March Books


It was a slow month for books around here, but I got a couple in!

The Baker's DaughterThe Baker's Daughter by Sarah McCoy

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


This book was good, but it wasn't a book that I had a hard time putting down. I liked the characters, and I particularly enjoyed the parts of the story that took place during WWII. The story could have stood up on its own without the other plot of Reba and Rikki in the present. I almost feel like their portion of the story was unnecessary.


America's First DaughterAmerica's First Daughter by Stephanie Dray

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


I really enjoyed this book! As we all know, I love historical fiction, and I haven't read a lot of historical fiction based in America! haha I really enjoyed this story told from the perspective of Patsy Jefferson, Thomas Jefferson's daughter.

There was a lot of insight into the life of one of our founding fathers as well as the political and historical events of the time. I listened to this on Audible, and I looked forward to each listening session!

I read "The Baker's Daughter" as well, and I don't disagree that the story would have been fine without Reba and Rikki. I think the author was trying to draw parallels, but they didn't come across very strong.

It's been a super slow month for me, too... I am still only on page 76 of my latest Gabaldon book!
