March Wrap-Up

Well, I can’t believe it. Another month has come and gone. Don’t they fly by so fast? I managed to read 6 books this month. Don’t ask me how, I’ll never know. The two previous months I’ve only managed to read 5 books, so 6 was a step up for me. Am I becoming a fast reader? Probably not, but I can dream right?

Some of the book this month were fantastic, others less so. So, without further ado here they are:

First up was ‘Glass Sword’ by Victoria Aveyard. Was this better than the first one? Yes. Does that make it great? No. It was a step in the right direction. Once again, it left on a cliffhanger so I couldn’t wait to start the next. (Link to read full review is on the photo)

Secondly was ‘King’s Cage’ by Victoria Aveyard. This was the best in the series so far. We got to see the story from different characters perspectives, which invigorated the story. Made it fresh. Also, I really enjoyed the plot. But I did have to take a little break after this one. (Link to read full review is on the photo)

Third Up this month was ‘The Girl in the Painting’ by Renita D’Silva. This was an ARC. This was one of my favourite books I’ve read this year. It was amazing. Such a brilliant story, so engrossing. Kept me hooked till the very end. Such a great historical fiction story. Renita has many books out and I can’t wait to read more. This comes up April 11th and you can preorder now.

The fourth book this month was ‘War Storm’ by Victoria Aveyard. This was the last in the series and after a little break I was ready to start it. It was by far the best in the series! So many different character perspectives. Excellent plot and storytelling. Until the end. That ending! I still don’t get it. It made me laugh out loud.

Fifth this month was ‘The Passing Tribute’ by Simon Marshall. I requested this book from Netgalley as it was Historical Fiction and I was excited to read it. But this book was awful. The worst book I’ve read in a while. It was uninteresting and pretentious. It was a struggle to read, to be honest. Female characters were a highlight of the book though.

Lastly was ‘One of us is Lying’ by Karen M. McManus. This book has been out for a while and it’s been on my TBR forever. I really liked this book. Interesting plot, kept me guessing till the end. I didn’t see it coming. Full of twists. A quick read. It was the perfect book to finish off the month.

So, there you have it. 6 books this month. Roll on April and more books to read.

Until the next review

  1. I haven’t read the Red Queen series yet but it’s on my shelf with loads of other series. One of Us is Lying is brilliant. Her latest book, Two Can Keep a Secret is even better in my opinion. Great wrap-up.

  2. Great effort. All brilliant books. I’m midway through a guide to narrative therapy and now I will be looking for hidden writer trauma in all the books I’m reading from here on out. Haha. Sounds like Red Queen needs to go on my list.
