Wrapping it Up! March 2018

My March, in books and more

What a month. My daughter had major back surgery this month and life took a big pause as we rally around her to support her healing. There was lots of downtime as she slept and rested. Thankfully, my brain let me escape into reading.

Books Read

  • Lincoln in the Bardo by George Sanders
  • Giant Days, Issue 36 by John Allison
  • Saga, Volume 1: by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples
  • Saga, Volume 2: by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples
  • Saga, Volume 3: by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples
  • The Doll’s Alphabet by Camilla Grudova
  • The Food Explorer: The True Adventures of the Globe-Trotting Botanist Who Transformed What America Eats Daniel Stone
  • Moxie Jennifer Mathieu
  • Saga, Volume 4 Brian K. Vaughan
  • Saga, Volume 5 Brian K. Vaughan
  • Saga, Volume 6 Brian K. Vaughan

My favorite reads of the month were Lincoln in the Bardo by George Sanders (my review!) and The Food Explorer by Daniel Stone. It was so much fun to revisit the Saga comic and read way beyond the point I had originally stopped.

These were fun

How I Met My Favorite Books by Paper Fury totally made me think about how I “met” my favorite books! Also made me want to reread a few.

Kim at Sophisticated Dorkiness and Alice at Reading Rambo  have a new nonfiction podcast! Goes right to my nerdy heart.

My favorite new recipe of the month was this delicious Tomato, Basil, and Fresh Mozzarella Tart.

Here’s hoping April is AMAZING.

  1. How’s your daughter doing? She’s so lucky to have you around during her recovery. And it looks like you have been doing amazing reading — there’s never enough Giant Days in my life, tbh. Every time I go to the library, I peer suspiciously at the New Graphic Novels section wishing there’d be a new Giant Days trade paperback there.

    1. She is doing GREAT, thanks for asking. Nothing like a little spinal rearranging to slow ya down, but we’re 4 months post op and the little granny (her words) is starting to get moving.

      There can NEVER be enough Giant Days. NEVER.
