📚Browse My Bookshelf – March 2017

Hi ladies!

giphy.gifI thought I’d get the Bookworm Brigade series started as a way to share what I’m reading, what I want to read, what I have read and am re-reading! I’ll also be talking alot about books that have inspired me, saw me through tough times, or simply gave me a good laugh and brought a smile to my face. Yes, I am a bit of a bookworm, and books have long been a significant part of my life, ever since childhood. Being the only child of busy parents, much of my free time was spent buried in a book, getting carried away with some story or another.

As you can imagine, that childhood love of mine stuck with me and I am a bibliophile through and through.


Anyway, on with the list! I picked these up at a recent book fair, along with a few children’s books for my young cousins.

An excerpt from the author’s synopsis of the book

1. Catherine the Great, CEO: 7 Principles to Guide & Inspire Modern Leaders – What caught my eye about this book is its link to a global historical figure. History was one of those classes I excelled at in high school and university because I saw it as more than just a class I needed to ace. It was an actual story to me, and an intriguing one at that. I’ve always been curious about life in times, cultures and societies past, and how life was different (or the same) for them. The fact that the book ties history with inspiration about leadership? Total win-win, I thought.

3. Jane Austen’s Mansfield Park – English novelist Jane Austen is one of my longtime favourite authors. I’ve read most of her classics (including Pride & Prejudice, Sense & Sensibility, Persuasion) but had only heard about this one, constantly forgetting to actually buy it. The cover, to me, is beautiful in its simplicity. Can’t wait to dive in to this story.

So there you have it; my must-read list of books (in no particular order) for this month! I’m currently in the middle of Emma (another Jane Austen classic) but almost at the end. Toying with the idea of doing a review on the blog before I dive into these. Which of the three do you think I should read first?

What’s currently on your bookshelf or to-be-read list? Let me know below!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

  • I love this post! I am a bibliophile on a temporary break as I can’t imagine having time to pick up a book at the minute with three kids under four lol. Soon! You have inspired me to try harder to fit reading back in. I would be tempted to start with the Jane Austen as I love her, but I would save her for in between the two books about the leaders to have a bit of a change. I reckon Catherine then Mansfield Park then Julius. Great choices of book and I look forward to hearing what you think 🙂

    • Thank you! I’m definitely going to do reviews on them!

  • I am always looking for new books! I may have to try these out!

  • echoesofhervoice

    I really love Jane Austen, so I’d say dive into that one first.

    I love your taste books. This post inspired me to pull out some classics when I get home today!!

  • I love Mansfield Park, it’s a little more understated than some of her other works but I think it’s very sweet and emotionally gripping, more mature in a way. You’ll love it!
