I had an amazing reading month in March and while I didn’t read as many books as February I am really happy with what I did manage. What I did read I really enjoyed, which is always a positive. Hopefully I can carry on this reading streak into April.

A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas
I loved re-reading A Court of Mist and Fury ahead of the latest release in the series. One thing that I adored was re-discovering some of my favourite characters and remembering all of the small details that I had forgotten. This is a series that I will continue to love even more upon each re-read.
A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas
As part of my re-read I also got to read A Court of Wings and Ruin. There was so much of this book that I had forgotten, so it was brilliant to find everything out once again. I think it is also a brilliant book to love back on with hindsight, knowing what I already know about characters.
A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J. Maas
I didn’t read A Court of Frost and Starlight when I first read the series. So it was great to read this short novella. I don’t think it is Sarah J. Maas’s best work, but I think it serves its purpose of setting up A Court of Silver Flames. The best way that I can describe it is like a Christmas special of a TV show, where you don’t get a great amount of plot, but you get to enjoy being back with the characters.
The Midnight Library by Matt Haig
I had heard amazing things heading into The Midnight Library, and it did not disappoint. The Midnight Library concept was something that I had heard about before, so it was amazing to see it on the page. My only issue was that I didn’t like the main character, so it detracted from my enjoyment. I also found myself getting secondhand embarrassment from some of her decisions, which made me feel uneasy.
Truthwitch by Susan Dennard
Truthwitch is a series that I have meant to get to for months, and I finally managed it. I really enjoyed this book much more than I thought I would and can’t wait to see what the sequel will bring. I loved the characters and the relationships between them, especially the sisterhood between Safiya and Iseult. The only small issue that I had was that I would have loved a greater explanation of the magic system and some of the other powers that people could have.
Clap When You Land by Elizabeth Acevedo
Clap When You Land is only the second book that I have read in verse and the first book that I have read by Elizabeth Acevedo. I really enjoyed Clap When You Land and loved the pacing of it. I also loved the range of topics that were covered within the book, and they were all dealt with really sensitively. The only issue that I did have was that I found the two main characters were blurring into one, and I found it hard to differentiate between them. I can’t wait to discover some more of Elizabeth Acevedo’s work.
Take a Hint, Dani Brown by Talia Hibbert
I didn’t think it would be possible for me to love a Talia Hibbert book more than I loved Get a Life, Chloe Brown, but I was proved wrong. I love Dani and Zaf and the support that they had for each other. Talia Hibbert has an amazing writing style, and if feels as if you are being told the story by a friend rather than reading it. I can’t wait to pick up Act Your Age, Eve Brown; fingers crossed I love that just as much.
Karolina Dalca, Dark Eyes by M. R. Noble
I wasn’t sure what to expect heading into Karolina Dalca, Dark Eyes as I only knew that it was a paranormal romance. While I did enjoy the story, I just wanted a little bit more from it. I liked the main character Karolina, and found that I connected with her, but I didn’t like either of her potential love interests. I am curious to see where the rest of the series will go, so I will definitely be carrying on.
What Beauty There Is by Cory Anderson
The final book that I read in March was What Beauty There Is by Cory Anderson. What Beauty There Is was the first YA thriller that I have read for a long time, and I thoroughly enjoyed my time. My favourite part was the sibling relationship between Jack and Matty and the level that Jack would go to protect Matty. I can’t wait to see what Cory Anderson will write next as I will definitely be picking it up.
