In today’s post I’m sharing what I’ve been reading lately. Spoiler: it’s been some fun books from my childhood!
I figured I would still post about the books I read in March even though I’m a bit late. I love hearing about what other people are reading – it gives me so many good ideas of books to put on hold at the library or buy.
The Secret of the Old Clock and The Hidden Staircase
I bought the first ten Nancy Drew books on FB marketplace for a really good price. I remember reading these yellow and blue hardcover books when I was a kid. I was a huge reader and I read just about anything I could get my hands on. I’m pretty sure I read over 100 of the Nancy Drew books. Last month I read the first two books – The Secret of the Old Clock (affiliate link) and The Hidden Staircase (affiliate link). The books are definitely shorter than I remember, but I can see why I liked reading them. They’re quick an easy reads with a lot of action.
By the Shores of Silver Lake and The Long Winter
Continuing the childhood theme, I also read a couple of the Little House books. I got the whole series for Christmas and I’m slowly making my way through them. In March I read By the Shores of Silver Lake (affiliate link) and The Long Winter (affiliate link). I read at least a few of the Little House books as a kid. I very clearly remember my third grade teacher reading Little House in the Book Woods to my class.
Into Thin Air
I honestly wasn’t sure what to expect from this book. Written by a journalist who was a part of one of the expeditions on Mount Everest in May 1996, it covers the fateful few days when a storm blew in. As a result, many climbers lost their lives and more acquired injuries from the cold and exposure. Into Thin Air (affiliate link) covers the events that led up to the disaster as well as how decisions by various people on the mountain impacted the outcome. If you’re into climbing, adventuring, or the ethics of mountain climbing, I think you’d enjoy reading Into Thin Air.
The F*ck It Diet
This was my one and only DNF for the month. I just wasn’t feeling it and felt myself getting annoyed at the author multiple times. I’m thinking I may try reading it again down the road. Maybe I just wasn’t in the right frame of mind for it.
