March Wrap Up

April has somehow crept up on me once again, and I honestly can't believe that we are already a quarter of the way through the year!  But despite my surprise, March is firmly over and so its time for another wrap up of all the books that I managed to read during it.  Honestly, March was just an average reading month for me, as I managed to finish 3 books this month and start another, so it wasn't awful for me, but was definitely not a good month either.  However, I will say that I read some amazing books this month and thoroughly enjoyed everything I did get round to, and so that kind of balances out the actual number of books I read.  And so, enjoy! 

This was the first book that I decided to pick up last month as at the time I was still really in the mood for a contemporary, but didn't want to read just another cute romance story.  This one was also on my winter TBR, and so I knew I should get round to it soon before the first book in this series became too much of a distant memory for me as was getting on for a year since I had read The Raven Boys.  As this one is the second book in a series, I don't really want to say too much about this one other than the fact that I adored how the plot and characters developed and grew in this, as well as how beautiful the writing was once again.  I certainly enjoyed this one as much, in fact probably more than the first book and so I can't wait to continue on with this series and see where it goes next!

Rating - 4.75/5

After The Dream Thieves, I knew I wanted another similar to it or one with some fantastical or more magical aspect to it than your usually contemporary, and so this one seemed like the perfect choice.  This is the sequel or companion novel to Everyday, which follows A as they spend each and  every day in someone else's body for just one day, and so this book lets us read from Rhiannon's, a key character in Everyday, perspective.  Everyday is one of my favourite books, and so its safe to say I was a little scared to read this, not only because personally I am not the biggest fan of stories being told from multiple perspectives but also due to the fact that it had been so long since I read Everyday.  Nonetheless, I ended up really enjoying this book and ended up loving returning to this story, likely even more it had been so long since I first read the story, and so everything felt both familiar and new at the same time.  I also adored how addictive this book was and how easy it was to jump back into this world all over again.

Rating - 4/5

Next up I decided to tackle one of the books on my Spring TBR, and so picked up one that I was insanely excited about reading and couldn't wait to delve into.  Throne of Glass was one of my favorite books of last year, and so ever since then I have been trying to hold off just bingeing through this series at an alarming rate, but this month I thought it was finally time to let myself dive back into this world and this story and read the next installment in this series.  Once again, I don't want to say too much about what actually happens in this one, despite how many overwhelming emotions I may have about it, but I did absolutely adore this book with all my heart.  It was so addictive and took so many twists and turns that I literally couldn't put it down and so spent way too many late nights unable to stop reading this.  I loved how we saw all the characters develop and how the plot grew and evolved into something more amazing than it already was and I think its safe to say its not going to be too long at all before I am returning to this world once again.

Rating -5/5

Finally, although I only managed to actually finish three books this month, I spent the majority of this month reading and making my way through this book.  So far I'm about halfway through and really enjoying it, so hopefully I will be able to finish this one along with many more books next month!

What books did you read last month?  Have you read any of these - what did you think?
