March Monthly Wrap Up

Monthly Highlights

Looking at my calender, I am concerned because I feel like I did very little this month and yet I was also incredibly busy so I’m just sitting here wondering WHAT I spent my time doing! I think what it boils down to is spending time with my family, getting more exercise in, being ill, going to the cinema and just work, work, work!

Bookish event wise, I did two bookish things this month!

The first was book club which was really fun, as it always is, even though I didn’t get around to finishing the book!

The second was the Oxford Literary Festival where I went to see Lucy (Queen of Contemporary), Daphne (Winged Reviews), Ben (Benjaminoftomes) and Casey (Dark Readers) talk at a panel about book blogging. It was really interesting hearing about their perspectives on blogging and I loved that they all had different views. It was a great day.

And I, of course, also saw the film adaptation of Insurgent and I loved it! It was a great film and really worked well with what I remember of the book too.

Blogging has taken a back seat this month (hence my confusion on lack of things in my calender!) but my top posts this month were;

UKYA Book Blogger Award Winners
Book Review: Ways to See a Ghost by Emily Diamond
Faye’s Thoughts on… Book Blogging

My reading also hasn’t been great this month, I have only managed to finish seven books – but I think that’s because I’m no longer taking the bus but walking and it’s not so easy reading and walking at the same time!

Favourite Book

Starring Kitty There are not enough words in the dictionary to describe how much I loved this book. (But you can see my full and lengthy and gushing review of it tomorrow!) This book was a book that blew me away. It was quick, addictive, beautiful, emotional, heart-warming and just super lovely and hope-fulfilling. It is the kind of book that just makes you feel everything and then leaves you feeling good about life at the end of it – kind of like those brilliant family movies! It was everything I needed it to be and more. It is a truly inspiring book written by someone with exceptional talent. I don’t want to gush too much or you’ll probably by-pass it but if you haven’t read this book, I really, really recommend you change that!


Books Read

Four Stars

trouble

Queen Sardine and Princess Persia by Kate Willis-Crowley; I thought the first book in this series was really cute and I feel very much the same way about this book as well. It was a quick and entertaining read, great for younger readers! (And cat-lovers!)

Trouble by Non Pratt; I should have read this book months ago! It was one that I truly enjoyed from start to finish and I cannot wait to dive into Remix next! It was a very entertaining and heart-warming story.

Nashville Mercy by M. Maitland DeLand; This book was a complete surprise to me. I’d never read anything by the author before but the synopsis caught my attention and I was glad. This book was very well written and very addictive!

Solitaire by Alice Oseman; I loved this book so much. I loved the main characters. I loved the plot. I loved the relationships. I loved it all SO much. I had one minor issue with something that happened at the end that put me off a little but aside from that, I loved everything about this book.

Dragon Amber by C. J. Busby; The second book in this trilogy was one that I really enjoyed. It was entertaining, fun, and had a very cool plot hidden at its centre. I love all the characters in this series and cannot wait to see how it all comes together in the end!

The Three by Sarah Lotz; I knew this book was going to be good, I had no idea how much I was going to enjoy it though. It was a completely new style to me

Five Stars

Starring Kitty

Starring Kitty by Keris Stainton; For all the reasons above and many, many more. It’s obvious now to see why this is my favourite book of the month, right?
