March reads

Pull of the Moon by Elizabeth Berg 3*....not her best....not sure it even deserves 3*

Icebergs by Elizabeth Johns 3.5* went over 3 different time periods, WWII, Vietnam War, and the 90's. I liked the first part of the story the best, the second almost as good, by the 90's I thought the story got boring.

Twenty Questions by Alison Clement 4*, not sure how plausible it was, but quite a page turner!

Dancing With Einstein by Kate Wenner 2*

Ride The Wind by Lucia St. Clair Robinson 5* The story of Cynthia Ann Parker, who was kidnapped by indians at the age of 9. Fascinating story, couldn't put it down

The Fiery Cross by Diana Gabaldon (audio) 4* loved the narrator's voice and her accents!

Like Dandelion Dust by Karen Kingsbury DNF,just too preachy, couldn't get into it.

Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult 4* interesting read, but not sure I bought the ending

Fatherland by Robert Harris 3* interesting concept (Hitler actually won) but the storyline itself wasn't that engrossing

These Is My Words by Nancy Turner 5* story set in the 1880's, heartbreaking and funny rolled into one fascinating novel

Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert (audio) just couldn't finish, got to disc 7 out of 10 but it's so BORING!!!

The Kitchen Boy by Robert Alexander 3*

The Persian Pickle Club by Sandra Dallas 3.5* had almost too many characters to keep track of, otherwise it was a good story set in the 1930's

Alice's Tulips by Sandra Dallas 4*

Blackbird by Jennifer Lauck 5*

The Glass Lake by Maeve Binchy 3*

Hannibal Rising by Thomas Harris (audio) 3*

Traveling Light by Katrina Kittle 4* heartbreakin story about a girl whose brother is dying

The Chili Queen by Sandra Dallas 3* not her best, but still a pleasant read

Invisible Girl by Tess Hudson 3* backlash 30 years after the Vietnam war. Not sure how realistic the story is, a lot of "bad ass" characters that I had trouble believing

Icy Sparks by Gwyn Hyman Rubio 3*, started strong but I didn't like the ending
