I didn’t finish as many books as I had wanted in March, but I am really happy that I made a dent in my list of Netgalley approved titles. According to Goodreads I’m currently four books behind schedule so that’s a bit daunting, but I know that is because I have been focusing on the A Court of Thorns and Roses series, and they are quite thick books. So fingers crossed I can get back on track soon.
But without further ado, here is what I read in March, and what I plan to read in April.
- The Student by Iain Ryan. 2.5 stars. This was an interesting albeit strange read, very different to what I expected from the blurb. There were times I thought about DNF-ing the book but I persisted and it definitely took a few turns I did not see coming.
- I Have Lost My Way by Gayle Forman. 3.5 stars. I enjoyed this, however, it wasn’t what I was expecting it to be. I’m a fan of her If I Stay series but this was a bit all over the place at times but overall very enjoyable.
- Beneath the Skin by Melissa James. 4 stars. This was so good, probably the best Australian novel I have read especially from Netgalley. I think I will be looking into more books from Melissa James.
- A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas. As I’m writing this I have already finished this book, I didn’t quite finish by the end of March, but the first week of April and I absolutely devoured the ending. Full review coming.
- Sea of Strangers by Lang Leav. This is taking me longer to read than I expected. Mostly because everytime I go to read it I start crying because it hits my heart with so much truth especially since I am still recovering from my break up and this just brings up all those feelings. But this month I am aiming to be finish it.
- A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas. I am aiming to have this finished by the end of the month, but considering that its about 699 pages long, I’m not so sure about that. I just want to be done by the time my preorder box for A Court of Frost and Starlight arrives, however, that might not be until the 10th of May so as long as I’m done by then I’ll be happy.
- The Marvelous Adventures of Gwendolyn Gray. This is a Netgalley eARC that I’m reading during my lunch breaks at work, i usually quite enjoy Middle Grade books but this is tougher because it reads very young. It feels like it’s trying to emulate Lemony Snicket’s books but isn’t hitting the same humourous marks. But I am willing to persist because the story is intriguing.
- One Dark Throne by Kendare Blake. If by some miracle I finish A Court of Wings and Ruin before the end of the month I will dive into this because I thoroughly enjoyed the first book and can not wait to see what happens next.
