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:
Once Upon a River by Diane Setterfield is a story that had the perfect plot potential to be amazing, but it didn’t deliver at all. As a huge fan of storytelling, this was a big disappointment for me, the biggest one so far in 2019.
A beautiful writing, but a confusing adventure, mixed with Out-Of-Earth creatures that don’t really appear until the end of the book, a very disturbing plot, however, a very promising ending as well. I can’t say I enjoyed this book, but it did leave me curious to read the next one.
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 doesn’t mean they’re innocent…
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.
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.
A wonderful and magical tale, with a history behind it of a mysterious family, especially their end – this book brought tears on my eyes and made me think about the power of forgiveness and love. A true masterpiece.
I dived into ‘’The Battle of Trafalgar Square’ 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.
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!

You read a good amount of books this month! I’ve heard great things about Romanov.

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.
Yikes, I have Once Upon a River on my list…
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.
wow. I really wanted to to read Once upon a river.
Sounds like you’ve been busy.
Thank you Jo!
What a great set of books. I’ve only read The Guilty Party.
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.
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.
Looks like you had a successful month!
Looks like you had a big month! Sorry to see some of them were less than great. They’re all new to me!
The Guilty Party sounds really good! Looks like you had a great reading month!
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!
You had a good month even with the 2 star reads.
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.
You had a busy March!
That’s a really nice selection! Adding some books to my April “must read” list 🙂
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 didn’t work for you since that’s on my TBR list!
