I feel like a broken record, but March flew by. It feels like yesterday I wrote my February Wrap-Up post.
March was a month of comfort reads for me. After finishing A Court of Silver Flames last month, I’ve been in a book hangover, so I decided to reread the trilogy. It has been both a blessing and a curse. It’s been an incredible experience rereading these books I haven’t touched since the release of ACOWAR, but now that I’m finished I feel empty. Though, the news of a television show has me excited beyond words.
During the month of March, I read 8 books, 1 novella.
So, here are some stats!
Number of pages read: 4244
Number of print books: 5
Number of e-books: 5
Favourite quote of the month:
Quote from The Crown of Gilded Bones I can’t share
“You do not falter. You do not yield.” – A Court of Wings and Ruin
Usually, I feature two books from differing genres here but I couldn’t help myself.
A Court of Mist and Fury is an absolute masterpiece. I am an emotional wreck after having finished my third reread of it. It feels as if a piece of my soul is missing now that I’ve finished reading. There are truly only a handful of books that make me long for a different life and this is one of them.
Despite having read this when it first released, finishing the novel left me in pieces. I won’t be forgetting this world and these characters anytime soon.
Flock was an okay read but had some of the spiciest scenes I’ve ever read. All the assumptions the reader had to make coupled with the slut shaming made Flock an okay read.
The Devil Wears Black is more than just an enemies-to-lovers romance. Instead, it’s a story about grief, loss, forgiveness, and self-discovery. Well worth the read!
Cop Town is a difficult read as it portrays 1970s Atlanta Police Department as corrupt, racist, misogynistic, sexist, etc. Readers get an intimate look at the effects of this toxic culture through two very different women making Cop Town more than just a mystery.
The Crown of Gilded Bones packs a punch that will sure to leave readers desperate for the next novel. Armentrout again strikes a perfect balance between fantasy and romance by blending them together to a create a world that’s comprehensive and populated by characters that are well developed and feel real. –> Full review to come!
A Court of Thorns and Roses is easily one of my all time favourite series. These characters got under my skin and never left. No matter how hard I try to shake them off, I can’t.
Uncanny Collateral is a fun and action packed novella with interesting characters and a surprisingly robust world.
Royal Assassin is a solid fantasy novel that lets readers simmer in the world while engaging them with court intrigue and telepathic mind games.
Dark One is slightly disappointing as the world and characters feel under developed. However, the blending of reality and fantasy work well to communicate to readers the vastness of what this world could be in the next few volumes.
Have you read any of these? What did you think? What did you read in the month of March
