My Little Pocketbooks: March Reading Queue

March Reading Queue

I am back with my Reading Queue for the month of March. Reading Queue is hosted by Book Tasty and Books: A True Story.  Click the covers to read more about the books.  I might have to do a read-a-thon to get caught up.  I am feeling like I am not reading enough.  This new job is messing up my perfect schedule.
What is the reading queue all about?
Reading Queue is a monthly meme where you share what books you plan to read for the month. You can hop to other blogs and see what others are reading and maybe find someone reading the same thing as you! Or you can ask for people to vote on what you should read next if you can’t decide.
Book Club Pick for March
Wrapped in Rainbows: The Life of Zora Neale Hurston
A woman of enormous talent and remarkable drive, Zora Neale Hurston published seven books, many short stories, and several articles and plays over a career that spanned more than thirty years. Today, nearly every black woman writer of significance -- including Maya Angelou, Toni Morrison, and Alice Walker -- acknowledges Hurston as a literary foremother, and her 1937 masterpiece Their Eyes Were Watching God has become a crucial part of the modern literary canon.
Wrapped in Rainbows, the first biography of Zora Neale Hurston in more than twenty-five years, illuminates the adventures, complexities, and sorrows of an extraordinary life. Acclaimed journalist Valerie Boyd delves into Hurston's history -- her youth in the country's first incorporated all-black town, her friendships with luminaries such as Langston Hughes, her sexuality and short-lived marriages, and her mysterious relationship with vodou. With the Harlem Renaissance, the Great Depression, and World War II as historical backdrops, Wrapped in Rainbows not only positions Hurston's work in her time but also offers riveting implications for our own.

 Off My Shelf
Adé by ( I never got to it last month so I will give it a shot this month)

One Fifth Avenue
I have had this book for decades.  I bought it solely based on the cover because I didn't know who Candace Bushnell was back then.  That was before I feel in love with Sex and the City.  Funny thing is I never read any of the books just loved the TV shows.  Still in love with this cover.

Still Reading
The Aloha Quilt 
Just now getting back into this one.  I put it down for a bit then next thing I knew the month was over.

Turn up the Heat 
Now that I am done with most of it I have to do it.  Drink way more water and start the meal plans.  First clean out the kitchen of all the things I won't be eating anymore.  *sigh*
