It’s March 9 and I feel so late to this reading list party but heeeeeeere I am with a new book list! I was really excited to pull these books off my shelves and assemble a new stack to tackle. I don’t expect to finish everything because I am a mood reader and sometimes a book just won’t be right for me on a given day or week. BUT I do want to at least start many of these and if a couple are a slow burn, so be it!
Without further ado, here’s my March reading list!

Print books in alphabetical order:
This was my BOTM pick last December. Set during WWII, a wheelchair-bound girl who grows up in the circus and is fascinated with science and medicine, will one day find herself made to perform in a town that the Nazis set up for the Jews. Yowza. International Bestseller – I’m really looking forward to this one!
Considering how long I’ve had this book, I should have read it a long time ago. I follow Gregoire on Instagram and so appreciate the work she does. I read a ton of Christian books on dating and purity and whatnot while I was single and now as a married woman, navigating the world of Christian marriage books has been…interesting. There’s been some recent evaluation of some of the effects of purity culture and, having grown up in that era as a homeschooler, I’m super interested in the current conversation. I’ve discovered how much I truly didn’t know what I didn’t know. This book is just one of a few on my list (and shelves) that I want to dig into this year!
I also have the audiobook version of this title so if I’m short on time, I may listen to this book.
2023 Monthly Key Word Reading Challenge – Wait
This is a new-to-me book and I cannot wait to read it because I think it will be perfect for the season I’m currently in! It’s endorsed by and was recommended by names I trust (something I pay close attention to when choosing spiritual growth/Christian living books). All in all, looking forward to it!
Okay, so I wasn’t a huge Full House watcher as a kid nor have I finished watching Fuller House but I love Candace Cameron Bure. There are a few celebrities that I imagine I’d like to meet and maybe hang out with and even fewer who I’d genuinely like to be friends with. Candace is one of those women I think it’d be so cool to be friends with.
I’ve had this book on my shelf for awhile and it’s time I read it since I’m really wanting to lose some weight and be healthier and just feel a bit more comfortable in my own skin. I read Kind is the New Classy awhile back and thoroughly enjoyed it! I have no doubt I’ll love this one too!
I also have the audiobook version of this title so I may listen to this book.
This book has been on my TBR for years and I just got a second-hand copy for my shelves. I’ve been meaning to read more Lewis. I read Mere Christianity awhile ago and really enjoyed it. This is a classic and I’m looking forward to finally digging in!!
I know very little about this book except for the fact that it won BOTM book of the year in 2022 and it’s about friendship and love among many other things. I’ve heard that it might be a tear-jerker which is something I appreciate more and more the older I get. I think a good story should have the power to illicit deep emotion and deep thoughts. While I do want to read it, it’s sort of lower on my priority list so I’m not going to stress if I don’t get around to it!
The 52 Book Club’s 2023 Reading Challenge – time in the title
Also listening to…
I actually already finished this book on March 1st and I’ll review it in my wrap up next month but I can say right now that I HIGHLY recommend you add it to your own reading list this month!! Read it in print if you’d like but I do commend the audio book to you. Moore reads it and it’s just such a treat to hear her heart come through as she tells her story!
Phylicia Masonheimer is one of my favorite follows on Instagram and this book is both the essence & culmination of her ministry work thus far. I’m actually listening to this book today as I’m going about my tasks and so far, it’s so good and so helpful and, in Phylicia style, so easily comprehensible & digestible. It’s not a long book so I expect to finish it this week. Aaaaaaaand, while I am listening to the audiobook, I fully intend to buy a hard copy for my shelves for reference.
Okay, I feel like this is going to be a slow burn because there’s soooooooo much to absorb. There are some non-fiction books that, while they do well on audio, they deserve another go ’round in print so you can see and underline and highlight and take notes. This is one of those titles. I’m listening to it little by little because if I go too long, my mind will wander and I’ll miss huge chunks of information! It is really interesting so far and I’m enjoying it!
What’s on your reading list this month?
I don’t know if I can pull this off but I’m going to try!! Now I need to go finish the rest of my work so I can pick up one of these books and get to reading!
Happy March reading, Friend!
