March saw the return of an audiobook to my lineup (albeit, breifly).  I started out the month listening to Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk.  I've come to the conclusion I that I waver between liking David Sedaris and LOVING David Sedaris.  I have had times that I laugh so hard that I cry while reading him and I've seen him live and he is a certifiable hoot.  I now think there is only one way to know if I like him or love him and that is simply to just read more of him.  Look for that in the future.

The Little Paris Bookshop was recommended to me by a friend that I made at book camp last year.  She was right, this book was made for me.  Beautiful descriptions of France, books, love lost, and love found.  This book is essentially a how to book: How to mourn loss, how to open back up.  It's beautiful, it's philosophical, it's sweet.

The Girl Before is the newest in the Gone Girl, Girl on the Train school of books.  I'm beginning to think that the key to getting published is simply to write a mystery book with "girl" in the title.  That said, I did find this book to be entertaining.  Definitely a "borrow" from the library, quick weekend, or beach read.

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.  Wow.  If you are a feminist, if you want to raise a feminist, if you don't know if you are a feminsit... these are the perfect quick little reads for you!  I'm looking forward to reading fiction by this amazing woman!
