Hello bookworms! Today I am sharing with you the books I read in March and what I thought of them!
March was a good month of reading for me! I read a total of six (but technically 8-you’ll see why further into my post) books.
King’s Cage by Victoria Aveyard: I reviewed this book here on my blog (view the review here)! I gave the book 4 stars! It is the third book of Victoria Aveyard’s Red Queen series! This series is about the creation of a new race, the silvers due to a mutation that led to their superiority because they have powers that the “reds” (normal people) do not. That is until Mare Barrow, a red, realizes that she too is different. I have a lot of love for this series and while this book wasn’t my favorite in the series I still have hope for the fourth book!
Girl Online Going Solo by Zoe Sugg: This is the third and final book of Zoe Sugg’s Girl Online series. Penny was just a normal British girl with a small blog until she met rockstar Noah Flynn. He turns her world upside down and through it all she battles with growing up and dealing with her anxiety. While not the most stimulating of reads ever, I like the awareness to anxiety that this book series brings! A younger me would have definitely enjoyed this series a lot more and I think they send a great message to young kids! I gave this book 3 stars.
Long May She Reign by Rhiannon Thomas: I have a full review of this book up on the blog (view the review here)! Freya was not the average court-attending, royal girl. She loves science and wants nothing more than to be able to spend her life inventing things. However, a mass murder takes place leaving her as queen and now she not only has to deal with the threat of being killed but also on how to rule a country. While not my most favorite read ever, like Girl Online, this book would have been one a younger me would have liked a lot! I just think I have read a lot of good books recently and this one didn’t reach the expectations I had set for it. I gave it 3 stars.
The Fate of the Tearling by Erika Johansen: Another one that I have posted a review for (view the review here)! Kelsea Raleigh grew up with a peaceful childhood in the woods, where she never came in contact with people besides her parents. She soon finds out that her parents aren’t her biological parents and that she is to be queen. Kelsea battles with learning to use magic and gaining the trust of her people. I LOVED this book! It is the third and final installment of The Queen of the Tearling trilogy which is a book series I adore (its actually one of my favorites)! I gave it 5 stars.
I ended my month with a bang:
A Court of Thorns and Roses and A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas: I don’t have a review up on my blog yet for these beautiful books but am actually planning on posting a big review after A Court of Wings and Ruin comes out in May! These books are definitely the favorite of March (and potentially 2017). I enjoyed them so much the first time and was in such a depression of not knowing what to do after finishing them that I actually read them AGAIN as soon as I finished ACOMAF. (so technically these 2 books count as 4 books for March) I had not read anything by SJM before this month and now I cannot wait to go buy the Throne of Glass series and begin reading them! Feyre is a mortal who hates anything Fae for enslaving her people and when Tamlin, a faerie, comes to take her back to his lands Feyre can do nothing about it. Feyre learns much of faeries during her time with Tamlin including the danger they are in, which she tries to help stop. Without going into too much detail, I love the creativity of the Fae world that Maas creates and the extremely good characterization! I feel like I have known Rhysand and Feyre my whole life! I gave both books 5 stars! (If anyone wants to fangirl over these with me, please feel free!)
I was pretty happy with my March month of reading- there were a lot of success stories for me!
What was your favorite book that you read in March?
