March 2015 Reading Queue

 Reading Queue is a meme hosted by Book Tasty and Books: A True Story.
Welcome to the Reading Queue. 
Last month I have been getting focused and I have to say I am loving it.  I read and reviewed more books than I had planned.  So this month I am at a bit of a lost on what to read next.  I have two books on my queue that I know for sure I am going to read.  One is the book club book of the month and the other is a book from a series I want to finish.  The other books listed will be from my bookshelf.  The place where my reading should be focused.  Since I am not commuting this month I will be reading books more than listening to audiobooks. 
I have one audiobook to finish from last month and then I might get back to physical books for the month.
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.

So here is what I have lined up for the month of March. (Click the covers to go to the books Amazon page.)
Book Club Book of the Month
Hardcover: The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl by Issa Rae
In the bestselling tradition of Sloane Crosley’s I Was Told There’d Be Cake and Mindy Kaling’s Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?, a collection of humorous essays on what it’s like to be unabashedly awkward in a world that regards introverts as hapless misfits, and black as cool.
My name is “J” and I’m awkward—and black. Someone once told me those were the two worst things anyone could be. That someone was right. Where do I start?
Being an introvert in a world that glorifies cool isn’t easy. But when Issa Rae, the creator of the Shorty Award–winning hit series “The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl,” is that introvert—whether she’s navigating love, work, friendships, or “rapping”—it sure is entertaining. Now, in this debut collection of essays written in her witty and self-deprecating voice, Rae covers everything from cybersexing in the early days of the Internet to deflecting unsolicited comments on weight gain, from navigating the perils of eating out alone and public displays of affection to learning to accept yourself—natural hair and all.
A reflection on her own unique experiences as a cyber pioneer yet universally appealing, The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl is a book no one—awkward or cool, black, white, or other—will want to miss.
Completing the Series
Hardcover: March Book Two by John Lewis
I never buy book two in a series when I got book one for free but I might for this one because it isn't at the library yet. 

From My Bookshelf
Hardcover: 1-900-ANYTIME by Tracy Price-Thompson
 I got this one about 2 years ago from a book club book swap and I would like to get the dust off of it.  
 Here are my stats from last month.  I completed WOW'ed myself by reading 9 books and reviewing  of them all, but since I post one a week it will be spaced out a bit:
