What to Read in March

March is the month where we start hoping Winter is – finally – over. (Even though it has been a snowy start here where I live).

My Suggestions for What to Read in March

Nonfiction Suggestion for March:

The Backyard Homestead: Produce all the food you need on just a quarter acre!by Carleen Madigan. This is my favorite book for getting inspired to what a typical suburban yard can achieve.

I own this book, and now that we own a home, I may be ready to read through it again and get some ideas. (Although I’m a little restricted because of the slope in our yard and the fact that deer come right up to our deck.)

Bonus: this book includes a really great Blueberry Pie recipe. It has become a family favorite.

Maybe spring inspires you to start fresh, more than January 1st does. If so, you may want to check out this book:
Make it Happen: Surrender Your Fear. Take the Leap. Live On Purpose.by Lara Casey. (You can find my review here: 2015 is the year to Make it Happen.)

Or you might want to revisit my January reading suggestions.

Fiction to Read in March:

A Tree Grows in Brooklynby Betty Smith. This one made my list because of the title, but also because my oldest daughter just read it and loved it. The characters are memorable and the story is poignant. If you’ve never read it, maybe this would be a good month to give it a try.

Children’s Book Suggestion

Something about spring inspires my children to pull out our trusty Usborne Book Growing Things.

So far everyone in our immediate family seems to have a black thumb. But hope springs eternal. (No pun intended.)

What books would you recommend we read in March? What do you plan to read this month?
