March Wrap Up 2020

Hello everyone! Welcome to my March Wrap Up! It’s a bit late as I read a lot of books in the last 48 hours of March, so without further ado, here is what I read in March!


TBR CHECK-IN


My March TBR was mega ambitious, seeing as it had 12.5 books on it, which is about as much as I read in January and February combined! Despite this, I feel like I was really quite successful! I read, DNF’d or unhauled all but one book, which I am currently reading. I also read 4 of the 6 books that I wanted to for the #FemmeFanTale readathon (the others were DNF’d later).

I DNF’d three books this month: The Midnight Lie by Marie Rutkoski, The Magic Toyshop by Angela Carter, and The Flatshare by Beth O’Leary. You can find my full review for The Midnight Lie here.

I also unhauled We Are Cuba, because I was only reading it to help me study for an exam that I no longer have to take because… coronavirus.

March TBR: TBR Round 1, #FemmeFanTale

Hello everyone and welcome to my very belated March TBR! (To be honest, I’ve made some progress through this already, but no matter.)

If you haven’t seen my previous post, I recently created a TBR game, and this is the first month that I’m going to be trying it out! I will also be participating in the #FemmeFanTale readathon as well!

A to Z Book Tag

Hello everyone! I was tagged by the lovely Meeghan @Meeghan reads and bakes to do this, so I hope you enjoy! There are a lot of questions, so I’ve done my best to keep the answers short.

The original creator of this tag is Jamie @The Perpetual Page Turner.


AUTHOR YOU’VE READ THE MOST BOOKS FROM

This is actually quite difficult… maybe Raine Thomas, or Quinn Loftis? They both write fun fantasy romances and I went through a real phase of them. I still reread them from time-to-time when I feel like just doing some light reading.

BEST SEQUEL EVER

A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas- one of the rare times that the second book in a series is the best book.

Wow (from Strong Woman Do Bong Soon)

TOP 4 ANTICIPATED RELEASES OF 2019

Last year I read very few 2018 releases (read: one) and whilst I don’t generally fixate on new releases a lot anyway, I do like to read some. So, I thought I would share with you guys 4 books which I am waiting to read when they come out this year!

Winter Wonderland Book Tag

Hi everyone and welcome to day 10 of A Very Posty December! Today we’ve finished off the last of the GOT7 posts and I figured it was a good time to bring back some festive spirit with a wintry book tag! Enjoy.


#1: What book is so happy and sweet it warms your heart?

Okay… but is there really another answer?


#2: What’s your favourite book with a white cover?

This book (obviously) has a predominantly white cover. It was also one of the most heart-shattering and heart-warming books I have ever read and thrives in the paradox. 

Reading this book is not simply absorbing a new world, but embarking on an emotional journey in which you can be tossed around my hurricanes, spat out hundreds of miles away by tornadoes and drowned by tsunamis the size of large skyscrapers. 

If you were to only read five contemporary books in your entire life, this should definitely be one of them. 


#3: You’re sitting in a nice, comfortable chair with a cup of tea. What monster book are you reading?

I don’t even know anything about Sarah J. Maas’ next book, but I know that I really want to read it… and given the length of her recent books it may well be a monster book!

To be fair, I might still be a bit in denial that the Throne of Glass series has ended… I’ve been reading that for a good 4 or 5 years and it’s all over….. 😦

I wonder what she has in store for us next…


#4: It’s snowing outside and you decide to have a snowball fight. What fictional character do you want to have this snowball fight with?

Hagrid is the personification of the gentle giant… in book character form. Having a snowball fight with him would be a blast and he would definitely know where all the best spots were!


#5: Sadly, your campfire is dying. What last few chapters of a book would you throw in the fire to revive it and keep yourself warm?

There are not words to describe how much I hate this book. Forget the last few chapters, the entire thing can be sacrificed for my warmth (or at least given away so I never have to look at it again, because I don’t support book burning).


#6: What book do you love so much that you would buy another copy of it to give someone as a gift to inspire them to start reading?

To be fair, this might not be the best book for someone who is starting to get into reading, as it is written in a very lyrical way, which can slow down the pace of the story a bit. That being said, it’s an absolute masterpiece and I love it, so I decided to include it anyways!


#7: Who do you tag?

Okay, so I’m going to tag Kat, Bianca, Vicky, Fadwa and The Orang-utan Librarian, but if you want to do this tag, feel free to do so and link back to me so that I can read your post! Equally if I’ve tagged you, don’t feel that you have to do the tag!


And that’s it! Did you enjoy? Let me know by leaving a comment… I love hearing from you guys. Happy reading, Keira x.
