It’s no secret there’s been quite a bit of change in our lives this past month. Moving cross country, temporary housing, selling a home, moving again into more permanent housing…the stress of it all can take a toll. However, that’s why books have such a special place in my life. For a few minutes or if there’s time, a few hours, they can whisk you away to far away places and people and circumstances. This month (and let’s be honest, most months!), I’ve needed the mental vacation that books provide. Can you relate? I’m sharing the books I’ve read, one I’ve stopped, and what I bought this month below. As always, I’m linking up with Modern Mrs. Darcy, and I encourage you to check out her post for all kinds of new books for your spring reading from bloggers across the web.

Dead Wake: The Last Crossing of the Lusitania by Erik Larson – Reading an Erik Larson book has been on my list for quite some time. Dead Wake did not disappoint. Meticulously researched, about a true event, this book reads like a novel and though you know the tragic end, Larson propels you forward with his writing so much that I didn’t want to put this one down. Just my kind of book: exciting yet informative! (4/5)
