March was an awesome month in the book world. SO MANY NEW RELEASES. I haven’t even been able to read all of the new releases I want to yet. But I did manage to read some other pretty awesome books. My stats are pretty crazy for this month so I wanted to share: 12 books with a combined total fo 4,330 pages and an average rating of 4.41 out of 5. So without further ado, let’s jump in!
The Good Girl By: Mary Kubica (4 Stars): I listened to this book and it was amazing. The book is extremely well written and read – and being well read makes a huge difference. There was a twist at the end that I DID NOT see coming! This book was adventurous and complex and a great read.
The Music Shop By: Rachel Joyce (5 Stars, BOTM Selection): The only word to describe this book is: WOW. This book was astounding and one of the best I have ever read. The plot was insanely simple yet so deep and the writing was so beautiful it was almost poetic. A must read.
Voyager By: Diana Gabaldon (5 Stars): This is the 3rd book in the Outlander series and my favorite of them so far. If you haven’t read this series I highly recommend it.
Beartown By: Fredrik Backman (5 Stars): GAME CHANGER. I don’t know how Fredrik Backman does it. Seriously. Every single one of his books leaves me feeling like it was the best book I have ever read and then the next book blows the last one out of the water. This is his newest release (with another coming out this spring) and if you haven’t read any of his books, you are seriously missing out.
November 9 By: Colleen Hoover (5 Stars): Colleen Hoover’s ability to convey emotions and feelings is nothing like I’ve seen in an author. This book came into my life during my worst depression episode to date; and the words she used to convey love, pain, and hurt helped me validate my own feelings.
Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine By: Gail Honeyman (4 Stars, BOTM Selection): I really enjoyed this book and Eleanor’s personality. She is so overly logical it is almost humorous, but yet very serious at the same time. This book is a great comment on mental health.
The Last Equation of Isaac Severy By: Nova Jacobs (3.5 Stars, BOTM Selection): MATH NERDS UNITE! There aren’t many books that circle around math. Don’t worry, there isn’t any actual math in the book. This was an enjoyable read.
With Love from the Inside By: Angela Pisel (5 Stars): Be warned: you may cry a lot during this book. I am not a crier when it comes to books, but I cried the last 50 pages of this book. This book was extremely well written and the character development extremely smooth. Angela Pisel’s way of conveying emotion is extremely genuine.
City of Ashes By: Cassandra Clare (4 Stars): This is the second book in the Mortal Instruments series and it was really good! The first book was about world building, and now we got into the adventure and character depth of the story!
Wires and Nerve Volume 2 By: Marissa Meyer (5 Stars): I will forever devour any book that Marissa Meyer publishes. She can literally do no wrong. This book is a graphic novel at the end of a long line of books starting with the Lunar Chronicles which is an amazing series and one of the best I’ve ever read.
How Dare the Sun Rise By: Sandra Uwiringiyimana (3 Stars): This story was incredible, the writing of the story not so much. But the story itself should be focused on. This is a memoir, true life. And Sandra survived a massacre, severe poverty and then moved to America as a refugee. This is her story and it will blow your mind.
The book world is exploding right now and I would love to hear your most recent book recommendations!
