Do you know, I’ve never done a wrap up before. I wasn’t sure if it’s something you’d be interested in andI’ve never really had enough to talk about, but I’ve found some gorgeous books and posts this month. So here goes!!
Books I’ve Read In March
A pretty modest number! Realistically, I read between 4-6 books a month but it’s steadily decreasing with school and sleep and homework becoming a factor again. Ew. Also, I did a lot of rereading this month. Honestly, I’ve reread as many books this month as I normally would in a year. There’s been rereading to catch up on series, impulse rereads of aw remember that book and some more boring reads to tackle my rapidly increasing tbr!
- Six Of Crows by Leigh Bardugo. This was a reread after buying the Collectors Edition and owning a copy for the first time – I’d forgotten how amazing the first book is.
- Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo. So of course I had to read Crooked Kingdom again (for posterity). I bought this straight after borrowing the first from the library and have read it so many times the spine’s kind of caved in. Oh no, I’ll just have to buy the Collectors Edition…
- You Should See Me In A Crown by Leah Johnson. This was an absolutely adorable sapphic prom read and you can find my full review here.
- They Both Die At The End by Adam Silvera for the third time? Fourth time? You can find out why it’s my comfort read (and probably shouldn’t be) here.
- The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. I’m glad I finally read this, but I wasn’t the biggest fan. The writing felt excessively flowery – with the actual meaning second behind having nice metaphors. And whilst they were nice metaphors, I was confused. I also found myself almost sympathising with Gatsby, which I don’t think you’re supposed to do? If you’ve tried it, let me know your opinions in the comments!
- All The Young Dudes by MsKingBean89 on Archive Of Our Own. I don’t normally log fanfiction as if they’re real books, but this thing is three times as long as Cassandra Clare’s longest novel. And three thousand times as good. Find my cross-stitch inspired by this marauders fan-fiction (and why it is absolutely iconic) here.
What I’m Currently Reading
I’ve definitely talked about this before so I’ll keep it brief, but my copy of Rule Of Wolves arrived today!! I’ve been rereading King Of Scars because my memory of this book is a hot mess of a long car journey and some very traumatising plot twists. The last line, anyone?
I’m now in a frantic rush to finish both of them before the meme pages have time to make spoilers, but it’s a very good stress. I love this universe so much!
My Favourite Posts Of March
This is another thing I’ve never done before, but I really wanted to celebrate some of the posts by really talented bloggers I’ve seen this month. I could have included so many more, but here (in no particular order) are my five favourites.
- The Recommendations Book Tag from Ally Writes Things
This was Ally’s original tag and I loved her answers so much. Can’t wait to try it!
- Quote Of The Day from The Write Path
Another gorgeous idea!
- Top Ten Tuesday: Places In Books I’d Love to Live from Bookshelf Fantasies
I really liked this take on the tag, I totally agree!
- Ableism in the Bookish Community: Discussion from Luminosity Library
This was a really interesting (if not worrying) topic and I really enjoyed Bertie and other’s opinions.
- Things That Made Me Smile (March 22, 2021) #WeeklySmile from A Multitude Of Musings
Sometimes it’s the small things! I thought that this was a brilliant and interesting idea.
