The past few weeks my reading life was filled with fairly light-hearted, easy books with quick plots. Due to all the moving and unpacking, I was not in the mood to sit and linger with any sort of long winded literary fiction or classic novel. So if you are in that state of mind too, I hope you find a new-to-you book on my list! Here’s my first Friday Reading RoundUp for March.
This week’s Reading Roundup!
Work Book (for lunch time reading):
The Rosie Effect by Graeme Simsion – The prequel to this novel, the The Rosie Project is a delightful read about a quirky man searching for a wife. In this book, we dive back into their lives as they prepare for having a baby.
The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss – Almost done with this one finally! Since I’m already familiar with the story, I’m reading it a bit slower this time around. It’s excellent, so I’m really hoping Rothfuss releases the third book in the series soon!! Although, fans have been begging for years and it still hasn’t happened…
Britt-Marie Was Here by Fredrik Backman – During my first trip to my new library, I decided to give this a try based on my love for the author’s more famous work, A Man Called Ove. It sounded fairly similar since the main character is a socially awkward, busy body type woman who finds relationships in unexpected places.
The Bookshop On the Corner by Jennie Colgan – I was hooked from the first pages when Colgan began with hilarious and absolutely true observations about the best places for reading. The story follows a woman who is obsessed with books (sounds like me…) and decides to move to Scotland and start selling books from a van. She deals with the usual cast of characters: hard to win over townspeople, old friendships, an unexpected love interest. Any fans of books in general and rom com movies will adore this one just as much as I did.
From Around the Web:
AirBnBs for Book Lovers – New favorite Buzzfeed list! Is it too much to want to visit all of these??
Products To Try If You Eat Raw Cookie Dough – For those times when I don’t feel like making it myself.
Every Episode of Fixer Upper Ranked – For my fellow Chip and Joanna fans, here’s a list of all their episodes from worst to best. If nothing else, read this solely for “Chip’s Best Lines” from each one.
