With Style and a Little Grace: 2018 MARCH READING


Happy Tuesday y'all - I got my hair trimmed today and I swear it feels ten pounds lighter. Anyone else feel like that adds a little pep in your step? I did not get much reading done in March but the books I did read, I really enjoyed. I have been trying to start My Husband's Wife for two weeks now - really hoping to make a dent in my April reading this weekend. What are you currently reading? Would love any recommendations for my running list. 

-The Child by Fiona Barton - An old house is being demolished in a desolate neighborhood in London and a worker uncovers the body of a small child. Journalist Kate Waters begins to investigate this child and who they were. As a crime from decades before comes to light, she delves deeper into the past. We follow several narratives throughout the book as we piece together how they are involved. You won't see the ending coming - highly recommend! 

-Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng - Shaker Heights is the perfect all American neighborhood. Everything is planned out from the streets to the lives of the families that live on them. The Richardson family is the epitome of the neighborhood. When Mia Warren and her daughter come to town and begin renting at the Richardson's rental home the town is suddenly a very different place and new points of view come into play. Especially surrounding an adoption battle. What are the secrets in Mia's past? This one was slow at first but I loved it once I got into it. Great read. 

-The Fifth Petal by Brumonia Barry - Give me a book about Salem and witches and I am sold. This one did not disappoint. If you loved A Discovery of Witches, read it! A teenage boy dies in a strange incident on Halloween involving the local historian and local looney Rose Whelan. Salem's Chief of Police John Rafferty must investigate and he is linked back to Salem's most publicized cold case " The Goddess Murders." Three women all descended from Salem witches were brutally murdered and all these women had been taken in by Rose. Callie Cahill, the daughter of one of the women and the only survivor besides Rose will come back to town and will try to help prove Rose's innocence. Fun and easy read.
