SORRY THIS IS SO LATE! But yay for reading enough books to make a wrap up! I managed to read 5 books in March, and even though it’s not an alarming amount, I’m still really pleased with it because I am the slowest reader ever. (which I feel like I mention in every single wrap up of mine).
Blood and Sand by C.V. Wyk ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I read this during my attempt at a 24 hour readathon, and I can’t believe that it was in March? For some reason I feel like I read this months ago lol. (That’s also probably why you shouldn’t binge read a book in a day 😂) This was such an entertaining read for me, it has gladiators, female warriors, romance and kickass fight scenes. Plus the ending to this book was so crazy.
Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman ⭐️⭐️⭐️.5
I listened to the audiobook of this one AND I LOVED EVERY SECOND. Yes, my rating isn’t that high but I really think the audiobook enhanced my experience a lot for this one. Like the title says, this book is filled with a bunch of mythological tales, told in Neil Gaiman’s brilliant, lyrical writing. It was nice to be able to read one whole chapter or “story” and then take a little break to read the next tale later on. I highly recommend this to all you mythology lovers out there!
A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Another amazing read! Can you believe it, this was my first ever V.E. Schwab book, and I couldn’t be happier that I started with this one! If you didn’t know, ADSOM follows our main character Kell, who is known as an Antari for their ability to travel between 4 parallel Londons. It’s such a cool concept and V.E. Schwab excuted it perfectly. I did feel a bit iffy on some things, but you can read them more in detail in my review.
City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.25
I am so glad that I was able to complete a small chunk of my yearly goal, which was to complete The Mortal Instruments series. Yes, I still have one more book left to go, but I know for a fact that I’m actually going to follow through and finish it now. City of Lost Souls is definitely one of my favorites of the 4 I read so far, which I’m really pleased about. I felt like we mostly got a full development of our characters, and I really am going to miss a lot of them when the series is over. Review.
Circe by Madeline Miller ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ + favorite read!
Behold my favorite read of the month…(and one of my all time favorite reads EVER!) Am I really surprised that this book blew me away? No, I was expecting nothing but greatness from Madeline Miller. This story follows Circe, an immortal goddess born from the Titan Helios. Throughout the novel we follow her struggles and insecurities with fitting in with the immortals around her, as well as trying to come to terms with her love for mortal life. It’s a beautiful story of determination, growth, and the reality of eternity. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. (Especially if you’re into Greek Mythology) YOU NEED TO READ THIS! It comes out April 10, 2018! You can read my full non-spoiler review here!
Thank you guys so much for reading…I hope I managed to convince you to read at least one of these books, since I had a pretty great reading month! Let me know your favorite read of March!
