Reading List – March 2013

2 04 2013

Here’s a list of books I read in March – my personal reads – and their ratings.

The Fate of Mercy Alban – by Wendy Webb – 3 stars – I loved this story until the end.  The twist of what “really” happened could have been more realistic and made it a 5 star book.

The Civil War: Vol 1. Fort Sumter to Perryville by Shelby Foote – 5 stars – This was a book 3 months in the reading.  Very challenging to get through, but a very thorough and well written story of the events of the war.  I learned a lot here.

Love Drunk Cowboy by Carolyn Brown – 3 stars – Lite cowboy romance in typical Carolyn Brown fashion.

The Ghost Runner: The Epic Journey of the Man They Couldn’t Stop by Bill Jones- 5 star (My Review) – Really LOVED this one.  Inspiring and tragic.

The Other Side of the River by Robert D. Halpert – 3.5 stars (My Review) – Stonewall Jackson’s last days seen through the lens of his faith.

The Art Forger by Barbara Shapiro – 5 stars – Great book and depute.  Loved this one.

Master of the Mountain: Thomas Jefferson and His Slaves by Henry Wienck – 4 stars – Another facet of Thomas Jefferson who seems to be one of the most puzzling men in history.

The Book Whisperer by Donalyn Miller – 5 stars – A teacher’s method of inspiring her students on how to love reading.  Lots of good tips in it!

Last Hours on Everest: The Gripping Story of Mallory and Irvine’s Fatal Ascent by Graham Hoyle – 4 Stars (Review coming soon) – For Everest fans, this is Hoyle’s theory of what happened when Mallory Irvine disappeared up the mountain in 1924 and never returned based on research and his own personal experiences on Everest – Coming in May.
