My reading always is ebbing and flowing – I’ll be in a GREAT rhythm and reading so many good books and then nothing looks good, every book is boring, and I can’t force myself to sit down and read.
At this point, I’m used to this routine and don’t try to force it too much.
The good news is that right now I feel like it’s a book paradise – I’m reading a lot and so many good books that are really absorbing me.
Here are six books I’m currently in the middle of.
March 2022 Reads
The Best We Could Do by Thi Bui
After I read about this graphic novel memoir in this Stanford article, I requested it from the library and was immediately sucked in. It’s actually the first graphic novel I’ve read as an ebook and it’s been surprisingly fine to read it digitally!
A Place to Hang the Moon by Kate Albus
I’ve been so excited to read this one aloud to my girls after about a million people said it was the best middle grade novel they read last year and when the library hold came in and timed perfectly with finishing our LAST read aloud, we dove right in. We read 100 pages in the first two nights and we’ll probably finish it by the end of the week.
One Step Too Far by Lisa Gardner
I read and loved her book Touch & Go (it was on last year’s Summer Reading Guide), but I’d never picked up another of her novels until this newest one started popping up on all the bestseller lists. I’ve been listening to the audio (I haven’t read the first book in the series – this is the second one – but it hasn’t seemed to be a problem so far).
Rock Paper Scissors by Alice Feeney
I’ve slipped behind in my Book of the Month Club books, so I grabbed this one off the shelf (it gets bonus points for being a bit shorter than some of the other ones) and it’s been a fun, engrossing read so far. Mysteries are really doing it for me right now!
Dragon Hoops by Gene Luen Yang
I read and loved this book last year and just picked it up again to read this month for Everyday Reading Book Club and I’m loving revisiting it! It’s just such a masterfully written book and I’m delighted by the daily messages I get from people saying they steer clear of both graphic novels AND sports and they still absolutely couldn’t put this one down.
