March Reading Wrap Up

March 2018 Reading Wrap Up

March was a great reading month for me! I read books in a wide variety of genres, from fantasy to contemporary to mystery and more. This month was a bit heavy on review copies for me, but I managed to fit in a few just for fun reads and books I’ve been looking forward to for some time now. Only one five star book this month, but that’s one better than February!

Ready to see the list?

section separatorBooks I read and reviewed:

The Fifth Season, by N.K. Jemisin

The Fifth Season is a metaphor that works on multiple levels and is well worth a read.dotted line separatorSometimes I Lie, by Alice Feeney

Alice Feeney’s debut novel Sometimes I Lie started out strong and only got better!dotted line separatorNothing Left to Burn, by Heather Ezell

Nothing Left to Burn, a compelling coming of age story, was impressive for a debut.dotted line separatorThe Broken Girls, by Simone St. James

The Broken Girls was an engrossing page turner with incredible atmosphere and heart.dotted line separatorThe Eye Opener, by Indrajit Garai

I didn’t necessarily dislike the short stories in The Eye Opener, but I did find it hard to engage with them.dotted line separatorRed Sparrow, by Jason Matthews

Fans of spy thrillers will enjoy digging into the details of the trade in Red Sparrow; if you prefer your spy stories with more action and a faster pace, try the movie instead.dotted line separatorProdigy Prince, by Natasha Sapienza

Prodigy Prince is a Christian allegorical fantasy with plenty of action, adventure, and intrigue.section separator

Books I read but haven’t reviewed yet:

The Obelisk Gate, by N.K. Jemisin

The Obelisk Gate had a “second book” feel to it in that it’s not quite as groundbreaking as the first and spends a lot of time setting up for the finale, but it does this job so well.dotted line separatorWarcross, by Marie Lu

Warcross was entertaining if somewhat predictable; listening to this on audio was a fun experience!dotted line separatorthe-woman-in-cabin-10

The Woman in Cabin 10 was entertaining in the moment but forgettable after the fact.dotted line separatorThe Liberty Box, by C.A. Gray

A dystopian that starts to bridge the gap between YA and adult fiction, The Liberty Box has an intriguing and chillingly realistic premise.section separator

On the stack for next month:

April 2018 TBR

Technically, I’m already reading some of these books. I started a readalong of IT in March; between the incredible length and the fact that I refuse to read this when it’s dark outside this has been slow going. And after buddy reading The Fifth Season, we decided to marathon through the rest of the trilogy and I’m in the middle of The Stone Sky as well. But! I have some fun new ARCs this month to look forward to and I. Will. Read. Dragon. Coast. This. Month. Ironically, it will be the month I have another book to read with “Dragon” in the title!

What are you reading or planning on reading next?

  1. Wow, you sure did go through some really amazing books; and you even plan on getting through some really great books too! N.K. Jemisin is definitely an author I need to explore ASAP myself. Hope The Stone Sky is really good so far! Happy reading! 🙂
