I can't believe the end of March is here. This month has flown by. It felt like I didn't read much but I did read three books. I think We Are All Weird is the first Seth Godin book I've read. Of course I've read his blog posts and I'm familiar with him but I believe this is the first book of his that I've read cover to cover. Then I read Rosalie Lightning by Tom Hart. It is a graphic memoir and so, so good. It is a bit difficult to read though because the subject matter is so heart wrenching. Last I read My Name is Lucy Barton. I was ready for a good fiction book and this hit the spot.
This month I started Focus: The Hidden Driver of Excellence, An Unnecessary Women, and The Gutsy Girl but didn't finish. I also spent a lot of time looking through Death and Afterlife: A Chronological Journey, from Cremation to Quantum Resurrection. It has a really beautiful cover and was an interesting coffee table book.
I'll also give a little movie report for March. Even though the Oscars are over, I still want to finish up watching all the best picture nominees. I watched two of those and have just one left! I thought Spotlight was really good; I wasn't that into The Big Short. I also watched If I Stay. I read the book last year so I was curious about the movie. We were talking the other day about how it used to be that movies from books were always terrible, too much different than the book. I think overall they've gotten a lot better and If I Stay was almost as good as the book.
Zootopia was great and we will definitely be buying it when it comes out. I was pleasantly surprised by The Intern. And My Beautiful Broken Brain was the best documentary I saw this month.
I'll have to slow down on the movies in April. For one, I plan to be outside more but also this month we went over our internet usage allowance and got bumped up to the next payment plan. (Uh-oh!) So next month, it's redbox movies or none at all.
