Before I go on a blog break to take a much needed family vacation, I wanted to share with you guys the books I read in March and April.  There were so many good ones!  And my heart skips a beat thinking about the amazing beach reads that are coming up in the next few months.

1. Favorite Book: I absolutely loved The Rose Code and Surviving Savannah---both outstanding examples of compelling historical tales. 

2.  Biggest Surprise: The Social Graces was a bit of a surprise to me in that I enjoyed it way more than I thought I would. I definitely want to check out Rosen's other novels in the future. 

3.  Biggest Disappointment: The Bookstore on the Beach was a bit of a disappointment. I was ready for a delightful beach read and it ended up being anything but. It took a dark turn!
4.  Favorite Post: Books on the Big Screen: The Woman in the Window

5.  Favorite Part of March & April:  The highlight has most definitely been getting vaccinated. I also have been recovering my surgeries and I am now ready to enjoy the upcoming summer!
