March Wrap-up and April TBR

March, the month where I failed at blogging and reading. Basically.

March wrap-up

Reading recap

My March TBR:

  1. The Alloy of Law (Brandon Sanderson)
  2. Legion (Brandon Sanderson)
  3. More Happy than Not (Adam Silvera)
  4. Me Before You (Jojo Moyes)
  5. Lady Midnight (Cassandra Clare)
  6. Mitosis (Brandon Sanderson)
  7. It (Stephen King)

What I Actually Read:

Legion (Brandon Sanderson)

This novella was really fun to read, and it managed to tackle a lot of important issues.
4 star

Kindred Spirits (Rainbow Rowell)

Kindred Spirits is good, but not great. This short story reads like a pilot to a potentially interesting TV series, and that’s all you got, the pilot. If she ever decided to continue the story, I would definitely read that book. Nevertheless, the title is APPROPRIATE because this book is all about SPIRITS. It’s about being in a fandom and that feeling was captured perfectly by Rowell. Review here.
3.5 star

Jonathan Strange & Mr Norell (Susanna Clarke)

I wasn’t sure I would enjoy it because at first I didn’t find it that funny and I read a review that said, if the sample didn’t make you chuckle it’s probably not for you. However, as the story progresses the book got more and more interesting and I started to get the quirks and the humor. In the end, I enjoyed it so much I might have cried a little when I finished it.
 4 star

In the Woods (Tana French)

In the woods is the first book in French’s Dublin Murder Squad series. At first, I was reluctant to pick it up because I was worried it will be like all those interchangeable detective stories out there. I picked it up because this was the book that turned even the harshest reviewers into rabid fan. I’m happy to report that In the Woods is indeed a great psychological mystery. However, it puts more focus on the main characters than the mystery itself, that is probably why some readers were left disappointed.
4 star

More Happy than Not (Adam Silvera)

I didn’t cry – that’s new – but it doesn’t mean this book didn’t do its job. I’ll be posting a review of this book soon so stay tuned. For now, all I can say is that I am now a member of waiting-for-Adam-Silvera’s-next-book club.
4 star

The Alloy of Law (Brandon Sanderson)

I wanted to love it so much, but by the time I finished this book, I was still unsure if I love the book or not. I like it, for sure, but I am not yet feel attached to these new characters. The action sequences, however, are simply perfect. Full review coming soon.

April TBR

Here we go again.

  1. The Wrath and the Dawn (Renee Ahdieh)
    I already owned the book and the sequel comes out this month. Seems like the perfect time to jump in the hype train.
  2. Front Lines (Michael Grant)
    Please be good, please be good, please be good.
  3. The Scorpio Races (Maggie Stiefvater)
    It’s Fanboy Book Club book for April!
  4. Me Before You (Jojo Moyes)
    Carry-over from my March TBR
  5. Lady Midnight (Cassandra Clare)
    Because it’s currently sitting on the shelf feeling unloved and I need to get to it asap.
  6. The Likeness (Tana French)
    The second book in the Dublin Murder Squad series. Heard that this one is even better. Excited!
  7. The Winner’s Curse (Marie Rutkoski)
    Another book I already owned (it was 2.99 on Kindle and I’m a sucker for bargain price). Hopefully I enjoyed it as much as other people did.

Thank you for reading my blabbering. Until next time!

  1. The Scorpio Races is amazing, if you like the kind of novels with slow plot, amazing characters, well-developed settings and that whole ambience in the writing. Let us know if you enjoyed it! ☺️

  2. I loved Alloy of Law when I read it, but looking back I think part of why I enjoyed it so much had to do with the timing, it was just exactly the type of story I needed at that moment in my life. However, I think the characters of the new Mistborn books really come into their own in the most recent releases, and I’ve really enjoyed the direction it’s taken.

    Also, if anyone failed at reading in March it was me. 🙂 I only read two books. I’ve already read more than that this month, and it’s only the 9th!

    1. Good to know the series getting better with each new book! Will you say that Bands of Mourning is the best so far?
      LOL at least you managed to do some writing in March. 🙂
      I haven’t finished a single book this month (just got back from company meeting) so April wouldn’t be any better for me. haha.

      1. Yes, it’s a close call between Bands of Mourning and Shadows of Self, but I think in the end I preferred Shadows of Self.

        I just realized I’d thought one of the books I read in February was read in March. Meaning I read three books last month, not two. That makes me feel a little better, and yes, at least the time I could have been reading didn’t go to waste.

        Hope you have more reading time in the rest of April!

        1. Yay, so glad to know I have two great books waiting to be read. I had so many books I need to read (because I have purchased them lol) so yes hopefully I could get some reading done this April.
          Have a great reading month!
