March Reading Wrap Up

March Reading Wrap UpMarch was a fairly middling month of reading for me. I completed eight books this month (not counting one book I didn’t finish) and most of what I read was average with a rating of a three, with one four star read, and ending strong with a five star read. I’m so glad to have ended March on a high note as I was starting to think I was on a streak of not picking the right books for me. That, combined with the weather finally starting to warm up, has me in a good mood with high hopes for what’s next!

Ready to see what I read and reviewed?

Books I reviewed:

The Mother-In-Law, by Sally Hepworth

The Mother-In-Law was a powerful and entertaining domestic suspense mystery.
dotted line separatorMy Brilliant Friend, by Elena FerranteI had mixed feelings about My Brilliant Friend; in the end, it just wasn’t the right book for me.
dotted line separatorThe Painted Veil, by W. Somerset MaughamThe Painted Veil was a morality tale that I enjoyed more than I expected to.

dotted line separatorLord of the Flies, by William GoldingLord of the Flies was an intriguing and disturbing book, but reading this once was enough for me to last a lifetime.

dotted line separatorLittle Darlings, by Melanie GoldingLittle Darlings was an unsettling, atmospheric, and creepy read.dotted line separatorThe Twelve Lives of Samuel Hawley, by Hannah TintiI can appreciate what The Twelve Lives of Samuel Hawley was trying to do but it wasn’t as compelling as I wanted it to be.

On the stack for next month:

April 2019 TBR

I’m hoping for a far better month of reading in April than I had in March! I have some review copies I’m excited to be picking up, along with a couple books from my shelf and some library books to round it out. I’m looking forward to reading all of these for different reasons and I’m hoping they all meet (or surpass!) my expectations. We’ll see how this goes… wish me luck!

What are you reading or planning on reading next?
