March Wrap Up

marchwpup

Whilst writing this post, I had to do a double take on the number of books I’ve completed this month. It feels like I haven’t read at all but in actual fact I’ve gotten through nine books….nine!

I have no idea how this happened, as it’s been a really busy month for me. I’ve been trying to organise moving into my new place and have turned into a ridiculous human who deliberates over the colour combination of cushions that should go on my pretty new sofa for hours. What’s worse is that I still haven’t decided!

Anyways, I digress. I read more than my TBR (yay!) but didn’t manage to read The Book Thief, which was my TBR jar read (hiss!). I’m determined to get through the book so I will try my hardest to read it next month.

Quick Overviews:

J.K. Rowling – The Harry Potter Re-Read

Reading these books as an adult was a very different experience from reading them as a child, but it’s no less enjoyable. Yes, they are not literary works of art but what J.K. Rowling does best is tell a story, and it’s a bloody brilliant one at that

Anton Chekhov – A Russian Affair

This is an exquisite collection and one that I will definitely read again.

Robert Dinsdale – Gingerbread

Gingerbread is a unique rendition of the fairy tales we know and love; I’m not sure whether I loved it, but I did really enjoy reading this.

Andrew Kaufman – All my Friends are Super Heroes

This is a sweet little thing of a book and, although a bit clichéd, is a joy to read. You can’t help but fall into the world of superheroes – I kept thinking what superpower I would have, and what it would say about me? (I still don’t know the answer this!)

Sylvia Plath – The Bell Jar

Plath has a no-nonsense way of depicting events that – depending on its nature – can come across as disturbed or as poetic. Not sure whether I disliked this book or whether my expectations were too high for it to succeed. No matter which it is, I am glad I read it.

Veronica Roth – The Divergent Series

A gem of a YA trilogy – this is fast paced and grips you from the get go.
