What I Read in March ’18

So, in my place of education, there was a challenge up for the month where we had to read five books in March. I completed that, and a lot of the books here were read specifically for that purpose, and I also finished a few extra – which I think is impressive, considering I’ve been in a bit of a book slump and I’ve been reading slower than usual, as well as being so piled up with work!

Cinder & Ella (2/5)
Kelly Oram

This was…pretty bad. It wasn’t bad enough that I didn’t finish it, I love fairytale retellings, but the love interest was horrible and it was so problematic. I’m glad I didn’t buy this and used the Kindle lending library instead.

Percy Jackson and the Sea of Monsters (4/5)
Rick Riordan

I really liked this book. There were some issues with it, like how everything happens just a little too conveniently, but it is a kids book after all and they’re just so fun and adventurous. I’m sad I missed out on these when I was a kid.

Always Human (4/5)
Ari Walkingnorth

Absolutely adorable and the artwork was stunning! I can’t wait to read more from this author. The only thing I didn’t like, and the reason why I took a star off, was the way weight and fatness was handled.

This is my Face: Try Not to Stare (4/5)
Gabourey Sidibe

I have a full review of this here.

Love Sugar Magic: A Dash of Trouble (4/5)
Anna Meriano

I have a full review of this here.

Death Note: Black Edition 3 (3/5)
Tsugami Ohba

I really like this series so far, but this one was missing so much of what I really enjoyed about the first two graphic novels in the series and it made me enjoy it less than I would have otherwise more than likely. I’m still going to read the forth one, and I really hope that one picks the story back up a bit

We Are Okay (5/5)
Nina LaCoar

It’s not very often I give a five star review of a book, so that should really tell you everything you need to know. Because this book is so short, I don’t want to write a review up for it because I feel like it’s better to go into this book without knowing anything

Queens of Geek 
Jen Wilde

I’m still currently reading this! By the time this post goes up, I might have finished it, as I’m in the #EasterReadathon and this is one of the books that I chose so it should be finished before March is over!

So, that’s what I read for the month of March! I might have changed something here and there but otherwise I’m happy with it and I’ve got to books that I’ve been meaning to get to for a while!

Until next time,
Alyx
