March Wrap Up

How is it already time for a March wrap up? It was a good month, but it went by too fast! I reached over 100 followers on this blog about two weeks ago, and I’m still excited about that! I want to thank everyone who helped me reach this milestone! I’m happy to know that over 100 of you are interested in my content and that I’m not just talking to myself. Thank you!

Now for the March wrap up: I finished 7 books, which is an improvement from the 4 I read in February, and my average rating was 4.5 stars. This is kind of high, but I enjoyed all the books I read. I’m a little behind on reviews, but my goal is to catch up in April. Let’s get started with the books read!

1. Born A Crime by Trevor Noah * // This book was one of my favorite reads in March. It was funny and one of the best memoirs I’ve read. I gave this 5/5 stars and you can read the review here.

2. Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi * // This book was on my most anticipated book for the first half of 2018. I enjoyed this book and gave it 5/5 stars. The writing and character development was well done and the I loved the world-building. Read the review here.

3. Circe by Madeline Miller // Circe is a standalone follow up to The Song of Achilles. I enjoyed it tremendously and gave it 4/5 stars. The writing is mesmerizing! Circe is easy to root for, and the side characters are relatable and intriguing. Check out the eARC review here.

4. An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir * // This book is tied with Born A Crime as my favorite read in March. I finished An Ember in the Ashes in less than 24 hours and I loved every minute of it. I rated this 5/5 stars. Review to come.

5. A Torch Against the Night by Sabaa Tahir * // I rushed to the bookstore as soon as I finished An Ember in the Ashes to pick up this sequel. I rated this 5/5 stars because I loved the writing and the characters. I’m happy this series did not suffer a sophomore slump. Review to come.

6. Battle of the Labyrinth by Rick Riordan // This book is my favorite book in the Percy Jackson series so far. I loved the action and the characters! I gave this 4/5 stars. I can’t wait to read the final book in the series.

7. The Hidden Oracle by Rick Riordan * // I loved this book and enjoyed Apollo’s obnoxious and arrogant narration. It was fun and this books feels just a little bit more mature than the first book in the Percy Jackson series. I gave this one 4/5 stars. I’ll probably write a mini-review for this and Battle of Labyrinth.

  1. 7 is a great number! I read 2 books in March which is a low for me since I usually read at least 5 or 6. However, I did read some comic volumes so I’m not that bummed out about having read so less. I bought…a lot, however as I always do. It’s bad but I don’t know how to stop. I just like having a ton of options when the time comes to start a new book.

    Born a Crime is a favorite of mine and I’m so excited for the sequel as well as the movie adaptation! I really need to An Ember in the Ashes series especially with the third book releasing this year. I hope you like The City of Brass! I super enjoyed it and it was great to see different types of Muslim representation in the book, too. I’m so glad it’s finally April 10 and I can start Circe because I’ve been for it for more than 2 years now haha.

    I’ll definitely check out your discussion posts. They all sound so very interesting! Happy reading
