30 new books in 2015 | march.



I am continuing my project of reading 30 new books in 2015. So far, I am fairly pleased with my progress. It is only the month of March and I have already read 12 new books. Granted one of those books is an entertainment book plus cookbook, Around the Table by Martina McBride, but it is well-worth the read. And, too, one of those books is a phenomenal book on documenting life by Ali Edwards called Life Artist - such good reading and reflection, cover to cover. 

Obsession in Death by J.D. Robb. The latest in Robb's In Death series starring Lieutenant Eve Dallas, her hunky and gazillionaire husband, Roarke plus amazing supporting casts. Of course, the book did not disappoint. After so many offerings from Robb in this series one might become bored. But NOT ME! Love everyone of them.

Unbroken by Laura Hildabrand. Oh my! Amazing book not just defined by the life of Olympian and more importantly WWII POW and veteran Louis Zamperini, but also by the unbridled, passion of the authors prose, Hildabrand. Such a good book!

The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman. My most recent read and one, once I got through the first couple chapters I couldn't put down. It is a hard, moving novel most definitely about how life can just throw curve ball after curve ball. And even more how good people can just make bad decisions and the consequences to their actions can be far-reaching. One of the best quotes in the book, "Sometimes life turns out hard, Isabel. Sometimes it just bites right through you. And sometimes when you think it's done its worst it comes back and takes another bite."

I have two books 'on my nightstand' right now and hope to begin one of those today - if the weather holds and I'm not too busy at work. Because lately that is where I've done most of my reading - at work, and waiting rooms.
