Books to Read in March 2020

Hello Readers, this is the first day of March 2020 and I have prepared a book list to read this month. As I am a slow reader, I thought of reading 5 books in a month. This is my reading challenge for myself. I have chosen random books from the public library 📚 nearby.

I know reading is a good habit and I am trying to inculcate this habit in myself. Seeing me reading, my kids have also started reading books 📚 on a regular basis. They also pick books from library and enjoy selecting and reading books.

Here I am listing the books that I am going to read this month and I will also share the reviews of these books in my upcoming posts.

This is the first book that I will be reading. I found the reviews for this book very interesting so I thought of picking this book. I am sharing few reviews here for you all.

“(Bowler) delivers raw emotion, realistic description, and candid assessments…….An inspiring story of finding faith— in God, in family, and in oneself—while the walking close to the Valley of the Shadow of Death.”

— Kirkus Reviews

“This is a beautifully written, intelligent, soulful book, necessary reading for all of us who long to walk faithfully and honestly through the darkest and most desolate of seasons.”

— Shauna Niequist, New York Times bestselling author of Present Over Perfect

I found the title of this book quite interesting. The title was so compelling that I couldn’t resist myself from picking up this book. I mean how can we trust anyone when he is lying? Strange.

“Clever as hell and as timely as it gets, this is definitely one of the must-reader thrillers of the season.”

— J.P. Smith, author of The Drowning and If She Were Dead

“An outstanding debut—confident, compelling, with a surprise around every corner. I loved it.”

— Jane Harper, New York Times bestselling author of The Day

“The Little Prince” the title and the cover of the book looks as if this book is for kids or teenagers. This is my first translated book that I am going to read. This book is a English translated version of Le Petit Prince in French.

I have a strong connection with air, I think. The topic of my Ph.D. research work was also “Air”. So this was a great pick up for me. Second thing that forced me to pick up this book was the reviews. The author of this book is no more. I was so sad when I got to know this. Let me share some reviews with you.

“Rattling, heartbreaking, and ultimately beautiful, the too-young Dr. Kalanithi’s memoir is proof that the dying are the one who have the most to teach us about life.”

—Atul Gawande

“Thanks to When Breath Becomes Air, those of us who never met Paul Kalanithi will both mourn his death and benefit from his life. This is one of a handful of books I consider to be a universal donor—I would recommend it to anyone, everyone.”

— Ann Patchett

Whenever I pick books, one non-fiction book is a compulsion. I don’t know why, but this the way I am. I like reading non-fiction books to keep myself up to date. I think we should read non-fiction books to as they provide knowledge to us.

“Green Planet…How Plants Keep the Earth Alive” is a book of Environmental Science. I love reading such books. I hope this book will help me coming close to nature. Here are the reviews.

“If you are not convinced of the critical value of plants to people, you will be after reading Stanley Rice’s Green Planet. Rice’s expertise, paired with his engaging style, awakens readers to the importance of environmental services provided by plants.”

— Sir Ghillean Prance FRS, Scientific Director, The Eden Project

“Stanley Rice writes with charm and clarity. Not since Corner’s Life of Plants has there been a contestant for this role in the world of scientific publishing about plants for general readers.”

— Steward T.A. Pickett, Distinguished Senior Scientist and Project Director, Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies

I will be happy to know if anyone of you have read any of these books. Please share with me if you have done so. I hope this month will be a month full of joy, happiness, peace and good health for all of us. Wishing you all a happy month ahead.

Thank you all 🙏🏻🙏🏻.
