March 2019 Wrap Up

I was hoping for more books read this month, but work was busy and I had a cold again. My immune system is shot and I think it has to do with my neighbour screaming bloody murder at his video game until 4am every morning. It makes it a smidge hard to sleep! But enough with the whining; let’s get into it!

This month I read a lot of 1-2 star books, which was pretty unfortunate. But I was also lucky enough to get two 5 stars and one 4 star, so it wasn’t a complete waste.

Let me know what you read this month (links to your own blogs are more than welcome!) and what book was your favourite!

One.
Five Feet Apart (Rachael Lippincott)
Rating:
5 Stars
Genre: YA Romance
Recommendation: Grab the tissues before you pick this one up!
Overall: This was adorable and sweet and innocent. I sobbed like a freakin’ baby! I couldn’t put it down and if you liked The Fault in Our Stars you’ll enjoy this one, too.

Two.
Always and Forever, Lara Jean (Jenny Han)

Rating: 2 Stars
Genre: YA Romance
Recommendation: If you’re in the market for a fluffy, slightly annoying book, this one’s a good one.
Overall: I tried to like it but I just couldn’t related to Lara Jean. Not my favourite at all.

Three.
A Court of Thorns and Roses (Sarah J. Maas)

Rating: 5 Stars
Genre: YA Fantasy
Recommendation: Absolutely read this. You actually have to.
Overall: I think the fact that I ran out and bought the rest of the series (despite promising myself I wouldn’t spend anything more on books this month) says enough, no?

Four.
One More Day (Mitch Albom)
Rating:
3 Stars
Genre: Fiction
Recommendation: Meh.
Overall: Honestly not my favourite Albom book. This one just didn’t hold up to the high standards his later works associate him with. It was an easy read, though.

Five.
Vox (Christina Dalcher)
Rating:
2 Stars
Genre: Apocalyptic
Recommendation: It wouldn’t be my first pick, if I were you.
Overall: The concept was pretty good but ultimately it just wasn’t that exciting of a read, unfortunately.

Six.
A Serial Killer’s Daughter (Karri Rawson)
Rating:
2 Stars
Genre: Memoir/Non Fiction
Recommendation: If you can get past the first half to the actual point of the story (being the daughter of a serial killer) then go for it.
Overall: I’m never a fan of books that take over 100 pages to get to the captivating part, so this was a slow read at first. But once I got half way, it got interesting.

Seven.
Cross Her Heart (Sarah Pinborough)
Rating:
4 Stars
Genre: Thriller
Recommendation: Read it!
Overall: This one wasn’t as good as Behind Her Eyes but it was still really good and a very enjoyable read. I’m excited to see what comes next for Sarah Pinborough!

Eight.
99 Days (Katie Cotugno)
Rating:
1 Star
Genre: YA/Middle Grade/Romance?
Recommendation: Don’t bother
Overall: This one, like, made my head hurt. The writing and dialogue were so incredibly stereotypical. Ugh.

Nine.
This is How You Lose Her (Junot Diaz)
Rating:
1 Star
Genre: Fiction
Recommendation: Nah.
Overall: Just wasn’t my cup of tea.
