Bookish friends, we’ve crossed another month off our calendar! A couple of days into April, I feel like spring may actually be here to stay!
At the end of February, I posted my first Month in Review, as a month end wrap up of all the books I’d read. Time to build on that tradition with my March wrap up! March was not a prolific reading month for me, but I did squeeze in a few good titles. Let’s see what was on my list!
The Winter Sister by Megan Collins (⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️)
Starting with my last completed read of the month, The Winter Sister is a great domestic suspense novel. We follow Sylvie, who lost her sister Persephone years ago when they were teens. When Sylvie comes back home to care for her ailing mother, she deals with old feelings and people from her past… and then starts asking questions, leading to answers she never saw coming.
Four and a half stars to this debut, which I reviewed in full here: Book Notes: Review of “The Winter Sister” by Megan Collins
The Sherlock Files: The 100-Year-Old Secret by Tracy Barrett
I read this book as part of #MiddleGradeMarch, which was a fun challenge on Instagram. Intended for upper elementary or middle school age kids, The 100-Year-Old-Secret was a fun read with adventure, mystery, and a couple of kid sleuths who happen to be descendants of one of the greatest detectives of all time! This is the first book in a series.
No rating for this title, as I just read this for fun, but recommended for kids who like their action with a hint of who-dun-it!
The Food Blogger Mysteries by Debra Sennefelder (⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️)
The Uninvited Corpse and The Hidden Corpse are the first two books in a new-to-me series by a new-to-me author! In this series we follow Hope, a food blogger who’s just gone through some major life changes, including moving back to her hometown of Jefferson. Unfortunately, her welcome home includes murders that Hope is determined to solve!
This is the first series I’ve seen focused on a blogger, so it was fun to read about that part of Hope’s life. I give each of these titles four stars… a solid start to the series with interesting characters and plenty of misdirection!
The Perfect Girlfriend by Karen Hamilton (⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️)
This was probably my favorite read of the month. The Perfect Girlfriend was twisty, entertaining, and outrageous! Juliette, the main character, was… well, really special in a very dark way. If you haven’t read it, you need to!
Four and a half stars to this debut… here’s my full review: Book Notes: Review of “The Perfect Girlfriend” by Karen Hamilton
So that’s what my March looked like… as I said, not a lot of books read, but I enjoyed the titles above. I’ve got a long list of possibilities for my April reads, and I can’t wait to share them with you throughout the month. In the meantime… happy reading!
