I can't quite believe that March is actually over. I also can't believe how many books I have read this month! 

(see the extended reading list here)

It wasn't easy to pick out my four favorite books. It's always a difficult task for me. I read so many amazing books by so many brilliant authors that a lot of times it's far easier to pick ou the ones I didn't like! 

However, I promised a round up and here she is:

My 4 Favorite Books from March

Elley's Bookshelf: White Houses by Amy Bloom |   Why I Loved It:  It's an honest look at the life people refused to see. I also enjoyed the realism and how Bloom was able to make the first lady and her reporter lover into the real people they once were. | lesbian | potus | historical fiction | novel | white house

Synopsis:

Lorena Hickok meets Eleanor Roosevelt in 1932 while reporting on Franklin Roosevelt’s first presidential campaign. As her connection with the future first lady deepens into intimacy, what begins as a powerful passion matures into a lasting love, and a life that Hick never expected to have.

Why I Loved It:

It's an honest look at the life people refused to see. I also enjoyed the realism and how Bloom was able to make the first lady and her reporter lover into the real people they once were.

Synopsis:

Jack and Grace are inseparable. Some might call this true love. Others might wonder why Grace never answers the phone. Or why she can never meet for coffee, even though she doesn’t work. How she can cook such elaborate meals but remain so slim. Or why she never seems to take anything with her when she leaves the house, not even a pen. Or why there are such high-security metal shutters on all the downstairs windows. Some might wonder what’s really going on once the dinner party is over, and the front door has closed.

Why I Loved It:

A whirlwind adventure full of deception, fabrication and even murder. How far is one woman willing to go to save herself and the ones she loves? Especially when she is saving them from one she loves as well. Hardboiled and gripping!

Elley's Bookshelf: Behind Closed Doors by BA Paris  A whirlwind adventure full of deception, fabrication and even murder. How far is one woman willing to go to save herself and the ones she loves? Especially when she is saving them from one she loves as well. Hardboiled and gripping! | mystery | thriller | hardboiled  | suspense | gripping | novel
Elley's Bookshelf: 13 Reasons Why by Jay Asher  Why I Loved It:  I watched the Netflix series after it was recommended to my by a friend. The book explores a much darker look inside each characters minds and how Hannah Baker lived her last days. | suicide | hannah baker | bullying | rape | ya | ya books

Synopsis:

Clay Jensen returns home from school to find a strange package with his name on it lying on his porch. Inside he discovers several cassette tapes recorded by Hannah Baker—his classmate and crush—who committed suicide two weeks earlier. Hannah's voice tells him that there are thirteen reasons why she decided to end her life. Clay is one of them. If he listens, he'll find out why. 

Why I Loved It:

I watched the Netflix series after it was recommended to my by a friend. The book explores a much darker look inside each characters minds and how Hannah Baker lived her last days.

Synopsis:

Krauss conjures an achingly beautiful and breathtakingly original novel about personal transformation that interweaves the stories of two disparate individuals—an older lawyer and a young novelist—whose transcendental search leads them to the same Israeli desert.

Why I Loved It:

This book makes you think. From Israel to Kafka, reading this book can change ones perspective of what we should be prioritizing and the losses we may have over the years should we fail to put first what should be there. 

Elle's Bookshelf: Forest Dark by Nicole Krauss  Why I Loved It:  This book makes you think. From Israel to Kafka, reading this book can change ones perspective of what we should be prioritizing and the losses we may have over the years should we fail to put first what should be there. | kafka | israel | priorities | life | lessons | life lessons
