Before I set out to start writing this post, I didn’t think I had read that many books or that I’d had a good reading months. But seven books isn’t that bad and two of these I have also reviewed too. March has been a weird month, but April is probably going to be worse. Hopefully, I can get some more reading done. I’ve been in isolation for two weeks now and I have only been able to read one book (and it took me the whole month to read), so I’m hoping now that I am adjusting to isolation that I can get back into reading.
A Strangely Wrapped Gift by Emily Juniper
I thought this was a great poetry collection that discussed mental health in detail and how it impacts day to day life. You can check out my review here.
Chain of Gold by Cassandra Clare
It is no surprise that I loved this book. It was nice to revist some old character, but see how they’ve grown and to get to know their children. Cassandra Clare never disappoints and with every one of her releases they get better and better. I can’t wait for the second book to come out in a years time. 5/5 stars.
Dear Girl by Aija Mayrock
I was thoroughly impressed with this poetry collection. You can check out my review here.
Autoboyography by Christina Lauren
I finally got round to finishing this book! I started it in January but put it to one side for a couple of months. I did enjoy it while reading it, but now looking back at it, I didn’t think of it as a memorable story. I remember that throughout the story they were writing a book, but I can’t even remember what the characters were called without looking it up. That could just be my terrible memory though, as I do struggle to hold information about books anyway, but this seems even less memorable to me right now. 4/5 stars.
Scythe by Neal Shusterman
I was amazed by Scythe by Neal Shusterman. I had always heard good things about this book, but I had never gotten round to picking it up until now. I think I have told everyone I know about this book now, because the concept is just so strange to me but Shusterman made it work. I can’t wait to get round to the other two books in the series. 5/5 stars.
Nocturnal by Wilder Poetry
This was a reread for me. I had to go back and rewrite a review, so had to read it again. I had the same feelings as I did the first time which was that its a lovely read, but personally I think it lacks originality. 3/5 stars.
All The Bright Places
I finally finished All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven. I started reading this back in 2017, but never got round to finishing it. I decided to pick it back up earlier this month because I saw that the film was coming out, now that I’ve finished it I can add the film to my to-watch list. I doubt I will get to it any time soon. 4/5 stars.
What did you read in March?
