Monthly Wrap-Up | March 2018

Hey, everyone!

I can’t believe we’re in April already. Last month flew by too quickly, and I didn’t seem like I could catch up. The last week of March was difficult, and I struggled with juggling my life and my blog, so I took some time away from writing posts. I kind of feel bad for not saying anything. But I’m back! You can all hide now.

Thankfully, April’s a new month. On the book front though, March was fantastic. So let’s get on with it.

 

I could have tackled more books last month, but I just didn’t feel like rushing through them. Do you know what I mean? I sometimes feel that I don’t always process the entire book once I jump into another. But with blogging, I don’t always have the time to do just that. I took my time with reading these beauties though.

 

Dark Glitter by C. M. Stunich and Tate James

⭐⭐⭐½

I’ve read only one of Tate’s books, but she won me over. So I jumped at the chance to read this paranormal romance. I haven’t read many reverse harem stories though, so I wasn’t sure what I got myself into. But both authors create a steamy storyline brimming with folklore, magic, and strong characters.

 

The Wicked Deep by Shea Ernshaw

⭐⭐⭐⭐

I cried badly. Shea creates such a poignant and heartbreaking story. She puts a spin on the tradition witch novel. Foreboding makes this debut novel rich and lush. I found the ending fairly predictable, but I loved the writing and storytelling. It’s a beautiful novel.

And have you heard? Netflix won the rights to this book! I’m so happy to hear this new. I can’t wait to see the book on the small screen.

 

The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert

⭐⭐⭐½

Some reviewers have stated Hazel Wood is an Alice in Wonderland retelling. And while I see the similarities, I wish I enjoyed it much more than I do. Even though it takes a dark twist on fairy tales, the storyline feels disjointed about halfway through. But don’t be persuaded to push this book away though. You might like it more than me.

Thank you Indigo Teen for the giveaway! My review will come shortly!

 

The Last Namsara by Kristen Ciccarelli

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Dragons, betrayal, deadly politics, and a strong-willed girl whose past is littered with tragedy. Kristen makes you believe the Last Namsara isn’t her debut novel. I love her storytelling and world building. She isn’t afraid to make her MC into a lethal weapon.

I highly recommend this book. Go and buy it now! Review to come.


I need to stop buying more books (I hear my mind laughing at me while I write this down). I must tackle the books on my shelf, but you know, books will be published, and I’ll continue to buy.

So anyway, I went on a big siren and pirate haul, and I don’t regret a single purchase. I truly don’t. Kathy @ Books & Munches persuaded me to buy the Daughter of the Pirate King series, and I couldn’t pass up on one more. Without much ado, here are my new additions to my TBR pile:

  1. I’ve heard great things for To Kill A Kingdom (to the extent that 4 people told me verbatim that they stayed up till ungodly hours of the night finishing it). This has definitely piqued my interest. Speaking of Sirens, have you tried that new “Siren” television show that just released?

    • I’m just starting to read it, and I love that both of the MCs are ruthless. Finally, we get brutal characters.

      Yes! I have. It’s really good. I’m glad it isn’t a fluffy and flowery mermaid show. Have you seen it?

  2. I know exactly what you mean about not wanting to rush through books! It sounds like you had a great reading month and I’m glad you took your time to read the books you read! Speaking of sirens, have you watched the new “Siren” show on Freeform? I saw some good things about on Twitter.

  3. Daughter of the Siren Queen was so good although I didn’t enjoy The Hazel Wood much. I was disappointed in The Last Namsara, but I’m glad you enjoyed it!
