Books to Read in March

While these are usually done in a video I thought I would switch it up and do a post instead. I'm not really mentioning a lot of books this month so I thought I'd make it a lot easier on myself and not get out the tripod to film. As you can see I'm not really aiming high with the amount of books to read this month, I'm just going to take it a bit easy.

The Chemist by Stephanie Meyer*
I'm only a few chapters in so far but I am enjoying it as well as being intrigued. The story follows an ex-agent of the U.S. government who was part of an agency so secretive it didn't have a name. When it was decided she was a liability she went on the run.  As she is on the run she takes on new aliases which are the name we the reader identify her as, her name changes as the story goes and so far I'm not confused which is good. While I'm only a few chapters in I will say it is written better than Twilight, so yeah.

The Glass Universe by Dava Sobel*
This book tells the stories of a group of remarkable women who were employed by Harvard College Observatory as 'Human Computers' to interpret the observations made via telescopes. I love real life stories about women doing amazing things especially set in a time such as the late 19th century where their role was typically home based. Before I started reading I thought the book would be chapters on each women, kind of like a biography. As soon as I started I realised I was mistaken, it's more like a narrative story with technical text book jargon thrown in about astronomy. Those parts trip me up, I have to take a while to read and understand it but that just makes me be amazed at these women who were able to do this type of calculations without the help of technology today. 

Archangel's Heart by Nalini Singh*
I will hopefully get to this book after The Chemist. It's part of the Guild Hunter series and I've only read one of them so far which I reviewed last March. I'm pretty sure each book is told from a different perspective. The one I read last year, Archangel's Enigma*, was from Naasir's while this one is Elena's. It's a fantasy novel which includes archangels, vampires etc. I read the other novel pretty quickly and enjoyed it so I'm looking forward to this edition to the series. 

I don't plan to read these this month, they're recent additions to my to-read pile and thought I would mention them. 

The Roanoke Girls by Amy Engel*
Beautiful, Rich, Myserious... The Roanoke girls seem to have it all. But there's a dark truth about them that's never spoken. Every girl either runs away or ends up dead. If that doesn't intrigue you I don't know what will. The story follows Lane, one of the lucky ones. She escaped eleven years ago but has to return to save her cousin. Anything with a good mystery gets me excited so I'm looking forward to this. It comes out today so you should definitely get yourselves a copy.

The Little Breton Bistro by Nina George*
As you may know anything to do with France I am obsessed with. This story follows Marianne who longs to escape her loveless marriage. She embarks on a final adventure to Brittany. She meets a variety of new people, gets swept up in new way of life and discovers and new version of herself. When her past comes calling she has to make a decision, to step back into the know or cast it aside for an exciting future. Aspects of this book are pretty much my dream. Move to France, become the person I want to be and be excited about life. Oh to dream. This book comes out early April so until then you can read Nina's The Little Paris Bookshop which I really want to get my hands on as it is once again my fantasy: Paris & Books.

What books are you planning to read this month?
