Hello everyone! It’s finally time for my March Wrap Up. This month went so quickly for me. I managed to read and review 8 books. I have a few books that I did finish, but haven’t written a review for them yet, so they will go on top of the April list.

I have also continued with my Down The TBR Hole Tag and I am excited to see what progress I will make this year. Below are all four posts I did this month:

Books I read:

monthly wrap up march once upon a river the guilty party to best the boys romanov blog blogging book books goodreads netgalley

Once Upon A River by Diane Setterfield – โ˜…โ˜…

Once Upon a River by Diane Setterfield is a story that had the perfect plot potential to be amazing, but it didnโ€™t deliver at all. As a huge fan of storytelling, this was a big disappointment for me, the biggest one so far in 2019.ย 

Goodreadsย 

Blood Moon: Part 1 by S. Yurvati – โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…

A beautiful writing, but a confusing adventure, mixed with Out-Of-Earth creatures that donโ€™t really appear until the end of the book, a very disturbing plot, however, a very promising ending as well. I canโ€™t say I enjoyed this book, but it did leave me curious to read the next one.ย 

Goodreads

The Guilty Party by Mel McGrath – โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…

A mystery that left me curious until the very end. A psychological paradise of a thriller that captures people at their very worst, right when they realise their lives are at stake. These people did nothing. But that doesnโ€™t mean theyโ€™re innocentโ€ฆย 

Goodreads

To Best The Boys by Mary Weber – โ˜…โ˜…

The blurb sounds so good, and the cover is gorgeous. I hate to say this, but the book seems like an unfinished draft. It seemed so promising, and all I thought I would get out of this was non-existent.

Goodreadsย 

Beast Rider by Tony Johnston – โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…

A fantasy that stays true to many young people, that dare cross a border, searching for a better life. A fantasy, but also a cruel reality of what truly happens to these young boys and girls, and all the journeys they have to go through, fighting for a better tomorrow.

Goodreads

Romanov by Nadine Brandes –ย โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…

A wonderful and magical tale, with a history behind it of a mysterious family, especially their end โ€“ this book brought tears on my eyes and made me think about the power of forgiveness and love. A true masterpiece.

Goodreadsย 

The Battle of Trafalgar Square – David Winship –ย โ˜…โ˜…

I dived into โ€˜โ€™The Battle of Trafalgar Squareโ€™ not knowing what to expect. This is a book where two pigeons are the main characters and through dialogue and presentation they share this historic battle, but from their point of view.

Goodreads

The Devil’s Apprentice (The Great Devil War #1) – Kenneth B. Andersen –ย โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…

Possibly the best Young-Adult Fantasy I have read this year. Enter and discover Hell and see how it works, meet the Devil and learn why we need evil in order to be good! A fantastic story and great adventures await in Hell. Read this at your own risk!ย

    Wow! That’s a lot of books. I admire you for having a lot of time to read. I’m into Korean Dramas so I spend my free time watching series. I think I should read at least one book this month. Romanov by Nadine Brandes sounds interesting.

  2. Empress DJ April 2, 2019 / 2:09 am

    Yikes, I have Once Upon a River on my list…

  3. Michael David Oyco April 2, 2019 / 2:51 am

    You are an inspiration to many who still read books and the numbers are piling. Please continue.

    The Devil’s Apprentice reads very interesting. YA novels are very interesting for adults to read and I even enjoy some of the movies.

  5. On my Book Shelf April 2, 2019 / 3:43 am

    wow. I really wanted to to read Once upon a river.

  6. Jo Linsdell April 2, 2019 / 9:09 am

    Sounds like you’ve been busy.

      Thank you Jo!

  7. Whispering Stories April 2, 2019 / 10:29 am

    What a great set of books. I’ve only read The Guilty Party.

  8. Jess April 2, 2019 / 10:32 am

    The guilt party sounds good and is definitely not what I thought it was about after reading the title! You’re also amazing for reading 8 books in a month I’m struggling with 1.

    • innah96 April 2, 2019 / 10:41 am

      Thank you Jess! As soon as you find a genre you really enjoy, you will be okay. Let me know if you need any recommendations.

      Thank you!

    Looks like you had a big month! Sorry to see some of them were less than great. They’re all new to me!

  10. Amanda McGill April 2, 2019 / 7:35 pm

    The Guilty Party sounds really good! Looks like you had a great reading month!

  11. mamabee1981 April 2, 2019 / 8:22 pm

    Oh to have time to read again. I haven’t read a good book in forever, I am going to have to keep some of these on my list to get reading soon!

  12. bookswithkathy April 2, 2019 / 10:59 pm

    You had a good month even with the 2 star reads.

  13. Marjie Mare April 3, 2019 / 1:19 am

    March was filled with great opportunities for me. I only read 2 books which is my goals, 2 books a month. I can’t wait to read about your month of April.

  14. Allie Bock April 3, 2019 / 5:33 pm

    You had a busy March!

  15. genaadventure April 4, 2019 / 3:56 pm

    That’s a really nice selection! Adding some books to my April “must read” list ๐Ÿ™‚

  16. toastycritic April 4, 2019 / 3:57 pm

    I’m going to have to read a few of these books. They look great. I want to read the Devil’s apprentice. They all look fascinating though.

    Sad to see Once Upon A River didnโ€™t work for you since thatโ€™s on my TBR list!
