March Wrap-Up & next month’s TBR

I had a very good reading month, again! I’m on a roll! I read a lot during my week long break in Austria, which was so much fun! I’ve gotten to a point that taking more than 5 days for one book feels like a lot, which is kinda weird because that is a completely normal amount for me. Maybe even a little fast. So let’s see what I read this month.

March Wrap-Up

  • A Quiet Kind of Thunder by Sara Bernard ★★★★★ This is such a cute book, I loved the representation and I weirdly connected to Steffi’s muteness. I’ve had a similar phase (a little less drastic though, but I barely ever talked).
  • Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo ★★★★★ I just spent half the book swooning over how awesome Nikolai is and the other half being dragged into this awesome story.
  • A List Of Cages by Robin Roe ★★★★★ This book is simply amazing, you have to read it! It has a great brothers-like friendship and it’s very sad and beautiful. It has great ADHD representation and deals with topics such as abuse and loss.
  • The Baker Street Peculiars by Roger Langridge ★★★★ This is a graphic novel set in the world of Sherlock Holmes and I loved the feministic aspect to it! It has great diversity and also has supernatural aspects to it!
  • Goodbye Days by Jeff Zentner ★★★★ This book was supposed to break my heart, but didn’t. It was still very beautiful and sad.
  • Geekerella by Ashley Poston ★★★★ It has the perfect level of cuteness and adorableness to make you smile all the way through the night as you keep reading until you’re finished.
  • Pure by Julianna Baggott ★★★★ I reread this book because I wanted to start the second book in the series, but I completely forgot what happened. I think it was a very good idea because I’m now reading the second book and I definitely needed a (large) reminder.
  • Simon Vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli ★★★★☆ This book was even better than The Upside of Unrequited. I simply couldn’t put it down!
  • In Ageless Sleep by Arden Ellis ★★★★ This is a wonderful short novella which is a futuristic Sleeping Beauty retelling set in space! The only reason I’m not giving it 5 stars is because it could have been more, I needed more of the world and characters!
  • Caraval by Stephanie Garber ★★★★ The huge hype around this book left me feeling slightly disappointing, I simply wasn’t as dragged into the story as I expected to be. It was quite good though and I will definitely continue the series.
  • Dumplin’ by Julie Murphey ★★★ It was a little “meh” for me, the characters weren’t really to my liking and the story was a little flat. Not a huge success.
  • Give Up The Ghost by Megan Crewe ★★★★ I technically haven’t finished this yet as I’m writing this (I’ve got two days to finish and it’ll be April), but I’m 99.9% sure it’ll be a 4 star read for me. It’s really good and I love the ghost aspect to it! It reads like a contemporary with paranormal elements to it.

Long list huh? I read so much!

Next Month’s TBR

This is what’s on my tbr this month! Rabiah: The Gift is an ARC, Fuse is the second book in the series I’m currently reading, the other books were voted on my twitter polls (I didn’t know what to put on there, but this seems like a good list!): More Happy than Not, A Monster Calls, Heartless and Six of Crows!

      1. Yes that’s right! Figuring out the points is quite complicated but I just do it once a month when I do my wrap up. Good luck!
