March Books and Gratitude

April is here. Crazy! 

Here are the books that I was able to read for March. I have now read 23 books. Only 52 more to go to reach my goal of 75 for the year!


  • The Good Luck of Right Now by Matthew Quick: This is the same dude who wrote Silver Linings Playbook and so far I have loved every book he has written. 
  • Twisted Sisters by Jen Lancaster: this was a tough book to get through. Kind of a predicable story about a awful girl who doesn't realize how awful she is until she loses everything. 
  • The Revolution of Evelyn Serrano by Sonia Manzano: not just young adult but YA written by Maria from Sesame Street! Quick read and good story. 
  • Golden State by Michelle Richmond: this was a good and suspenseful book. It was those kind of books that I find myself thinking about way after I finished it. 
  • The Duck Commander Family by Willie & Korie Robertson: I really love this show and this was a fun read to learn a little more about this family. 
  • The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman: a very spooky story. Lots of vivid descriptions and in my mind it played out with the same claymation of Coraline.
  • I Suck at Girls by Justin Halpern: this book is the same guy who wrote "Shit my Dad Says". A funny book about a nerdy guy trying to figure out women and the hilarious and often straight forward advice from his dad. 

There was also lots to be grateful for!
