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

February was a very hard month for me. I was away for two weeks, and even though I tried to catch up as much as I could with my reading, I havenโ€™t read as much books as I wanted to. See the books I have read below – as usual, click on the book title for a link to my book review.

I focused on my TBR and all the books that I have recently received by authors and publishers. Thank you to all of you, for sending me your books, and donโ€™t worry – I havenโ€™t forgotten about you – I will continue to read your books in March and finish off my never-ending reading 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:

๐ŸŒŸTBR Hole #17 ๐ŸŒŸ TBR Hole #18 ย ๐ŸŒŸ TBR Hole #19 ๐ŸŒŸ TBR Hole #20 ๐ŸŒŸ

January 2019 – Monthly Book Wrap Up

monthly wrap up - january book blog diary of difference children of blood and bone nicholas sparks tomi adeyemi leigh bardugo

January was a great start of the year, I made my goal to read 60 books (last year I read 70, and I think that I will read more, but I wanted to not be under pressure throughout the year, as I will be doing a lot of travels with my daily job).

I focused on the upcoming ARCs that are being published soon and a lot of books that I was sent by authors, but I also found time to read a few pleasure reads, of which some I loved, but some left me quite disappointed.

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:

๐ŸŒŸTBR Hole #13 ๐ŸŒŸ TBR Hole #14 ย ๐ŸŒŸ TBR Hole #15 ๐ŸŒŸ TBR Hole #16 ๐ŸŒŸ

Books I read this month:

An Anonymous Girl by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen – โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…

Awaken (Northern Witch #2) by K.S. Marsden – โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…

The New Power Eating by Susan Kleiner – โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…

Nights in Rodanthe by Nicholas Sparks – โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…
