March was a complete mess of a month. It came quickly, it was over quickly, and I feel like I accomplished absolutely nothing. I only managed to complete 3 books (and one 30 page play) during March, which is pathetic seeing how quickly I was reading during January/February. However I did start university this month, so I think that allows me a little break from my regular (absolutely overwhelming) reading habits!
1. Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard – I really enjoyed reading this book. Within the first hundred pages I was definitely hooked, and already felt an attachment to the world. The only downside I really found was that I didn’t have any emotional tether to the actual characters, despite the amazing world that Victoria had created. Check out more of my thoughts in my review. 3.5 stars.
2. The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins – I don’t want to go into too much detail on this one, since I’m still planning on writing a review, but I really did enjoy this one. Whether that was because I was on a psychological thriller kick, or because I found myself captivated by the story and desperate to find out what happened, I’m not sure, but I do know that I thoroughly enjoyed reading this one. 4 stars.
3. A Feast for Crows by George R. R. Martin – Although this was my least favourite out of all the Game of Thrones books, I still thoroughly enjoyed reading this! Since my favourite characters weren’t included, I found myself trying to immerse myself in my lesser-liked characters plots, which I actually found great. I now really enjoy reading from Jamie’s and (!!!) Cersei’s P.O.V, which is something I never thought I would say! I still felt like it was lacking something though – so I’m definitely excited to read the next book and find out what the characters up north have been up to (I need more Dany, please). 4 stars.
I can’t believe I didn’t even finish a graphic novel this month. I feel a little disappointed at myself, but at the same time I’m relatively pleased that I managed to do this. Heck, I finished the last half of A Feast for Crows! I didn’t do too shabby.
