March Wrap Up
Lots of amazing books this month but sadly it didn’t end on a strong note. Free Food for Millionaires was probably too ambitious. At over 500 pages it was kind of a slog to get through. I thought I was in the mood for another family drama but it didn’t quite hold up to The Arsonists City. But no matter because the rest of the month was simply outstanding. I know Beloved isn’t an easy read but it’s truly one of the greatest American novels of all time and it’s a reading experience I will never forget. The Arsonist’s City is a book I’ve already recommended to several IRL friends. More thoughts on many of these soon. But March was special. I went to Manila to see my Lola and hung out with family. It was a really lovely trip and a time I will cherish. Sitting around with my Lola watching Filipino dramas and laughing is a memory I’ll fold into my heart forever. And I got to meet @ricetwicethrice!! I don’t know what April has in store but Spring Break is upon us in one more week!
