March runs and reads

March runs: 91.5 miles.  A lower month for me but with RSV, Leo’s ever-lasting stomach bug, travel for Easter, and everything else some runs just didn’t happen!

March reads:

  • Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) by Mindy Kaling (nonfiction)
  • Sweet Tooth by Ian McEwan
  • Summer’s Child by Diane Chamberlain
  • Bossypants by Tina Fey (nonfiction)
  • The Elephant Keepers’ Children by Peter Hoeg
  • The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky

Mindy and Tina’s memoirs were both very funny and great to read.  Summer’s Child was pretty fast and engrossing – I haven’t read tons of Diane Chamberlain but I dub her excellent for roadtrips, plane trips, or just when you want a book to zone out and fly through.  They’re not meaty books, but they really keep you interested!

The Perks of Being a Wallflower was probably the best book of the month.  It’s super intense, emotional, and raw.  I know there is a movie (reportedly very good) but the emotion of the book is so strong that I’m not sure I could handle it in movie-form.  Have you seen it?

What have you been reading (or running)?  Spill!

  1. I haven’t seen that movie! The first book listed sounds really interesting to me!

    I started reading Salt, Sugar, Fat (non-fiction) at the beginning of the month, but didn’t get very far. I should be studying, lol.

  2. I have seen the movie. It was very good. I remember the same emotions watching it that you describe with reading it. It’s on my list to read.

  3. I saw the movie and truly liked it. From what I hear, though, the book is way more intense! The movie is also intense, but overall pretty tasteful and beautiful. I think you’d like it!
