March 2017 Monthly Wrap Up – What I Read This Month

My Month: This month has been so good. My energy levels has been a lot higher than it has been before. I’m really starting to believe that I will get 100% healthy in the future.

My Blog Month: It has been a really good blogging month. I have been posting a lot, and my views are the best they have ever been. I’m also almost at 300 wordpress subscribers, yay! Thank you for following, reading and commenting on my blog.

This month I have started posting a new weekly post called Sunday Weekly Update. In this post I will update you on what I’m reading and what I have been doing that week. This post is also like a diary for me to go back and read later.

My Reading Month: My reading month has been good. I have finished a total of 6 books, plus some books that I’m in the middle of reading. 1 of the books on my list fits the Beat The Backlist Challenge. And 1 of the books on the list fits the 2017 Dystopian Reading Challenge.

I read a total of 2510 pages this month.

The Hostile Hospital by Lemony Snicket

Book 8 in A Series of Unfortunate Events

This is the 5th book I’m reading from this series in just a few months (I read the first 3 last year). Even though I love the writing and find the narrator really funny, I’m starting to get bored of it. This series is really dragged out, and the books are starting to get very repetitive. This book was unnecessary, and to be honest I just want the series to end. 2.5 stars.

The Carnivorous Carnival by Lemony Snicket

Book 9 in A Series of Unfortunate Events

I’m still really bored of this series and I have to take a break from it. I liked this book a bit better than the previous one, but still not my favorite. 3 stars

Starflight by Melissa Landers

Book 1 in Starflight

I liked this book. The plot was fast paced and fun to read, but not anything really special or/and exciting. I got a really strong Firefly (the tv show) association from the setting, since the majority of the story is set on a trading spaceship. The romance was just ok, again nothing special, but it was cute at times. One thing that really bugged me was how fast Solara (the main character) forgave Doran (the love interest/other MC) after years of bullying. 3 stars

One of Us Is Lying by Karen M. McManus

This book is so good. It is fast past and interesting, and I just could not put it down. The book was told from the perspective of the 4 teenagers who are linked to the death of Simon, a fellow classmate. The 4 points of view was executed really good, and we got to know the characters well and see them grow. The mystery part was really interesting and exciting. I was hooked from the first page. Brilliant debut from the author Karen M. McManus, and I highly recommend this book. 4.5 stars

Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

Book 1 in Shatter Me

My biggest problem with this book was the writing. This made it hard for me to get into the story, but I pushed on and halfway through it started to grow on me. The book was fast paced with a lot of action. I found the main character’s abilities interesting, it is always fun when characters have supernatural powers. Even though it was just an ok book, I want to continue with the series to see where it goes. 3 stars

The Magicians by Lev Grossman

Book 1 in The Magicians

I’m not sure if I like this book or not. I found the story and the setting interesting, but there is something about it that I didn’t like. It can be that it was too fast paced for me, 4-5 years (I’m not sure) are packed into 400 pages. I also found the main character Quentin to be very unlikable. It really bugged me how mad he was at Alice for sleeping with another person, when he was the one who cheated first. He didn’t see his own fault, and justified it because he was drunk and she was not. This is not ok. 3 stars

      1. I didn’t like the main character, and there were too many references to other books that I had read to enjoy it. There were also times where I got bored.
