I had a much better reading month in March than I anticipated. I finished 6 books and 4 novellas. Three of these were part of my March TBR and three were on my February TBR. Well, let’s just get on with my thoughts for the books I read.
I thought that Thirteen Reasons Why was ok, I didn’t love it like I thought I would. It deals with a serious subject and I don’t think it was heavy hitting as it should have been. I am still looking forward to watching the Netflix Series because I think it will translate well on-screen. 2.5 stars
I loved this book and thought it was beautifully told. It brought out many different emotions, at times I would be sad and shed some tears, then angry and there were also happy moments. I definitely would recommend and gave it 5 stars.
Cruel Crown and The Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard
Cruel Crown is a bind up of two novellas, Queen Song and Steel Scars, they are both prequels to Red Queen. They were both ok and it was nice to read about Cal’s mother Queen Coriane.
I liked Glass Sword and thought it was fast-paced and action-packed just like Red Queen. I gave it 3 stars.
I am so glad that I picked this book up even though I hadn’t planned on it because it was so good. Libba Bray does such a great job weaving super natural elements within Victorian London. I loved reading about the friendship between Gemma and her friends and can’t wait to continue on with the series. 4.5 stars
I loved A Little Princess and couldn’t help but love and root for Sara Crewe. She was just a darling and I think we could all learn something from her. 5 Stars
Annabel and Hana are both novellas in the Delirium series. Annabel is about Lena’s mother and we get to read about her time in the crypts and how she escaped. I could have done without Hana’s story most of it was scenes that we read through Lena’s perspective. However, it did confirm something that I was suspicious about in Delirium.
I thought Delirium was good and I did like it but I thought the author did a lot of telling rather than showing me. So for me that was disappointing but overall I did like the book and gave it 3 stars.
