I managed to read almost 50 books this month! Ha, April Fools! Yes I know, it’s not a clever…can that even be called a prank? I don’t have the time or the energy to plan anything spectacular for April Fools, and I’m not a fan of pop-up videos or scare pranks so you won’t find anything like that here. Any links in this post are just boring links to other posts, I promise. Somehow March felt even shorter than February, if that’s even possible. There is more sunshine now at least, but I still feel like there are not enough hours in the day.
I read four books in March. Two were new releases from my TBR pile, and two were part of my reread of the Shadow and Bone trilogy. I am more than okay with having completed only four books, I am trying to take it easy as I approach my due date. Hopefully I can match this amount in April, and then May will probably be a write off month when I take a small blog hiatus.
Here are the books I read this month:
The Witches Heart by Genevieve Gornichec (2021):
This was a new release from early February that I had been dying to read. And boy did it deliver! This book was packed full of heartache, monsters, and norse gods, and Genevieve Gornichec is a phenomenal writer. My review for it will likely go up in early April, so keep an eye out!
Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo (2012):
Did I decide to reread this series just so I would be refreshed for when the tv series is released? Maybe. I like to reread series from time to time, especially when I can’t recall half of what happens in the plot. It’s been so long since I last read Shadow and Bone that some of the twists did catch me by surprise! Check out my review of the first book, Shadow and Bone, here!
What Big Teeth by Rose Szabo (2021):
This was another February release I just had to read, and yes I did sneak it right into the middle of my Shadow and Bone trilogy reread. Normally when I start a series I read it all the way through without a break, but this book deserved an exception. If you’re looking for a book about a bizarre family filled with mystery and horror, look no further! Check out my review of What Big Teeth here.
Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo (2013):
Can I just start by saying that ‘Siege’ is a frustrating word and I somehow never spell it right on the first try? Siege and Storm is the second book in the Shadow and Bone trilogy, and I must say I did enjoy it more than the first book. I’m still not sure if I’m ‘team’ anyone yet, although Nikolai is probably my favourite character so far! I should have a review for Siege and Storm up in early April.
I have no lofty reading goals for April, except hopefully finish a couple of books in between all my naps (when does it cross the line into hibernating? I’ll need to look that up).
Did you read any of these books in March? What books are on your April TBR pile? Let me know in the comments!
