I had another great reading month with SO many good books. I’ve already started on my summer reading list for you and I think many of these will make it. They are excellent!

All of these books are linked through bookshop (if available!) and I highly suggest shopping through there because it will support your local indie bookstore. You can choose the local bookstore to support! I support Penguin Books when I buy which is my fave here in Pittsburgh.
WHAT I READ IN MARCH 2023
Pineapple Street – 4.5 stars
What a fun read! I loved this one. The story follows a wealthy family and their life in NYC. It’s a great way to escape and see the insides of the life of the super rich – it’s also funny and heartwarming and the characters are so well done. It was a fairly quick light read and one I needed just to get away for a minute – but also puts some things in perspective for the family. Really liked it!
Just My Type – 4 stars
Oh I loved this one. It includes my favorite trope, second chance love. The story follows Lana who has jumped from relationship to relationship and then ends up working with her first true love. Some of it was a little predictable but it was just my kind of story! So lovely and light and enjoyable.
Someone Else’s Shoes – 4.5 stars
This is a fun one! It was a book of the month pick and I love this author. The story follows two women who accidentally switch bags at the gym. One is super fancy and rich while the other is trying to make ends meet. I LOVE how this story came together and the character development. It was relatable and funny – the perfect read!
The Sweet Spot – 4 stars
I loved this author’s previous book so I was super excited for this one and it did not disappoint. The story follows three women who come together after a baby is left at their doorstep. I LOVED THIS. It was such a heartwarming story and so well down. I loved how quirky and real the characters are.
Maame – 4 stars
Oh how I ended up loving this. I also got this in my book of the month box and was hesitant to read it because of the parkinson’s storyline. I am so glad I did though. The story follows a young girl who is a caretaker for her father – everything that comes along with that and also the intricacies of her parents culture. It’s so well written and while parts are very heartbreaking, I loved how this turned out. The family dynamics are wild.
I listed to this one as I’m a huge fan of memoirs that are read by the author. I will admit, it took me a bit of time to get in to. It seemed to jump all over the place and I had to get used to Paris’ voice. But I finished it and have to say WOW – so many people underestimate her and she has been through so much. Def worth a listen if you were coming of age in the early 2000s.
This was a re-read for me and I never count my rereads. Why? I don’t know! So this month I’m counting it. I read this when it first came out and loved it. As soon as I started the TV show, I reread it to remember. It was just as good if not better and I loved that I had a different picture in my head of the characters. This has always been a 5 star read for me.
