March Reads

It’s time to share what I read in March.

In case you missed it, here’s what I read in January and here’s what I read in February. 

The Broken Girls by Simone St. James

This was a February Book of the Month* book. The story follows journalist Fiona Sheridan as she works on uncovering why anyone would ever want to restore the rumored, haunted boarding school, Idlewood Hall. The story goes between 1950 and 2014 and was a really good book with an ending I didn’t see coming.

Sex, Jesus and the Conversations the Church Forgot by Mo Isom

In a world that is so saturated with sex, author Mo Isom shares her testimony and gives an honest look at the conversations the church forgot to have. She goes where few Christian authors have gone. It was a good read even though parts were redundant. I would recommend this book to youth workers and high school and college age students.

Other People’s Houses by Abbi Waxman

This was my March Book of the Month Club* book. It was a quick and easy read but definitely more chick-lit like than I usually read. Also? A lot of language. Frances Bloom is carpool mom extraordinaire- always available for her kids and her neighbors but when she discovers one of the other neighborhood moms having an affair, everything goes haywire. One thing the book did well was examine the difficulties of divorce and separation on children.

Hunger by Roxane Gay

This one was HEAVY. This was a memoir that I learned about on a podcast at the end of last year so I added it to my list and as an add on one month with Book of the Month*. Roxanne writes about her lifelong weight struggles and the underlying reasons for her overeating and weight gain. It felt like reading the pages of her journal. It was long and it was heavy.
