March 2023 Book Reviews

Ever go through a reading slump? This month was one for me for sure. Only 3 books completed, so this will be a very short & sweet book review post!

{Here are my posts from January & February.}


Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens

A read aloud that I did with my fifth grader, this story brought to life the time period we have been studying in history. The unimaginable hardships of Oliver & people like him are so foreign to our privileged lifestyles. You can't help but root for Oliver as he tries to escape one villain after another.

The Illustrated Little Pilgrim's Progress by Helen L. Taylor

A great way to introduce this classic story to young children. And the illustrations in this newer edition are so sweet! My daughter enjoyed it & I look forward to reading it again with my younger 2 soon.

The Rose and the Thistle by Lauren Frantz

Christian fiction - I have such a difficult relationship with this genre. This one isn't bad & Lauren Frantz is definitely on of the better authors. The historical setting was not as familiar to me, so I enjoyed learning a little more about the events of the Jacobite rebellion. The characters were likeable & the dialogue mostly believable. The Biblical themes were fairly well-integrated. Overall, I'd recommend it if you like this genre!
