I didn’t create a reading list for this year. Instead, I challenged myself to a reading challenge. You can read more about my 2015 Reading Challenge here.
This month I challenged myself to read at least one book on Time Management, but as I expected, I didn’t read just one book. However, I also didn’t read nearly as much as I’m accustomed to.
Here’s the list I read in March:
P.S. I Love You
– This is one of my favorite movies to watch, especially with my husband. I saw this book at the library a few weeks ago and thought I’d read the book. Usually the book is far better than the movie, but in this case, I happened to like the movie better. I was totally shocked. However, I loved the raw honesty of this book. I loved getting a look into the thought life of a grieving widow, and I loved observing more of her family dynamic than what the movie shows. It’s not a book I’d recommend per se, as there is some language in it that I wasn’t expecting. It’s quite shallow in some of the character developments, but a light read for me in a month full of the heaviness of life. I would give it a C- if I kept up with a grading scale.
10 Minute Time Management: The Stress-Free Guide to Getting Stuff Done
– I snagged this book on one of the Amazon deals for my Kindle. It’s written specifically to entrepreneurs, but I felt like although anyone would benefit from it. I picked up a few new tips and tricks for being more productive, but I would suggest reading this book with caution. We are an OVER productive society. We don’t have to fill every waking minute with something productive. Rest is also productivity! I felt a little overwhelmed by this book, but probably because I’m looking for margin and white space instead of more ways to get more done.
The Antelope in the Living Room
– This book comes highly recommended by many. I was told I would just love it. Can I say that I didn’t even finish it? It wasn’t that it wasn’t good. It had some pretty colorful story telling in it. I did laugh out loud a few times, but it wasn’t for me. I flat out didn’t care for it.
All in all my month of reading was a little disappointing to say the least. Granted I was moving across the country, going through a miscarriage, and countless other things. Reading just wasn’t a priority, which makes reading books that weren’t my favorite just a little more disappointing. I guess some months are just like that, huh?

I hate when I start a book that I expect to be AMAZING only for it to just not hit the mark! Sorry you had a “bad book month” ~ here’s to April!!
I read “The Fringe Hours” by Jessica Turner and it was a great book! I also read “The Secret Keeper” by Kate Morton along with my book club and it was so good, I went to our local used book store & purchased two more titles by her!
For April, I plan to get into at least one of those new Kate Morton books & whatever other books I splurge on next week while on vacation!
