Here it is, nearly the middle of April, and I'm still stuck in March. March was a much better reading month than February, and I have high hopes for April
Books Read in March
Still Alice by Lisa Genova--loved it. My review here.
Mudbound by Hillary Jordan--really good. My review here.
Beautiful Boy by David Sheff--excellent but emotionally draining. My review here.

Best Book of the Month

Half-Broke Horses by Jeannette Wells and re-reading (for about the 5th time) Jane Eyre, which I'm currently teaching in a World Lit class.
