What I’ve Read – March 2024

Happy April Fools Day! It’s a new month, and that means a look back at reading for the last month.

March was a busy month with the Gippsland Wellness Expo taking up a lot of time. Most of my reading was by audiobook as I was also doing a lot of driving!

This is what I read in March:

  • Earthly Delights by Kerry Greenwood – I listened to this on audiobook and is one I’ve been meaning to read for a while. This one is quite different to the Phryne Fisher series and I enjoyed this one too.
  • Return to Cardamom by Julie Anne Grasso – the second in the series, I read the first many years ago and found this one when I was searching the shelves. A great read, and I’ll need to hunt out book 3.
  • The Cult of Romance by Sarah Ayoub – a YA book that is billed as a romance, and isn’t one. It’s more a coming of age story that looks at family identity and beliefs about who you are. A great story set in Australia and Lebanon.
  • Riz Chester: The Fingerprint Code by RA Stephens & Em Hammond – a middle grade book that was a lot of fun and one that would appeal to kids who like a mystery as well as the science behind solving them.
  • The Very Fairy Princess by Julie Andrews, Emma Walton Hamilton & Christine Davenier – I bought this picture book when I was writing My Princess Wears a Superhero Cape. This is a favourite of mine, showing kids they can be whoever they want to be.
  • The Gift of Life by Josephine Moon – Another audiobook to finish the month. I love the books by Josephine Moon and this one didn’t disappoint.

As always, I have a few books on the go right now, though I do need to find a new audiobook to listen to.

I hope you had a great reading month.
