March Reading Review

Book Club

This month we read When Beauty Tamed the Beast by Eloisa James.  Our discussion covered both this book and our January read which was Kiss at Midnight by Eloisa James.  Both of these books are in her Fairy Tales series and I believe the Princess and the Pea is the next fairy tale she’s going to be reimagining.

I checked out eight books this month (as well as a bunch of DVDs). In February I checked out and returned Fannie’s Last Supper and Decision Points by George W. Bush, but after a few weeks I was ready to read them so I checked them out again.  I finished Fannie’s Last Supper but I’m slowly working my way through Decision Points.  It’s not that I do not like the book; I just forget I have it. Of the six other books I’ve checked out I flew through 5 and haven’t touched Lie with Me by Stephanie Tyler yet.

  1. Fannie's last supper : re-creating one amazing meal from Fannie Farmer's 1896 cookbook by Christopher Kimball
  2. Decision Points by George W. Bush (book)
  3. The Pioneer Woman : black heels to tractor wheels by Ree Drummond
  4. The Other Wes Moore : one name, two fates by Wes Moore 
  5. Critical Care by Candace Calvert 
  6.  Lie with Me by Stephanie Tyler
  7. Disaster Status by Candace Calvert
  8. Code Triage by Candace Calvert

I finished five more books during this month, well it may be four, it depends on your definition of a man in uniform and if that counts an ER doctor who wears scrubs everyday to work. I put the Suzanne Brockmann books on hold to read the Mercy Hospital series by Candace Calvert. I’ll be returning to Suzanne Brockmann in April, I can’t wait to get back to my Navy SEALS.
  • Harvard's Education by Suzanne Brockmann
  • Hawken's Heart by Suzanne Brockmann
  • Critical Care by Candace Calvert (may or may not be a man in uniform getting mixed opinions from people that a Dr. that wears scrubs every day is or isn't considered a uniform)
  • Disaster Status by Candace Calvert
  • Code Triage by Candace Calvert
