Wrap Up: March 2018

IMG_20180305_155956.jpg

Hi everyone! March went by so incredibly quickly for me. I honestly have no idea what to tell you about it, because on the one hand I feel like I basically got nothing done, but on the other hand I feel like I was incredibly busy and everything was super chaotic, so that’s fun.

I did manage to read quite a bit, which was partly thanks to my Scribd subscription. I used to have a subscription with them before, but where we used to only be able to read 3 e-books and 1 audiobook a month, you now have unlimited access. So, of course, I got quite a few audiobooks in.

I have no idea if I’ll be able to read just as much in April. My finals are in May, which means that I’ll have a lot of studying to do, but that can mean two things. Either I actually study and I hardly read, or I procrastinate and end up reading a lot more than I plan on reading. Let’s hope it’s going to be the former…

Knipsel

Joe Speedboot by Tommy Wieringa – I tried to read this for school but I hated it so much that I ended up DNF’ing it.
My So-Called Bollywood Life by Nisha Sharma – I quite liked this! The romance was cute, I liked the film aspect of it, but I didn’t *love* the main character.
The Epic Fail of Arturo Zamora by Pablo Cartaya – This was incredibly wonderful and touching and there was a lot of food involved, which I’m always a fan of.
Binti by Nnedi Okorafor – It took me way too long to finally pick this one up and I really enjoyed it!

As Brave As You by Jason Reynolds – I’m a big fan of Jason Reynolds, and I’ve liked every single one of his books a lot, so it’s no surprise that I really enjoyed this one too.
Ghost and Patina by Jason Reynolds – I’m really enjoying this series, and I can’t wait for the 3rd book, which comes out in April I believe.
The Sky at Our Feet by Nadia Hashimi – I picked this one up on a whim because the audiobook was available, and I ended up really enjoying it! It’s a shame that I’ve hardly seen anyone talk about it.

Prom Queen Perfect by Clarisse David – This was very enjoyable, and I adored the romance and character development.
Want by Cindy Pon – This was GOOD. Like, really really good. Definitely one of the best SFF books I’ve ever read.
The Poet X by Elizabeth Acevedo – One of the most powerful books that I’ve read, and I’m sure it’s going to stay with me for a long time.
Better at Weddings Than You by Mina V. Esguerra – This was a fun read, and the romance was pretty cute, but I didn’t like it as much as I thought I would and I just didn’t care much about what was happening.

Tempest by Beverly Jenkins – This was my very first historical romance, and I really enjoyed it. Especially the step-mom/step-daughter relationship.
The Way You Make Me Feel by Maurene Goo – I really enjoyed this book, and I’m hoping that this is going to be THE contemporary this summer. It has a cute romance, an amazing father/daughter relationship and lots of yummy food.
The Vanderbeekers and the Hidden Garden by Karina Van Glasser – I was a big fan of the first book in this series, and the second book was just as wonderful. I had tears in my eyes while reading it because it was just so wonderful.

Heartstopper by Alice Oseman – People have been telling me to get into this webcomic for quite some time, and I finally did it this month, and I’m kind of kicking myself for not getting into it sooner because this is the cutest thing I’ve ever read.
Spider-man: Miles Morales – I, sadly, didn’t like this as much as I thought I would.
Ms. Marvel vol 8: Mecca – This series just gets better with every single comic. I love it so much.

current

I’m currently reading The Summer of Jordi Perez by Amy Spalding, The Wedding Date by Jasmine Guillory and I Was Born for This by Alice Oseman. I’m currently a few chapters into each of them, and I’m really enjoying them all. If I had to guess, I’d say that all of these are going to be a 4-star read, minimum. But maybe that’s wishful thinking.

So, that was everything I read in March! Did you manage to read a lot this month? What was the best thing you read in March? Let me know!

    Wow, such a great reading month you had! Your post made me make a secret promise to try to read on April. I haven’t seen any of the books you read this month, and I am intrigued by your thoughts and the covers 😅
