ordered this straight from the Penguin Random House newsletter. Being a sucker for a bold title and good jacket copy, phrases like " skewers image-obsessed culture" and "powerfully humanizing" and "sly humor" are no brainers. I am looking forward to reading it... Someday.
- •The Quick by Lauren OwenMy fiancé bought this for me, knowing my love for historical fantasy. Blurb from Deborah Harkness didn't hurt. I've enjoyed the cover design all month long.
- •The Telling by Jo BakerI picked this one up because Baker's "Longbourn" was one of my favorite reads last year. Odd thing though: I didn't REMEMBER purchasing the book when I was last at Barnes and Noble because I picked it up again and carried it around the store, with the full intention of buying it (again). Something made me put it back, and when I got home, there it was. So yeah, this seems to be a book cursed with "it can wait syndrome".
- •Wanna guess which books are on my April To-Read List?
