March has been a hectic month for me with university, editing and bookstagram. I managed to crack 900 followers, I finished editing Taylor‘s novel, and I’m already drowning in assignments. However I did manage to squeeze in some books to tide me over and keep me sane. I did a buddy reading of Gemina with some lovely people on bookstagram such as Beth, who has been an absolute gem to me. I also finally finished the Grisha trilogy with Shelby and she is one of the sweetest people you’ll ever meet.
So, without further ado and ramblings from moi, here is my March wrap up with their respective reaction gifs that sum up how I felt about them.
March Wrap Up
Gemina by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman: 5/5
This book destroyed me. I’m deceased.
Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo: 4/5
It all came to an end and it was brilliant! It was lovely to travel along with Alina as she uncovered who she truly was, and made those hard decisions that would shape Ravka forever.
Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor: 5/5
Holy smokes, I wish I had written this book. It was so rich with mythology, fantastic characters and world-building. It’s an adventure I can’t wait to continue.
Reread of Fury by Charlotte McCognaghy: 4/5
One of the best dystopian novels I’ve read in a long time. I never reread books unless they were damn fabulous and this one was just that.
I can’t believe I only read four books. I’m shocked! The fact they were all fantasy or sci-fi as well is a testament to the genres I typically indulge myself in. I have no shame. March was a good month for me though, with two books receiving 4 out of 5 and one with 5 out of 5. Just a brief shout out to Gemina for breaking my heart just like its predecessor. I am still shooketh from how freaking amazing it was. Also a quick mention to Daughter of Smoke and Bone for being magical in every single way.
Please welcome my TBR, which only holds three books because I don’t want to place such high expectations on myself.
Burial Rites by Hannan Kent – I will actually finish this, I promise.
Caraval by Stephanie Garber.
The Book of Lost Things by John Connelly – a great recommendation from my gal pal, Ally @the.imperfect.library.
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo – Since I’ve finished the Grisha trilogy, it’s time to dive into the other series based in the Grisaverse.
I’m so excited to be reading these books! Leave me a comment down below with what’s on your April TBR!
Until next time,
