March 2016 Wrap Up

I am so late in posting this but since I skipped February, I decided to go for it anyway.  March was a very busy month!  The hubs, toddler and I went to California to visit my family and we had a blast.  Traveling was a bit tricky but once we got there, it was great.  It made me miss them even more than I already do!  I also applied and interviewed for a new job which I start next week.  It's exciting but I still have a ton of stuff to do to get ready.  I just need to keep swimming (the toddler has been watching a lot of Nemo lately!).

I am right on track with my reading goal this year.  I haven't been reading as many books as in passed years but I am taking a class this semester with a pretty heavy reading load so I am still doing a lot of reading.  I have read 14 books this year (out of my goal of 52) and goodreads.com says I am 1 book ahead of schedule. 

Here is what I read in March:

1.) At the Edge of the Orchard by Tracy Chevalier
2.) The Virgin's Daughter by Laura Andersen
3.) The Northern Queen by Kelly Evans
4.) No Greater Love by Danielle Steel
5.) The Captain's Daughter by Leah Fleming

My March stats were:

-5 books read
   -0 non-fiction
   -5 historical fiction
   -2 review books
   -3 library books
   -0 books I own
   -2 ebooks

My reading goals also including reading books I own which I failed at miserably this month.  I also want to focus more on reading non-fiction this year; my stats for the month reflect that I haven't been successful at that.  However, the class I'm taking is on the Holocaust and everything I am reading is non-fiction so I think that counts for something. 

Since the year is a 1/4 of the way over, I thought I would share my year to date stats too:

-14 books read
   -3 non-fiction
   -9 historical fiction
   -3 review books
   -7 library books
   -4 books I own
   -9 ebooks

Hopefully by the time 2016 is half over, I will have upped my non-fiction and books I own numbers!

I hope you all have a great day!  What did you read in March?
