March was another good reading month – less books at the top of my scale but not too many that I didn’t enjoy. I think I rated most things I read in March around a 4/5. I got through 7 out of the 8 review books I had on my TBR pile for the month – the only one I didn’t make it to was Kill The Angel which is the 2nd book in a series. I haven’t read the first (although I do own it on iBooks) but I just didn’t have time for the both of them. I found time to read around 7 or so books from my own shelves, some new purchases and ones I’ve owned for a while.

April already looks like a busy month – lots of books have arrived and as per usual, here is my pile:

Ok, it’s not quite as bad as it looks – I’ve actually already read three from this pile for reviews to go up this week – I Have Lost My Way by Gayle Forman, Birthright by Fiona Lowe and The Fortress by S.A. Jones. I’m pretty keen for the new Nicola Moriarty, because I really like her books and The Lost Flowers Of Alice Hart is being quite heavily promoted so hopefully I enjoy that one! Don’t know a lot about all the rest, although Killer Intent has some big wraps on it.

And then there’s my own books…..I haven’t actually singled many out yet but I definitely want to get read Obsidio by Amy Kaufman and Jay Kristoff, which I bought two weeks ago now and still have not read! I need the right time to sit down and open it when I don’t have anything going on. I thought that might be the Easter weekend but unfortunately it hasn’t panned out that way! There are two weeks of school holidays ahead of us now, so I’m pretty confident I’ll be able to get to it while they’re happening. Some other books on my shelf I wouldn’t mind finally finding the time to read include Tower Of Dawn (still), Crooked Kingdom (still), In The Dark Spaces by Cally Black which I bought ages ago and has been nominated for or won a slew of awards or The Nowhere Girls by Amy Reed which I bought on the strength of the recommendation of the seller at The Younger Son bookshop. I won’t find time for all of those….but I’d like to at least get to one or two of them.

It is school holidays after all so we will have to do some other things too….Child #2 has requested the movies, but to see something that was actually out a long time ago…he doesn’t realise things don’t stick around at the movies like they do on Netflix etc. So I’ll see if he actually just wants to see that particular movie or if he’s keen to see something that is actually showing. I want to go to the wildlife sanctuary again one day and I’m sure there’ll be a trip to Timezone, maybe some visits to our fave cafe and perhaps even a drive down the coast. All Child #1 wants to do is play Fortnite or whatever it is on the PS4 but hopefully the lure of some playdates and a sleepover at his sister’s place will get him out of the study!

Hope you all had fabulous reading month’s for March and a lovely Easter, if you celebrate it. Feel free to tell me something fabulous you read or a book you’re looking forward to in April, in the comments.

    I’m looking forward to seeing what you think of The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart, and Birthright, Bree. Happy Easter.

  2. Fortnite!! Yes, son number 1 seems to want to do that 24/7 here as well. Apparently there was a waiting list to download it even though it’s free…talk about creating hype. Wish he wanted to read as badly!

  3. Looks like you had a great month 🙂

    HOW do you get the time to read all these books? I set myself a 100 book challenge this year and so far have only read a measly nine!! All in all, I am thoroughly enjoying your reviews, and your posts are simply motivational. You make me want to pick up a book this minute and read away!

  5. […] made it through all of the books in my April #tbr (included in my March Reading Wrap post, linked here) except one, which was The Opal Dragonfly by Julian Leatherdale. It’s a behemoth of a thing […]
